… and after I contemplated the implications of moving into the more-responsibility-more-visibility-more-connected position that’s open, as of next week…. I realized that I’ve worked really long and hard to get to the place where I am today — in my own quiet space at work, with a program that I am running myself, without all the stresses that come with large teams and complex projects.
So, I won’t be throwing my hat in the ring for the position that’s just been vacated. I’m sitting tight, making my way in my own fashion, in the ways that work best for me.
If they ask me to step into that role, they need to pay me a lot more money and meet my demands.
But I’m not just tossing away my current situation to go backwards to a kind of role that used to drive me absolutely nuts.
So, that’s that.
