The most important thing in securing a job is to produce an attractive CV. Writing a good CV is an art one has to learn. How to write a good CV that could impress your would be employer? This is what this article is all about. I will give you 10 important points on writing a good CV
What if you didn’t have to come up with the “perfect” business idea, or find the “perfect” intersection between what you love to do and what people want?
When you really look at what’s going on, the concept of passion or purpose is something you’ve learned.
You have an idea in your head of what it’s supposed to be like. You have expectations, and when those expectations aren’t met, you’re unhappy.
But what if you focused on following your excitement and heart from moment to moment.
You would still attend to the practical matters of life.
You would still have challenges, but you would no longer be weighed down by “not having found your passion.”
Passion comes down to doing what you enjoy right now.
It doesn’t have to set your hair on fire. It doesn’t have to be complicated. It starts right now by doing what interests you.
It’s starts with one tiny step. That step could be as simple as going for a walk, writing in your journal or playing guitar.
You will want to complicate it, but you don’t have to.
