Cube Rules – A journey

Check out Scot Herrick’s Cube Rules blog, especially the new series that started with “Laid Of — A new journey begins.”

Scot and his wife were both laid off at Washington Mutual last week and Scot has started a series on the subject with some very interesting insights into the mindset of someone going through this journey. Instead of being angry (at least in a visible way) Scot and his wife are looking at this problem as a new challenge to overcome.

I don’t expect the journey to be a long one as I expect Scot and his wife to find jobs quickly but I’ll be following along closely and hope everyone else will too.
