The Road To Mediocrity Is Paved In Gold!

As I get older I begin to realize that the world is not such a place of wonderment and joyful fun like modern society tends to portray all around us every day. To me I can see through the fa├žade that people call modern civilization and see the darkness behind it and it makes me worry about the state of it. And yet people go about their business blissfully unaware of the monster that is waiting to come out from behind the curtain! People are reacting negatively to all of the constant distractions and focus on things that are irrelevant to us. I see the world heading down a very dark road a road that will lead to our demise or better yet that will lead to us to hit the reset button.  Why do I say this because I see it everyday when I help people. And no matter how many times I teach them how to fish they still don’t get it or are lazy to feed themselves and want someone else to do the heavy lifting! So I spend my time solving other people’s issues while my personal life is going on the…

Why Spending Thousands On Certifications in the beginning is a Stupid Idea!

I work in the tech field and believe me when I tell you that there is not a day that goes by that I don’t get some email or a call trying to push their certification programs There are tons of them out there! They sell you on how with their certifications you can make six figures right off the bat! Yeah right! The way they make it seem like is a bit enticing for some one new looking for an edge. To get promoted quicker and get down the path to making money. What they do not tell you is that without actual experience those certifications will not give you the rate of return you were looking for. Why? Its simple! Recruiters still look for hands on experience. Don’t get me wrong having certifications is great but its not guaranteed that you will make a lot of money when you have no experience. Take it from me! I have seen people with all types of certifications get skipped over by another guy because he had more actual work experience than the guy with the certifications. I myself have …

Job? You Mean Just Over Broke!

Job? You Mean Just Over Broke! The alarm clock goes off at 6am and another day of servitude begins. You go to the bathroom half asleep being careful not to step on the cat since she always in the way of your path and into the bathroom you go to start your ritual. You take a cold shower to wake up and energize yourself and after  several minutes of showering you are refreshed and awake. I guess those bloggers were right a cold shower does wake you up you thought to yourself. Get dressed grab your coffee and begin the battle of getting through morning rush. You get to your cell i mean cubicle turn on your computer put your chain on and begin your 8 hours of dealing with knuckleheads all day. You pray for the hours to go by but the clock just keeps dragging as a minute passes feels like hours! This is the routine many Americans go through everyday not knowing that there is more to life than this! Or they know that there is more out there but are too lazy or too tired to start anything. …

4 In Your Face Reasons Following the Status Quo is Unproductive!

Remember when you were a child how the adults would tell you that the path to success is to “Get an education, Go to College and find a job.” This predetermined path was chosen for you and everyone else to follow a so called “Path To Success” model and if followed the door of opportunity and riches await! This may have been true back in the day but now the rules are changing dynamically whether we want to admit or not.

If you are in the work world I’m sure that you have heard of the term “Working Overtime”. If you haven’t let me tell you what it is! Working Overtime is a termed used when a Corporate cog like myself is asked to work more than his usual 8 hours. In return for working those few hours you will be recompensed in the form of money. Most people including myself would jump for a chance to make extra money and when I was younger I would do a lot of “Working Overtime!”. Yes you can make a lot of money in the process but in the end something will tend to happen when you do too much overtime. Certain things will begin to happen at first it will be small but after a while that little small problem will become bigger very quickly if you are not paying attention. Working overtime is like finding money on the street and you cannot help but to be attracted to its sweet nectar! The chance to make a little extra money can really hook anyone. The temptation is too great! Most people would say working…
