We’ve all seen the food pictures on social media, lots of them. Many people take their food pretty seriously. Some are known as picky eaters. Employers might be seriously picky, so how will you change your career?
It seems that there is about three percent making the difference between awesome and, “No thanks, I’ll pass.”
Chicken nuggets without any sauce, a birthday cake without any icing, “No thanks, I’ll pass.”
Tomatoes on my turkey and cheese submarine sandwich or buried under my bun on a Whopper from Burger King, “Nope, they have to go!”
What is the difference between delicious and terrible? I would suggest about three percent.
The same might be true for your career. You might want to consider what you have to do to be the special sauce or the icing on the cake. What do you need to remove or eliminate? What will change your career?
I believe that we sometimes overestimate on the big stuff and underestimate on the small. People work really hard on the big stuff. College degrees, fancy titles, getting in with the most predominate and reputable employers. Sure, those things might be important but the game changer might be in the three percent.
Here are a few things to consider:
It’s early in the morning but I’m already thinking about lunch.
I know I’m going to toss the tomatoes on my sandwich.
It will then be perfect.
