i'm gonna be in town 18th thru 20th (thu-sat). can you meet me friday at 2p? i wanna go over that list of candidates you sent me last week and schedule follow ups with our top three on saturday.
you think this is the right thing to do too, right? i have a feeling everybody does. telling them i'm stepping down is gonna be fucking hard, but it's not fair to do a slow fade on something like this. y'all haven't been getting enough of me for two years, it's not gonna get any better.
trying to think of how to say i'm sorry without it sounding like bullshit. i am sorry. i feel guilty about this. but new york is where i gotta be right now, and this is what i gotta do right now, and i don't want to limp this along when what it fucking needs is a giant's strides.
are you sure you don't want it? think about it some more, please. you been with me since the beginning bro, i know you'd do everybody right, you're so talented it's stupid and you got a big, big... heart (🤓). no but, you're the only person i'd feel 100% leaving the crew with. it'll always sting, right, like, this isn't exactly what i wanna do, but at least if you're the guy i know it'll keep evolving, keep growing whether that's on the path we set together or a new one you make yourself.
i trust you, i love you, i'll see you.
