He has never taken any job with the idea it was going to be a long-term career. His attitude was always "I'm going to learn something in this job, and I'm going to have some fun while I'm doing it. And what I learn will make me more valuable to the next place I go.

His mantra: "Most people don't understand a simple fact: Getting a job is a job in itself."
