go for a walk, leave your phone at home (or at least don't answer calls), enjoy lunch out with your wife (go to some place fancy, like Wendys) ( ), do some chores around the house that you've been putting off. clean your monitors. do something besides sit in your office.

LOL, like you'd think I'd actually sit? I'm working on new certifications that will help my new role, and working on my concrete client making bank as well.

I deleted my original reply, because I'm being more humble.

I've had them for 28 years as a client. They are specifically called out in my new employment contract.

little known fact: it's CVS, and Data is responsible for the 5 foot long receipts when you buy a Snickers bar and a birthday card.

My former employer kept sending me emails at least once a month trying to get me back.

The one was "what position would you like and what can I do to achieve that?"

I didn't think it would be proper to state I would would like to be a pallbearer at his burial so I just replied that I was extremely happy with my new job.

The emails finally stopped when I moved my 401(k) to my new employer

Concrete client is code for "the mafia".

Congrats on moving on and up. When I was in print sales I was always the top dog and in the end always got f*cked. The bosses don't like it when you outsell them. That's why I got out and couldn't be happier. Being your own boss/controlling your own time is the best.

Damn man, sorry to hear they didn't take care of you for the long haul but certainly is trademark of big Corp.

Really nice to know you've got places to go and many available options.
