    If I could go back to 1980 and start over in highschool, I'de get heavily involved in computers and start an on-line store where people could sell stuff. I would call it eBay maybe something catchy like that.

    I sometimes try to imagine what else I could be doing. I can not imagine doing anything else.

    I think I would have kept the same trade, but if I could do it over I would have bought up as much real estate as I could in my twenties and thirties,

    This is a difficult concept for me. I did not choose HVAC, life chose it for me. I am just the type of person that becomes obsessed with whatever I do. I am also the type of person that becomes bored after a certain amount of years of doing the same thing. HVAC has offered me different directions in which to satisfy my need for change now and then.

    So, in retrospect, while I don't think I would deliberately change the career path I took, I do believe that I would have walked any path in a similar manner that I have walked the HVAC path.

    Just think; if I my first job oportunity was in porn, I would have started out as an underaged phenomenum, progressed into being a mediocre John Holmes type, worked my into training women how to do their job properly and eventually becoming a sales rep for adult toys.
