Timing....

Oct 18, 2012 -- 9:03pm

I remember the day my Dad called me in 1990 and said ," I just happened to be listening to the radio and they were saying goodbye to someone. So there is a job open. I know you love music, so maybe you'd wanna check it out."

The fact is the one thing I've always wanted to do since I was a very young boy listening to KRDG was to be on the radio. I never really told anyone but I would always listen to the music but more so, I would listen to who was talking...they way they spoke...the things they talked about...the contests ....and I always thought....I could do that!....

Well the Timing was right...I dropped whatever I was doing and drove right to the radio station....I talked with the receptionist who told me there was not a job available. I was very persistent and really wasn't going to leave until I got to the bottom of whatever my Dad heard on the radio. Finally a woman poked her head over a cubical and said ...."Are you talking about the internship?".....I didn't know....I just knew I wanted to be in that radio station more than anything......

After a lengthy interview she asked if I could be there the next morning at 5am and do whatever they told me to. I proudly said Yes.....and the journey began......

I worked 6 months for free and eventually got hired on and the rest is history......was it perfect timing?...I believe so....

Often wonder about timing....the things I do...the places I go....what draws me to these places...events.......a simple dinner that turns into more than just that....the opportunities that arise....are they because of perfect timing? Sometimes I really think so.....it's often been said that everything happens for a reason......one can be in a time of consideration...figuring what's really right for them...the hopes and goals they have.....trying to sort things out....taking a break if you will.......There are times when the whole room can go away but because of circumstances in the past it causes the moment to simply not be the right time. ...or is it?......It's all about timing with so many things.....so many things...........timing.....here's to the day when the time and the timing is just right.....
