Since I decided to quit, days are lighter, and I have the right state of mind to push things, to do things with my teams I wouldn’t have done if I was still protected by my open-ended contract and my money at the end of the month.
I started noticing little things that turned out to be one of the most important things of my whole experience. People enjoying their creativity, people saying something true and of value to you, like you do between two human beings and not between a manager and an employee.
I feel better. I feel willing to risk something. I feel I can say “no” instead of nodding my head just because “that’s the way”.
I feel that maybe my feedback to some people can really matter. I feel more relaxed.
I’ll try this next time: I will act every day like it is my last day, at work.
I’m gonna focus more on projects, less on fuckin titles and money. Yeah, I get that. Money are important. No doubt on that. I just wanna be part of a badass project, or at least something I think it is.
Let’s see if I’m going to do better next time.
