A lesson from Taylor Swift and Beyoncé

Published about 2 months ago • 1 min read

Hello Reader,

My kids and I were talking about how so many of Taylor Swift's and Beyoncé's songs aren't that good.

Sorry if you're a fan!

We love their music, but they have quite a few songs that just aren't that good.

But those that were hits?

Those became huge and made them the megastars they are today.

I recently ran a workshop that didn't do as well as I'd expected.

But one great thing that happened?

I got fantastic feedback and data points to improve on the next one. Maybe I'll let it evolve into something else.

Sometimes what you expect to happen just doesn't. Even megastars experience that.

And if they had let the many bad songs or critics stop them from writing their next hit, we'd never have 'Crazy in Love' or 'Blank Space'.

This is how you become a megastar in your own life.

You keep going, doing the thing you love, even when you've got a dud every once in a while.

See you next week!

Hello Reader, Ever feel confused like you don't know what to do next in your career? Should you stay in your job or leave? Should you ask for a pay increase or keep quiet?

That's what working with a career coach (like me!) can help you with. But if you're not ready to...

'I think I want to drop out.' My son says to me. He's just started a coding assignment in the military. Out of the 7 selected for this unit, he's the only one without any coding experience. 'I'm slowing everyone down. They're all ahead in the assignments.' When things get hard, it's natural to feel like giving up. So I asked him, 'Is this something you want to learn and do?' 'Yes.' he said. So I said, 'Then you'll have to be prepared it will be hard in the beginning because you're trying to...
