The True Joy Of Being A Nerd.
An essential part of working with and expanding your reputation is to embrace a niche, being visible as THE expert - the person that people will listen to, trust and hire. Jack of all trades is the master of none is a figure of speech, but it’s more important than ever. It’s about the Nerd Factor.
It deals with the aspiration of becoming remarkable in your area and experience the pure joy of being genuinely good at what you do. People with this aspiration build an excellent reputation since they never settle for less. They are bold, do things before they become necessary and start before they are ready, releasing the beta version of themselves. Remarkable people are worth talking about, and they seldom need a resume. And, we can all become remarkable in our area.
For the last ten years, I’ve worked with the intention of being a nerd in the reputation area, and I’ve enjoyed every minute of it since will decide your professional future. Seth Godin has, in my opinion, made the most interesting statement about the importance of reputation when he wrote: “Your reputation has as much impact on your life as what you do.” Still many, whatever position, are surprisingly unaware of its content.
My commitment is crystal clear to make the Reputation Resumé to the most critical document in your professional life.
