Sorry everyone. I couldn't post for the past couple of days. I had been really busy and I didn't want to post without having the time to read and comment and all your posts also ;-)
I told you guys last week that I quit. This week I got a new job. Well, not entirely new because I'm doing the same thing. Only with a different company and for more money and in a higher end market like I was shooting for. I'm excited!
'So why is this picture of this crazy, penis removing witch here?' you may be asking. Well she used to work at the office I worked at.
I'm not sure if anyone else saw the free Nexus S advertising on the Google homepage yesterday. It was right underneath the search-bar. All there was a line saying 'have the Google experience, Nexus S free today only' or something close to that. Well I clicked it and it linked me to Best Buy, a pretty big electronics retailer here in the states and it did show the cost for the phone at $0 but only for new customers and we established new service a couple of months ago with a 2 year contract so for a moment I thought we were assed out. BUT when the new service was established my wife and I used phones we already had and didn't take any new customer discounts or rebates. So we were able to still use the new customer rebates and get the Nexus S for free yesterday! I checked the Best Buy website today. It is sold out online and the price went back up.
And on a different note...a few years a go I read a book that still resonates with me. I wouldn't really call it a motivational book as I would a how-to book. The title is 'Eat That Frog'. It's a very short read and can actually be summed up in a couple of paragraphs. I believe its a good way to think.
If you had to eat the most horrible looking frog on the planet...what part of the day would you eat it. Morning or night?
If you waited until the night you would dreading it and thinking about it all day not wanting the night to come. Same goes for the afternoon or evening for that matter. But if you ate it first thing in the morning, you can move on with your day and enjoying it for what it is and not having to worry about having to eat any frogs later.
The things I am reluctant to do are my frogs. If I eat them in morning I get them done and out of the way. I won't spend my day thinking and dreading the frog I'll have to eat later.
