Too Often We Wait for Things to Change on Their OwnI read Tad Clarke's editorial ("DM News' Unsung Hero," May 10) about the life and passing of executive editor Pat Honan. I was touched at the feelings expressed and had to pause at the overwhelming reality of our mortality.
In two weeks I will turn 49, but still consider myself to be "young." I have been stressing over my career standing and debating pursuing new opportunities for the past six months. I have the gut feeling that if things don't work out for me in my current situation, I can always try another opportunity to finally find the right company/outlook and fortune.
Too often we sit back and wait for things to change on their own, hoping the path will be made crystal clear with gold-plated invitations. I think it's time we all realized that life waits for no one - especially me!
Thank you for the insights caused by the kind words presented today. Pat sounds like someone I would have enjoyed meeting and getting to know. Pat sounds a lot like me.
Here's looking forward to new opportunities and the guts to pursue them.
