You’re toast, pal.

One day you will get fired.  A round of layoffs.  A client who didn’t fully appreciate you or your staggering genius.  A brawl between you and your boss.  There are a million possibilities and most of them come as no surprise.  So what, in other words.  By getting canned, you’re now part of an elite cadre, you’ve earned your wings, and you’ll have a good story to compare with others who’ve been in your shoes.   Suck it up, move along, and recognize that you’ve been granted the chance to change, to do something different.  Half the people I know and half the ones I’ve hired have been canned somewhere along the way.  Welcome to the club, pro.
