A sportscaster emailed me to explain he was getting out of the industry.
“I’m only 30 but I feel 50,” he wrote. “It was fun to dream but sometimes you have to wake up and do something you might not like to stay relevant in the world.”
I reviewed this guy’s work history, his efforts in the job market, and the way he was presenting himself to employers. After, I came to a poignant conclusion:
He gave up before he sincerely tried.
