I got so many kind and lovely replies to my email yesterday, that I wanted to shoot out an email to say thank you.
It means so much.
(And I promise to get round to you later today!)
I’m not being lazy (honest).
I’m just in “that” phase…
You know when you start a new job and you want to blow them away, so you check EVERY SINGLE THING 35,253 different times before hitting “SEND” because you want to make ABSOLUTELY sure you haven’t made a colossal boo-boo…?
I’m in THAT zone at the moment.
It feels like I’m working at this kind of pace…
In fact, if you could play that at 0.5 speed, that’d be about right.
Anyway, thanks again for your kind words, you have no idea how much it lit me up.
I’ve spent the last few days feeling massive amounts of imposter syndrome – the feeling that I shouldn’t be here.
“They made a mistake!”
“They’re regretting hiring me already”
“I’m gonna get found out…”
I’ve had to remind myself – every 4 minutes – that, actually, this has been the most honest I’ve EVER been in a job application.
At no part of the process did I feel like I was lying or “massaging” my CV to suit it.
“Do I have any experience in thoracic surgery? Absolutely! I’m very experienced. When I was 8, my mate Gavin fell over and cut his chest… and I put my finger in it!”
The job advert sounded like it was written with me in mind.
(Stupid copywriters… getting into the head of the audience!)
So much so that when I fired out a “Sniper” like approach, it felt like the most natural thing in the world.
I didn’t have to lie. I just had to tell the truth.
In fact, I wanted to get my passion and enthusiasm across so much, I even went the extra mile…
… and I’ll add that to the “Sniper Approach” PDF in the GOOGLE DRIVE OF AWESOMENESS!!!! at a future date.
My god, this has been a long-ass way of saying thank you.
Maybe see you tomorrow,
