The most difficult aspect about transitioning from a professional in the military to a professional as a civilian is also the most valuable.


I spoke with an old friend today, also an Air Force flight line veteran though we didn't serve together.


Well, that's not true. We both served at the same restaurant together immediately post service.


He works in government now as an advocate and service provider for veterans struggling to find meaningful work as civilians. I obviously aim to do the same in a slightly different, slightly less official capacity.


He and I agreed that the ongoing act of translating our skills and experiences and adjusting our frameworks from the military are both difficult and rewarding.


Almost nothing is a one-to-one. All success is found in not just managing progressive change but driving progressive change. First within ourselves then for our organization.


Do the work that's right in front of you, and see what happens.
