Following a layoff from a corporate job, Will finds himself now entering a meditative stage when he would take stock of his life and examine where he would go from there. He would find it to be an excellent period in which to sort things out, make plans, decide what he really wanted, and then take action. He would fight to keep busy in order to refrain from negative thinking. And despite losing his significant other when she decides to take a walk on the wild side, encountering a woman who fleeces him, being forced into yet another corporate job and losing the confidence of a potential mentor when his wife becomes ill, coupled with the illness of his prime counseling advisor, he vows not to focus on the faults of other people or engage in judgmental behavior. He finds his calling as a counselor in a high school, where he would take the opportunity to guide young men and women into leading productive lives. He would attend to matters such as keeping a couple of young men from the pitfalls of gangs and drugs, and becomes an accidental activist when confronted with beaucratic limitations, all the while listening to the viewpoints and opinions of others which would help him learn more about the people he was dealing with.
