Oh well...

A Great Exercise to Find the Job in You

Take 5-10 minutes to write out a list of ways you can pay forward the good in your life. This could be giving money, spending time with the elderly; or as simple as holding the door open for a stranger or sending positive thoughts to someone that is ill.

Why do this?

"Giving seems a strange way of finding a job," you might say.

But what you'll learn is that helping others is the key to a successful career...be it a waiter at Primo or a systems analyst for TD Bank...you have to give to get.

"You can close more business in two months by becoming interested in other people than you can in two years by trying to get people interested in you."
