Creating (or escaping) A Sick System

This is a blog post from http://issendai.livejournal.com that I found some years ago, it fit to a “T” the workplace I was in at the time, a sick system, bordering on a Dark Triad, that I left after 19 years. It was painful for awhile, but one of the best moves of my life. I go […]

Does Quality Work Mean Anything Anymore?

Decades ago, I suppose I was a pre-teen because I remember listening to my Dad and not rolling my eyes, my Dad was talking to me about work ethic. I remember him telling me, “Whatever kind of work you do in life, do a good job. It doesn’t matter if your are a plane pilot […]

Seven Months?!?

Has it been seven months since I posted something? Yes, I guess it has. Wow, time has flown. Back in December of 2012 I posted I’m Not Dead, Yet. I had taken a second job trying to make ends meet, a year later I quit that job; the burn-out was phenomenal. About the same time […]

Are You Ready For The Second Super Bowl Of 2013?

Not quite two months ago Super Bowl XLVII  was played in New Orleans, Louisiana.  I don’t understand why they insist on using Roman numerals, the Roman Empire fell in 476 AD, but there it is. On the field were the Baltimore Ravens and the San Francisco 49′ers, the game resulted in a win for the […]
