should you have failed in pursuit of an ambition before you just give up?
just asking, like.
you haven't failed you just succeded in finding a way that doesn't work
Until she gets a restraining order
Or, sometimes, I don't even try and just accept defeat from the off.
.. I don`t think it is possible to give up on a real ambition.
Even when you shout it and say fuck it.. You will come back :)
take a break and say fuck it..
to play football for england. you'd advise me to give up, surely?
but if you consistently fail in pursuit of one, does it suggest you have misjudged how realistic it is?
what is your ambition?
because i sent a job application off LAST NIGHT and received this e-mail at 9:30am
"Dear Mr Kimmett,
Thank you for taking the time to send your CV. As you will appreciate, posts in Parliament attract large numbers of applications as well as applications of the highest quality.
Your knowledge of public policy is good but you do not have quite the level of experience I need for this particular vacancy.
I wish you well in your search for a post."
keep trying, you'll get there in the end. Especially if it is a job/career you REALLY want.
Are you planning on moving down to London then?
but nobody will give me a job and nobody ever will
as the job i do now (political research dude) except in london and on better money.
get the experence you need
9 months experience and loads of people get jobs there on the back of 3 month internships n stuff.
i'm employed by parliament now and i get the statutory minimum
not true at all. i'm sure people get lazy, but all the ones i know still go in.
your name isn't Jacob Jones?????
no it's not
this is almost as shocking as when I found out that brainlove's name ISN'T brainlove!
you might do better if you didn't pretend to be some dude called 'kimmett' when your name is OBVIOUSLY jacob jones
it is a myth that constant work will give you your dreams.. unless it is painting a huge wall or something
I mean, if the ambition is to be the greatest artist in the world by the time you're 25 then you give up at the age of 26 since it's now unachievable.
Probably best to give up when you're actually impairing getting on with your life because of your pursuit of a goal.
Most of the time you only get jobs by having more experience and you can only get more as time goes on.
so i should probably quit my job ...
The best angle from which to approach a problem is the Try-angle... :D
Unless it concerns someone else. Then i feel bad if i give up.
