I’ve recently determined that working is kind of like hanging out in an ocean (bear with me here). It’s got its perks, no doubt – when the weather is nice, the sun is shining, and you want nothing more than to frolic around in saltwater sprays and waves, chilling with your coworkers, living the life. And then, on occasion, Mr. Sun hides himself behind clouds, the temperature drops, and the friendly waves become a lot faster and a lot more sinister. Suddenly, you’ve got to move.
