The other day I stumbled upon this great read that I can’t get out of my head so I thought I’d share it with you today.
In this piece, Seth Godin talks about the craft of picking the right path in your career/work. He compares 'it' to an endless series of difficult but achievable hills that are sometimes overwhelming, for some we are simply too foolish or not ready yet and there are those that challenge us most, but oh boy, they feel great when we achieve them.
It’s a concept that I really respond to as I am more of the visual type - if that makes sense. I’m all about the process and enjoying each step as it comes and those two quotes below totally sum up the way I approach that little thing called career and a great reminder for those low moments we all have sometimes. It’s good to fail sometimes, we are all human - there is always a new day, new hill to climb and a new path to be discovered. Let’s not forget that!
'Lightning rarely strikes. Instead, achievement is often the result of stepwise progress, of doing something increasingly difficult until you get the result you seek.'
'The craft of your career comes in picking the right hills. Hills just challenging enough that you can barely make it over. A series of hills becomes a mountain, and a series of mountains is a career.'
Lovelies, are you happy with your work-path right now? Thinking about doing something different, something new? What would be your dream career? Btw: What do you do now? xo
P.S: Also, your anti-stress hero.
P.P.S: Plus, the 10,000 hours to become successful at any given task.
