I've been getting up at 7AM everyday for the last week. (I know that’s not a big deal but I don’t go into the office until 10AM, so….)
And as of last night I can officially say: HOLY SHIT, I TURNED THE #ENTRYLEVELBOSS BOOK PROPOSAL IN SO THAT MY AGENT TEAM CAN READ IT AND SELL IT AND WOW, WOW, WOW, WOW, WOW I DID THAT.
Click to watch the 7-minute video that I made at 8PM last night, sitting in the lobby of my day job office, in a complete daze after pressing send on that email.
In the video, I talk about how writing this book proposal has reinvigorated me to make sure I am helping you get hired, into a job you actually like, as quickly as is humanly possible. I also talk about the challenges I'm facing with delayed gratification–a set of challenges that you're probably also facing in your job search right now.
It can be hard to self-motivate. It's so hard to wake up and send in the application, put together the next resume, make the next networking connection–and do it all with good faith, hoping that it's going to pay off in dividends next week or the week after or the week after that.
For today, I just want to share this success with you. I am so proud of myself. And I believe you need to pause and stare those moments in the face when they happen.
I'm going to write to you again this weekend, OK? We're going to talk about how I can help you really speed up your job search, and soon.
Always, always, always rooting for you. Rooting for me, too.
