A Lesson Learned Tonight

Conan O'Brien agreed to a $45 million settlement to leave "The Tonight Show," with $33 million to O'Brien and the staff receiving $12 million. O'Brien's last show was Fri Jan 22. Jay Leno returns to host "The Tonight Show" on Mar 1. In 2004, NBC announced Jay Leno leaves "The Tonight Show" and Conan O'Brien takes over. There were plans years ago for the transition.

The Leno and O'Brien event is a reminder to a common life lesson. There are no guarantees in life. Nobody in the history of mankind ever had a life went 100% his or her way. Nobody. Action must be taken to correct a mistake, to get back on schedule, to start over, to acquire more information to get it done, to recover from a sorrow moment, to bounce back from a defeat.

The ratings for "The Jay Leno Show" and "The Tonight Show with Conan O'Brien" were low. Both shows failed. Mistakes happened. NBC needed action to correct including settling with O'Brien because NBC breeched the contract. The mistake cost $45 million.

There are no guarantees in life.
