A Cure for Post-tenure Blues
I have discovered a cure for post-tenure blues. It’s called “becoming active in service to the profession.” I was moping and moaning until I became an Assistant Editor for a scholarly journal and got into the leadership of a scholarly organization. Now I have new problems to solve and new tasks to complete every week. And it’s work that brings tangible results and immediate, clear rewards. Plus, it makes me feel competent and important.
