You know, there are jobs out there. Lots of them.
The hard part is finding something you want to do. I think I need something new. I just don’t know what yet.
I was thinking about sales today. You know, it takes someone special to do it, because you never really accomplish anything. Even when you reach the number for the quarter or whatever, it’s irrelevant – as soon as the quarter ends it’s back to square one, zero in the bank and who gives a shit if you made it last quarter, because last quarter doesn’t matter.
It’s financially rewarding, but not mentally or emotionally rewarding for me. I suppose that’s why a lot of the guys who are in sales are big, big sports fans and former athletes – it’s the same mentality you need to go out and win the big game, knowing that next week it’s the same dilemma, and your performance this week only matters if you perform next week.
I don’t know if I’m the kind of person who can go out and win the big game since every game is the big game and winning this one doesn’t mean shit once it’s over. ‘Cause, you know, it’s just a game.
But it’s not.
