A thought or two

Although we all have dreams of what we want to become or of what we had hoped to become, most of us take an all-or-nothing approach to it. I know I do. It wasn't until yesterday that I realized it doesn't have to be that way. There is a middle path. We may get paid a little less, we may work a little harder but all-in-all, we'd be a lot happier. I guess what I'm saying is, a lot of us treat our jobs as temporary, a stepping stone of sorts ... only to realize that our dreams may never come true. We then realize that the stepping stone was actually an island ... an island we never managed to get off of.

Needless to say, I got a new job.

As I have always told my sons - work toward doing what makes you happy. The best job in the world is the one you would do for free if they didn't pay you. Maybe not the best pay. Just make sure it's enough.

That's some great advice Lou. I'm still working on it, but getting there slowly.

Thanks 7aki!

Congratulations and I envy you more than you will ever know.

Seriously, I can't take the cut in pay or the loss of benefits.
