As Time Goes By is not only the theme song of the all-time movie favorite Casablanca, it surely also comes to mind when thinking of how fast the years have flown by since we had decided for signing up to postgraduate studies. It had been a long way to go through two master programs next to a full time job; "a brader Weg" in Austrian dialect. At the same time, it was a self-experiment in practiced change management, conducted in the shadow of the fabulous lindworm, landmark of the university city Klagenfurt, and by coincidence the nickname of an elderly friend with similar surname, who had told me as a young adult that he believed in me. In the end, the investment began to pay off. Looking back at the same personal change journey, we noticed an incredible experience gain during a most intense time period, where we had been stretched up to a point that we almost didn't know any more, which end is up... but only almost that is.
