I recently had a conversation with a client who I had worked with a short time - we had gone over some of the foundational work of a job search regarding direction, introduction statements and resume work. She came on our last call and said she had a conversation with someone who asked her about the kind of work she was looking for. As she characterized it "I sounded like a babbling idiot." Then she said to me: "I now understand why you asked me to prepare and practice this statement."
Aahh haah, the light bulb moment - I love it! Don't get me wrong, I don't like having clients say they sounded like a "babbling idiot", but I DO like having a teachable moment regarding my mantra: It's not about the information you have, it's what you DO with the information...the action you take.
So, my question for you is: What information do you have that you need to take action on? It's great to have light bulb moments, but not at the expense of risking an opportunity.
Luckily, my client's conversation was not with someone who had an actual job possibility for her. So don't risk it! Take the action now and save your 'light bulb moments' for some other non-job-search lesson!
