I’m writing this on the 7th of January, 2021.
It’s been quite possibly, one of the hardest weeks in my entire life.
As I type these words out, there is a meeting my firm is holding, with some of the people that I care and respect the most in this industry.
At a certain point, there would have been slides and awards and prizes meant to recognize me, the firm’s top performer of 2020.
With a Court of the Table award that puts me in the top 3% of consultants in the world, amongst numerous other achievements and accomplishments.
Things that I’ll be honest – I was really looking forward to. Being honored in front of the people I’ve learnt from and competed with.
But I am not there.
I am here. On this bus.
Because I already resigned.
Part of me is still really asking myself this question. I’ve never resigned from anything before.
