So Many Jobs but I Finally Found the Right One

Bored at jobI have to admit that at first I did not know what I wanted to do. It is safe to say that I have gone through so many jobs already, and friends sometimes get confused with what line of work I was in. One of my first work experiences was when I worked for a factory.

I was just there monitoring the pressure gauges and all the other equipment, and to be honest, it was really boring. It was something that I did not look forward to doing. After some time, I quit that job and I started to look for a new one.

The next job I applied for is being a trucker. I just saw an ad on the Internet about the company looking for some possible truckers. I was unemployed at the time, so became very interested.

I went through the test and passed, so it was okay in the beginning. It was somewhat better than my first job because I am constantly on the road, and I do meet some ineresting people from time to time, but then, the urge for me to settle down became more urgent and I knew that if I really wanted a job that would allow me to stay at home, I would have to quit being a trucker.

Being a barista was the next job that I took. It was again so different from being a trucker that I did not get the hang of it at first, but after some time, I was able to mix up various coffee drinks left, right and centre, and was also able to meet a lot of people in the process.

Happy at jobIt was fun in the beginning, but being exposed to that kind of environment day in and day out started to make me tired of it all. That was then when I realized again that I have to find a job that I am passionate about. It is a good thing that I got an IT job.

When I first started to do IT, that was when I realized that I truly liked and enjoyed it. I have been doing it for years now, and I know that I do not want to look for another job. Mainly, I think the reason why I like it so much is because I am constantly helping other people with the work that I do.

I know that if I would do things perfectly, other people will benefit from it and that makes me happy. With all the other jobs that I did, it was not causing me or the people who will get the things from me happiness, but with IT, I can bring smiles to their faces even if just a short while.

In the world of IT, I know that the facts and information are always changing. I have to be up to date all the time in order to keep up with competitors too.

It is a good thing that I really like it because when I am constantly learning, I am happy. I know I would not look elsewhere for a job now, as I am completely satisfied. If you are having troubles searching for the right job too, just try the different ones available.

Chances are you will find the right one for you.

Soccer is for Americans Too

One of the misconceptions of American people is that soccer cannot be played there because Americans are more interested in other sports.

Gold Cup US Honduras SoccerI do have to admit that it is somewhat true in that there are other sports that are more popular than soccer in America, but over the past few years I have seen the change with how people view soccer. If in the past, it was not given that much attention, some people are striving to learn more about it right now. In fact, some people like me, even play it on weekends.

What a lot of people do not know is that soccer has been available in America for over 200 years, but it has not gained enough recognition probably because it was being overshadowed by all the other sports out there, an example of which is basketball.

This sport is very popular in America. Yet, the rapid growth of soccer does not surprise me because what is not to love about soccer?

Primarily, I think one of the main reasons why Soccer has become more popular is because there are a lot of immigrants from different countries who are highly interested in this sport.

Weekend soccer gamesTheir enthusiasm for soccer has grown and has managed to infect even those who were not too familiar with the sport before. What I know, is that I have always been interested in this sport, even before its sudden rise to fame.

What I believe is that there is a need for people to become fit, especially if they plan on playing sports.

There is a good reason why a lot of athletes look great, and this is because they take good care of their bodies. Here are some tips which I believe will help people stay fit and healthy:

  • Keep Track of the Food that You Eat – The food that you eat will become apparent in your physical looks. If you try to eat more organic food products and you try to monitor the food that you eat, then you will not have some problems.
  • Move More and Exercise More – There are some people who tend to forget to move especially during weekdays when there is work. This will help a lot.
  • Get Enough Sleep – One of the things that people tend to forget is to have time to sleep. There are instances when people do not sleep much probably because of the fact that they have too much work to do and also because they tend to work even late at night. When people get enough sleep, there is a lesser chance that people will overeat.
  • Hydrate Constantly – It is always important for people to drink water probably because the organs need water in order to function normally throughout the day.
  • Rest – By resting, this does not necessarily mean that the person has to sleep all the time, but it is important for the person to take breaks and rest, in order to refresh the body.

These are just some of the things that people can do to keep fit and to be able to play the various sports and other physical activities required to keep the body healthy.

You may have your own ways to keep fit also.

Disclaimers

Disclaimer, important sign - stampDisclaimers, Disclaimers, Disclaimers!!!

I am an IT Consultant, and this is the reason why I have to constantly talk with potential clients so that they can be informed better about how they can use the Internet to promote their business. There was a time when promoting your business would have to be done through radio and television advertisements, but these types of advertisements can cause a lot of money.

On the Internet, the costs are not too high and since there are so many people who use it every day, more people can be reached with the right use of the correct internet tools.

Usually, my job is to give proper information on how to improve the structure of their systems in order to be safe, secure and at the same time, very easy to use.

Other things that I have to do are the following :-

  • Time management of plans and execution of the plan. Usually, the different projects that I have, fall under a certain time period. Failure to do this will lead to the failure of the whole project.
  • Organizing the various sectors of website or project. Sometimes this involves training the different staff members that will be of help during the onset of the plan or the project.
  • Understanding the specification of the business of the client. It is highly important that I know what the client is selling or offering to the public, because through that, I will be able to gather details on how I can execute the proposed plan properly that will benefit the client.

There was a time when I could do anything that I want for my clients. My clients can just say what is on their mind and I can design a program or help them start out something that can be beneficial for their business or website, but as the Internet became more popular, more and more people started to have some issues on the Internet. This is the reason why disclaimers are created.

If you are not sure what a disclaimer is, it is a statement saying that anything that has been said cannot be used for civil liability.

The disclaimer can be very helpful especially if there are some things that are not liked by other companies, especially those who are in the same industry, but making some disclaimers would involve a lot of paper work.

I have to admit that I love writing, and actually, this might be one of the reasons why my job works for me, but there are instances when I would have to work a bit later than usual because I have to make a lot of disclaimers, or study the disclaimers of other companies as well.

It can take a lot of time because I am very meticulous about details. Details are always important in disclaimers. If one fact would not be placed there, this can become a big problem in the long run.

If you are not sure if you understand the main reason why disclaimers are necessary, let us put it this way – I do not like my clients to get sued. I do not want to get sued as well.

Not having disclaimers sometimes will allow other people to do just that. Heard of the saying, “Everybody sue everybody.”?

This is because in the industry that I am in, it is very likely that someone is bound to sue. Being sued can become a stressful event in any person’s life and I would like to avoid that entirely. It just so happens that the only way to avoid it is by making disclaimers. Since disclaimers are here to stay and I like my job, so be it.
