When you run from something, you feel that you don’t measure up. John wanted something better and he didn’t know what it was; first, he had to get away from his past. Following high school, John quit the college program his parents wanted him to take, hitch-hiked through Europe, and lived on a kibbutz in Israel.
When he returned to Canada, he continued to pursue education and tried a variety of different jobs. He finally found his groove and a place where he felt he did measure up, in municipal politics and then administration. John tells us how wanting something better led him to redefine what a successful and meaningful life meant for him.
