Today is my last day at my current job, been here 7.5 years and although I enjoy it, I felt (a while ago) it was time to move onto something different, a new challenge etc. I can't quite tell you what my new job will be for various reasons (not on a public forum anyway), but it's going to be a whole lot more exciting and fulfilling, and I won't be stuck behind a desk all day.
It's pretty daunting, the next 1.5 years are going to be very full on, with a lot of training, and a lot of time away from my partner and baby, but it's all going to be worth it lifestyle and financial wise. I bit the bullet and did it, now I'm at the business end!
Got me thinking about sea changes, I've had one before when I left the full-time Navy, and now it's time for another. Funnily enough I spent 6 years in the Navy, and it was about 2 years ago when I felt I needed to move on with life, so it's a bit of a 6 year cycle for me (7 year itch?).
What about you guys? Have you had sea changes? If so, how did they work out? Do you want a sea change? If so, what's stopping you?
