"You gotta do what’s important"
My motorcycle sits in the garage, awaiting a new stator. It’s been there for several months. Every time I walk in I swear it glares at me. There’s this guy I know (not because I want to), who quits jobs on a regular basis. Yesterday, he came by the house and we had a conversation out by the garage:
Him: When you gonna get the scooter running?
Me: I don’t really know. It’s not a priority, right now.
Him: Yeah, it is, man. Summer’s comin’! It’s ridin’ season!
Me: I know. Right now I’m focused on the business I started about a year ago. That’s where my time and energy are going these days. Once it’s solid I’ll have time to ride a lot.
Him: *shaking his head* You gotta do what’s important.
Me: I am
Him: *walks off, laughing and still shaking his head*
So, why is it that so many people:
Say they are unhappy in their jobs
Say they would like to own their own business, and
Treat you like you’re stupid when you do what owning a business requires?
