Katie Couric on Career Goals, Words With Friends, and Her Best Christmas Gift Ever

Katie Couric is featured in 30 Things Every Woman Should Have and Should Know by the Time She’s 30, a book by the editors of Glamour magazine that was released this week. Her advice? “If you’re not exactly where you wanted to be exactly when you wanted to be there, don’t sweat it.”

I didn’t make the deadline I had set for myself of becoming a network correspondent by 30, but my hard work paid off when I was 32 and Tim Russert asked me to be a deputy Pentagon correspondent. That’s when I thought, Wow, I’m on my way.

Couric is also the subject of Us Weekly’s “25 Things You Don’t Know About Me” this week. Among her secrets: she’s addicted to Words with Friends, her best Christmas gift ever was a Bacon of the Month club membership from Al Roker, and she has a framed photo in her house of Colin Firth. (“Not with me. Just him.”)
