A saw the sign

I have done nothing but chew on the interview from yesterday, doing pros and cons, looking at where I am and where I’d be going to, what I gain by staying or going, and what I’d lose. The only pro that I can see to pursuing this job is a pay raise. I woke up at 3 am and started the whole mental process all over again over the next two hours until I had to get up. But I kept mulling it over

while I was in the shower

while I was getting dressed

while I was making breakfast

while I was driving to work

And then, while I was sitting in my car, in the parking garage at work, waiting for my building to open, I popped onto Facebook and saw this post in my feed from a page I follow called “Tao of the Giraffe”

It was just too perfect a coincidence to ignore the message. As soon as I get to my desk, I’m sending an email to the interviewing team and letting them know I’m withdrawing my name from consideration for the position.

Because the job that I have – this is enough.

  1. Sounds like you’ve now gone with the heart rather than your head, which is usually the correct way to go. It took guts, and you’ve just proved you’ve got some. Well done.
