Do you have a dream job in mind that you are fighting toward obtaining? I used to have one. For me, it was being in the military. Mission accomplished. I had the joy of serving my country for over 8 years in the Navy. It wasn’t my 1st option, it was the only one that would accept me without a high school diploma or G.E.D. Nevertheless, I checked off that dream job.
Once I got out of the military I decided to pursue law enforcement. After I left active duty I decided that I wanted pursue a career in the field of corrections. It took me a little under 2 years to decide that this new career wasn’t going to be a winning option for me. I have a habit of checking off my bucket list items as they are accomplished and coming up with a new goal to pursue.
So after I left the corrections field, I decided to join the family business and became a truck driver. This was one of the more enjoyable fields I was blessed in experiencing. Being out on the open roads, eating new and interesting foods all the time, and getting paid to visit all my old military buddies and family members that are stretched all over the country. I found this to be one of the most demanding jobs that I’ve had. I have sleep disorders and physical limitations. The human body doesn’t repair and rejuvenate itself very well if you don’t sleep soundly. So after all the constant harassment from fleet managers complaining about my performance I decided to move along to a new career goal. It was then time to explore how I would perform as a college student.
It turns out I was a pretty good student. I did pretty well without even trying to hard. Went to business school for 2 years and flunked out of two Algebra classes by a total of five grade point between them. Anyone that knows how college works, in order to retake failed classes while on financial aid, you have to pay for the failed classes before you can retake them. So needless to say, I am two classes short of officially being a college graduate. While it sucks, it takes a lot of spare money to repay over $1700.
I feel I have gotten off topic here a little bit, but it is what it is. My brain works via mysterious and often diluted methods quite often. The point is that as soon as you accomplish a goal you should figure our what your next task achieved will be. My current goal is have my love for writing be an educational source for my subscriber’s. It is my hope that you will be able to pick up bits and pieces of material here and there that will allow you to further yourself in your quest for obtaining your personal and professional goals.
As always, thank you for donating a few moments out of your day to read my seemingly never-ending rambles. If you read something that grabs your attention and helps you along your path let me know about it so we can have a digital handshake.
Catch up with you guys and gals later, just had another article request come into the inbox that I can’t say no to. Toodles for now.
