Nothing Good Can Come Of It

Having a low view right now of the prospects for my current company and for my potential to develop into any interesting roles within this company. Having an itch to walk away from it and find somebody who knows what they are doing and cares enough to do it right–not just successfully making money, but doing what should be done. Quality. Customer Service. Commitment. Those kinds of things. Nothing good can come out of this place.

And Nathanael said to him, “Can anything good come out of Nazareth?”

The problem is, I never would have chosen this company in the first place. I didn’t know it existed and if I had known it existed I would not have known that it could use someone with my talents. And once I got my first job here I would have never thought my second job would be in a part of the plant that I knew nothing about from my first job. And when I was thinking about the job I have now I would never have guessed that it would be the best way for me to survive this year’s layoffs–I thought it would be worse than what I had before.

If I am master of my own career, it is high time for me to start at least preparing to find another job somewhere else. You always need a back-up plan, you know. A safety net.
