FOR LOVE: SHOULD YOU QUIT A JOB FOR YOUR SIGNIFICANT OTHER

Related image

“Which one means more to you?”


for the one you love

Here is the question for today, and that is would you choose a significant other over your career? A lot of people in today’s society would say that this is something that is a big mistake. But if you talk to people from a different generation they might say otherwise. And the reason for this change in society today would have to be because no one want to depend on the next person for anything. And also, there is the idea that what if the relationship does not work itself out. Then you are stuck thinking in your mind why didn’t I take that opportunity that came my way that was turned down prior.

bad decisions

Just understand something people about giving up your career for someone you love. Things have been known to happen, and the problem with this is that you’re stuck in a bad situation. So let it be known that you have to have a backup plan before you decide to give up opportunities. Because people tend to change over time and you don’t want that regret thought in your mind. On the hand, it could workout for you in the end. You could actually find someone that might make you feel a certain way that it’s worth it.

make the move, drop the career

It can hurt some people, but staying for someone and leaving the gig could prove to be beneficial if the person is worth it. Some people might call you crazy for choosing a person over the career, and yes, it is dice, but if it works out, it could be better than the gig. For those that don’t have great relationships, they may encourage otherwise. You just have to do hat is in your best interest not other people looking to get involved.

OVERQUALIFIED: WHAT DOES IT REALLY MEAN?

Image result for overqualify

“You have too much going on.”


a full résumé

Ever take a long look at your resume and thought to yourself, “I might be overqualified for the job I am seeking to attain. Some people don’t have a job at all, but are seeking employment. They are individuals that are willing to take the gig to hold them over until they find something else. Only problem with that is the employer is looking for someone with entry skills. I used to always think it was for reasons like the organization does not want to pay you what you are worth. And to a degree, there is reality there. But if you are applying for a job that you need and not really one that benefits your qualifications, then it could prove to hurt you once you do get that job that matches your qualifications.

don’t include everything

Whenever you decide to put together a resume, you need to understand something. You should not include everything you do. Because people may look at it, and think twice. You need a job, then you should put what is needed, but then you should also keep in mind that if there is too much it could hurt you. So just keep it in mind when you are compiling information.

throwing your hands up

When you are working a job where you are overqualified, then what you’re dealing with is dissatisfaction. Because the job will not only be a lack of a challenge, you’re also going to have no real ability to climb. Jobs where you can not really climb, you will start to resent it. Then you will throw your hands up and not have much motivation to do much of anything. So sometimes in need of a job, you will have to pass to keep from hating your job later. You will have a check, but resent the move.

GENDER IN THE WORKPLACE: HOW TO BEHAVE IN A COED ENVIRONMENT

Four People Touching Hands

“Mind your manners.”


manners people

When you are working in an office space or any other workplace, you should be cautious of how you communicate with your fellow employees. Especially if the employees are of the opposite gender. And if you are male, you should really watch yourself because it is so easy to find yourself in trouble when harmless fun goes too far. So be mindful of how you behave so you don’t find yourself in the middle of a human resource nightmare. So, what are some things you might want to watch out for as you move your way through the daily workplace?

touchy feely

I have come into the workplace and given people hugs. Then you think to yourself, could this be something that comes up later on, on the job. It’s sad to say this, but in our time period today, you have to be careful that you don’t lose your job or more, go to jail. But why, why should I risk going to jail? And the reason being is that you never know people’s threshold for comfort. Now, mot people get to know you, and then they are more comfortable to hug. But even people who know each other can sometimes make each other feel uncomfortable.

watch your words

When you are talking to someone in the workplace, make sure you know that you might get to know people quite intimately, but it’s still work. And the things you say, even to your coworkers off the clock is still part of the job. So you have a conversation about sex off the the job, but you’re in a sensitive space because you still see this person. And you might say something that could trigger them to not want to work with you anymore. Now you’re stuck because you need your job. So adhere to the things you say.

dating is a no no

These are the people you tend to be around a lot so it comes as no surprise relationships start. But if you want my advice, don’t do it. You should not be dating people who work alongside. It can cause problems if the date becomes something that shouldn’t have happened. Imagine dating someone you work with and have to see them everyday after a breakup. The professional environment can prove to be place of conflict.

