Do what you can
Too many people want someone else to blame for their own problems. If you want to take a job that will pay very well, then you should be ready to deserve it. It may be strenuous, mentally and physically. It may require long hours. It may require exhaustive planning. It might require skills that you do not possess or are able to attain. You just might fail at it. Take some personal responsibility for your own actions. You are not cut out to do everything. You have the right to choose the life you earn. Read that again. You have the right to choose the life you earn. If you want it then go get it but there will be failures and you should own up to them. It is not everyone else's responsibility to hold your hand at every missed step of your chosen journey through life. You make your own choices and you want to reap the rewards but you do not want to accept the pitfalls of your plans. And sometimes you are just too old to do some jobs. It is not the company's fault that you are not able to do the work. Maybe you are not seasoned enough to handle seasonal work. Leave it to those who can do the job right and proper. Go to work, do the job that makes you happy, but do the work you can do properly, or leave it for those who can and will.
