Pete Yorn and a quote
Just got the free monthly CD for working at Sony Online. This month I chose Pete Yorn. Nice choice. Not sure I'd ever heard any of the songs before but I really liked it. Sometimes the free CD goes onto the shelf and never back into the player. He he... it has a couple of extra tracks on the end. Good thing I was too busy typing to hit eject.
Barbara Walter once sent me a photocopy that had the "10 commandments for work" on it. The number one item said something like "be willing to lose your job everyday." For sometime now, I have been afraid of losing my job. Perhaps it has been since the layoffs in Platform. Perhaps longer. I'm tired. I'm bored. I keep waiting for the perfect opportunity to ask for change. There won't be the perfect chance. I haven't been ready to lose my job, my little office with a couch and a window over the parking lot, the comfort of people you know and already trust your instincts, and lots more. However, I'm ready to accept that first commandment. I am ready to lose everything. I'm ready to go home and have to find another team another challenge. I'm ready. I don't think it will come to that. But I am ready.
