The Ball’s Hardly Dropped on This New Year And It’s Already Gotten Me Apprehensive

Eradicating Rational Thoughts By Attempting To Predict Future Events

The apprehension in 2015 started when he was let go.

This meant for me and those who worked with me, a lot of our duties were moved to a centralized support group in another state on the east coast.

He asked me a simple, and yet very telling question, “Paul, where are some areas that you can add value?”

Evidently not.

Their words, not mine.

Cue the exit music, and crank up the apprehension of potentially having to find a new JOB.

Again cue the music and let the apprehension flow. Everybody that does this day in, day out knows this business we’re in is a slow grinding marathon, not a hundred-yard dash to success.

And yet, I’m actually sitting here doing just that.

And yet again, I’m wondering what new JOB I will need to find.

I am.

Perhaps I should just let my dear wife slap some sense into me?

She’s gotten pretty good at that lately.
