The Ceiling

A ceiling usually imposes a limit. It sets a standard for homes, offices and even sports arenas. But, there really is no ceiling.

I may have goals, but they do not limit what I can further accomplish.

In two weeks, I will begin a 10-week journey in Phoenix reporting on post 9/11 veterans using a myriad of mediums and sources. Then, I will return to South Florida and work some more.

Reflecting on LeBron James' fourth MVP award in five seasons, Dwyane Wade said James wants to maximize what God gave him. And the same is true for me.

I will not "settle" for an entry-level reporter position at a newspaper, be it high-profile or local. I would be thankful, yes, but I will strive for a top editor position and then some.

Ceilings are deceptive. They limit creativity and belief. Everything from "Where is the money in journalism?" to "Is your job stable?"

I will answer those questions. Count on it. I do not have a ceiling.
