“When do I have time to look for a job. I’m too busy!” If I had a dollar for every time I’ve heard this over the years I might have enough to buy a decent used car.
Finding a new job takes time, effort, resources and expertise. If you are a busy professional, or executive, time is often in short supply. The reality is that we all have the same amount of time to use each day. It’s a known quantity. How we choose to invest that time is the key.
The busy martyrs all try to claim it’s out of their control. In truth, their circumstance is almost always the monster they created themselves. The skill that’s missing is the ability to say “no.” They take calls that don’t need their attention. They accept projects and tasks that could be easily delegated. They don’t keep meetings running on time or are long winded themselves.
If something is important you find a way to carve out the time and make it a priority on the calendar. Will it involve some kind of sacrifice? Of course!
It all depends on how important it is to you as to whether you will make the time to do what needs to be done.
