NO FATE BUT WHAT WE MAKE FOR OURSELVES
So I'm sitting at my desk this afternoon when I get an e-mail from one of the production coordinators on our team. She wants to know if anyone on our team wants new business cards and to fill in the form if we do.
I just stared at the e-mail for a bit. This is an opportunity to get business cards from EA. If you've been with us since the beginning, you know business cards have a certain influence on my life. I outlined it in an earlier post. Essentially, everytime I've received business cards, I've quit my job within 45 days of getting them.
Mind you, I've only got business cards twice in my life but I'm batting a thousand so far. So you can understand my conflict when I got the e-mail. On one hand, I don't want to tempt fate because I really do like my job. On the other hand, EA business cards would be really nice.
I think this is an excellent chance for me to break this crazy cycle. While I certainly was entertaining thoughts of leaving those two previous jobs when I got the cards, I have no such thoughts this time around with EA. I believe I'm going to go for it!
I'll check in with you about 45 days from when I get the cards.
