Your Lot in Life...

I'll be taking a brief hiatus over the course of the next couple days. I plan to finish up a very short book, focus on my martial arts training and complete some tutorials I'm working on.

I just wanted to engage my readers in conversation during my absence. And so, I will ask a couple questions and hope that you will share:

Question 1: Are you happy with your job?
Question 2: Are you happy with where you're at in your life?
Question 3: What is the best thing you've ever done for yourself?
Question 4: What would you recommend someone who is unhappy with their life or career do?
Question 5: What are you doing, right now, to continue your education?

Why am I asking these questions? I don't know. I feel compelled, sometimes, to probe the minds of others. I keep hoping, I suppose, that they have some magic spell or some tip or trick that I might try that will give me an edge in some unforeseen situation or that will help me find the niche into which I belong.

Do you have questions for me that I might answer upon my return?

1. yes
2. no
3. went to college
4. start changing things, decide what you want to do and go for it!
5. nothing, other than reading everything I can get my hands on.
Let's see...

1. Depends on which day you ask me.
2. Yes I am.
3. Hate to say it, but divorced by ex-wife.
4. Sit down, think about what you'd like to do. Pray about it.
5. Reading. Does watching TV count?
I suppose if you are watching the history channel... Or the science channel or the learning channel or national geographics...
1. Yes
2. Happier than I used to be
3. I'm going back to college
4. Take a look at where you are and where you want to be - what do you have to do to get there?
5. Going back to college and reading everything I can - also taking continuing educatin classes
1. Yes, surprisingly.
2. Very much so
3. Learned to have faith in the universe and realized that I have no control over it.
4. Figure out who you are and screw what everybody else thinks for awhile. After you know what makes you happy, it's a lot easier to make it happen.
5. Life is an education. I'm just keeping my eyes and ears open.
1. VERY happy.
2. Absolutely.
3. Took another job and a $15,000 pay cut to get away from a :::nightmare::: boss, after almost 15 years with the same company. (It was scary but worth it.)
4. Do NOT settle for anything. Take a chance. You only get one chance at life, so don't waste it doing something you don't want to do.
5. I am enrolled in a monthly class called "Ninja" that teaches agents how to be the master of their career rather than the career being their master. It's awesome.
You guys are all beautiful. I (watering eyes and shaky voice inserted here) you!
I think that Ninja class sounds WAY COOL! There are not enough learning opportunities.
