What? No! The next phase of my career is retiring. I’ve intentionally gone BACK DOWN the career ladder because I don’t need that stress. Being “just a developer” is my happy place and it pays “enough”.
> is it inspiring enough? Is it going to get you out of bed every day and be excited?
There is no scenario in which an OKR is going to have that effect on me. They (and other co’s) are incredibly unlikely to be willing to pay me for anything I consider “exciting” or that “gets my juices flowing”
My job’s interesting, but let’s be honest about things. This is just a job. I exchange my time for their money. Hopefully they get sufficient value out of the deal to continue the arrangement.
