Recently, i came across this funny but profound article from Mike Rowe’s (Host of The Discovery Channel’s hit show, Dirty Jobs) reply to one of his fan whom been trying hard to look for the right job, but not the suitable job.
Look for Suitable Job, not the Right Job
And here some extract from his article and do read up at http://news.distractify.com/people/mike-rowe-crushes-a-mans-hopes-for-finding-a-dream-job-and-i-agree-with-him-100/?v=1 for the whole article that Mike Rowe on look for Suitable job, not the Right job.
“Stop looking for the “right” career, and start looking for a job. Any job. Forget about what you like. Focus on what’s available. Get yourself hired. Show up early. Stay late. Volunteer for the scut work. Become indispensable. You can always quit later, and be no worse off than you are today. But don’t waste another year looking for a career that doesn’t exist. And most of all, stop worrying about your happiness. Happiness does not come from a job. It comes from knowing what you truly value, and behaving in a way that’s consistent with those beliefs.“
Spend your time on the Suitable one
It is common to hear from friends, colleges or relatives, on looking for the Right partner, soul-mate, business partner, boss, career and etc. The list just go on and on. But such mindset/thinking just put up un-neccessary stress on oneself. You may just spend your lifetime just to look for the right one. For the same amount of time, energy and effort that you spend on searching for the Right one, you could have gotten back several Suitable one in various aspect of your life.
So let’s start replacing the word “Right” with “Suitable” in our daily Vocabulary! And start spending more time to look for the Suitable ones and on them!
