This past weekend we were all flown down to our Apollo Beach office for the company Christmas party. I got to spend a fair amount of time with our COO who lives near Washington DC. I also spent quite a bit of time with our Sales Manager.
Through a number of valuable discussions with them, I had a bit of a light bulb moment. This whole time I’ve been pushing myself, trying to figure out why I’m not more advanced in my career than I thought I would be by now. These two people are near or in their fifties. They have been at this much longer than I have. I still have time to figure things out; I’m still figuring out what I want to do for a living. Of course I’m not further along in my career.
With this realization, a weight lifted off my shoulders. Granted, I’m human, so that means that the weight will probably come back, but I’m a work in progress.
