Be Early - Change the Game

 Tomorrow is D-Day or to be cliche ridden - the first day of the rest of my life.  Tomorrow is my last day of employment as an office person.  A pod job, if you will.  Tomorrow I bid adieu.

Don't be on time, be early.  

That was one of the lessons that Dad taught me.  He might not have said those exact words but for every activity he ever took me to as a child - we were early.  Not just early, but the first to arrive.  It was like a silent mantra throughout my growing up years.

There's something to be said for being early.  It takes some thought and a plan.  Late - that's a snap, that's what happens when you don't plan.  In everything from slogging through a job day after day, to daily life and meeting your obligations, you need to plan or risk tardiness. 

So now as I'm left with one last day of employment, I realize that the ability to quit my job now was also a lesson from Dad. 

If the playing field no longer fits - find a new game.  

As the result of a plan and a life-long lesson to be early, tomorrow is the last day before I make an early exit from what had become more job than career.   

To lessons learned and new beginnings.

Cheers Dad - Happy Father's Day!
