Capabilities Speak Louder Than Qualifications Good Life Project

    • Self-Improvement

Have you ever done something because you thought it would look good on your resume? Studied at a particular school or with a particular person?
What if, instead of trying to pile on credentials from esteemed people and institutions in the name of building a resume, you based your choices on what would let you increase your capabilities, your ability to make a difference, with the greatest speed and depth?
Sure, sometimes you can do both, but often times, we get lost in the quest to amass qualifications and forget the end game is not to have a "seemingly" glossy resume, but to cultivate the ability to leave others changed. To make a dent in the universe.
That's what we're talking about in today's GLP Riff.
