The fact that this was also just when the U.S. economy was taking a big crap in its pants was just a fun coincidence. Here I was walking away from a paycheck when thousands of people a day were finding their own stripped away.
A lot of people asked me whether I had another job lined up. When I told them I didn’t they also crapped their pants.
What the hell was I thinking?
It’s been about 17 months – plenty of time to reflect on that decision, and the following decisions to turn down well-paying jobs at other agencies.
I still don’t know exactly what I’m doing.
But I have a better idea of why I’m doing it.
