So, it will be a longer, softer Brexit for Target2019. Or one could call it, "the Brexit of least resistance!" I was prepared to just step away completely, but found more benefit to myself in staying longer.
I'm moving to 60% part-time at the end of the month. Work will go on, but as a downhill coast, with less pedaling. My j#b is simple, well-paid, and has a nice view of history outside. Sounds too simple, but I've been happiest when sitting in a cube with two walls instead of three. I'm in a *green* building. The way things heat up on a frigid day is amazing. Looking South, the 10-foot glass wall magnifies the Sun's rays as it traverses East to West in the sky. This is a promising time of the year, when buds first appear on a tree just outside my 4th floor window.
The drive. The DRIVE. THE DRIVE! Much less of that soon enough, as I expect two days driving most weeks. Hours are flexible, so I'll move hours here and there to my benefit.
One surprise of this final j#b is how I'm appreciated by the customer. During the rest of 2019 I'll try to find a way for our small company to get ready for 2020. Yes, it is OMPTY (One More Part Time Year) for me. I may use OMPTY as one of my company goals.
One thing's for sure, my reliable yellow flower will soon poke its head up above the cold ground just outside my home office. Some things just happen cause they must.
