Today I turn 34. I probably would have taken the day off except I have to be in court tomorrow for a traffic ticket and I’ll be going on vacation in a couple of weeks so I feel that my presence is desired here in the office. Though I have to say that my work-focus today won’t be it’s usual 100% as I demand an onslaught of praise and affection from all of my team members.
As I inch toward the inevitable mid-life crisis I thought it would be fun to ask some life-altering questions. Please, feel free to contribute your answers in the comments below…
If you could be any of the following, what would you be, and why?
|…any TV/movie character?
Jack Bauer. Sure, Jack’s problems are BIG, but no matter how bad things get, it’s always over within 24 hours.
Batman. He’s runs a billion dollar company and owns some of the coolest toys on the planet. And he apparently doesn’t need much sleep, which gives him more time to play with his toys!
|…any (real) person other than yourself?
Ben Bernanke. Truly the most powerful person in the country.
|…living in any country other than your own?
New Zealand. Beautiful, warm, and I can always find side work as a movie extra!
Jon Bon Jovi. ‘Cmon… who wouldn’t? 100,000,000 Bon Jove fans can’t be wrong, can they?
|…given any wish?
Require less sleep. That would give me more time to read, learn, earn, and watch movies, and do other things I enjoy.
|…different in any way?
Less abrasive and more patient. I have little tolerance for small annoyances, which is, well, a personal annoyance.
And what about you?
