Happy Tuesday.

You know what makes me sad?

Podcast video titles.

Lemme tell ya why.

I have a podcast for you today. It’s a beauty (I think).

I needed to attach a title to it because that’s a law in podcastland.

I really wish I had unlimited characters and could give you a full brief about what’s in store for you when you click that link.

The title I chose was Job Search Obstacles Preventing You from Success.

It is accurate. Technically.

What I share is an obstacle that prevents you from getting everything you want out of your job search.

What I really wanted to title it was…

Andy’s Surefire Method to Show You How Awesome You Are and How Much Meaning Your Life Has and How If You Look at the World This Way You Will Never Have a Sad Day for the Rest of Your Life.

That’s really what the video is about.

Yes, I have a fabulous story about job searching and Susan and how I transformed her interpretation of an assignment she had developing a spreadsheet.

To her, she thought her work activity sounded mundane.

To me, it sounded like she did something important that helped (literally) thousands of music artists get accurately paid (literally again) millions of dollars they were not properly receiving on time or at all.

Not to be fussy, but I liked my interpretation a wee bit better.

Maybe you walk through life this way…thinking you don’t matter much?

Or, thinking what you do doesn’t matter much?

Here, please try on my sweet rose-colored glasses so you can see what I see…

“An object in motion is easier to redirect than a stationary one.”

I’m sure I made up that quote sometime in my teens during one of my endless semesters of physics.

I’m sure I’m not the first person to have that thought.

I’m also sure it’s the end of the year.

That means many job-seekers are either tired of searching or hesitating or reluctant to get moving until the new year.

I just can’t have that, so I want to continue my little run of job-search-motivation to help with your momentum.

Today, I’m serving up an analogy from my life to help you get charged, maintain your focus, not worry about the future, and a bunch of other really cool messages I managed to stuff into 309 seconds.

For the rest of your life, remember…

When you’re doing something, focus on the shout.

When you’re reflecting, focus on the echo.

When you make a mistake, make it an error of commission not omission.

And, for the love of all that is holy, whenever you’re not sure, hit the damn send button and sort it out later.

It’s really the “sorting” you’re working for…

I know job searching stinks.

But, it’s a gift.

You don’t need to agree with me at this moment.

I know, however, someday, you will look back and know exactly why it had to happen THAT way.

Until you know the answer to that previous statement, I have something to tide you over.

It’s a life lesson, job searching, and a bunch of other things all rolled into 8 minutes and 6 seconds—all aimed at helping you avoid fatigue and gain the benefits from this experience.

The process I’m sharing with you today changed my life.

It helps me to enjoy every single day.

I hope it’s magical for you too…
