What Do You Do for a Living?


Recommended Posts

I’m an oil field operator for a major oil and gas company. It’s hot. It’s hard work but when I have down time I get to pull out the clubs and hit as many balls as I can afford.

Wow, a lot of IT guys............cough nerds cough..........just kidding, don't hurt me. I'm a college student, majoring in sororities if you catch my drift.

I'm a software/web consultant. I like looking through the server logs mid-day to see who's browsing the main site (we don't keep statistics on forum usage). It's always a bunch of people using thei

I am retired!!   My last job was as President and CEO of Omega Performance.  An international training company that focused on the technical training of commercial lenders, as well as training government agencies that audit commercial loans. 

Prior to that I was a senior executive (VP) with AchieveGlobal, at that time among the world's largest training companies with offices throughout the world.  We specialized in training in the areas of leadership, customer service and sales.  One neat thing we did was do the training for all the volunteers for the 2002 Olympic Winter Games.

I have always been in the training and development space since I finished graduate school in 1973.

So now I play golf and do whatever is on the "honey do" list.  :-)

I am recently retired, March, 2019, as a police sergeant. During my career I worked patrol, narcotics and lost my mind when I took a couple promotions. Just recently started playing golf again after a long hiatus and hope to be able to devote quite a bit of time to become much better.

I was a furniture designer and importer for quite a number of years. I retired from that and wasn't happy with retirement, so I applied for and got the job as the Youth Director at my synagogue. I did that for 9 years and was then promoted to Executive Director. I held that position for another 6 years before our synagogue merged with another one. We moved to their building and their management team took over, forcing me into retirement again. I worked part time for 4 years running the proshop at a local golf course and left there about 3 years ago.

I'm now employed full time by 2 while fluffy doggies who make me accede to their every whim.

Retired army surgeon.  I now coach high school track, cross country, and wrestling.  And play golf the rest of the time. So I stay busy.  After 37 years in service and practice, I am enjoying the change.

So sorryto hear about this. There's way too much of this sort of thing going on that gets overlooked in the news of the current economy. I hope you find something enjoyable and satisfying to do into the future.

Still teaching 8th Grade Social Studies... but now I get to do it in my underwear!  We have been teaching through Digital Learning Days since mid March.  My last day in the classroom was March 12th, and we are not going back into the classroom this school year.

    • Finally birdied #9. It was one of those "boring" birdies on a par 5; Pulled drive to right rough, good lay up to fairway 50 yards short of the green, 60° to 12' and a good putt to make it a nice 4.  Yes! 
    • I have struggled with my golf swing for a long time with over the top problem resulting in big slices, pulls, and inconsistent contacts. My handicap ranges from 18 to 21 and I have broken 90 less than 5 times in my life with a total of 10 years of golf. I have tried many changes and took instructions but the changes never stick. Like many amateurs sometimes I thought I have discovered the magic fix only to be disappointed later. I hope this is not the case. In the last month, I have experimented with Stack and Tilt and I found out that it allows me to have better contact with the ball and minimize the over the top problem. In my last two rounds, I have shot 14, and 10 over. In the last few months I also have a golf simulator which allowed me to practice almost daily. I don't know if the two low scores are the results of stack and tilt or the simulator or both. I find that it is easier to pivot on the left foot for both the full swing, pitching and chipping. With the full swing, stack and tilt method somehow allows my right elbow to be closer to my body and I turn and swing the club from the inside much better. I was hitting the driver 240 to 270 in the last two rounds. Before I used to hit the driver 220 to 240. I will play again in 2 weeks, it will be interesting if I can break 90 again. Has anyone else had similar success with stack and tilt?
    • Day 117.  I spent well over five minutes trying to figure out my timing via the tempo app, as per Erik's Covid-19 drills day 8.  I think I got it (85 bpm) and got some practice with that and the app in;  I'll aim to get some video to see if I'm doing this right before doing the second half of the drill.
    • I lipped out an eagle putt on the #2 hc hole, but tapped in the remaining 1 footer for birdie. It was on hole #5 which was vacant of a birdie on the excel sheet. My driver was working well for me today. - 8 at this point.
