Thunder is loud, scary and often deadly. In business there are people both in the game and those you work with who are like thunder and you had better be careful or you could get hurt or worse. I have learned to stay away from thunder and the people who are like it.
You have no doubt heard the expression smooth sailing. I have never sailed but that is what I want in life: easy, direct and flowing freely. So when given the choice, I avoid thunder and go for the boat.
