Decisions Decisions Decisions

As you know if you’re a regular reader, I’ve accepted a job, and started last week. This job will be sweet. All is going well and I’m starting to settle in. All of the guys I work with are great, and excited about me joining the company. I've had nothing but 100% support.


I had multiple offers, and as such, I had to formally turn those down. Each and every one of them. One company is still after me, and I met with their Senior VP today. I went in with every intention of telling them I’m done, and to leave me alone.


Hearing the VP's vision for the company has me thinking, though. I think I’m supposed to stay where I am at this major service company. But dang, when a Senior VP of a major public company tells you to write your own job description, and it will be a high profile position...do you know how inviting that is to a country gal like me?


Why do I do this to myself?? Arrrrrrrrrgh.


PS - Trey, I know you read this. Don't freak. I'm just debriefing.

Isn't it nice to be wanted?

I believe you've received some good advice from Bob and darsden. (especially Bob...about praying) You are a blessed girl, Janie. Whatever decision you make will be the right one.

I'm wondering if I still have a workable e-mail address for you....

Whew, I'd be struggling with that one too, Janie. That's way cool.

Don't question a decision you made rationally. You're first instinct is usually the best.

All I can offer is this: You work to live, you don't live to work.

If your job supports the life you want to live, then it's enough. If your job becomes the driving influence in your life to the detriment of all else, it's too much.

It must be lovely to be so valued - kudos to you for earning it!

Isn't it great to be so wanted? and not by the cops. or the FBI.

Geo said...

Wow. Talk about an embarrassment of riches! Being you must be a full time job.

So write it! Write your own perfect job description with your perfect salary! Then double it and present it! If they say yes , now you have a decision to make. Before that it is just another journalism assignment.
Love ya

$1 million a month, for the first 6 months. Lamborgini company vehicle. 2 4 hour work days a week--no more or salary doubles for that month. No cell phone or email! They come to you and bow--if you grace them with your time and knowledge-you get % of the ticket. Your husband and brother get jobs at 1\2 of your pay with all benefits and insurance. The company must be renamed after you! You set the price of Intermediate West Texas Crude by whatever mood you are in for that day! If you are blue---Price is $70 but if you are happy-Price is $85. I don't know what it would take to get it to $100.

Trey, cover your ears:

Jeez, Janie, look into it!!!

OK Trey it's safe to look now:

In the end, the big noises and huge promises fall flat....go with the substance....
