I have been thinking for a while now, where is my future?
I have always been able to cope with and embrace change in technology, embrace it, think beyond that innovation & then worked a way to see, in part, where the path will take us.
I am at another one right now, but this time I have seen a pathway being taken, which can really only lead to no innovation, more frustratingly there HAS TO BE A BETTER WAY.
I talk of a network production house for commercial advertising. I can go and do this job, tell myself that this is the way it has to be, because if I don’t do it then someone else will. So I’d better stay there to be earning the much needed dollar to “fill the fridge” every week. I wonder if that’s the path I actually want to go any more.
I was told when my radio career started that radio isn’t a place for perfectionists, its a place for those striving to get there, but willing to take a personal knock or two on the way to get to the career path I’d chosen. The almighty dollar wins out every time & that’s so true. I took too many knocks on the way and found that being a perfectionist is only in my eye, to others, who think they know better have different ideas.
