Who says just a few short words can't change our lives? Or change our careers. Though, I'm very much still seeking to apply them, these 8 have changed mine.
Sadly, except for a few of them, I have forgotten who shared these pieces of wisdom with me. So, if you were the one who shared this with me, I apologize... However, know you've affected my life deeply and maybe even many others.
CAUTION: You won't be able to apply all of these pithy proverbs today... or even in the next few months.
However, pick just one (maybe two of these) Write it somewhere you can see it. See where it takes you!! I dare ya!
Read these slowly, and thoughtfully, OK.
In other words, yes, you're an odd bird with something unusual to offer the world. Be that odd bird and live into your 'odd-birdedness" Say "yes" to that.
For the perfectionists among us, this is SO, SO hard. We find it hard to put things out there that might not be perfection. Maybe afraid we might get... criticized. (Oh, horrors!)
The gist is to JUST DO SOMETHING. Take imperfect action soon. Then perfect it and make it better. Experiment. Maybe share a few typos. : ) (Sorry if you're a typo-hating fiend, or as Michael Hyatt calls you, "Grammar and Typo-Nazis.")
A corollary of this is, "Few things are created and perfected at the same time." So create - and let it be imperfect, then improve it.
Corollary: Find your direction and a vision that really matters, then stick with it..... Time and truth go hand in hand. But, be patient. It's OK to start small.
That one speaks for itself! But don't we lOVE working with people and companies who work this way?
This is for all of us who actually believed that college or even grad school prepared us "for the rest of our lives."
If you don't invest in your own growth, no one else will.
This is a life-changing question. Scary. Yes, that too.
This relates to the question before, but brings it right down to today!
Imagine what might happen if your career operated in that fashion?? Might just change the world and enjoy the ride a lot more, huh?
How about you? Do you have any great pieces of advice that have changed your career? ,
