"When change is thrust upon you, and you have to operate in the moment, I think those are the most difficult times. If that happens to you -- and I hope it doesn't -- my suggestion is to not move too quickly to a permanent solution. Recognize the value of a good interim plan to give you the time and space you need to make choices that really are sound for the future."
