What do I want to be?

Posted: November 12, 2012 in Life

I recently made the decision to go back to school.  I guess the fact that all my previous college credits are over 10 years old and can not be transferred is a good thing as it will be much easier to get my GPA high enough to transfer into the program that I want.

So this decision lead to a very interesting conversation in my head.  What do I want to be?  I know that the degree I want is in Industrial Engineering and then an MBA on top of that.  Basically that will have me trained as a person that is the link between the brainiacs and the business.

So, do I want to stay in software development?  Probably not.  I’m tired of sitting in a cubical all day.  I would want something that gets my hands dirty.  Then it hit me last night, tools.  I love tools.  I have my lathe I have been working on for a while now.  I have also thought about building several other work stations to do things ranging from jewelry to glass.

Maybe I can get something, not developing new tools, but making existing tools better.  Maybe a voice activated controls for certain tools.  I don’t know, but this is the most interesting idea I have had so far.
