I am on vacation for the next week. My wife has flown to California for a couple of days to see her sister, so its me and the three kids (ages 6,3, and 2). As they play in the next room, it hits me that the best thing about my current job is not being there. The impact of that thought is now rippling through me. What a thought. Most of my time awake is time spent contained in a corporate cube. Certainly the job is serving the purpose of a salary and benefits, but with what goal in mind? When I look honestly at my current situation and position, it is truly the dumping ground for the directionless. Without a direction to move in, it is just quiet desperation. What a weak and pathetic existence. So the question arises, will I commit to a direction/goal to extricate myself from the current situation, or will I just lay down?
