In the movie Serenity, actor Chiwetel Ejiofor plays a character with no name, a “true believer” who is working tirelessly away to create a better world. Unfortunately, because of the way he goes about it, there is no way he can be part of that world.
I’ve found myself in a similar situation. Having put some time into a project, and seen it reach a certain level of success (and learned some painful lessons in the process) it seems there’s nothing much left to keep me involved anymore.
Had anyone else had that kind of experience? What’s been the hardest part of letting go for you?
