I’ve been doing my early-morning job for a year now. A whole year. I told a buddy over the weekend that this week marks a full year, and his response was great… “Wow. You got up early every day for a full year.” In my head, his comment was supposed to be, “It’s amazing that it’s only been a year!” or “I’m so very impressed!” But when he made his comment, I laughed and realized immediately that my doing this job for a year really isn’t that big of a deal. There are people in this line of work that have done the same thing (only better) for 30 years plus. I’m just happy that the boss still pays me.
