Sample text

I went home to think about whether I really wanted to spend the rest of my working career in such a foul environment. 42 43 One night during the shutdown, I went outside and sat down on the back step of my home. It was almost ten o'clock, and an infinite number of stars filled the sky. I sat for a long time looking up at the stars, trying to find an answer. As I watched the sky, I was reminded of another time when I had waited alone in the night. It wasn't that long ago when I stood in the gravel parking lot of the plant ready to face the men from the shop floor who had threatened me because I ran my equipment too fast.

Well, here's what Big Stan says to my boss. He says, 'Yessir, that Jimbo is one in a million. Makes me look good. Makes my life smooth as silk. I've never seen anybody who runs a machine like Jimbo. If I have anything to say about it, he's going to spend the rest of his life on that machine. Life is good with him in the shop, and I'm not lettin' anybody get him. Already had to block two attempts from other supers trying to steal him. But it ain't gonna happen, not while I'm around. ' That's what Big Stan said, Jim, I swear to God I heard him say just that.

They wondered. " Like children in the audience, they were amazed at what my "magic" produced. The worst line in the plant running at the highest productivity and efficiency was nothing short of astonishing. While the higher-ups couldn't figure out exactly how I did what I did, they were keenly aware of my significant accomplishment. I was noticed by the people who counted, and although I didn't know it at the time, I had earned something every ambitious person craves credibility. Credibility among the gatekeepers of power and position was the key I needed to unlock my future.
