Gratitude

Little things matter BIG!

My library book haul this weekend is all about the little things. Daily decisions, little moments and even small, mundane choices. I'm learning the small stuff matters. They make an impact in life and in resume writing.

Magical little life things:

+ Playing board games with my son on sick days.

+ Exchanging secrets with my daughter at bedtime.

+ A lit candle and music playing during dinner prep.

Small resume touches:

+ Periods at the end of bullet points to tie a bow on a high-impact statement.

+ A clean, custom LinkedIn URL (instead of the gobbly-gook link provided).

+ Bolding a professional accomplishment to make it pop.

+ Sharp, distinct action verbs.

What small things are making a difference in your life or your job search right now?

❣️Look in the past. I’ve had jobs that I would never want to re-live again, but I can look back and be grateful for the skills I developed and how the role contributed to my overall professional development. What are you grateful for in your career past?

❣️Look at the present. Perhaps your work environment is a bit volatile or your gig is getting old. See with new eyes today. Look for a few things that you can be thankful for. Maybe it’s just the office (insert name brand) coffee or perhaps you are celebrating big career win - either way, note it.

❣️Look to the future. Recall your career dreams. What do you hope for? What seems too ‘crazy’ to pursue? Move one step forward in pursuing your dreams today. Then do it again tomorrow and then the next day. Success is achieved through small wins. Take a step.

What gets you giddy about your career?
