I’ve always wanted to be on the east coast. In fact, I’ve wanted it for a long time, but I see now that I wasn’t ready until now. I had to let go of things that were holding me back, stop trying to plan every little thing, and just learn to go with the flow.
It started at the beginning of last year, when I expressed to my boss during my performance review that I’d be interested in opportunities on the east coast. At that time, there was no reason to believe this was possible given that our department didn’t have an office, customer, or even a supplier on the east coast, but hey, it doesn’t hurt to ask, right? Although my boss acknowledged it, he warned me that this was likely not going to happen any time soon, let alone by the end of the year.
At the end of the year, my boss asked me if I was still interested in opportunities on the east coast. Incredible.
