Sounds like a contradiction but I’m finding that it’s a pretty good work/life philosophy. ( See – You can always work, etc…)
Some days I have nowhere to go and all day to get there. I think Paul Simon once wrote : I have nothing to do today but smile.”
I worked a load out last week. There was lots of yelling by the road crew and running around which was pretty counter productive. It was not a matter of if you were going to get hurt, it was a matter of when and so I was pretty cautious all night. The whole process was more like an evacuation than a load out.
I’m finally finding, after all these years, that I can work at a good, steady pace without stressing myself out and still manage to get the job done.
