Have you ever said, “never again”?

There is the well know saying “never say never”. In fact, there was the 1983 James Bond film “Never Say Never Again”. Aptly titled as prior to this film Sean Connery said that he would never play Bond again.

Over the past few weeks, I have been talking to friends about not doing something specific ever again (with respect to my career). There was a lot of agreement that this was, in fact, a good thing and I had made the right decision.

But today that all came to an end when a mentor/mentee of 17 years posed a question to me. Less than 30 seconds later I found myself backtracking on what I said I would never do again.

How quickly things can change. I have proved once again that you should never say never. So never again will I say never again.
