Daily Thought: July 4, 2018

A friend of mine reached on out Snapchat yesterday about a job (because it’s the 21st century and, you know, messaging apps).

He came across a job in St. Louis and wanted to apply, but he was underqualified.

This got me thinking.

If there’s one thing I’ve learned over the past decade, it’s that no one actually knows what they’re doing.

Sure, someone may seem like they have their shit together online, but in reality, they’re just as clueless as the rest of us. They have cracks and flaws (some even make a living from exploiting them — i.e. comedians).

At the end of the day, we’re all human and we’re trying our best to find our own way.

Keep this in mind when you’re looking for your next opportunity, and it might not seem as daunting.

Take that chance, apply for that job, put yourself out there.

Personally, I’d rather regret doing something than not doing something.
