California, Portland, Seattle, Palm Bay FL, Virginia, India, Pakistan, Houston TX, Sydney Australia. Denver. San Antonio TX. Arkansas. The UK. Ohio.
These are all locations that I talked to people from today – either IM, Email, phone, or through my blog. 6 of them were by phone. Most of the rest were by IM. I live by Windows Live Messenger – as I have for years. I have 587 contacts in my WLM.
I like my life. It isn’t boring. Work isn’t a J.O.B. when you get to talk to so many interesting people from so many interesting places. Work becomes a game when it is fun. All these people make it fun. From a CEO or two, to a good friend I hadn’t talked to in 15years, a new friend who wanted to know what “equity in lieu of salary” was all about, to someone that needs to convince themselves that it is time for a job change. The young programmer’s, who keep amazing me, and the new and old business associates.
Find what you love to do, then find a way to make money doing it. You’ll find you fall asleep smiling, and wake up with the same expression.
