Remember all those grumpy mornings just because you had nothing to look forward to at work?
We can all attest to having that one job that you took up either because you had zero experience, you needed the money to pay your bills or you wanted to fill up the free time that you had. Those jobs might have ended up being either good or bad. Unfortunately, there are those who had more than a fair share of bad jobs. Remember all those grumpy mornings just because you had nothing to look forward to at work?
The more you advance in your career journey and take a look back at what you had to go through, sometimes it’s hard not to laugh at the first odd jobs you took. Even though those jobs were not as distinguished, it does not mean that they were worthless. However, those experiences that felt like the worst end up giving you the best career lessons of your life and lay a solid ground for future career success.
The positive learnings from having that worst job can be:
1.You realize you can do any job effectively
With dedication and determination, you can hack any job
2.You learn to motivate yourself
Knowing not to rely on others to motivate you or set a mission and goals for you.
3.You learn how to evaluate people
