I switched jobs this month, and alongside a few gracious comments as I transitioned, I experienced a sort of bewilderment that such a dramatic change could occur. It was almost as if leaving a decent role was unfathomable. The I could never leave mindset dominates. But you will leave as well, either by choice or by circumstance. Eventually for an advancement, through a termination, to a retirement, or on a stretcher, you’ll be out the door, and others, in some way, will pick up what you’ve left behind. We should all be mindful of temporality and inevitability in a role, with what we own, and in life. It’s all interim. “You can die tomorrow…who is going to take care of all this crap!” –Margareta Magnusson *
