Resolution or Revolution

Posted on | Posted in Recruitment

It’s that time of year again, when we make New Year Resolutions.  Things we’re going to do differently, more of, less of.  Things we’ve always wanted to do, don’t want to do ever again – life changing things.

But when you think of the word itself, “resolution” it’s not very positive is it?  “I’m resolved to finding a new job”, sounds like a chore.  Let’s face it, most New Year Resolutions are.  They’re the habits that die hard, the things we enjoy but are bad for us.  So, if it is a chore, why give them up?  Surely, changes should be life affirming not done under duress.

Let’s have New Year Revolutions instead!  In fact, let’s just have revolutions all year round.  The language is so much more positive.  It fires up the imagination to passion, purpose, determination – it needs to change and we’re going to change it! (*waves flag in exaggerated mannner, with hair streaming in the wind*)

Wote Street People’s New Year Revolution is to carry out 25 things in celebration of our 25 years in business.  So far we’ve rebranded, launched a new website, had a 1980’s day to celebrate our Silver Anniversary (any excuse to dress up) and we’re about to take our database to the cloud.  Now that IS revolutionary for us.

We’re also looking to raise money for a local charity with an inter-company cricket match; take part in Dryathlon this January; have a pancake challenge; an office bake off (noticing a food theme here?); treasure hunt and quiz night amongst other things.

So if looking for a new job is your resolution – bin it – and start a revolution instead.  Dust down your passion, be determined to find the role you want and get purpose back into your life – after all, find a job you love and you’ll never have to ” work” again.

Long live the revolution!
