Job Search Zen – Part One: Perspective for an Oftentimes Hard Journey


Take out a white piece of paper.


What are your gifts?

What have you accomplished?

What is the work of your hands?

Place this on the paper.


This is the hardest thing.

There is help if you are stuck.

A counselor. Breathe.

Send your paper into the cloud.

Push and pull from the cloud.

Be with others. Sip coffee or tea.

Tell your story. Ask for theirs.

Notice everything around you.

It’s that simple and that hard.

Someone needs your gifts.

Know this. Breathe.
