So, like every other blogger on the face of the earth, I recently read Sophia Amoruso’s #GIRLBOSS and I thought it was really great. If you are a human who works (so basically everyone), I highly recommend it. My favorite part was the chapter on “magical thinking,” specifically how you need to keep your eye on the prize even when you’re just trying to get through the most mundane of tasks:
I love the idea of thinking of all the little things as “promises to your own future.” When you first start out in your career, you’re always given a lot of repetitive, un-fun tasks that no one else wants to do. Whether that’s answering phones, filling out paperwork, or washing dishes: GET THAT SHIT DONE. You won’t have to do it forever, believe me. After 2 1/2 years at my company, I’m finally transitioning the last of these mundane tasks to some new girls and I am so, so happy. You will get there!
KEEP YOUR EYE ON THE PRIZE.
