I think that, more than any words, has improved my self-esteem. Delivering things that people find value in and find helpful to their everyday decision-making and work is great.
I am definitely a generalist, not a specialist. I like tackling the really big problems (asking developers of a 100 different applications, what should the organization's strategic direction be for the next six months?) and doing the intuitive work rather than the specific fingers-to-the-code work.
I do, however, miss Jet. So I'm definitely going back to part-time by September. I just miss my one-on-one time with him, and just being able to interact with him all day. So I'm glad that I can go back to that.
