Greetings! Welcome to my Brainstorm Party!
Big changes are afoot at Day Job. The what-this-means-for-me of it all is this: I need to transition to What's Next sooner rather than later. If the current transition timetable holds, I can squeeze at least three more years out of my current situation. Pursuing similar work elsewhere is above "flipping burgers" and "being a greeter at Wal-Mart" on my list of possibilities, but not a whole lot above them.
I need to figure out what What's Next looks like. Ideally, I would like to have a fairly clear vision of my next destination by the end of summer and start working toward it in the fall.
Part of the strategy is to declutter and organize my home AND my office, implement some sort of system of organization (possibly GTD with Ann McGee-Cooper-inspired tweaks), and simplify my current job and other responsibilities as much as possible to allow maximum time and energy for working toward What's Next.
Book and/or website recommendations?
Things to consider?
Transition advice from your experience?
Anything else that might be of help?
