Chapter 12: Job Search -- the Nuts and Bolts
Your Job Search: You Must Make Decisions and Take ActionIf you feel stuck, make the decision or take the action anyway; it's the best way to get unstuck.
...Yeah, because it's totally that easy.
But it helps to understand our motivations. Why are you doing this or that?
10/1/15: Three Good Things
- I have a Fitbit! I was paying a credit card I only still have because it's my oldest (as soon as my credit history allows, I'm closing it) , and saw that I have a ridiculous number of points. Now, the points are only good in the offiial "store" -- I can't get cash back or miles or really much of anything. I think I got a CD once, and by that I mean a Compact Disk, not a Certificate of Deposit (although, given the current interest rates, one's about a useful as the other...). Anyway! Seeing my ridiculous amount of points, I thought I'd skim the "store" and see what thy had -- and they had some fairly high-end fitness trackers. A little research later, and I have a Fitbit Charge HR. This didn't happen today, but I just happened to find it useful today, so I thought I'd mention it. This happened because I managed to combine two whims (get a fitness bracelet; check out my rewards points) into something useful.
- It's raining! Again, this didn't start today, but it's just so nice. It's cool, and it's sucking the humidity out of the air, and it's just a pleasant fall rainstorm. I'm trying not to be pessimistic and think about how this is probably the first salvo of a hurricane (you'll know the result of that before this goes live), so let's just enjoy it while it's good.
- Tea. I'm just enjoying a nice pot of tea. I bought some tea, but not a tin for it, so I'm trying to finish off a tin that's nearly empty so I can reuse it. Also, I just like tea.
