This week has been quite a rush.
I’ve been looking for all kinds of options that could benefit my entry into the job market. I let myself been caught up in the temp agencies pinwheel, sending CVs; forcing myself to believe that trying to quickly set up a proficient relationship with unknown employers would anyhow provide me faster with any kind of job.
I was insufficiently aware of the fact that my approach was almost useless.
8 steps to get what you want… without formal credential popped on my browser page every time I opened it. A Tim Ferriss tweet got me there, but it took me several days to actually read it, and I ended up wishing I had done it just on the spot.
I strive to constantly focus on the 80/20 principle. At day planning, nothing seems more powerful than to put my efforts in the task that if done would make everything else unnecessary. If I’m brave enough to seize my scariest todo, I’ll know that’s what has to be accomplished.
I feared the article would be the umpteenth promising piece of advice which I wouldn’t be able to stick to. Seth Godin’s straightforwardness helped me to overcome criticism about the post:
If you agree with every step of the argument, but the conclusion leaves you angry or uncomfortable, it might be time to reconsider your worldview, not reject the argument.
My new worldview? It’s totally worthy to try things out before judging them.
