“Perhaps not a quote, but a general philosophy: for each military assignment you had to walk into a new role, new environment, take on new challenges and reach new summits. Transitioning to the civilian world is no different. Use your hard-earned skills of research, reconnaissance and observation and be willing to learn from those around you and change your approaches to getting what you want and need for you and your family post-military. Colleagues that were inflexible and unwilling to understand and adapt to the civilian world (which is a lot bigger than the military microcosm) were not as successful. The longer you’re not successful, the harder it becomes…sometimes ending up in a vicious circle.”
