A Twisted Question

What if you are really not that good at the one thing that anyone seems to want to hire you for in the first place. Kind of makes for quite a daunting task or a quandry, isn't it?

I know the feeling, Sparks. Same goes here. Even though my objective on my resume says that I want a "successful career change", all anyone seems to pay attention to is the banking experience. And that just sucks.

In my case, I hate doing the thing I'm good at, so I guess it's kind of the same feeling.

I think people who can make a living doing something they love are either lucky or smart - or both. Whatever it is, I'm neither.

Yeah, it sounds like a situation that is always going to cause stress, worry, disappointment. I have to echo anthony. There has to be something to the advice that the best job is one you enjoy going to each and every day.

People want to hire you to have sex? Cheers!!

If it makes you feel any better, I'm not good at anything.

So figure out what you want to do, while sucking at what you are doing. You're not superglued to the job.

Once again you're doing the cryptic thing... I'd say either practice practice practice - or maybe explor a new field. :-0

Maybe you are good at it, but really don't know it?

There's always McDonald's.

Maybe you are indeed good at that one thing, but you're such a perfectionist that you don't THINK you are. Could happen. Heck, the worsst Olympic-caliber pole vaulter thinks they're the worst, when in reality they're btter than 99.99% of the entire population of this earth at pole vaulting.

Does that make any sense at all?

You are a bright boy, and as they say practice makes perfect. Now if they hire you to do the one thing you totally LOATHE ...then you got problems!

Sparky Duck said...

In the end Starrlight is the most right, its all about doing something I loathe. Well, Annie is right too, but she has unfair knowledge

Who says you're not really good at it? Have you gotten feedback from a superior? Or is this just that voice in your head that doesn't always play on your side? Could it be that you're comparing your performance at this new job -- which is still a new job -- to how accomplished you were at your last one, after years and years?
