Why Pursuing Challenging Jobs Is A Great Thing

Oct. 2022

The best jobs are the ones that challenge and grow you. They give you opportunities to learn new things and take on new challenges.

They build your skills so that no matter what career path you choose in the future, those skills will be valuable.

In fact, many of the most successful people had their careers kick-started by challenges that ultimately led them to places they never expected to be.

What is a "challenge"? 

The challenge of a job is how the work itself can help you grow, either as a person or in your career, think outside the box, try new things and think critically. If you're not challenged in your job, then you're not growing and learning.

The best jobs are the ones where you learn something new every day. The more skills you have, the better job opportunities there are for people who have those skills.

What is "growth"? 

Growth is the process of changing and developing over time. It's not a static thing; you're always growing, whether that's through learning new things, gaining experience, or deepening your understanding of something you already know.

Here are three ways to find these kinds of jobs:

1. Look for opportunities where growth is inevitable.

2. Start a side project instead of waiting for an opportunity with equal pay or prestige.

3. Look for an industry where there is room for everyone's skillset

Challenges force us to learn

In life, there are always challenges and you need to face them head on. In order for your life not to be full of regrets, it's important to face every challenge you come across in life head on. 

Challenges are what make life interesting and worthwhile. They're what make us grow as people and as professionals.

When faced with these challenges, the most important thing is not just doing what needs to be done but also figuring out how best to accomplish it. 

The key here is learning from your mistakes and not just repeating them over and over again until they become habits which can then be mastered without much effort or time spent thinking through them beforehand.

You're going to have a lot of opportunities to grow and learn at work. Take advantage of them!

Life is about taking chances on yourself, so why not take some chances with your career?
