“Now, I’m beginning what I could have started 10 years ago. But I’m happy at least that I didn’t wait 20 years.”
It’s the adage: “the best time to plant a tree was 20 years ago. The second best time is now.”
This is very fitting in my life. I seem to have a 3-8 year itch regarding my profession.
It’s hard to believe that after 38+ years, the longest job I held was Sam’s Club 8298. That job was perfect for me. I get bored relatively quickly and try to do more or challenge myself in a different fashion. I could bounce from one section to another without ever having to quit.
In the PT world, it rarely works that way. I may be able to switch locations, but it’s essentially the same job. There’s rarely additional challenge.
I can honestly say that every job, but one, which is a different story for a different day, I left to do better, be better or work harder.
If there is a dream that you have and the opportunity presents itself, what’s stopping you?!
Don’t regret the decision you didn’t make!
Always think of the worst case scenario. How would that worst case scenario affect you and your family?
If it’s not a death blow, why not make the jump? Sink or swim, but do your due diligence before making the jump.
Research what you have to do to be successful. Spend some time that you would’ve slept to figure out how to stick the landing on the jump and not fall flat on your face.
I landed flat on my face and you know what?…
It wasn’t a death blow. We lived to fight again.
