There comes a point where it’s time to move on. Things end, and it’s time to move to something new. You start to see that you have nothing left to contribute. So, does this mean that your company needs to die, or that you need to leave the company? No. It just means you need to find someone who can pick up and improve the process you were in charge of and let you do something fresh and move your intelligence and skills to a new problem or process and make it work as well.
Or sometimes it’s time to move on yourself. More than once I have seen people massively improve many lives by moving on. The company they leave improves, because new blood is introduced, and the person who left also becomes new blood.
So what’s the point?
The point is it’s probably time for me to move on. I am getting sick of this place. It’s not that I think the place is inherently terrible, but the combination of me and this place is getting toxic.
So now the scary part. Moving into the rest of the world.
It’s also kinda exciting.
