Time is the most valuable commodity in this life. When one suffers a job loss, the tendency can be to waste time on things that aren’t going to get us employed. Many emotional issues are at play. But at some point, we’ve got to get to it.

On my homestead, I have many mundane tasks that must be done. And I have some big tasks that sometimes I find myself avoiding. At some point I realize, I just have to make the time, bear down, lift the heavy weight and get the job done.

It’s overwhelming. And underneath, there may be a fear of rejection (I suffer from that). It’s OK. Focus on the task, not the outcome.

Have in mind your objective: a job, a career. Write the résumé. Join online job boards. Make the call. Do the interview. Dress for success.

For accountability and encouragement, join us for our online Encounter Job Loss Support Group, Monday evenings at 7 p.m. (https://zoom.us/j/174154667). Call (502) 253-8400 for more info.
