Go For Exactly What You Want

Target your time on things you want to achieve.

  • Work in a place with minimal interruptions.
  • Seek out effective people and ideas.
  • Ask a friend or colleague for feedback.
  • Keep learning, follow your industry, stay sharp.
  • TIP: Work on a dynamite "Elevator Speech", so you can communicate your value to people in a very short time.

3: Target Your Effort

Applicant screening software may be all that's standing in the way between you and a job interview.

Companies need to hire and often say they can't find enough skilled people. Computers do much of the match making, and they are not creative. So, you need to think narrowly like a computer.
