RANT: New feels Old

  • When you first get a new job, you get that Superman "S" on your chest and want to prove your invincibility. You take on all comers and solve all problems, until you realize you are so busy solving everybody else's little crises that you really don't do any of the new, good, dedicated creative work that made you feel invincible in the first place.
  • Employers look for analysts with specific experience, which as time goes on tends to increasingly fix an analyst into repeating the same old crud day after day and year after year.
  • When presented with "new" opportunities, your experience kicks in and "new" feels "old".
