Wow, four years ago I put out the call for contributors to join this journey with me on this thing called Performance I Create or better known as PIC (as we have evolved over the years).
We started out with a small group and slowly built the contributor base and the readership. With the fifteen (15) contributors today and those that have come and gone through the years, we have published 450+ blog posts, published two e-Books, and rocked it out at #LASHRM as a kick ass social media team – with several of us also presenting.
It really has been fun over these last four years creating some everlasting memories, but for me, this will be the last year I get to create those memories with these great people. After much reflection, I am making the decision to part ways with Performance I Create….it definitely was not an easy decision, but we all face journeys in our life where a change is required. And I will tell you, this is the right thing for me.
No, there were no fights or sorts to cause me to leave. But rather, I needed a change in life – something besides writing about HR or writing at all. Something like more mountain biking, training for Tough Mudders, experimenting with grain-free recipes, and just enjoying life outside of my day job. I will miss collaborating with the great people who are on the PIC team, but I know we will continue to stay in touch sharing a stupid, funny Vine/YouTube video , ridiculous Meme, or just the casual call to catch up.
So, what is going to happen to Performance I Create?
Well….it will move forward with everyone who is currently on the PIC team, minus me.
I know these fantastic folks will continue to make the Performance I Create site even better and you can hear them share their journey this week on Drive Thru HR! That is right, just like we celebrated our 3rd year anniversary, we are also celebrating our 4th year anniversary on #DTHR.
Here is the schedule (12p CST, 1p EST):
May 8th: PIC Takeover with Dave Ryan, Sarah Williams, & Tiffany Kuehl
Thank you to everyone who has made Performance I Create the great site it is today – contributors and readers!!! It is only going to get better from here….
