What is Your Expiration Date?

Best before

The Eli Manning benching last week got me thinking. Everyone has an expiration date. Job and Life.

I do not want to be morbid, so lets stick to work.

Most of us think we can go on forever in our current jobs or maybe just our vocation. Recently I have started to question this. Eli Manning put in almost 14 seasons at QB for the Giants and then getting benched got me thinking. Maybe we saw it coming and just ignored the signals. He certainly still has a few miles left on the tires.  We know the fall out  of his situation and the folks who were fired today. Maybe he gets a second chance. Not all of us are so lucky.

As the eternal optimist I don’t want to believe in expiration dates, however they exist and we should always plan for the inevitable.

I will be back in 2018 to explore this further…food for thought.
