I didn’t realize this until I looked at the calendar on my Surface Pro this afternoon, but I decided to leave Staples and finally take a chance a year ago today.
It’s hard to believe its been a year, but I won’t bore you with stories about some aha moment where everything in the universe told me that I should do what I wanted to do. I won’t pretend like I wasn’t afraid or that I somehow knew that my bills were going to get paid or my power would still be on a month after I left.
I will tell you that a year ago I was scared and desperate and wanted to know what it was like to work with your head instead of your hands. I wanted to know what life felt like for people who took chances and made mistakes. I wanted to know what it was like to like what you do.
Here’s to a year.
