Should I Stay or Should I Go?

It's a nice little office
It’s a nice little office

It’s a nice little office really, but I’ve spent the past 36 years in workplaces just like this – all quite nice, but am I happy and fulfilled? Not really! Words from the Clash song immediately come to mind – “Should I stay or should I go?”. Anne’s post has already answered that question. We have decided to run away together. Whilst it will be sad to leave the close friends I have made at work, a world of opportunity awaits….and let’s face it – its only for 6 months.

I’m Steve, a public servant and qualified accountant with an MBA in international business. Work is not my passion. Family, friends, cycling and music (I play sax and have a band) share that honour. I’m very excited about the adventure that’s in front of us and look forward to being part of the story we will share.

    How envious of you both – you have life worked out well and are taking the time to savour its delights. A great inspiration to us all

      Thanks Sue – it certainly is time to savour the delights. Anne & I are giving it a red hot shot. We’ll only have ourselves to blame if we don’t.

    Hey Steve and Anne…I am very envious, as no doubt are your other friends and readers. Anyway I will follow your adventures with interest and, all things being equal, about the time you get back I will be throwing off this current daily yoke for good. I don’t know if I ever told you that for quite a few years I had my own blog. I let it lapse some years ago about the time Facebook started ascending as the means for communicating. I’ll send you the details separately, it might provide you with a few laughs – or the opposite – in your idle moments if you have any. Bon voyage.

      Thanks Phil – the daily yoke can become a burden. Anne and I are hoping that our proactive approach to change through this adventure will re-focus us on the things that matter. Let’s stay in touch.

Hi, I'd love to hear what you have to say.
