Job Search Magic Pill vs. Eat Right and Exercise

A couple of weeks ago I was on a webinar where I once again promoted Michael Webb’s job search program as the most solid program I’ve seen.

It’s simple.

But it’s really hard to implement (until you just DO IT).

After the webinar, I was thinking about his system, and why people won’t do it.

They spend tons of time and effort and money and thinking on other systems that seem more simple, and promise at least the same results.

I started to think about health, and comparing it to this issue.  Michael Webb’s system is like eating right and exercising, which is a pretty solid plan to get healthy (lose weight, etc.).

But we (collectively) don’t want to do that.  It’s too hard.  We want the ab machine from the commercial.  Or we want the pill, or the spoonful of whatever.  We want the shortcut.

How does that shortcut work out?

That’s right.

So go for the solid program, not the fad diet.

I’m not saying Michael’s is the only solid program – I have partners and colleagues that have solid programs.  They are out there.

But I’m telling you, if you are looking for the short cut, you might see quick results that tend to fade quickly.

  1. So true, Jason. While I have no experience with Michael Webb’s program, I do have experience training for marathons. You can find training plans that will get you to the start line – but you will have a painful recovery. (assuming you finish) Or you can do it the right way, run a lot more miles, be more prepared and have a much less painful recovery. (It hurts for everyone to some degree-whether you run up to 100 or more miles a week or peak at 35-40 miles a week.)
