That’s who I am

I found this Venn diagram on LinkedIn the other day:

It brought back some very fond memories of jobs I loved. Times where I felt very engaged, worked tirelessly, smiled on the way into the office and felt accomplished at the end of the day.

That’s where I want to work. It may be a full-time job with a company, or a consulting career. The intersection of satisfying, interesting and fun. That’s something I’ll want to do every day.

The soul-sucking days of office politics are over for me. That’s something I’ll never do again.

A connection offered to refer me for a VP position today. I declined.

That’s who I was.

I had an appointment today that I assumed was a meet and greet. It turned into an engaging two-hour conversation about turbo-charging a local company’s content.  I loved it.

That’s who I am.

You may think I’ve lost my mind.

I think I’ve found it.
