I’ve been on a journey of self-exploration for several months now. And during that journey I’ve discovered a few things, and become frustrated, and I’ve run in circles trying to “figure it out” like some math problem that I can’t solve.
I realized I’ve been focusing on the wrong question – What do I want to be when I grow up?
Instead, it’s so much more about my own development. It’s about self-improvement, step by step. So now, I’m asking the question, would I hire myself? Would I want to work with me? Why or why not?
Because, at the end of the day, it’s not about your company name or your title or even the industry you work in. It’s about your life. I’ve always heard from employers that it’s so much more about working with people who are smart, who are willing to work hard, who are flexible and fun to be around.
Would you hire yourself?
