I want to work for a bad company!

Why on earth would anyone want to work at a bad company?

It boils down to education.  Not the kind you pay for, but the one you get on the streeet.  You know, OJT (On the Job Training).  We all get it no matter where we work.  But what about different kinds of companies?

Which one offers the best education?

You know what I mean…the best REAL world education?

It is possible that at a well run, smooth company, you can learn a lot about how things should run.  You get along well with others and generally, the atmosphere is pleasant.  Hopefully, you can experience good, solid management one on one.  When the time to leave arrives, you are usually quite upset.

A poorly managed company is basically the opposite.  Poorly run companies offer poor management, internal political struggles for power, mis-management of funds, harassing phone calls from vendors and creditors, and payroll issues.

So, which is better?  Well, that depends (I used to hate it when business school professors would answer that way!) It could be that what you learn to do well at a good company is not as transferable as what you learn NOT to do at a poorly run company!  The “should do” list is potentially specific to the current company.  However, the “do-not do” list is much easier to carry around from place to place.  The good stuff helps, but the bad stuff sticks in your head!

That is my two-cents


Time off

Well, I had some time off from work this week. But today, for one of the only times I can remember, I got no direct phone call or email. Now, I have told them that it is due to a slight medical thing with my daughter, but it is still weird. They are either respecting me and my time, or…they fired me. Guess I will find out soon enough.  ~John


Today I found out that baby number 4 will be here on or before March 4th.

Do you ever, as a man, look in the mirror and wonder “who put me in charge of these people?”

I know the lord knows what he is doing, but it is intimidating!!!!


Good time to start

Well, the new year seemed like a good time to start. So, this blog will be me. As my sub title lays out, this is about me and my walk with Chirst, my life as a husband of ten years, my life as a father of three and soon to be four and an employee of a company.

Carrie and I were talking this morning, and I think that I will move through Proverbs.  We both have advice that this is a good idea and that sounds like a good place to start.  One of my goals anyway is to have more consistent time in the Word.  Of coiurse it feels that this is a goal every year, but we will see how this goes…

I also think that the word of the year will be contentment…  What does that mean?  I will expand later…
