Every job I’ve ever had, when I left, I was replaced by at two or three people. I have always enjoyed working and discovering new skills.
I was also very fortunate that there were only two times that I ever ended up a boss that was hard to get along. It might have been because of my enthusiastic attitude or maybe I just had better than average luck. Almost everyone I worked for treated me with respect and encouraged me to develop new skills, even when they knew I would eventually move on because of it.
I was one of the fortunate ones. While growing up I witnessed my father, a surgery nurse, struggle while trying to make ends meet.
You might challenge why that makes me fortunate, but if you think about it. I was exposed to a dying era where the man of the house was required to be a “Mr. Fix-it”.
When a washing machine broke, daddy took it apart and replaced bushings, wiring or tinkered with the motor until it would work for a few more months. When the car needed a tune-up, he was the one who put in the new spark plugs, rotor and set the timing.
