Career Calling

Good Career Advice from Abraham Lincoln

 

I love this quotation from Lincoln:  “Leave nothing for tomorrow which can be done today.”  The worst enemy in a job search or career change is inaction.  Whenever you tell yourself that you’ll do it tomorrow, ask this question:  “What’s stopping me from doing it today?”  If you have a good reason for delaying action, then you should wait for tomorrow.  However, if you keep putting off what you should do today, that will limit your opportunities to find a job.  Set written goals and note when you are delaying action.  If “I’ll do it tomorrow” is a habit, it’s one you will need to break to be successful.
