I didn't quit!!!
Quitting has never been on my vocabulary until this last year of 15 at the same job-academics. I get the summer months off, but that was not enough. Changes in leadership and colleagues was overwhelming. I felt superfluous for the first time in my life...hence, time to move on. BUT WAIT! I downloaded "Fish" a while ago and ran across it yesterday. For such a quick read, this book has a deep impact. I no longer think of quitting, but WILL return this fall making my own attitude choices, because I'm the only one who can; being authentically present for others in addition to my patients; PLAY like no one else can and I used to; and make other's day as I tend to do naturally in other settings. Why not at work? My choice! Best read EVER!!!
Great book! Cute story with lessons everyone should try to follow. :) I had to read this for a leadership class and now I am telling everyone to read it also.
