And I don’t even get to smoke on the job?
Dear Blog Guy,
Sometimes I have second thoughts about my career. How can I tell if I’m spending my life doing what’s right for me?
Well, Hard Worker, these are very personal choices, but I have one rule of thumb I apply. Look around your work station. If you see a large tub of gunpowder and tools for pounding and tamping, you may have made a bad career choice at some point. I hope this helps.
