I often get caught in a rut and just end up doing the same old stuff day in and day out, and I think it’s starting to wear on me a bit, for example, I get up, I take my son to school, I go to work, I come home, I eat, I try to speak to my spouse in between boys screaming, getting into stuff and then I sleep. Lather Rinse Repeat.. I need for someone to move my cheese, mix it up a bit, who’s gonna do that for me, You?, how bout you?,, hmm nope not gonna happen, the only person to make things different is me. I started doing things a bit different this week, I mean I still do all of the above, but I’ve been trying to figure out new ways to enhance my monetary gains, either using my talents in the production studio, or making new connections and networking with movers shakers, people who, you know actually make a lot of money, although I’m not quite sure how.. but I’m willing to learn.
Last year, I thought maybe I would get out of Radio and try something outside my comfort zone, so I studied, took and passed (the 2nd time around) the Life/Health Insurance exams. Wanted to work for NYLife, yeah, didn’t happen, got avoided by nearly everyone I came in contact with,, so I went back to doing what I do best in my little radio world, an opportunity came along (actually I think it was God giving me a little nudge, but I can’t really prove it, I have faith that He did though) and I struck up a conversation with a client who designs benefits for clients in the Health Insurance arena, he does a syndicated radio program nationwide and I just flat asked him if he thought he could use someone with my skill sets who also had been licensed. I thought he was going to come out of his shoes, he was excited, I was excited, so…. beginning in April I’ll work for him, producing his radio program, and helping folks with the problems they are going to face with developing a plan for their healthcare insurance needs. Let’s face it, we’re all going to need it, we’re all going to use it, and we’re all going to need a way to provide it for ourselves that’s cost effective.
My point in the blog post is this, if you feel that you’re in rut, for cryin out loud get up and move the cheese, do something different, learn a new language, invent something,, oh wait… SQUIRREL.. , cool site http://www.quirky.com ,, check it out for cool new inventions if you’re in to that,, learn to cook, get out of the rut, move the cheese..if you’re working at a dead end job, find a new one, if you have something that you do, that you would do for free just because you love to do it,, that’s your passion and that’s what you turn into something great.
Move the cheese
