Chapter 18

I'm in the home stretch of my life, and there have been a few things that I've done that I regret to this day and forever.

The worst among them were the occasions where I was directed by my employer to do something that I knew I couldn't do. I told him I couldn't do the job and he insisted and he insisted and I caved and the result was a big screwup with people damaged and the spotlight on me.

The moral: If your boss or your lifestyle coordinator or anyone else orders you to do something that you know you're not going be able to pull off, or it will not work even if you do, you're better off quitting the job than doing it. I only wish that I had done so.


And, here's another dimension of the same idea: Every time I did something really bad, it was because I did something that someone told me to do.

So I should ever get counseling? I should find someone to tell me what to do?
