One Down, a Kazillion to Go

Found out yesterday that I didn't get the job I'd had a couple interviews for. Bummer.

I'm going with the theory that it wasn't meant to be and that the universe wants me to experience a little uncertainty for awhile. I'm up for that, but jeez, it would have been so easy: a perfect challenge for my skill set, a little bit of a learning curve, travel to Asia/Pacific and Australia, a 40% bump in pay. I was also looking forward to not living off my severance, and using that to pay off my credit card debt.

The other selling point for me was the chance to go into a new place with a clean slate, a totally empty inbox for all the GTD-ers out there, and start fresh. I was really looking forward to that.
I suppose there's no reason I can't do that on my own, without an office to go to. Just seemed like it would be a really solid delineator.

So I guess this means there's something else out there that will be better for me. I just don't know what that is, which makes me uncomfortable. I'm learning that I like the certainty/stability of things a little more than I thought I did.

And so we move on. The networking continues, as does the journey.

As my friend David said (or found in a fortune cookie), "Relish your freedom and the abundance of opportunities it provides you."
