I started working full time for the company I currently work for. I had Interned the year before that but full time started today. This is really only the second job I have ever had, well if you don’t count raising my youngest son on my own and helping my wife Deb with her children and all the associated madness that comes with all of this as not a job I can say second Full time job how about that. This is more of a adventure than a job and I also don’t think of what I do now a job but a adventure as everyday is something different and something new to learn and do either at work or home who knows what lurks around the next corner.
I got a email from my boss Arlin this morning ( you know the one that enjoys putting me into those positions that Introverts do not like to be in, in front of people talking or something like that) that it had been another year. Well it was actually 10 years ( not that I am counting) today that I have been getting these emails every year at this time and you know they make me smile every time I get one because it makes me think back to what I went through to get to this position and all the hard work to get here.I just didn’t show up and do my 8 hours I took it upon myself to go those extra steps when at home setting up a test network and learning all I could learn when not working so I could get better.
I worked 22 years for my parents company well actually it was more before this but that don’t count guess I had to pay my way at home also but then 2 years of school and now 10 years of this. WOW you add that all up and my how time has flown by when your having fun. That is the main thing now days have fun enjoy what you do and help the people you are supporting and make a maybe not so good day for them be better from what you do for them. When you do all of that sometimes they even bring food for you. Double Bonus Points…..
Til later just Roger
