I’ve been stressing really bad all week. The time had come for me to send in my resignation to my company, Thermo Fisher. I’ve been working with them for over three years and it is in large part due to my success there that I have the funds to take a few years off to go sailing. My boss and I still need to sort out some details, but he was initially very supportive. My fear was that it would be taken badly as I’ve seen too many people get let go in a manner you wouldn’t believe. However, since I am not going to a competitor, or even into a related market, all is well.
Lately I’ve been thinking about all the deadlines I’ve been driven by as well. Even the countdown timer is a deadline that I’ve artificially imposed on myself. Odds are I’ll be leaving in November, but it doesn’t really matter if it’s November 10th or December 10th. What I suddenly have is a lot of time. That is the exact opposite of where I’ve been for the last six years. This evening will be spent unwinding a bit with two of my best friends from my days up in Washington State. Here is to learning to relax and marking major milestones. For the first time in my life I’ve chosen the route of greatest fulfillment instead of greatest financial benefit. Let’s see where this goes….
