Two months ago he was neck and neck with Obama in the presidential race. Now he has a new job. Watch late-night comedians take on Mitt Romney’s new job with Marriott Hotels in this short video:
Jokes and Hugh Hefner aside, Mitt Romney is a prime example of adapting to the unpredictability of life.
One day he was in a position where he could become the most powerful man in the world and the next he had to get back in the saddle again. We have to give it to Mitt Romney, he swiftly bounced back, or maybe Marriott Hotels was really quick to come up with an offer?
The only thing that’s certain is uncertainty
If someone had mentioned Mitt Romney of Marriott Hotels to you a couple of months ago you would have thought it was different person. But on Marriott’s board is where you find him nowadays. Not only did Marriott get good publicity out of it it presumably also enabled Romney to swiftly adapt to the fact that he will not be moving into The White House.
Personally think it’s commendable that he has already moved on and hopefully feels fine about it. If so, he serves as a good example for all of us that we have to adapt to the uncertainty that is always an aspect of life. We can only plan so much because circumstances impact all we do. And no positive thinking in the world could change the fact that he didn’t get elected. So Romney seems to have accepted the outcome and moved on. Would not be surprised if he, like a lot of politicians, ends up sitting on more boards of directors.
Do you agree with me that the only thing that’s certain in life is uncertainty? Or are you of the opinion that we are able to plan everything? Do you believe it’s a good idea to swiftly accept what life brings us and move on? Was it a good idea for Mitt Romney to accept an offer from The Marriott Group so soon? Do you think it was commendable that got back in the saddle again so swiftly?
