I was in the middle of a major project when I got a call from my orthopedic doctor. The doctor was concerned that I was going to have to undergo surgery. He said that surgery is extremely expensive, and it was going to be a long, painful process. He said that if I didn’t start thinking about not driving and not driving as soon as possible, I would be on my own.
I got the news a little late in the game, but I had to be out of work for a couple of weeks. I decided to take the time to go back to school and get my degree. Once I finished my degree, I could finally focus on driving again. I felt so bad I had to ask my doctor about it. He said that, in general, you should not take any job that offers a long commute as a requirement for employment.
But I also didn’t realize how much I was going to miss driving until he said that, in general, you should never feel more than one foot out of the car. That one foot is the one that always gets you in trouble.
I have no doubt that it can be a lot easier (and quicker) to just find a job that doesn’t require a long commute, but I would be lying if I said I didn’t know I would feel more than one foot out of the car. Because I used to work for my dad’s department store chain. That’s right, my dad is the president of a subsidiary that sells a lot of shoes.
The point of this entry is that I know this is a really bad idea to think about. But for me, it was still a good idea to tell people not to drink too much. Maybe I should have said to always have a plan for when something happens. Because the plan was always to find a place to crash.
Yeah, this is a bad idea. But because of this, I can’t tell you how many times I’ve been completely surprised by an unexpected event and then felt like I had a plan to deal with it. Maybe the worst thing about this is that it forces you to consider how you react and react to unexpected things.
I’ve been around a lot of drunk people. And no shit, I’ve been around a lot of drunk people who think they have a plan. I’ve been around a lot of people who want to be “the best”. And its a damn good start that you can actually feel like you have a plan. But I’d still say that the best way to react to unexpected stuff is to be the best you can be.
I know everyone thinks I am a douche, but I’ve been around a lot of douchebags who think they have a plan to deal with everything. Ive been around a lot of douche bags who think they have a plan.
If you want to be the best you can be the best you can be, you have to be willing to fail at things. And one of my favorite ways to fail is to make a plan that you will never follow. Thats why I put braces on my chest.
When you’re on a business trip, or a vacation, you don’t always have the luxury of spending hours at a time getting dressed and choosing how to present yourself. So, when you step out, you have to pick a place to meet people, a place to take care of your business (if it’s still business), and a place to go home to. The first two have to be different locations, and the last two have to be different places.
