Steve, kudos to you! I always say that there is no point sticking in a place where you’re changing faster than the organization. And you’re right, in those circumstances the only thing to do is be honest with yourself and your boss and then take that leap of faith to a new environment.

You have no idea how much I needed to see this post today! It is good to know that I am not alone. I recently had been struggling with where I am and where I want to be, as far as my career goes. There is a great book out by Margie Warrell titled, "Stop Playing Safe: Rethink Risk. Unlock the Power of Courage. Achieve Outstanding Success," which has really helped me conquer my fear of failure. I am now ready to take a big risk to do something big! Still trying to figure out what I want to do though.

Your account reminds me of what the Taoist principles applied explicitly to leadership have to say. Specifically, they claim that a leader should not lead by means of having a strategy. Giving up the desire to control may be the reason. It sounds like you were wrestling with this, especially in terms of you and your bosses. You might want to have a look at this essay: http://www.thewordenreport.blogspot.com/2013/04/taoist-leadership.html
thanks for the nice post!

A great simple jewel of wisdom, if you keep doing the same thing the only thing you get will be the same result.
