More Work Stress

On Thursday afternoon, the other developer informed me that the Executive Vice President, who is also one of the company's founders, planned to resign her post that afternoon. He said she was taking on a contract position elsewhere. It was unclear whether she was retaining her stake in the company. The announcement got postponed until Friday. Then on Friday, it got postponed yet again since our CEO stayed home due to illness.

The EVP's departure is not a good omen. The two remaining founders -- the CEO and CTO -- are the less disciplined members of the team. I believe that they are banking the future on whether they can get a deal with the client for whom they prepared a demo last week. That puts my development efforts in limbo. I believe my job search just transitioned from feelers to pavement pounding.

Soothing comes hard at times like this. I must improve my resilience.
