“The secret of success is the consistency to pursue.” — Harry F. Banks
Yesterday I spoke of endurance and that is the most important part of any longterm endeavor. You can have the best idea and most amazing technique in the world but if you cannot endure, you’ll give up at the first sign of hardship. But what about that technique and idea development? While you’re pushing through whatever trials you may face, consistently strengthen your knowledge base of how you can best navigate your journey. If you’re looking for a job, make sure you’re networking more than looking. Know that 80% of positions are not posted online so that greatly lessens your chances of getting one of the x,000 jobs the government lets us know are created every month. Know the importance of having your résumé proofread two or three times by different people. That one misplaced “m” could cost you tens of thousands of dollars. So, yes, do endure but while you’re doing that, consistently make yourself better.
