Today is the last day of my life that I will be 27 years old. Towards the end of my workday, a client tore into me for wasting their time. Given how much I enjoy other people wasting my time, the feedback hit me hard. As usual, I stewed over our exchange through most of my otherwise enjoyable evening, but eventually came up with something better to think about.
What am I looking forward to leaving behind in my 27th year?
I’m a contractor now, and generally that means you wear your man-pants (aka. Carhartts) to work- and a thin skin doesn’t last long in the office. After my gym session tonight, I realized I’m looking forward to leaving behind my willingness to take offense. If you are reading this- I’ll look forward to your help keeping me focused on that goal.
