I realized I was being set up to be fired by my employer in July of 2020 and at the same time I realized that God exists and that he was watching over me. I prayed about what to do next, how do I get through this? I had picked up the book ‘The Black Swan: The Impact of the Highly Improbable’ at Barnes and Noble the day before. As I started reading in the introduction I came across this passage:
“I discovered that it is much more effective to act like a nice guy and be “reasonable” if you prove willing to go beyond just verbiage. You can afford to be compassionate, lax, and courteous if, once in a while, when it is least expected of you, but completely justified, you sue someone, or savage an enemy, just to show that you can walk the walk.”
Nassim Nicholas Taleb
I went to Mr. Connecticut to try to get him to stop what he was doing. I wanted to talk sense into him, but he denied any knowledge of wrongdoing. They continued to scheme to get me fired. I had no other choice but to go to Ethics.
The guidance I received then is still relevant now.
Oh, and I’m staying.
Thanks for reading.
