Flooding has been in the news as of late; serious flooding in eastern Canada and parts of Australia. More than a few bridges have been washed away. It will take years to recover and rebuild.
When it comes to your career, you have a choice. You can stand on the river bank and bemoan the fact that a bridge is missing, and that nobody seems to feel inclined to build one for you, or you can get busy and try to build one yourself.
This may not appear to be the best illustration because the task seems impossible on your own. Then again, that could be part of the point. Robin Williams once said, “No man is an island, but some are peninsulas.” But cutting yourself off from others, and failing to seeking appropriate assistance, is not a good idea.
Getting where you need to go will require taking the initiative and enlisting the expertise of others.
