Last ever blog entry

Not really, but it seems that this blog:
http://www.urbanmonk.net/
started this thing where you make your pretend last blog entry, and I was 'tagged' by this guy:

To make mine. So here we go:

===========

There is nothing 'special' or 'talented' or 'clever' about the people who start up companies, or write songs, or write novels, or achieve great things. Their DNA is just like anyone else. I have no natural musical ability at all, and cannot sing a single note in tune, yet I ended up a guitar teacher. I can barely swim, yet worked as a boatbuilder. They didn't even have computers when I was at school. I work as a computer programmer. All it takes is time, persistance and confidence.

If you don't like your job. LEAVE. It's really not that hard. It's much less risky than you think it is. You will *not* starve in the street. If you really want to make a success of yourself then get on with it. Don't sit watching TV and drinking beer and surfing the web and kidding yourself yourself that you are 'unlucky' or 'didn't get the opportunities. If you are educated, computer savvy and healthy, then you have an advantage over 90% of the planets population. Quit dreaming and start doing.

And don't pay too much attention to doom mongers telling you that you are mad to quit a 'nice' 'safe' job. I once quit a £54k job as an IT consultant (about ten years ago), and don't regret it one bit.

What you need is more self belief, and less concern about what others think of you.
Bye all. :D
