In the last forty years I have worked at seven different jobs, all for multiple years, one for nineteen. In each place there has been at least one change of leadership or ownership, sometimes for better sometimes for worse, but always causing a great deal of stress and upheaval. Sometimes I chose to ride it out, sometimes I chose to move on. Now, very suddenly but not unexpectedly, I am again facing this situation. Change comes much harder at sixty than it did at thirty or forty, and I am indecisive about staying or going; there are pros and cons to both. I can't help but wonder what lesson it is that I am supposed to be learning from all of these work transitions, and I hope I get it figured out this time.
