tell the boy to always practice with his off hand. A good hoops player goes both ways, can shoot/pass/dribble both hands.

Best of luck to you fella!

I'm about ten minutes away from a telephone interview for a new job. Good timing, my team was told last week that one of us would be made redundant before the end of next month...

"stinking Celtics" just about says it all.

They should put their two weeks notice in.

Good for you and best of luck.
Switching jobs to gain quality family time is something you'll never regret.
Can't put a price on that.

That, of course, was a prerequisite to my employment there.


Well, the first day was exactly what I was hoping for and more. They are as close to working for "google" type company that you are going to find in Indiana.

Thanks for all the good vibes and hopefully things continue to head in the right direction. I couldn't be happier and feel very lucky to have been offered this opportunity and I plan on making the best out of it.

Don't worry, I will stay strong. We did recently move into a new house. My wife was ready for a little bigger place and I was ready.for.an upgrade.as.well. Still renting and still don't want the debt. I know its not conventional, but it works for me. With the move and the new job, the preasure is on. I can say the new challenge has reinvigorated me and I pumped for the new beginning.

I can still get you a good deal on that spa, but you may want to hold onto that silver .

Thanks again for all of the positive vibes, it means a lot.

You are making a very positive move. Our time on this earth is really quite short and if you don't enjoy the things that matter instead of chasing the almighty $$$............well, let's just say that I've been working in hospitals for 20 years and seen many who never stopped the endless money grab, then died around 60 years old and never got to enjoy it.

I don't think anyone ever says with their dying breath, " Man, I wish I'd have spent more time at the office".

Well, after this past weekend, sitting at home enjoying a four day break with family and friends, I knew I had made the right decision. I have had an awesome time enjoying my new work schedule and my family has benefited tremendously. I have gone to a Colts game with my son, been to all of his basketball practices and get to go to his first game this Saturday. Right now, I must say, life is good.

On top of all of that, I hit my quota threshold yesterday in day 44. You get 80 days to hit their quota, or you lose your job. I was a little nervous about not making it and this being a disaster of a decision. Fortunately this has gone very well and it is certainly headed in the right direction. In my first two days of the month I am 82% to quota for the month and just killing it. All of the pressure is off and I can now simply go in and relax and do my job.

It just goes to show that sometimes in life you have to take a chance, this one has worked out beautifully. I am very grateful for the support of family and friends and especially my loving wife.

Congrats man. Great story and I'm glad you shared it here... We all have our own decisions and they can be hard... And we can learn from one another... Happy it's working out so well for you. You make a decision for one reason and it can pay off down the road in unexpected manners... Been through some similar points myself and some of them paid off remarkably over a decade later... Enjoy the fam!
