Most of my life I’ve done exactly what was expected of me. I was gifted with the ability to retain information and make logical decisions, so I always did well in school. I had good grades in grade school and all through high school. I went to college and didn’t have as much fun as I wanted in 4 years, so I stayed and got my Masters Degree. I landed that big job with a monster corporation that everyone wants and moved to sunny SoCal. My parents couldn’t have been prouder. I am the oldest son and the first in my family to go to college. Last week I quit that job.
I haven’t been this happy since I got married. There’s already a significant change in my attitude and I haven’t even finished my final two weeks yet. I was just a number on a P&L Statement. For seven years I worked somewhere that will forget my name by the end of the 1st quarter.
I’ve learned an invaluable lesson these past few years. You can’t fake it. If you aren’t happy with what you’re doing everyday, it will bleed into your personal life. If I didn’t take a risk now, then I probably never would have. Being happy is more valuable to me than a paycheck and a false sense of security.
There are a lot of things I’m looking forward to accomplishing next year. One of those things is helping all of you reach your goals. Let me know how I can help. What are you looking forward to this year?
