  2. I would consider myself one of the lucky ones. I do not have to work weekends. There is some overnite travel when training occurs. All in all I work for a fabulous company that treats there employees very well. My leasure time is usually spent catching up with friends and relatives also. Have a great week!

    After a long run/marathon of drawings and details and staring at my screens for extended periods of time with the purpose of getting the job done and meeting then time table, aside of reading or movies the next best thing I do is…nothing. At least till I get antsy enough to have to sit back down and draw some more lines!

    Hi Mike and all!!
    I’m neurotic with my work. I love what I do and learning shortcuts! I’m 62 yrs old and have been in the fiield since graduating from a trade school for drafting in 1965. Started with Autocad in late 80’s until present (worked in Microstation for 8 yrs also for different companies).

    Just started 2 yaars ago with the best place I’ve ever worked, “International Chimney in Buffalo,NY. I do structural/mechanical/equipment design & layout for new and conversion projects. Internatioal Chimney does some of the largest smoke stacks in US and also has moved several lighthouses, winning awards for the largest and most unusual projects.
    Try as I may, my work always crops up in my leisure timeI

    I’m a Tai Chi instructor with Taoist Tai Chi Society (worlds largest Tai Chi group) and teach on volunteer basis only. Had the great fortune to meet and study under its founder, Master Moy Lin Shin, a truly enlightened master!

    I enjoy spending time with my wife, Duana, and our (8) children and (6) grandkids.

    Gotta get back to work before I get in trouble – way behind in a ridiculous schedule.!!

    GREAT GROUP AND GREAT TIPS!!!

    Thank you

    Ron Bouvy

  37. Rob Carney says:

    Hi Mike,

    Working for oneself has many advantages which allows me to work around life issues… with any spare time i like to play and sometimes record music… folk music… a wee bit of traditional too… beer is good too especially Porter, but mainly music.

    Playing with the boys is always fun, getting out and about in the fields and getting a bit done around the house…
