I loved this article and I certainly do think you made the right choice! Finding one-self, re-evaluating things among other factors are all important things to consider and I think that leaving Google did more good than harm. I feel like you can either really like this article or you can hate it — all I can say is that it takes intelligence and honesty to give up something like Google in favor of yourself. You worked at Google — you write well — so obviously, you’re not dumb and you didn’t make the wrong choice. Don’t know what the other comment was talking about, but this article is brilliant and I truly do think you made the right move.
