Oh, hi friends!

Do you know why you're in your current job?

A friend recently said something to me that I’ve thought about nonstop.

They said, “When I think about the work I do on a daily basis, I don’t really enjoy any of it. I think I only like my job because it makes me feel important.”

Titles and prestige and having a seat at the table can do that. 

And maybe that’s OK…

At least you know why you are where you are.

And maybe that’s not OK…

It could be a sign to do something different.

Admitting it though — that seems like a start. 

Did you see the window first or the door first?

My Little Confession Corner

I’ve been biking around the city. It’s so fun! And freeing! And by “city,” I should clarify — I bike only in parks and in designated bike lanes that are absent all cars and, usually, people. 

I started because I found out you can actually rent a Citibike — New York’s bikeshare program — through the Lyft app for a few bucks per ride. A-whaaa?

(Also, I guess writing this exhaustive “how to use a Citibike” guide last year — #freelancelife — should have tipped me off that this would happen.)

Anyway, this reminded me that it’s exciting to try something new. Agree?
