(via Secret Sauce: A Chief Operating Officer Didn’t Get Promoted)

I thought I was in line to be the CEO.

I didn’t get the promotion.

I tried to convince myself that it didn’t’ matter that much. Turns out I was lying to myself (and everyone who asked).  It was an awkward, embarrassing and painful time.

During that period, I stumbled upon a quote by Mizuta Masahilde,

“Since my house burned down I now have a better view of the rising moon.”
