Love your career

Good friend and colleague Sital Ruparelia wrote this fun poem for Valentines day:

Roses are red, violets are blue

Here’s a Valentines poem, I wrote just for you

Maybe you’re searching for “the one” job you’ll truly love

A job so special, it fits like a glove

Maybe you’ve set your sights on becoming a career changer

To start a new business and become an entrepreneur

Or maybe you’re just looking for one last romance

To grab some “me time” and precious work-life balance

Alas, the secrets of career success are no different to finding personal joy

Where the winners get nowhere by being shy and coy

To find that job, promotion or brand new lifestyle

You need to step up a gear and go the extra mile

Step out of your comfort zone and step out onto the wire

Take some risks and the occasional flyer

Stop hiding behind inexperience and personal history

And build a competitive advantage around your unique story

Stop procrastinating and waiting for your ducks to line up in a row

The time will never be “right” – so go on, just have a go!

Stop putting off the dream until “someday”

When the best time to get started is, in fact, today

The world is waiting for you to do the work you love

And maybe this poem is “the sign” you’ve been waiting for, from “up above”

For today is Valentine’s Day, a time for celebrating great romances

So start scaring yourself by taking a few more chances

Happy Valentines day folks
