From Whitedust, I was pointed to this interesting article about employees who have left Google. I am inspired by hearing that a number of these people were far older than I am now when they started at Google. Sometimes one gets bogged down with that thought that only happenin’ things occur to the brightest students fresh out of college doing amazing things. That’s the flashy story you always hear. That if you don’t jump up high enough out the doors onto the rungs of the career ladder, you’ll burn out before getting up higher where you want to be. Really, that’s not true, and that’s something to continue to look forward to through my entire career and life, to be honest.
