Pressure

Here is the deal. This economy is in the friggin potty! I am in sales and people are just not buying. It is really that simple. My posts might become a little sporatic until I can get myself to work twice as hard in the same amount of time. Sounds easy I suppose. No rest for the weary as they say. I have heard the expression to work smarter not harder. Well, the time has come to work smarter and harder and longer. FILO! If you are not familier with that expression it means, First In Last Out. I have already told wifey to start eating some dinners without me, which sucks. I hate when I have to miss those prescious moments with the family. When you are in the second worst recession ever you have to seperate yourself in work ethic and hopefully production. And let's just say my production is abysmal. I am still a ' new guy '. Yet, that sure does not mean that my job is safe. Everytime I read the news or even read the blogs people are getting their paychecks cut, or losing their jobs. It is at the point where now instead of knowing someone who knows someone who lost their job people are now one level out. Everyone knows someone who lost a job or at least had their pay cut. Let's hope that this is getting turned around, people have to be able to buy and sell, and for that people need to be able to get money. On the flip side of this is the fact that if you do have money get out there and buy buy buy. Cars and houses are cheaper than ever before and stocks are easy to gobble up, if you have the money. Get busy!

I'm also in sales and it's disturbing. You're right, it's no longer "once removed", it's hitting home for a lot of people.

the only thing I would disagree with is your comment alluding to being thanful that you have a job. In reality, good people always have options.
