Here is where the rubber meets the road. I knew I had to leave. I knew what I wanted and what I valued. Those exercises solidified the fact that I really, truly needed to depart the cubicle. It was cold as hell, the commute was killer and, oh wait- it was doing nothing for my life.
When I first heard the term “reverse engineering,” I latched onto it. I absolutely loved the concept, because it completely flipped the equation. Instead of figuring out each next step, one after the other, reverse engineering is taking the final product (or goal) and taking it apart to see how it works (how it comes to be).
