My Personal Creed of Employment

May 29, 2021

After taking a sabbatical, a time I was very fortunate to spend with my family and children, I was preparing to return to work. As I walked in the park a day before I wrote these thoughts, wanting to capture the perspective I had gained during the recent months. This is a collection of thoughts I had at the time, I wrote them as I walked.

These thoughts are incomplete and lacking context; they do not apply to everyone, but they do apply to me and I reread them when I become frustrated at work and they help me. They are inspired by the good and bad times I have had in my career. They have become my own personal creed of employment, describing the attitude and practices I wish to follow. I hope some of them might help you. Please interpret them charitably, some come from dark places.
