For the past year, I have been taking piano lessons and reacquainting myself with the repertoire that I studied thirty years ago (yeah, I’m that old). Here’s something that I’ve learned as an adult music student that applies to the job search: a little bit every day makes a difference. I don’t have time to sit for an entire hour to practice Chopin nocturnes or master a Bach two-part invention. But I can set aside three or four 15-minute sessions on most days. These small chunks of activity translate into real progress over time. The same can be said for the mundane, and often very frustrating aspects, of a job search. A little bit every day adds up and makes a difference. Do you agree?
