Have you asked yourself this lately?
I for one have never got a job based on my CV. In fact I don’t think I’ve ever had a CV. Maybe I’m fortunate, I’ve never looked for a job, one always presented itself as the old one came to an end or had served its purpose.
For a lot of people their CV is hugely important, maybe you are one of them. But consider this for a moment.. .what are the key elements of a CV?
- Where you are at the moment
- Where you were before that
- What your education level was
I know it’s more involved than that but that’s basically it.
The thing is that is ALL about who you were. If you want to experience something new you have to think differently than you did before. You have to try on a new mindset. Try a new perspective. Otherwise you are just looking for more of what you have right now. And if you’re reading this you probably have some frustrations about your job, right?
So ask yourself: is getting a better version of your present job the answer?
If it is – Great! Sort your CV out asap. If not, you might want to think more about where you want your life to head over the next 5 – 10 years.
The right job or career for you could be in your very near future, but if you don’t identify it now, you’ll never recognise it when it comes along.
Put that work in right now and figure out what it is you’d love (or even like) to do.

Fed up being stuck in traffic going to work?
Have You Got Less Working Years Ahead Or Behind You?
I read a blog post by Stephen Edwards recently and this line in it inspired the question above: “The truth is I have probably lived more days than I’m going to live.“
Wow! That focuses the mind, right?
We’ve all heard of Peak Oil – it’s the point when we have burned more oil than is left in the ground, we’ve gone past the halfway mark – there’s less left than what we’ve used. Trouble is, we’re using it faster every day so it won’t last as long as we’ve been using it already.
This is much like life – it goes faster the more we live it. The older we get the quicker it goes! The big question is – what are you going to do with what’s left?
Nobody knows how much time they have, so let’s make each and every day a step towards who we really are and who we really want to be. Let’s show the world our unique selves, let’s offer the gift of ourselves to everyone.
If you’re a man of 38 or more, you’re probably halfway through your life – shocking right? The same if you’re a woman of 40 or more. I don’t say that to depress you but rather to spur you on to consider what you want the rest of your life to be like – work or otherwise.
And that is largely down to what you DO.
Every day is a new opportunity to change your mindset and change your life.
“All you have to do is decide what to do with the time that’s been given you.” ~ Gandalf (Lord of the Rings)
