A Little Bit Every Day Makes a Difference

July 2, 2013

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?
