WHAT WOULD YOU DO IF YOU KNEW - FOR CERTAIN - THAT YOU HAD ONE WEEK TO LIVE? Some would spend the time getting their legal affairs in order, revising wills, and writing out detailed instructions. Others would spend much of that time calling, writing or e-mailing family, friends, lovers and ex-lovers. Some might try to squeeze in something they have always wanted to do or visit or make an exceptional donation. Still others might clean out the refrigerator, dust the furniture, wash the floors and do the laundry. And some… might kill.
After 21 years with an airline, TWA, I left to do my own thing as a management consultant. That's how it seems to work - if for whatever reason someone leaves a real, Monday to Friday, 9-5 job, they become management consultants. So what happens to someone who leaves management consulting after 30 years? In my case it was writing a book about things I know nothing about, but applying the experiences amassed during an interesting life while living and working in many different countries around the world, and looking at my country from within and from the outside. I live in Carpinteria, CA with my singer-songwriter-editor- partner, Jackie, and our dog, Yogi.
