There really is no use in sweating on the When, the Why or the How to do things. When the reason is clear, and the time is right, how to deal with the problem will be clear. It always solves itself and no amount of hand wringing or planning will make a jot of difference.
Today I rang my boss and offered my resignation from a job I thoroughly enjoyed on many levels. It was a task I had been putting off. To mis-quote Derek and Clive, this was the best job I ever had.
I offered an alternative option which today, of all days, seemed completely appropriate. The alternative was an offer to take 7 months leave without pay (LWOP) as a cheeky attempt to keep my job reserved for our return, just ahead of the Hurricane Season in the Caribbean. Or resign.
He chose the alternative option so I am totally stoked !.
