Everyone has a moment in their career where they look ahead and wonder if they are on the right path. Or, even worse, hit an unavoidable pothole, and end up unemployed.

When facing a crappy road or even the blown-out tire of getting fired, you face a CHOICE.

You can let despair overwhelm you, and do nothing but marinate in self pity. OR, you can take a deep breath and realize you have the TOOLS to fix the situation.

The most important tools:
self-awareness of your skills,
your network of friends/colleagues, and
a phone.

When in doubt, ask for help and remember that you got this!
