The perfect job is at the top of the mountain in front of you. You run towards it, run run run. You climb up the side of the mountain, climb climb climb.
You stop to assess your progress.
You realise you are further away from the job.
The more you run towards it the further you get from it.
The higher you climb towards it, the further you get from it.
What the actual fuck is going on?
You keep trying.
It is frustrating you. Making you angry.
You are so desperate to reach the top.
You are doing everything right.
Why isn’t it working??
I know why it isn’t working. I’ve been there.
Do you want to know what I did to get to the top of the mountain?
