It baffles me how many true faces of employees emerge during their notice period.
It stuns me how many friends become ashamed of their old friends, as they get new ones.
It shocks me how many people become their worst enemies when they have been defeated.

However, IF you act in a way that people can trust you, YOU ARE GOLD, MY FRIEND!

Show up, when people do not expect you to.
Be there for the friend, when everyone else has left.
Be there for the company, when everybody has moved on.
Be there for your parents, when you are busy in your life.
Be there for your partner, even at their worst.

And last of all, be there for yourself, even when you feel there is no reason to.

It is tragic that rough weather is precisely when most people abandon ship.
