Michael, at Captain Obvious, asks:
"If you were writing your life story, is there anything you wish you could change?"
This question is usually answered with, "Not really, because the choices I've made and the things I've done, have made me who I am today."
As much as I do agree with that answer, there is one thing I may have changed.
As I was growing up, the common thought was to get into a career, establish yourself with a company, invest time in service and reap the rewards of retirement.
We can see today that isn't really the way to go. Statistics show young people entering the workforce today, will work for several companies through out their career.
My sister is a "job hopper". It appears she has the ability to "fall into" great jobs. Looking at her resume, she is all over the board with different type jobs and different experiences. The next one being better than the last.
In reality, this tells me it isn't about luck or falling into opportunities. It's more about going around with a basket gathering a little here and there from each job making yourself more marketable.
I, on the other hand, have stayed at one job doing pretty much the same thing for over 22 years. Although I gain new knowledge as the position keeps up with technology, I haven't expanded in my experiences. My job, like everyone else, is on shaky ground. I have concerns if I need to find a new one, that my longevity in one field no longer represents loyalty and dependability. More so, a deficit, a lack of different experiences.
So Michael, I would change my though of staying with one company, one job.
Wait, there is one more thing I would change.
That would be the time, with the same sister, I was at the Peach Pit in Romeo doing shots of Chambord. I took the dare by the bartender and did a sultry bar top dance from one end of the bar to the other. Then made my sister join me for the next song.
