"Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it." - George Santayana
If you're like I am, you look around every once in awhile and ask yourself, "How did we get here?"
Maybe it's because we're trying to make sense of who we are and why we do what we do. I realize, some folks got into this business honestly because they were raised in roofing, but that's not all of us.
Many of us never had roofing in our plans, but once it gets into your blood, there's so many reasons why it's hard to shake yourself loose. Today is as good an excuse as any to reflect on our personal history.
If I had it to do all over again, I would still choose roofing because it's given me the freedom to live the lifestyle I always dreamed about having, even when I didn't know what I wanted to do with my life.
I'll spend my Sundays with my family going to church, having a big lunch, lounging around the house, and grabbing a nap while some kind of sports plays on the TV.
So, let me ask you, "How did you get here today?"
Seriously, if you had it to do all over again, would you still choose roofing?
P.S. Life doesn't wait around for any of us to make up our minds. It just keeps turning, racing into the future. There is no right or wrong answer; there's just your answer: "How did you get here today?"
