Just chugging along. No, not like in my early 20’s with that huge mug in my hand. Not that kind of chugging. Just chugging the work week and thousand and one task. But I’m glad I took a few minutes on Monday to help a friend who is thinking about making a career change. Strange advice for me to be giving given I’ve spent most of my career at just 2 places.

One for 21 years and one for 20 years. Well I’m about 3 days short of that 20 year anniversary on the second of to be totally accurate.

To the starting gate.

I’ve been blessed with some good advice myself and its good to find someone you trust or a good manager to help you weigh out those tough calls. Changing careers, roles, positions or companies is one of the most stressful things. It affects the quality of your life greatly. They are decisions not to be made lightly.

In retrospect I probably could have been earning more if I had moved around a bit more. But that wasn’t the primary mission all the time. I want to work where I’m valued and the job works for me. That means different things for different people but its something that always isn’t given the right weight.

What good is money, when you don’t have time to spend it or the quality of your overall life sucks.

Random Thoughts of the Day

I miss seeing my better half since they modified my work schedule. That sucks and I’m about to change it.

All I know is dwarfed in comparison to what I don’t know, but I make do and try to learn.

There are few things like getting on the elevator to go to the garage on your last work day of the week. Besides the burnout out of the garage.

With a lifetime and a half in the Newspaper industry I'm preparing for my retirement career as an Artist, Writer, Photographer and Video content provider. I'm a proud father of two wonderful children and I'm still married to the first girl I fell in love with and probably only one that would have me.
