Just read this in a career advice newsletter. Thought it was pretty interesting commentary.
Overprotective families tend to produce chickens; critical families can create vultures. Soft, sentimental families may produce pigeons that strut and coo, and who run for cover in the storms. Families to whom life is a party can produce sparrows who flit here and there chattering meaninglessly. But an Eagle family is different. It is exposed to wind and weather and sun. And yet there is a quiet confidence, a solidarity to stand against the current winds of fashion and popular trends.
