This is an exercise that is supposed to help one develop and maintain a higher amount of happiness as explained in an online course i took last month[1]. "Write a forgiveness letter." I'm just going to meditate on a block

Dear G- H-:

As we've discussed, this is a confusing assignment. The ED doesn't really know what he wants; you and the other D are not agreement how to move forward. You agreed with me that we (as an organization) don't agree on certain points and continue to pretend the conflicting expectations aren't there. On top of this, we are pushing the data models further from our customers' understanding of the structures.

So I know that your "future state" has much more to do with politics than with ... meaning. Exercise in chart junk? But it still hurt to not have my draft of the answers reflected in the areas where our team is responsible. It's nothing personal, it's just business: i know. I think i'll judge accordingly and lower my effort and investment.


I guess that's forgiveness per the definition the program gave. I certainly feel a little more clear about what to do next.
