On a different note, being out of development means being out of my comfort zone. I‘m not a project manager, far from it. In an email the other day my task was described as „caretaker“. I might be ok with that. I don‘t manage. I don‘t want to manage. I might be able to organize a couple of things, but what actually needs to be done is to enable the developers in my project team. I need to figure lots of things out, not only for my team, but also for me personally. Again, it‘s a chance to grow for me, and this time this thing will not just go away. There‘s money and pressure behind it, and I‘ll better make sure this thing is done in time.

Sometimes a little pressure might turn out to be helpful. We‘ll see how this went in three months.
