One month


One month from today, I will be unemployed. It’s part of the process to moving to Spain, but I have worked for the same organization for over 12 years. Over those 12 years, I have enjoyed the company of some excellent coworkers, learned some valuable lessons, and created some amazing artifacts for my work. I have built my own capacity to grow and learn, and the natural outcome of this is the move to something new.

calendarTo be honest, this is terrifying and freeing at the same time. I am not a person who is comfortable in that scary “between place” without a clear career goal in mind. Instead, I have been extremely conservative so that I could provide for my family, afford my house, and generally live the life that I had created myself. For me, charting new territory was definitely off-limits.

Now, however, I am stepping out into a new adventure. This is no longer a light at the end of the tunnel, this is feeling the sunlight on my feet as I walk out of the tunnel. With my last four weeks of work at this place ahead of me, what final differences can I make to positively influence my environment? Who can I help? What can I improve?

There’s still plenty of time to make a meaningful difference.
