The last article I published on this site was February 2nd of this year, so let's call it seven months ago.
Where'd I go?
It's a bit of a journey, but to summarize my life for the past seven months:
- I am employed at a full-time job
- My wife is pregnant
- We are looking to purchase a home
The difference between my life on February 2nd when I wrote that last article and now is fairly huge, and the biggest news pertaining to this audience is likely the first piece, that I'm now working at a "normal" 9-5 job again.
My goal in the next series of articles is to dive into what led me to pursue a traditional job structure again, what it's been like, and what I'm learning.
Part of the reason I paused my writing was because I had thought that going back to a regular job structure would either disqualify me to write about work, or that I wouldn't really learn much that I didn't already know before.
I'm finding the opposite to be true. What I learned through reading and exploration hasn't disappeared, and I'm filled with ideas and thoughts about work as I myself go through it.
One major advantage is that I no longer have to try and view my old career through the lens of new knowledge, but am now able to apply new concepts in real time to see how they work. This is allowing me to draw conclusions that will help my readers (that's you!) gain insight into their own work.
I'm practicing a new writing habit (likely to become a post in a few months if it proves out), so expect to see a more consistent flow of posts from this blog going forward.
In summary: The Little Yes lives and will carry on it's mission of helping people find work satisfaction, primary through the form of blog posts.
I hope you stick around for the ride, because I think it will be a good one.
