Have you ever said yes to something and then the next day you went, what the fuck was I thinking? If not then you must be a really awesome decision maker. I recently said yes to something and although I know I’ll get through it, I feel exhausted just thinking about it. Basically I’m going to be traveling for 4 weeks straight (home on the weekends) starting in mid-July. Oh, and most of the training I’ll be doing is in the south. Yeah, in July!
It’s not the heat I’m worried about though. It’s the crazy amount of driving. This is a gig I’m doing for a different company, so they are short 1 hour trainings. I do two a day. Sounds easy. Not so much. Let me just give you a sneak peek at one week of my schedule:
Monday: Arrive in Ohio
Tuesday: Train in Reynoldsburg, Ohio in the morning and then drive to Columbus for an afternoon session. Then drive to West Virginia.
Wednesday: Train in Buckhannon, West Virginia in the morning and then drive to Greensburg, Pennsylvania for an afternoon session. Then drive to Liverpool, New York.
Thursday: Train in Liverpool, New York in the morning and then drive to Erie Pennsylvania for an afternoon session.
Holy shit, right?!
If any of you have any good recommendations for books on CD, send them my way. I have a feeling it’s the only thing that will get me through those drives. That and knowing that it will all be over soon and then I can be home with my family. I also have a feeling I’m going to be doing some motivational self-talking in my head telling myself just that… It will all be over soon, it will all be over soon. No, you won’t kill anyone if you have to drive one more hour, no you won’t kill anyone if you have to drive one more hour.
