Rethinking

Have you ever had one of those days that make you question a decision you’ve made? If you haven’t, well, I’m jealous. If you have, you have my sympathies.

I find that about once a month, something will cause me to reevaluate what I’m doing and if I want to continue doing it, or should I start looking for something else. Problems with DNS resolution, SQL errors, uncooperative CSS, and dealing with outdated table-based designs, things can get hair-raising (not to mention confusing when I speak in acronyms.) Thus far, I’ve ultimately decided to keep doing what I’ve been doing, which I imagine makes my clients happy.

It occurs to me that this periodic need to rethinking is actually a good thing.. If we just continue to go through life simply doing what we’re doing, how do we know if its still worth doing?

So I invite you to take a day, a weekend – even just an hour, if that’s all you have, and think about your chose career path. Do you still get the same satisfaction that you did when you started? If not, what has changed? Is there something that you can do to help you recapture that joy and satisfaction ? (Like maybe hiring a virtual assistant to help take some of the auxiliary tasks off your desk – just a suggestion.)

I’d love you hear what conclusions you’ve come to. Won’t you share them with me?
