Or tunnel vision.
Take your pick — the problem is the same.
Let me know if this sounds like you or anyone you’ve heard:
“But I worked really hard on this” (after it got shredded)
“I sent out over 100 applications and got no call backs”
And then there’s this one I got last week from a jobseeker who is clearly anxious about trying to build a network on LinkedinThe majority of the time, content creators advocate network, be of value, and help others, but what I found is 99.2% of the US audiences don’t act. and that’s from a 300 outreach experiment.
Now here’s where it goes sideways though…
Activity ≠ productivity!
And it certainly doesn’t equal quality.
No matter what you’re doing, if you can do higher quality even if it means a lower volume of output, you’ll be in better shape.
Internal job applications
DIY hobby projects
It literally applies everywhere.
Try it and thank me later.
