  3. Amazing how much you were able to convey in such a short video — great value for the just-over-two-minute time investment with applicability beyond the job search process. It’s amazing how much we do in business is about momentum, especially for those of us who depend on business and client development for success — which is like a continual job search. I think that this is a timely post for many and an excellent reminder with clear, salient points. Thanks, Jeff.

  5. Jeff, I love this analogy! It’s so true, you can’t give up momentum you never know if the next step (or hill) will be the one that gets you there. I liken this to sales where if you have the right attitude you know that if you are maximizing your potential, every no takes you closer to the yes. Job seekers should be excited by this advice and your kind and expert offer of advice. ~Karla

  6. Jeff,
    great post. and especially true now with the economy the way it is and it’s harder and going to take longer to find that job.

    We wrote on our blog
    about setting the next action as being the single most important action anyone can do.

    All the activity you’ve generated can quickly grind to a halt of you don’t decide what the next action will be and when you’re going to take it. And decide this as you’re doing it, not when it comes up for follow up.
