Are There More Than Two Sides to the Story?

Some people think that it’s the fault of the recruiters and some think it’s the fault of the employer. No one can pin more of the blame on either side. If one thinks about it, both sides have something to do with why someone does or doesn’t get hired. Could there be more?

There is one more party we can blame in this situation, and that’s ourselves. It’s not always us, but it isn’t always them either. Does anyone ever gun for themselves or is it easier to pass the blame?

All three parties face a challenge in this situation:

  • The employer has to find the right candidate for the job.
  • The recruiter is hired to find the right candidate for a job based on the information given by someone else.
  • The candidate has to be right for the position based on what someone else thinks or says makes them the perfect fit.

It’s said that there are two sides to every story. Is it only two?

I Brainstorm Instead Of Procrastinating


When I have a lot to do or when I’m in the middle of doing something, I stop the think. I normally do this when involved in something that in have no interest in or when I don’t want to start an uninteresting task right away.

Some call it avoidance and some call it the procrastination. I use my time wisely. I think off subject about something more enjoyable that I would rather be doing. I come up with new ideas, what to cook for dinner, or what I want to do with the kids later. I make note of it and get back to the uninteresting task.

What does off subject brainstorming do for me? It reminds me that if it stand there any longer, I won’t get to the things I would rather be doing. Self motivation

Own Your Pain


No one can heal you, but you. Accept it for what it is to heal yourself emotionally and mentally.

Physical pain is a job of the mind. To heal yourself physically but still live through the pain, be the same fighter you were before the pain. Remain active in as many ways possible.

  • You can’t think it through to stop it, you can only understand it and work with it
  • You have to know the risks. There is no medication that will stop it permanently. What may calm the symptoms for one pain may bring pain in other places. Know how it will affect you
  • You have to accept it and┬ámake accommodations
  • You have to know your limitations and accept them
