The First Step Is Admitting Someone Else Has A Problem


I’ve decided to swallow my pride and put it all out there.

It’s time. I need a gig again. Bills don’t pay themselves.

Feel free to email me if you’ve got thoughts/suggestions. I know I should know what I want to be when I grow up, but in the wake of TV journalism becoming a shell of its former self, I’m finding myself perpetually searching for a new professional crush.

It’s like a wise friend recently explained:

TV: I like you but I need you to have more…um….pep.

Me: But I love you and I know my stuff. I’m passionate about our relationship.

TV: Yeah, um…that’s great. But I don’t need you to be smart. Or dedicated. Or a hard worker. I need you to be peppy. Can you give me peppy?

Me: You know what? I don’t think I can do this anymore. It’s not you. It’s me. You’re happy being fluffy. You don’t want to change. And that’s ok. I am sure you will find someone perfect for you. But I need more.

TV: Cool. I’m glad you…ooooh…is that Paris Hilton?

  1. You are quite talented. Two questions that might help in figuring out new ways to apply yourself are: 1) What are your assumptions about your skills, your career, your industry? Sometimes examining and challenging those assumptions can help a person get unstuck. 2) Who do you know that has run into a wall careerwise, and found their over it? Talking to those people about their experiences can be useful in figuring out ways to get over your own wall. Good luck. Hope you keep writing your blog.
