- “Do or do not… there is no try.” — Yoda
To be effective in life and in work, you need to go for it and never second-guess yourself. Don’t just try to get a new job, change careers, ask for the salary you deserve or ask somebody to recommend you for a position. Commit fully.
- “Never tell me the odds.” — Han Solo
If you’re truly devoted to a particular job or career, don’t let the odds stand in your way. Anybody who has ever achieved anything of value went for it, despite the odds.
- “You will find that many of the truths we cling to depend greatly on our own point of view.” — Obi-Wan Kenobi
Stay open-minded in your job search. Consider jobs that aren’t immediately obvious. Regularly reconsider your goals to ensure they’re still compatible with your skills and desires.
