Logic Of The Day: 12.04.2019.
We all want to work toward something that we’re passionate about and genuinely enjoy. However, steep competition and high expectations can cause a few bumps in the road.
In these cases, it’s important to avoid getting discouraged and start looking long-term.
“It’s okay to take jobs that aren’t your calling or passion,” says Dr. Goeglein. “Just make sure that there’s a goal associated with it.”
For instance, perhaps you’re looking to become a lobbyist. However, the job openings all require much more experience than you have.
Rather than getting frustrated, start taking baby steps. Try exploring smaller roles at a political campaign or non-profit, and eventually work your way up the totem pole.
A temporary separation from your passion won’t set you back, as long as you keep your long-term goal top-of-mind.
