Jason Truesdell : Pursuing My Passions

A life in flux. Soon to be immigrant to Japan. Recently migrated this blog from another platform after many years of neglect (about March 6, 2017). Sorry for the styling and functionality potholes; I am working on cleaning things up and making it usable again.

re: How I examined my passions, Part II

On the one hand I'm sorry to hear how your stay at Microsoft went & how unfulfilled you felt for some time there. But on the other hand (as you've said here), you're now able to explore opportunities that really appeal to your passions. I only hope that these opportunities will be financially rewarding enough that you can continue pursuing them.

For much of my life, I've been a professional non profit fundraiser. I liked the idea I was being altruistic in helping good non profits to raise funds to do good in the community. On the other hand, I always seemed to get into conflicts with bosses who were too opinionated, too smug, too dictatorial, etc. Unfortunately (& not by choice), my wife is the main breadwinner & I now stay home w. the kids & blog (when I'm not doing the former). Working for others is always fraught w. conflict & stress. I admire immensely those who can do it and actually find enjoyment in it. Perhaps I can't. I don't know.

How I examined my passions, Part II

sometimes, it is good take a break from the corporate world and focus on what you want to do in life.
