My business partner and I are from different worlds. I am from Atlanta and he is from New Jersey. That being said, we are both in a world today that neither of us are familiar with — MOUNTAIN TIME.
No. Not the time zone. It’s the time warp we find ourselves living in everyday.
Nobody returns calls. Nobody shows up when they say they will. The people up here just sort of stride thru life in a carefree manner. I’m not sure about the work ethic. I’m not sure about the ambition level. I’m not sure about the level of pride. Maybe I’m wrong and all of this is good? Maybe going 100mph everyday for 18 hours is bad? Maybe jumping on phone calls immediately is bad? Maybe showing up at warp speed is bad? I’m just not convinced the slow pace is all that great. They still get cancer. They still have heart attacks, They still run over each other in cars. From what I can see the slow pace is killing folks at about the same rate as a normal pace.
Me? I don’t like the slow pace. I love the area and I love most of the people…I just don’t think I’ll ever adjust to Mountain Time.
