If you leave tomorrow, the company you work for will continue with their business as usual.
It doesn’t matter if you are doing great work. It doesn’t matter if everybody loves you. It doesn’t matter if your project has shattered all previous records, if the product you are leading is dominating the market, if your last campaign has brought in more business than all other campaigns combined.
It doesn’t matter if you are a regular employee, a manager, an executive, or the founder.
For as much as you think of yourself as the center of the world, most things will continue without you.
And that’s liberating.
