I seldom post "Inspirational Quotes" and this isn't one of them. This one caught me thinking... The Bird represents You, and the Branch, Your Company. Are you counting on your company to support you? Or are you so sure of your marketability, skills and reputation that if the branch comes crashing down, you are not going to go crashing along with it, but rather fly off to yet another tree? Are your wings strong enough to fly to another branch, or have you grown so fat and comfy resting on that branch that you've forgotten how to even fly? Never assume that branch will last forever. Be Career Agile, not Career Fragile.