NOT THERE YET: HOW TO DEAL WITH NOT BEING WHERE YOU WANT TO BE

“In the paradigm we feel failed.”


where am i at the moment

Ever get the feeling that you should be further in your career than you are at the moment? There is something holding you back and you can’t seem to get where you want to be. This is a feeling that so many people deal with on a daily basis. Trying to figure out why their lives are not in better places. And the biggest mistake we make a lot of times is comparing ourselves to the lives that other people have. The reality is, you shouldn’t want the lives others have, fight for the one you want instead. But it’s hard especially when you are young to grasp this concept. Because no matter your age, there is someone bigger than you in your position at your young age. And you must learn that when they are young, this an exception to the rule and not the standard.

not putting in enough

Work those mental muscles and stretch your mind further than you are stretching it now. This is something that takes a lot of time to master. And when I say time, I mean years of work. I am pursuing a career as an author/screenwriter. You have to know that this is a lifetime journey of ups and downs. If you want to be successful overnight then you’re going to have a problem. Because you hear nothing comes overnight, and that is true. It’s a cliche, yet the time put in means trying to make sense of the world around you so as to tell a story no one has told before. OR it could mean writing a similar story, but from a different point of view.

seeing the less talented prevail

There are the groups of people who slip through the cracks and become over the top successful without putting in much work. We look at them and can’t for the life us figure out why they have a platform. And should they or shouldn’t they is up for debate. But what I will say is this, most people who slip through the cracks don’t sustain over the long haul. They eventually fall off because they have never had to build through the adversity. Meaning we all have some point where we fall and have to get up. This is where they don’t get up because they never had to go through the bullshit. So they get stuck and enough time goes by where we think to ourselves where they went.

WORK FOR FUN: TURNING YOUR FUN INTO CAREER

Jumpshot Photography of Woman in White and Yellow Dress Near Body of Water

“Make it a vacation.”


my work is my fun

We all have these visions of this dream job that involves us working and living everyday like it’s your last. Having this great career that means you get paid to have your fun. But the reality is, very few people will ever get their dream job. The majority of people will never be able to experience that jittery night before Sunday going into the next week. They will experience I can’t wait until Friday feeling so I can get out of here feeling. And that is no way to live, but it’s a realization for so many. So how do you land that dream job so can do what you love instead of what you have to do?

time energy money

You want that dream job, but the only thing that is holding you back is what? Nothing really, unless you want to factor in the lack of confidence. For starters, the time it takes to put into a career, so many people are afraid of failing. So what they do is live their lives not ever pursuing because of the fear. The fear of putting a lot time into something and it not working. Then there is the energy on top of the time. We have to accept our reality while working a dream. And that means time on top of time, with working a day and pursuing at night. But wait a minute, then there is the money it takes. And I don’t mean rich, I mean not having a relationship or not hanging with friends. Why, so that all your pennies go toward what you want over time.

taking opportunities when they come

Not every opportunity come sin the form in which you want it. Sometimes it comes in the form of cashless services. But who in their right mind want to work for free. But there are times where no pay or low pay have provided people  with the ground work of doing so much in their lives. For me, it’s buying a camera with my own money and small equipment as well as making my own short films. This is the start for my career as a filmmaker, photographer, and author. Take the risk yourself early on, and then people will be willing to work with you.

THEY MADE IT AND SO CAN YOU: HOW IT WAS DONE IN WORSE TIMES

Man With Hand on Temple Looking at Laptop

“The grind has yo frustrated.”


the come up is real

As you will begin to grow your career, you will run into a lot of doubts along the way. And reasons for this is because you don’t have the experience to deal with the adversity. But understand that you are not alone. Anyone that has been in you position or looked like you has had to endure the same struggle. And if hey made it through, you will as well. In a world where everything is instant, you can’t understand that, but it’s true. And what’s sad is there will be even less people in future successful than the past because we compare to others and get down on ourselves. We have to allow ourselves a period to fall and then get up.

everything is lost in a paradigm

While we are in the building stage everything seems to be a failure and not working. Today, I have not gotten much done because the greater portion of the day I have been a little less motivated. But I have managed to punch out some type of post for today’s topic. And that is how it is some days. Others days you’re rocking and rolling, but then you have the moments you have nothing to give. But since starting my blog I have close to 1,000 posts. So, in the paradigm there is nothing, but when you look at the overall big picture, there is a lot. So stop looking at the now, and look for years down the line.

learn from the down times

Take the time for when you are stuck in life to reflect on the point up to now. You have to look at life and think to yourself, how good is your life as oppose to the past. If you’re in a better space to whatever degree than the past you are making progress. And don’t worry, there are plenty of people who have been in your place and are in your place. You are not some special case, or require an accommodation.
