Is it time to Move on
Often I am asked by confused senior Managers - How do I know it is time for me to move on ??? Let me share this lovely short poem of Lilburn Townsend . As you finish reading it, you will know ... ANOTHER TACK When you suspect you're going wrong, Or lack the strength to move along With placid poise among your peers, Because of haunting doubts or fears It's time for you to shift your pack, And steer upon another tack ! When men laugh at your woeful plight, And seek your old repute to blight; When all the world bestows a frown, While you are sliding swiftly down: It's time for you to show your grit, And let the scoffers know you're fit ! When failures open your luckless door, And struts across the creaking floor; When fortune flees and leaves you bare, And former friends but coldly stare: It's time for you to take a tack, And show the world you are coming back !
