This week, I heard something I had to take note of: crashing the party beats waiting to be on the guest list.
It’s easy to forget that. It’s easy to think we have to wait for an invitation—that we can’t do what we love until that invitation comes.
But that’s not true.
Don’t wait around for someone to respond. Be the person who follows up. Don’t wait for a great opportunity to magically appear. Create a digital paper trail of work so opportunities come knocking on your door.
This makes starting a great career a whole lot more fun—and rewarding.
P.S. I heard that advice (and more) on this week’s episode of Career Crashers. Isaac interviewed James Beshara, and James shares his story of crashing his career. Give it a listen here!
