This is just a heads up to say – oh hey, I’m headed off to Florida and the land of fresh orange juice, sunshine, beaches and piers.
Basically, all of my favorite things.
Note: I realize that’s California not Florida. Gratuitous Pier Photos From Florida to Follow.
For all intents and purposes, this is my out of office.
I did something really crazy back in October. I left a comfortable job I’d been in for 2.5 years, a great salary, incredible benefits and major job security, to pursue my passion and my dreams.
I went from a job meant to be an in-between job to a job so close to my dream job, if I could puke rainbows I would. Of course with that came adapting to startup hours and a certain job dedication not everyone gets. But I love it. And I realized that, working for a startup, I was embracing not only a career but a lifestyle change.
It was the end of the Out of Office. And that’s ok.
While Florida is a workation (work till noon – R&R in the afternoon – hop online in the evening), NYC later in April is a vacation. But regardless of what letters fall before the “ation” – one thing stands true.
I’m way too in love with my career, my lifestyle, to really take a break from it.
So this blog post is my new form of the traditional out of office and I hope to write many more of these in my lifetime.
