The Process is Necessary for the Purpose
By Cory Stanton
When it comes to finding a job things can get a little frustrating. Just like anything else in life there is definitely a process that you have to go through.
One of my favorite sayings is that “the process is necessary for the purpose.” Being consistent in your search for the perfect job is one of the most important things that you have to focus on during the process.
I am a middle school basketball coach. I have (on some days) the BEST 6th grade boys and (on other days) the absolute worst 6th grade boys! Each day, whether it be in practice or games, I make sure I repeat certain things. One might be, “today is another day to get better,” or “today is a great day to continue to strive for the things we want out of life.”
It has been a very bumpy road for some of my players this year as they struggle with the transition from one level of competition to another. The awesome thing about it is, they bought in to the process. They stayed the course, and are reaping the benefits from the consistency that they showed throughout the season.
So if you're looking for a job or working on a promotion, don't give up! You will always be tested as you work to make yourself better. Stick with it, that process is necessary for the purpose!
