The discussion didn't end well. I gave the matter some.thoughts and decided to talk to more people.
After that, I realised I might be jumping from one hot pan to another.
Made me feel better although nothing much has changed. I do not think I will continue that venture.
Another blogger made me realise there is a big difference being wanting to start your own business and wanting to be self-employed.
So... I decided to be manwhore one more time. Since now I have a different boss and going to have a different job scope next year.
I given up my chance for any future promotion or pay increment with this lateral movement to another job scope. But I am very happy.
Today, I finished my last appraisal work. No more. While I know there will be plenty of challenges in the future, I know I will be more at peace. Better to do what I am good at then trying to convince myself that I can do something I no longer believed in well
I really like the 3 questions Jack Ma asked himself. What do I have? What can I do to what I have? What I am willing to give up for what I have.
I know what I am not willing to give up just yet. So is time to shut down and be at peace.
I might still keep that option open and look it for various angles.
Here is a picture I find really interesting.
The grass is always greener at the other side; there is always a more shitty job.
