It’s been a bit of a crazy 48 hours. News travelled of my departure from the company and finally reached the Director of Software Engineering. He immediately called me into his office and wanted to know if we could change things so that I would stay, which is really very flattering, and bound to make anyone stop and think about what they are doing.
The long and the short of it is that after much deliberation and discussion with other UK project managers I finally decided to go with my original decision of leaving. But I very nearly stayed. And the rumour that I was staying was started before I even said it was so, so then I had to explain to people that I really was leaving this time.
I dropped my signed contract into my new offices this evening on the way home, so there is truly no going back now. And I feel good about it, so I think this means I’ve made the right decision. I start in 25 days!
In other news, I’ve updated my projects section again, removing all the pages I had before, as I figured I wasn’t going to get around to filling them all in. Do one thing at a time. Much more efficient, and focused. Yeah.
