Science alert: When cows see a storm coming, they wait for the storm to reach them. They then run in the direction that the storm is going, thinking erroneously that they can outrun the storm. When buffaloes see a storm coming, they charge directly into the storm and then continue in that direction as the storm moves in the opposite direction.
Both get wet but the buffalo for a far shorter period of time.
Many of my career counseling clients come to Career Counseling Connecticut after they have been the cow for too long. They could see the career storm coming. They know they are in a mismatched career or company or job. When the storm hits, whether it is a bad performance review or company downsizing or anxiety/depression from work, most were not surprised. They had been a little bit unhappy, then gradually unhappier, and then finally under the storm of whatever problem they now had.
If you are on this site, you likely have a career problem. Deal with it. It’s not going away by itself. Be the buffalo, not the cow.
