What have people learned from getting fired?
Mediocre people get fired, well, because they are mediocre.
But great, truly epically, great people also get fired.
They get fired because they picked the wrong boss. A boss who was threatened by them. A boss that was an anti-mentor. A boss that wouldn’t help them achieve their goals.
Pick the right opportunity, yes, but not with the wrong boss. Take a slightly worse opportunity with a boss that can take you to the next level.
