How to Be ‘Inspireful’

Art by the inspirational Hugh MacLeod

Life is incredibly short, and the countdown clock is always ticking. Our time and the focus of our efforts are the crown jewels of our individual kingdoms. We owe it to ourselves not to squander them on passionless pursuits or unworthy bosses. Launch your project. Write your book. Start your side business. Create the work of art you’ve always dreamed of creating. Ignore the haters, break the rules, and buck the system. You’ll be glad you did and the world will be a better place.

“Do you have any advice for me, as I’m about to finish college this summer and looking to enter the workforce? I’m hoping to translate intelligence analyst into business operations analyst type positions. I have a solid resume, and I honestly think I will be fine if I can get into an interview, but that’s its own hurdle. I also don’t want to undervalue myself by applying for a job below my level of experience. Thanks in advance for any advice or words of encouragement you could provide!” – “Joe”
