There is much truth in his statement. In this article, I will describe my own experiences from which I’ve learned you can’t make everyone happy, and tell you why that’s alright.
I dunno. Seems like the usual ‘Get off your duff and wealth and happiness will follow’ type website. By someone neither wealthy, nor happy.
The reason geeks don’t have lives is that their social skills are underdeveloped. This is the same reason that the guy in the story is addressed as “the computer guy” by the little kid in the story. He seems not to have any other interesting characteristics — whose fault is that?
Hey, moron, if you don’t like the reaction you get when you tell people you work in computer support, stop telling people you work in computer support.
Um, that sad commentary describes every job in IT. If you don’t like it then acquire a blue Best Buy shirt and promptly forget everything you know about technology. Some foreigner will gladly do it cheaper.
This guy has all the business acumen of a prostitute wearing a t-shirt that says “I have Herpes”.. Damn man, get some sticktoitiveness.
My god what a whiner! Seriously. I’m a “computer guy” and have been professionally for years. Even on my worst days I’m not half as defeatist as this guy. All jobs and industries have their downsides. The real issue is that not all the people in IT are cut out for IT. This guy isn’t. Sorry. Its probably the truth. Not to mention, if you just want a desk job in IT then get into programming, dont do support or systems admin. If you’re not bright enough to code you’re not bright enough to do support or sys admin.
This ‘computer guy’ isn’t talented or anything. How the hell can it take 5 hours to fix a computer. Spyware can be removed with hijackthis within 10 minutes. Prepared Windows installs can be done within 25 minutes and hardware diagnosing ain’t rocket science either. In a worst case scenario backing everything up and doing a reinstall with your shiney script and portable HD will take 40 minutes. This guy should sharpen up his business morals and enjoy the idea being employed at all.
So let me get this straight… you graduate college, get a great job (which most people would kill for) then get tired of it, go to another, repeat, etc etc and we are somehow supposed to feel sorry for you? Not only that, but we’re supposed to donate money to your deadbeat ass? Here’s a reality check for you – work is HARD WORK that’s why it’s called WORK and not SLEEP! Get off your dead-ass and get a real job like the rest of us. Try having a wife, 3 kids, being laid-off, and having to scratch around to feed them. Maybe you should donate money to ME or at least go out and make yourself useful and stop WHINING about the fact that you have to WORK for a living. Do us all a favor to, quit writing, cause you suck. Bet you won’t print this in your whiny self-righteous blog. Kiss off lazy ass.
This guy needs to get over himself. There are enough shit jobs out there with no thanks included. Computer Guys should be different in just which way? Feeling worn out? Find another job. Whooptie crap. How often do you think nurses, garbagemen, electric linemen, train drivers, truck drivers, and a litany of other jobs that keep things running are appropriately thanked? Welcome to life, jerkbag.
All of the above are actual quotes from LifeReboot.com readers.
For one reason or another, these readers believed that the articles I’ve written were worthy of public mockery.
I’m comfortable with that.
These “one-time-readers” can say what they like about me or my site, and vow never to visit LifeReboot.com ever again. They’re not obligated to enjoy, agree with, or applaud my writing — they’re entitled to their own opinions. They can think that everything I have to say is crap, and go on to try and convince the rest of the world that everything I have to say is crap.
I can’t control what other people think about me, my site, or my writing.
What I can control though, is what I think about these things myself.
I enjoy writing. I also enjoy sharing things I’ve written. In creating this blog, I’ve embraced what makes me happiest and feel confident that I could do this for as long as I want and never get tired of it. I’m very proud of myself for realizing my dream and making changes in my life so that I could pursue it.
The truth is, my dream never involved an expectation to write things that everyone likes. I recognize how I can’t accomplish that, because I understand that nobody can accomplish that. Nobody can make everyone happy.
You should therefore accept that you can’t make everyone happy either — and know that it’s alright, because nobody expects you to. When you put yourself out there for the world to see, there will undoubtedly be people who will disagree with you. You’ll upset people, make them angry, and once you do, they’ll do their best to boo you off stage.
Don’t let them succeed in doing so. Let go of the idea that you can make everyone happy, and focus on making yourself happy. That is something you can control. It’s up to everybody else to decide whether or not they want to be happy along with you.
