The Way Ahead

42-19762237

In light of last week’s announcements, is it time to think about outside options, especially in these troubled times?

I’ve never experienced extremely difficult financial times and pondering what I would do should the worst happen is a new to me. Perhaps it’s a reflection of our (meaning, societal) affluence that I’d never really thought through what it could mean – cutting back on costs, thinking more wisely about saving/investing for retirement, paying school fees for kids, and generally living on much, much less. All these fiscally responsible things are just so darn new that I feel somewhat unprepared. It’s not that I feel that I won’t cope but more that I didn’t seriously plan for it and that I neglected being true to myself.

Perhaps this isn’t just about me, but the general surprise that has beset us all.

Tomorrow’s a Big Day

Tomorrow the company goes to the Market with our half year numbers. Along with that comes our long-awaited company restructure. So, my diary has been loaded thus:
– 9am: CEO presents the new structure
– 10am: Marketing Director explains ramifications to the department
– 11am: my GM tells us if we have a job or if it’s a spill and fill

Good times.
