Judging from all the headlines, Facebook posts and tweets 2016 has been a pretty rough year. But rather than reflect on all the gory details, let’s look onward to 2017
with the promise and hope that we’ll be able to turn things around in a new year. That said, hope alone cannot change things. It can’t change who we are and it can’t change how we are. If we want to change we must take action. And in order to take action we need to be inspired.
While inspiration comes from many places, today we turn to the Holstee Manifesto. Much
greater than a mission statement, the Manifesto was created by three founders of a t-shirt company who not only wanted to put their definition of success and happiness in print, but wanted to share their positive intentions with the world.
It’s a highly relevant piece of work that can be applied to almost anything in your life, especially to your pursuit for a new job. It begins like this:
This is your life. Do what you love, and do it often. If you don’t like something, change it. If you don’t like your job, quit. If you don’t have enough time, stop watching TV.
You can read the rest here. While we all have our own individual hopes, goals, wants, and dreams, we all share the same need for work. Work creates our livelihood. It ensures our well-being. No matter what goes on in the world around us, the one thing we can control is how we choose to spend our time working.
Here’s to a happy and successful New Year. We look forward to helping you find your #NewJob2017. Search, apply, and prosper!
