What Do I do?

I find this to be one of the most fascinating questions we ever seek to define.

I always like to say, “It depends.  Who is asking?’

The easy answer is I am a consultant.  Is that vague enough?

A lot of the additional response is always framed by the answer to my question, “Who is asking?

I bake.  That is one of the things I do.  Heck, I even made money doing, once upon a time, in a land, far far away.  We call it Kansas.

As a baker, I had to know how to read a recipe.  The recipe provides you the things you need to make something yummy.  Alas, that is but part of what is needed to bake.

Baking is a science and an art.  There is skill involved in creating a work of art from scratch.  This is why I have the utmost respect for those who can do it and make it look so easy.  Although it was amazing, I needed to find a way to make more money, a wee bit easier so that I could take care of the other responsibilities in my life.

I took this skill set of reading the recipe, accurately interpreting it and creating the masterpiece and began applying it to other things in my life so I could finance the rest of my life.  Somehow, slowly I became entrenched in telco, which is where I remain today.

Dang It

So I have been ranting and raving about all kinds of things that have been going through my head, as I attempt to train myself to write a post every day.

Well, one thing that I really haven’t pursued too deeply is my job.  There is a good reason for this.  Sometimes I love it.  Other times I hate it.  The one thing that it has done to me, repeatedly, is divert me from reaching my personal goals.

Thus why I missed posting yesterday.  To be honest, when I got done yesterday.  I was done.  The last thing I ever wanted to do was look at a keyboard, so there was no bloody way  I would be able to post.

I do not see this as a failure, but rather a fence post that it might be a good time to re-adjust my expectations.  Working a bajillion hours on a computer in a day is not necessarily conducive to writing a post on my blog every evening.  So it might be more realistic to adjust my expectations about posting every, single day.
