There's nothing fun or pleasant about suddenly losing your job or finding it dramatically changed. However, perennial daytime TV survivor Kerri-Anne Kennerley argues that when that happens, getting on with it makes more sense than sitting around and whining.

Kennerley's long running morning show on Nine looks set for a change of host next year, with Sonia Kruger apparently taking on the job as part of a deal that will also see her hosting a new version of Big Brother. But while Kennerley herself only learned of the change when a journalist contacted her over the weekend, her public approach remains philosophical:
Everybody's ego gets dinted a bit. I'm no different to anybody else in any other job who finds themselves moving on. Whether you like it or not is besides the point. Get on, suck it up and enjoy.
Obviously it helps that Kennerley apparently remains contracted to Nine, but it's still a useful reminder for all of us: accepting change is the first step in taking advantage of it.
