Sometimes, success isn’t enough. Is this all there is, you wonder? You want more. And at the same time, you tell yourself that you have done well; that you shouldn’t complain. But you know that you deserve better. So, you spend weeks thinking about it, weighing one argument against another. Then, with a strange mixture of high hopes and a heavy heart, you make a fresh start in a surprising, new direction.
