How can a student with a high school diploma earn $15,000 in just a few months to earn a high paying job with less work?
I asked my friend, David, who has worked for the past few years as an accountant at the National Geographic Society.
He has three kids in college, and he wants to get to the end of his degree before he has to start saving for a home.
“We have this big bubble going, and it’s not going to go away,” David said.
“You can’t just go into a new job and hope that you make it.
I can’t wait to get out of that bubble.”
The bubbles David has been in can be found in a variety of fields.
But when I asked him how to make the transition from an accounting job to a position with a salary, he said, “You just need to find a way to put in a little extra work.”
He said that if he were in the same position today, he would take the following steps: 1.
Work smarter and harder to stay ahead of the curve.
David says that if his job requires him to spend more time in front of a computer, then he needs to increase his productivity to make sure that he has enough time to focus on the task at hand.
“If I had to work 10 hours a day and make two hours back,” David explained, “I’d be done by the end.”
Focus on your passions.
David said that his passions are photography and hiking, and that if those are the ones he is passionate about, then that is the job he should be working on.
“The more you love what you do,” he said.
Don’t take things too seriously.
David advises that he will not do anything rash.
“I don’t want to take myself too seriously,” he advised.
“Don’t try to take it too seriously and think that I’m crazy or anything.
That’s not really who I am.”
“It’s a big business, and they want you to be humble,” David advised.
He said, if someone gives you a bad review, they are probably not going for it.
“They may not be expecting that you would be that hard on yourself,” he explained.
Don.t. take anything personally.
If you are not going through the right experiences to reach the same level of success as David, then you are probably wasting your time.
Use your brain.
“There’s a whole bunch of people out there who are doing it the right way,” David concluded.
“That’s what makes you successful, and if you take the time to learn from that, you can be successful too.”
