Snippet: Resigning from Q Branch ☇

Shared on June 2, 2015

Brent Simmons:

I decided to leave because I wasn’t working on the software that I’ve been obsessed with for more than a decade.

I turned 47 a little while ago, and I’ve had some reasons to reflect on the shortness of life, and I realized how very important it is for me to work on the software that I think about every day. I kept putting it off, but every day that I put it off hurt more than the previous day. I realized that I couldn’t continue — I have to do the work that I need to do.

Sometimes you need to sit back and re-evaluate what you’re doing, and if the things that you are doing outside of your day job aren’t satisfying, maybe it’s time to move on. Best of luck to Mr. Simmons.
