What will you miss if you move on? What can you still do to feel good about your efforts?
Never forget to notice the people you work with. I've been lucky over the years to work with some really amazing people. Some I put into a world class "movers and shakers" category, some I learned so much from that I regard them as personal heroes. Others who, everything they worked on seemed to be done with a level of professionalism, inspired me to be more like them myself.
Unix administration work can feel thankless. So can network administration. So can technical support. I've said this before, but sometimes you get noticed the least when everything is running smoothly. Don't forget that this may be true of your coworkers as well as it is for you. Cut them some slack.
