Day 58 - It might be wise to treat job security as an illusion

Job security does exist but it should always be treated as an illusion. While we all pay lip service to the important idea that uncertainty must be accepted and even embraced, relatively few people put this outlook into productive action. Constructing a war bunker might be an over correction, but installing a security system and sticking in food in the event of a natural disaster is a wise decision. Apply the same principle to your job. Have your resume ready and updated at all times and keep your eye on the job market. Apply for a few jobs here and there. Keep your name in circulation. Because in today’s world, a series of protests filled with white people telling indigenous people what their interests are can play a large role in derailing (pun intended) economic hopes.
