Good things at work. It's a zoo.
My week at work is kind of like this.
I prefer to think of them like this.
In the wild... there are Cattle...
And there are Buffalo (Bison).
They live in the same or similar environment.
When a storm comes upon them, Cattle run away from the storm. The storm eventually overtakes them. They are running in the same direction as the storm, so the time spent in the storm is longer than if they were standing still. When the storm passes, they stop, look around and try to figure out how to get back to where they were, but they were in the storm for so long that they end up wandering around for a while before they settle in and start up wherever they are. Then cowboys need to go round them up and bring them home.
Buffalo on the other hand run towards the storm. This is uncomfortable to the buffalo and everyone with the buffalo. However, they can fix their eyes on a destination, running towards it, while the storm arrives. The storm lasts less time than if they were standing still and at the end, if the buffalo want to turn around and go back where they came from, they can. Remember, they were able to pick a destination on the other side of the storm and get to it.
Thanks to my co-worker Jenn for telling me the story of the Buffalo!
Good things? Well, of course they are good things!
