New Realisation is there anyone who can relate?

Postby WarWeasel » Wed Apr 18, 2018 1:02 am

Been a while since I posted here nice to say things have been good, still no job yet.

This is where it gets tricky, I don’t want a standard job, I really don’t feel like it would be best for me, one job day in and day out. I like change often, and each week I’m heavily into something new.

And I think that’s what I want to do, not one same old job, but have different jobs to focus on, like currently I’m devoting my time to my new YouTube channel, as well as focusing on other hobbies, and stuff I could potentially see myself doing.

But I wouldn’t want to do one of those jobs on repeat, have something else there to switch up the day. Keep it interesting, can anyone else relate? :?

Sure. I can relate. I think most people can.

But, let me ask you a few questions. Do you enjoy a half-ass tasting cake? Would you want to be operated on by a part-time surgeon? Do you want to learn something on YouTube from a part-time teacher? Do you enjoy spending money on sub-standard good and services?

No. I bet you don’t. Neither do I. Neither do most people.

Instead, we seek out professionals that are good at what they do. We seek out masters in a trade, not a jack of all trades. We seek out the highest quality for what we can afford.

If you pursue a little of this and a little of that, you will end up being the part-time, sub-standard provider of many things that no one wants. It won’t pay the bills and it won’t give you any long term satisfaction. All you will receive is negative feedback at worst, and neutral feedback at best across multiple endeavors.

THE ABOVE STATED...it seems like you have the luxury of not really needing a job. Somehow, you are in a very fortunate environment where you are comfortable. You have sufficient food, shelter, clothing, electricity, etc. that money is not a primary need in your life.

This means you can engage in any number of fun little hobbies. You can enjoy doing a little of this and a little of that, engaging in hobbies that make you a few nickels to spend here or there. With hobbies, we can just enjoy and need not worry about feedback or producing high quality goods.

If I was in your situation and didn’t want to master any one area, then besides YouTube I suggest Fiverr and exploring “passive income” strategies.

Yeah I hear ya, but I don’t see why a jack of all trades can be a bad thing, especially if you’re good at it, or having a few projects your dedicated on, obviously the more you have the less of quality I suppose, but it is possible to do. I can think of a few people who I would consider a jack of all trades, and have their hand in a few businesses

Great. So you have a few people you can reach out to for mentorship.
