The reasonable man adapts himself to the world. The unreasonable one persists in trying to adapt the world to himself. Therefore, all progress depends on the unreasonable man. (Shaw)
Here is how your job search would look as a reality TV show:
Episode 1: Fired? I’ll have another job before I’m out the door, you slug.
Episode 2: If I call 3 of my friends, I’ll have two job offers by the end of today.
Episode 3: I better file for unemployment comp. This may take a week or two.
Episode 4: After “Survivor” I’ll try to send out a resume on “Monster”.
Episode 5: Will the sun ever shine again? Why don’t the stars twinkle anymore?
Episode 6: The capitalist military industrial complex corrupts and destroys all the slaves forced to toil therein.
Episode 7: My dog still loves me. That’s a start.
Episode 8: I can have the job? Really?? The pay is low, but I’ll prove you made a great decision!
Something To Do Today
The real job search progression includes:
- getting mad,
- reconciling with reality,
- not knowing what to do next,
- getting depressed,
- realizing your self worth,
- and finding a job.
It’s natural. Where are you at?
