Sometimes fact is stranger than fiction.
An old Jamaican saying goes that when man makes plans, the gods laugh. Even so, learning to plan effectively can make a world of difference in our lives. Life doesn't get easier, but we can learn to get better at tackling the things that make it hard.
Most of us will go through unemployment, underemployment, or a financial rut at some point in our lives.
We can all recover from this, but that depends on how we handle the situation.
