Do you know what my new phrase for this economy? Is it: "Beg For That Job"? No. "Ask Your Friends For Connections"? No.
It's a bit more simple than that. Simply put, it's:
"GET OFF YOUR ASS."
I know — a little blunt — a little in your face. But spot on.
In economic times like these we all have ample opportunities to grow. To take advantage of the upheaval in our marketplace. Up is Down. Down is Up.
I always say: "There are people who make things happen. There are people who watch what happened. And there are people who wonder WHAT HAPPENED!"
Which one will you be today? Take charge of your life:
- Take a risk at work. Ask to be on that new project. Present your new ideas to your boss.
- If you're unemployed, take a chance, call a CEO at a company that you really want to work for and set up a lunch with him.
Don't wait for a better time or when you will have more information. As I also say. "We must not let the perfect be the enemy of the good." Don't wait for perfection - Do it now.
Bottom line — Step out of your comfort zone and MAKE IT HAPPEN.
