Stop telling employers about your skills. Start telling them where you can bring value.
Of course the value you bring is related to some of your skills, but also to your ability and your will to put them to good use. So look at the problems you can solve and how that improves people’s lives. Brag about that, not about your skills!
I’m plannig to have a blog for a long time. The problem is that I’m not a good blogger!
Today I understood why: it’s because I’ve never blogged!! How can I become a good blogger without actually doing it? If I just wait for my skill to come, it will never come!
Wow! This means today it’s going to be different. Today it’s time to write!
The next days will be different as well. I’m going to try things I want to become good at! It’s not going ot be easy. I’ll need to overcome the embarrassment for my noob attempts. But that’s what it takes to get there. There’s no other way!
This journey is to incredible not to share it.
I’m on my way to becoming an entrepreneur. On my way I’m also becoming a better partner, a better friend, a better son, a better employee… what the hell – a better human being in most of its roles.
