Cats make pathetic dogs


Some companies proudly publicize that "our organization only hires the best people." In most cases, that actually means that only people with certain psychological characteristics are hired. Standardizing people is a poor business approach. In relationships, it is a recipe for disaster.

Dogs are mostly friendly beasts. Lots of people like dogs. Companies love to hire dog-minded people. Dogs
can be messy at times, but they are not trouble-makers. Dogs are predictable. On the other hand, they show little initiative and drive. Grown-up dogs possess little curiosity.

When I was a young cat, I frequently tried to pass myself off as a dog. I would put on a dog's suit and go for interviews to dog's jobs. When asked questions, I strived to give only good dog's answers.

From time to time, I even got hired as a dog, but for some reason, I was not able to keep the job for long. I tried hard and did my best. Nevertheless, I must confess what a poor dog I made.

At some point, I found out, there was also a place for cats. I went there, I looked around, and was amazed to see that there were plenty of people like me.

Trouble-makers with initiative, don't you bother to pretend that your ideas have an end. Take your time to place yourself in the world that you deserve.
