You've planned out your career course. You've got an idea of where you are and where you want to go. Spreadsheets and notes and documents and dog-eared books mark the way to your future.
That planned career course gets interrupted. You move. You change jobs. The economy is ruined by stupid and greedy people. Your plan is temporarily derailed, perhaps horribly so.
Of course once it's derailed, you get right back on your career plan. You're no quitter, you won't stop, you won't give up.
Have you ever considered the fact maybe you should?
