I have never been fired, but “fired myself” (by transferring, applying for a promotion or switching companies) over and over because I feared the inevitable. Once there’s no longer something new to learn, my motivation drops and my productivity becomes like molasses. If I don’t either find a new, really hard challenge, or move on, I’ll end up ruining my own achievements in no time flat! I’m definitely in an ever so slow downard spiral right now, and now that I see the writing on the wall, I know I have to start making my exit plan before it’s too late… I’m in a profession where you’re supposed to stay about 5 years at a job, and I’m only 2 1/2 years along – do I find a way to stay, or move on despite the short tenure? I liked how you put it toofat – for me also there is definitely a shelf life, peaking out kind of thing. It’s agonizing sometimes, but it actually keeps pushing me to move onward and upward. I hope by learning more about ADD, I can get my act together better and not feel like I’m wearing out my welcome at jobs… They’re probably picking my billions of post-it’s out of the carpet a year after I’m gone!!
