Comfortability, Retirement, Misplacement, Layoffs or Ageing Out Often Means Death
This is the MOST important thing Radio Facts has taught me. Over the years I have written many death notices with headlines that say “Vet Dies” in your emails. I can honestly tell you, at one time it started to take a toll on me and sent me spiraling into a dark funk. Mostly because a LOT of it was preventable. Yes, you read that right, PREVENTABLE. A majority of the people who get sick and die almost always have the same set of circumstances, they are not working and can’t get back in the industry. They really die of broken hearts that morph into ailments and diseases. They get frustrated then depressed then ill and then they die.
Out of 100% of the deaths I’ve written about over the years at least 90% of the cases are what I described above. No joke when I say this… KEEP WORKING, PLAN FOR LIFE AFTER THE INDUSTRY AND PURSUE YOUR OTHER PASSIONS… NOW!!! When you get up each day without goals, drive, passion or purpose you develop the soul of an invalid and it’s hard to bounce back. Quite often this comes from a lack of preparation while we are working or failing to plan for the future and the refusal to accept a consistently changing industry. It will not change back to the industry that you once knew in your lifetime, accept the changes and be willing to go with them.
