On the Zone of Expendability?
…while in the past the safest move was to keep your head down and stay off any radars… being a good little trooper… that’s no longer any more likely to help you keep your job. If you’re on nobody’s radar, you’ve probably got nobody defending you like a tiger to their boss. In either case, the freedom to push for what you believe in, and to challenge the status quo is a lot more stimulating than deciding to just not care.
If everyone is a lot more expendable today, and we ALL are “short-timers” whether we know it or not, we might as well act like short-timers by taking the risks we were too afraid to make before. It probably won’t make us any less at risk, and today… it might even make us safer.
