So, this week’s question:
If you had to choose a new career for yourself, what would you choose?
Good question! To be honest, I haven’t given it a lot of thought. Never have. Not even when I should have.
I don’t think I’m alone there, either. I think the majority of people just found themselves doing whatever they could find after they finished college, or high school, based on whatever skills they were able to pick up along the way, and that defined the rest of their career. In my case, I learned how to program computers in college, and save for a couple of years in blue-collar work, that’s what I’ve done.
Now that I’m retired, of course, I can think of a thousand different things I would like to have done. It’s kind of like argument you had years ago that comes to mind in the middle of the night, where you suddenly think of some witty riposte that would have rendered the person with whom you were arguing speechless. In other words, it’s entertaining, but it’s a little late to do anything about it. In the words of the wise man, hindsight is 20/20.
