Don't ever roll your eyes when someone tells you, 'Timing is everything' because it really is.
However, that wasn't the only factor helping me on my road to success---I work my fucking ass off.
So, now that I've reached a point in my career where I'm getting recognized and rewarded, I must also have to wear the big, ugly hat of managing people.
In case you're new here, my favourite saying is; I hate people. Can you see my problem? I much prefer firing people than hiring them.
However, I think my main problem is, I don't know how to convince my boss that it would be easier to clone me than to find good help nowadays.
The young people of today (you know who you are!) are good at two things:
- Asking for a salary that does not match their experience just because some over-priced University gave them a piece of paper that says they did stuff for four years
- Waiting to be lead rather than taking the lead
Scary, isn't it?
Well, get used to it because this is the future.
