Another year, another airport. Well, I tried to be a full time employee for a while and it just didn’t work out. I think I was better off in consulting. The company and I parted ways amicably … as amicably as possible. As in all break ups, there are always some hard feelings. I wish I could have done more there.
What should I do now? I’ve always wanted to go into business for myself. I guess I did briefly when I was doing independent consulting. I kinda liked that. Maybe that’s what my future will be – or maybe I could become a Buddhist monk and move to Nepal or Tibet? Wouldn’t that be the ultimate freedom?
Do you ever wonder if you are exactly where you are supposed to be? Though I’ve enjoyed success in my career, I’ve not quite put all the pieces together yet. Time for a critical look at my life and an examination of the path that lead me to this point. Often what seems arbitrary and meaningless is packed with meaning and purpose. A great philosopher once said that if we weren’t so self absorbed, life would be utterly boring. I think journaling/blogging is an excellent example of this. At least, if the expectation is that someone will actually read this nonsense.
