For most of the winter, my day job of being a real estate appraiser has been very quiet. I've just recently gotten busier, not uber busy, but busier. I've been active in a couple of new organizations in downtown Waukesha; Downtown Waukesha, LLC and the Downtown Property Alliance which has consumed more of my time. I've also been busy helping with the Elect Shawn Reilly campaign as Waukesha desperately needs a new mayor. (Waukesha residents vote Shawn Reilly for mayor on April 1st) After a long hiatus the Cigar Store Alliance of Wisconsin has been heating up as there is a Bill in the legislature which would greatly increase taxes. There are always tasks that need tending to at the Ash.
So why am I whining to you fine folks? Well I'm not really, I'm going to share some clarity. I've always had things fill my schedule and at times it can be overwhelming. I also know that I'm not alone in that regard, everyone is busy. That said, while things need to get done, none of it is worth truly stressing about. I found myself this morning worrying about how I'll get everything done and thinking I'm going to have to pull back on this or that. Well you know what? It will all get done and part of making sure it gets done is taking time to decompress. For me, that entails a fine craft beer or whiskey and a premium stick. I was going to skip out on Wednesday night poker tonight so I didn't fall further behind but instead; I'm going to play some poker, enjoy an adult beverage and relax with a great cigar so I can get things done! That my friends is called "The right attitude"! I suggest you do the same cuz it's better to work to live than live to work!
Jeff's claim to fame is that he sleeps with the owner of the Nice Ash. Jeff will share his musings on cigars, whiskey, beer, poker and any other things that peak his interest. I hope you enjoy.
