I have one week in between my last position and my new one. One week to get my life in order - and everything neatly and nicely organized so that when I spring into action in my new role I'm stress and worry free. Yeah, right. I didn't think changing jobs would be stressful enough so we decided to sell our house at the same time... and of course, it sold right away. New employer, meet your new homeless executive.
Every few years I make a change like this, and every single time it is refreshing to go through it. Makes you realize what all the people you are hiring go through every time they go through our "process".
Well, so far the down week has been productive... and my to do list is chock full for the rest of the week, or the rest of the "down week". I can't wait to relax on Sunday before I start the new gig. ;-)
