I love my work (flying jets). It helps that I work with some great people who are truly incredible and we are all passionate about what we do.

That being said, it's still a job similar to many others I've had. Weird, right? I think it feels like a job because my family is my #1 priority, not my work. So anytime at work is time away from them.

John Holmes would be a good career:geek: and not for the ”Small Minded” ones that is.

I’m in, I am trying to help the USA and passionate about doing it. So are all the people who work around me. Enjoy traveling and working with others. This virtual stuff has me and lots of people going nuts. Finally this week, I saw a couple of my partners who work for engineers, developers, and consultants I have only seen on TV for eight damn months now! We even have a gentlemen from Europe who made the trip!! That was slick, huh? Wow, this is much better! Keep that hiding out crap and living in fear to others. We still had ten in a meeting room here for the last two days and 12 others in a virtual meeting from around the world. It felt good being one of them “in the room”. Yes we did wear our masks, it was okay.

I’ve always been envious of those who love what they do for a living. Good for them. Throughout my educational years I never really had any direction so I do whatever I have to do to provide for myself and my wife. I’ve spent the last 30 years managing organized labor in several transportation based industries which has fortunately provided us a good living. Love what I do, no, but it pays the bills. Perhaps when I retire I’ll be able to make a few dollars doing what I love, relating to either cars or firearms. Looking to relocate out of NY if anyone is looking for help in any of the fields above...

I love my work...

I don't always love the situation...

I have a no compromise mentality, but $$$$ ALWAYS gets in the way... I'm always wondering how much more I could have delivered to a customer if they had been willing to pay for it.

There's never enough time (or money) to do it right the first time, but we sure as hell can do it a second time when the first time doesn't work right.

:(

BTW, give me McMaster, Misumi, a robot or two, a welder and a decent machine shop and I can build anything...


(Ok, almost anything, I do need a good software guy and a good controls guy)

I enjoy parts of my work. Some parts just suck though. Being a leader comes with good and bad. The good can be rewarding and the bad can make you want to pull your hair out.

In my senior year in high school I sat down with a counselor to try to figure out what to go into in college. He said, “No matter what you do, it becomes work. That’s why they have to pay people to do it.” While that might not be 100% true, there’s definitely some truth in it. There are parts of every job that are drudgery. Except for Johnny Wad’s, maybe. ;)
