I attended a job search / career workshop today and was able to come away with a tip that wasn’t part of the workshop material.
It came from the instructor without her even knowing it.
The instructor announced that after taking some basic information from each of us, she would be dismissing the class due to the fact that she wasn’t feeling well. Not a problem. This happens to us all.
What happened next was the inspiration for this post.
The instructor must have had a shot of adrenalin. She persevered and pushed through the malaise and continued to present some of the information in the workshop manual, saying “We might as well get as much of this done as we can today.”
This is notable because as I have said, we all have bad days. This instructor found the strength to push herself through the difficulty and get even more accomplished than even she herself thought was possible. It wasn’t much, but it was a lesson I hope all of us in attendance were able to recognize and use.
