You got to own it – whatever you do, wherever you do – own it.
It’s your job, it’s your work – whether you like it or not. No one cares.
There must be a reason – you may not get it now – but trust me just give your best shot.
I call it being ‘Dutiful’!
No, it is not preparing for something better. Consider yourself lucky to have had this job. And with that mindset get yourself dirty – do your job at hand and just forget the rest.
You will get paid as you deserve.
Go. Give your best now.
“First you jump off the cliff and,
you build wings on the way down”
– Ray Bradbury, famous Science-fiction author
You would agree that most of the life is on the job training.
Quit waiting until you are perfectly ready. You never will be.
You had to learn as you go. You too have to begin wherever you are to go to where you want to be.
Start the journey now.
There are those who are born geniuses and those who think they are!
And other hand, there are people like us, mortals, who want to go forward in life with the limited ‘talent’ set we have!
Welcome to the fine art of repetition!
Though I have been applying it myself quite a number of time (e.x., I have 5 different blogs and stuck to one at least for now; Re-drafted a project plan 6 different times, and the list goes on).
Keep on repeating until who you bored yourself to not knowing what to do next.
Try and try again – know that there is no milestone for failure here.
Once you have done with the exercise, you know that you have reached a fantastic level of refinement which would have otherwise gone undiscovered.
So next time, if you are in search for the inner genius within you – remember the mantra – repeat again!
“You Are a Genius If a genius is someone with exceptional abilities and the insight to find the not so obvious solution to a problem, you don’t need to win a Nobel Prize to be one. A genius looks at something that others are stuck on and gets the world unstuck. So the question is: Have you ever done that? …”
– Seth Godin, from Linchpin
Stay low, I mean it – you should stay low.
Don’t invite attention.
99% of success is doing!
It is not planning, not preparing, but showing up and doing.
