‘Tis Better to Spring Forwards than Fall Back

Spring is the season of new beginnings. Of fresh starts. And, as such, we find that it is an excellent time to start looking for a fresh new job role.

Whether you are actively looking for work, or just beginning to think about it, Jobseekers are here to help.

Below, I have collated some seasonal quotes intended to motivate and inspire you. I hope that they well and truly put a spring in your step!

The Early Bird Gets the Worm:

Or, more poetically put,

“Whoever has tasted the breath of morning knows that the most invigorating and most delightful hours of the day are commonly spent in bed; though it is the evident intention of nature that we should enjoy and profit by them” – Robert Southey.

“It is well to be up before daybreak, for such habits contribute to health, wealth, and wisdom” – Aristotle.

If you are anything like me in the mornings (that is to say, a professional somnambulist until at least 9AM), perhaps the joys and the benefits of rising pre-dawn will inspire you to set your alarm even half an hour early.

Or, then again, if you are anything like me … perhaps not!

Just remember Benjamin Franklin’s warning, to “[…] not squander time, for that is the stuff that life is made of”.

Whether you work best first thing in the morning, or late in the afternoon, always make the most of the time that you have available.

Work’s a Treat:

“Spring is the time of plans and projects”
– Leo Tolstoy, Anna Karenina

It is a time that teems with new life; the buds are blooming, and the fields are filling with flowers, making it the perfect time for you to grow your skills as well.

Mahatma Gandhi wrote, “Live as if you were to die tomorrow. Learn as if you were to live forever”.

Why not learn something new this spring? There are a whole host of online courses that could help boost your CV; so many handy apps to help you learn a new language; or, if you prefer things the old-fashioned way, open a book and you could discover an entire new universe.

 Full of the Joys of Spring:

“The point is that the pleasures of Spring are available to everybody, and cost nothing”
– George Orwell, Some Thoughts on the Common Toad

So, keep busy this spring, but also do not be afraid to stop for a moment, to see what it can offer you. Pause. Breathe. Smell the flowers. Eat the chocolate. Use this long Easter weekend to relax and recharge your batteries, ready for an exciting new start on Tuesday.
