Michael's right: it could be your environment that is becoming stale. I spent a month last winter, thinking, as I walked past subway stop after subway stop, what I could do because I didn't want to be a TW anymore. It wasn't the career I didn't like, it was the job! Happy now.....

If you have military TW experience, think twice. This is a great
time to hook up with a defense project. Defense spending is
headed up and there are lots of new projects on the horizon.
Lockheed Martin and their subcontractors are already hiring TWs
like crazy (well, at least they're posting ads). You might even
find a subcontractor with a nice small-company environment.
