Rob, you really haven't told us how you are feeling lately.... The start of your quit was not so pleasant....I do hope you are riding the wave and feeling good.

I actually feel real good other than some headaches which at the moment I'm attributing to caffeine withdrawal.  Been doing school work now, which is exciting after being out for so long in the workforce and then KNOWING what you want to do, after having no idea when you were 18 - 22 years old.  I'm older now, almost 34 and I'm happy with the direction my life is going in, which hasn't always been the case in my life.  It's a long story.  But anyway, things are going good.

Just another thought. I remember reading a book by Gail Sheehy, a sociologist, over 30 years ago, called Passages. In it she asserted, that 10% of the working population would rather be at work, working in their chosen profession, than doing anything else. The other 90% of the population, enjoyed working in greater population percentages, the "less" they enjoyed their work. Her message was for each of us to try to get as close to the 10%, as one can.

 

I think the path you are on, has the potential, to propel you to that goal.

 

Mike

I've re-read this sentence 5 times and I still feel like I missed something, maybe my brains just on overload now and I should go to sleep. :P

Ya, I didn't like it when I wrote it, and tried to clean it up a bit, but it still sucks. I was trying to be succinct and make it short, but alas, it doesn't seem I can.

 

So,

 

She likened the working population as being in a pyramid, with the top 10% being the ones that would rather be at work, than anywhere else. Then in progressively greater percentages of the population, levels below levels, (within the analogy of the pyramid), people enjoyed their jobs/professions less and less. To the point that the highest % of the population, were the people at the bottom of the pyramid, who enjoyed their work the least.

 

Our responsibility, is to try to raise ourselves as high in the pyramid as we can, even up to the "lucky", 10% .

 

And another point, that other's have made that goes along with this, is that the more someone enjoys what they are doing, the more successful they usually become, in their work and in life.

 

I'll stop there; Before, I totally entangle myself in a web, I cannot untangle.
