Racing is life. Anything before or after is just waiting.
I was just given the opportunity to work as a costumer service rep for an aviation school. This opportunity could not be more perfectly timed. Over this last year I have been striving to complete my degree in Aeronautics and while I am still a year out it is definitely time for a change. I have been very successful in my current job working at a bicycle shop. Bikes are my passion and for the last 10 years they have been a main focus. I have poured 7 years of my life into this bike shop often allowing other priorities to fall to the wayside. Today I had to watch as one of our best employees was utterly humiliated and asked to stop talking to employees. The last 7 years working for the company has afforded me a great lesson in management of people having had 9 managers since my initial employment.
I am sitting here trying to focus on current priorities but I cannot stop thinking about how much of a monster my “job” has become in my life. All the hard work I have put into a $10 an hour job seams pretty senseless. The store I help run has become very dependent on my employment but has not thought show my value to them. So should I quit? Or should I continue to help them through the end of the season? I is not in me to quit and give up, but the scales are very uneven and will most likely not change.
What to do…
