Pay Attention – HONY

“If you could give one piece of advice to a large group of people, what would it be?”
“Pay attention.”
“What’s something in your life that you wish you’d paid more attention to?”
“My education. And my jobs. I lost some good jobs because I didn’t pay enough attention to them. I once had a great job with the phone company fixing teletype machines. I was lucky to get it, because I was colorblind, and couldn’t tell the wires apart. But they made an exception and hired me.”
“How’d you lose the job?”
“I got in with some guys at the company who were doing heroin. And I just missed too many days of work because of it.”
