Why Big titles still give a feeling of emptiness

The reason why sometimes leading a huge Development team gives a feeling of emptiness and I think the same holds true in everybody’s case.

It’s because our creative energies are not utilized. Problem with the whole ladder/scale thingy is –  you are now responsible for ensuring the team is functioning optimally with everyone performing at their best doing what they love while you let your inner desires stagnate and rot. And if deep down, you are somebody else, it’s presumed you can’t scale in your career. It’s one or the other.

That’s where the friction between company needs and personal needs arise.

I think the only solution is to have hobbies or side-projects that harness our creative energies.
