It’s been a month since the last blog post and with good cause, as life decided to shift gears with the forward momentum of engine failure. Luckily, I have pushed my own car before.
Due to the famous entropy based method known as ‘re-org’, I have been given the new opportunity of re-evaluating future options. In other words, as I walk down the street with a cardboard box in my hands, I’m hoping to take this chance to improve. Improve myself, my skill set and try to find a better position (Note: This double entendre has been brought to you by chess).
To give it some depth, it was fourteen years of service and I admit, that I had originally planned around the idea of retiring there. So, ouch. However, as someone who has played games on a competitive level, bad blows and ‘BM’ happens. You clear your mind and look forward for the next challenge. It is funny though, one doesn’t normally question the wisdom of the kings until you realize, “Hey, wait a second. This decision is negatively impacting me. You’re pulling a ‘SURPRISE MUTHERFUCKER”?? Oh SON OF A…”
Now just to be honest, a thousand jokes and barbs did pass through my mind and I pondered about what jokes I would write about in self centered retort; its quite true that comedy comes from tragedy. However, I think I’ll save those for another time.
As for TED Talks, there is something about them that I should point out.
I love dessert at the end of a nice meal. A cheesecake, a creme brulee, or even a ice cream run to Dairy Queen. However, it is something that stands out as unique to the rest of the meal. It’s a treat.
The Ted Talks aren’t the main course to a person’s day. They are a dessert.
An eight and a half hour job, on the other hand, is a meal that is missing something that the Ted Talks do provide in sustenance. Now this is just an opinion and like all opinions, it is subject to change in the future but I admit I had a hard time wanting to watch a TT when there’s so many other things to be done. (I like to keep myself busy)
So let’s start with a feel good.
No comments this time, no attempt to be witty or to play armchair critic and no need to delve into research. It certainly stands well on its own.
Now that’s something we all want.
Looking for work and share,
