My wife and I are involved in writing/publishing/promotion twenty-four/seven. It isn't a day job; it's life.
Know your limitations and be content with them. Too much ambition results in promotion to a job you can't do.

Es ist mein Job, nie zufrieden zu sein.

One Way: Jesus! One Job: Evangelism!
Being ready isn't enough; you have to be prepared for a promotion or any other significant change.
