My mother had a great saying she liked to share with me – as in regularly beat me over the head: “Do not put off until tomorrow what you can do today.”


She was relentless, and I was stubborn. She was right.


This saying is particularly relevant in the world of career management and looking for a job.
Managing your career and actively looking for a job requires that you put yourself out there using social media and strategic networking. If you are not comfortable using social media or contacting people you do not know, you will find every reason in the book not to do those essential but uncomfortable tasks.

No one wants to look foolish or face the sting of rejection.


But here is the reality: the pace of change and career disruption is accelerating. You cannot afford to procrastinate. If you are struggling, find a career coach who gets you but who will hold your feet to the fire.
