Work-life balance. “Myth. No work worth doing balances out your life. No relationship worth having balances out your life.” – A CEO via Facebook
Interestingly, this balance issue never became one until I found myself in a cubicle in exchange for stability, excellent health care coverage, and promising upward mobility.
“You’re going to be bored out of your mind, Derek.” These were the parting words from a prior employer. I knew he was right then, and on occasion it’s true now.
I don’t have it so bad. My supervisor also leaves me alone. I work on dynamic projects that are mildly stimulating, and resolve issues that are relatively rewarding – in a justice sort of sense. At least I like to tell myself that.
The good news: I’m not stressed. 2012 was kind to me. Job opened up a lot of new opportunities, I bought ammunition and gun accessories before panic-geddon, and I learned a lot. I just didn’t write about it. I miss sharing… in a narcissistic way.
Not too long ago, I settled to find a career simulating enough, but not too time consuming so I can casually enjoy the fun things that I really like doing. I have that opportunity: I just didn’t take advantage of it. Perhaps it’s about time I start taking the time to do the things I know I like doing, as opposed to volunteering for things I think I should like doing.
Life is all about decisions, making each worthwhile. I stepped away from this blog for way too long. I’ll see ya’ll at SHOT Show 2013. Where are all the parties at?
