Recently I sent a message to some people to ask advice for my career path. I met them in Calgary, and it’s been four years since I left there, but they are still my mentors. They gave me some pieces of advice, and now it’s my turn. What should I start with?
Some of them told me like “to do this, you need to do that”. Now an optimistic side of me tells me “OK, I am a positive thinker. I can do this if I do that”. Then a realistic side of me tells me “no, you are not a positive thinker but only an optimist. You cannot do this because you have to do that”. Now a desperate side of me tells “OK, let’s do it and see how I fail”.
Today the recruiting agency sent me a contract form. I just need to sign it and send it back, then I will be a contract Japanese interpreter from next month. How close is it to my goal? If the goal is Calgary and I start from Hamilton, I will be in Montreal next month. Am I a looser? Apparently, yes.
Now, what should a looser do? Use any opportunity. If there is no opportunity, make opportunities. It’s up to me.
