Or rock on….or something like that.
Oh no, that dreaded p word…potential.
Some people might think I have not lived up to my potential, but I can assure you, I know me better than anyone and can testify I have far exceeded it. So take that you haters…
Now that the line has been established
You could probably tell early on this wasn’t the One, but before I wrote ‘oh’ it did have the potential, right?
Some might argue my title was only catchy link bait to get you to stop by on the outside chance I really did have a worthwhile post; but I’m guessing most of you would have stopped by anyway. ‘Cause you guys are cool like that…
Do you ever feel like that when you wake up in the morning; this has the potential to be my best day ever? Ferris Bueller’s Day Off, anyone?
You can always do better
Certainly, but how much is enough; if you are always hard charging, when do you stop and smell the roses? Or at least drink some wine. Isn’t there some merit enjoying the journey along the way.
Isn’t there a market for a slacker blog?
What if you pull a rabbit out of the hat?
I’m paid on straight commission monthly; the only guarantee I have is my $500 monthly car allowance. Therefore, I have never, and I mean never had two identical pay checks. That’s approximately 290 paychecks since I have been on straight commission; all different.
We have enough internal checks and balances that my pay should be accurate each and every month. Every once in awhile I need to sift through the transactions to verify the accuracy when it seems to be something different than I thought it would be, but that’s a pain in the butt. Too much detail; I’m the sales guy, remember?
There were a couple of events coming up I wanted to attend and my
wife CFO said, ‘if you can find some more money, then you can go.’ Well, guess what? I found my paycheck was short this month, and then I found one million dollars……….ok, maybe not that much, but a step up better than finding a $20 in your coat pocket. A good find indeed…
How’s that for potential?
Who’s your daddy?
Guess who will have to check his paycheck every month now? Lovely…
Ok, the jig is up
This could actually be in the running for my weakest post ever but I will do you a favor by keeping it short and sweet. That’s worth at least one or two points, right?
Just make sure you come back next week; I’m sure it’s going to get really good around here then. Just wait and see…
