PBS hosts “Road Trip Nation” that is about 2 guys and a gal traveling the US coast to coast. It’s about finding out who you are and what you want to do with your life. We didn’t have anything like this when I was a young lad. I was told that it didn’t matter if you “liked” your job. You just needed to show up every day and always be on time. I worked at a job for eight hours or more a day six days a week and hated every minute of it. It’s difficult to explain how physically sick I would be each and every day.
It makes me happy to see that today there is a lot more awareness about finding your niche in life. I enjoyed Welding but I hated what I was welding. Production jobs, welding the same pieces every day would make the minutes seem like hours. I couldn’t wait to get out of work and go home to my family and a beer. Before I knew it the alarm clock was ringing and started the whole routine all over again.
