Perhaps without success.
You look again.
So on and forth.
Till you find.
An addition to your core-system.
What’s a core-system?
The better question here would be – what’s your core-system?
Now, fortunately or unfortunately, that’s for you to find.
In a nutshell, your core-system is that something which makes you tick. It has as many facets as you wish it to have. Each facet needs to be discovered, attached, fine-tuned, tried, tested and finally welcomed to or rejected from your core-system.
Facets are not limited to your professional life. Your core-system makes you tick on an all-round basis.
For example, brewing and savouring that perfect cup of tea could be an important facet. Finding, fine-tuning and enjoying your favorite media-source could be another. Blogging could be one. Sport. Hobbies. Family time. People skills. Yeah, now we’re getting professional. You can fill in your professional blanks.
Discovery costs. Time, effort, funds, nerve, sweat. It’s worth it many times over when you find a fit. Please believe me.
Some things don’t fit. You think you want them badly, but the harder you try, the more they refuse to fit. After trying your hardest, you need to conserve your life-force to look for another fit. What didn’t fit didn’t fit for a reason. It’s not mandatory for Nature to reveal that reason to you. Move on.
Keep looking for fits. Eventually, you’ll have a robust core-system, which will make you tick exceptionally.
