How to do it: I’m not going to be doing much of this, but I’m here to help.
In the last episode of The Best of Chuck, the team of Chuck’s best friends and co-workers (including a mysterious new face) discussed the pros and cons of being a Cowboy, how to get hired at the best companies, and how to be more attractive to the guys at work.
It’s a great episode, with plenty of hilarious bits and a ton of fun anecdotes.
The best part, though, is Chuck’s advice for his new coworkers: be real.
You don’t want to be the kind of guy who says, “I’m just trying to make some extra money,” when you actually want to make a lot of money.
(It’s important to remember, though: it’s a good idea to be honest about your aspirations in the workplace.)
I’m not saying that’s what Chuck meant by this advice.
This is Chuck telling a story, not an actual story.
So, as Chuck’s friends and colleagues discuss the pros of being Cowboy, I’ve included the following thoughts as a sort of outline for you to try your hand at doing what Chuck was talking about:Being a Cowboy isn’t about being rich or famous.
Being a Cowboy is about being humble, kind, and honest.
You can be a Cowboy by saying “no” to the most ridiculous bullshit jobs that have no chance of succeeding.
You have to be willing to be humble, honest, and considerate, because you will never be recognized for being a “Cowboy.”
(If you’re a Cowboy and have to work with men, be careful.)
You need to know your limitations.
You need a sense of humor.
You want to work hard and take pride in yourself.
You won’t be promoted if you’re too honest, but that doesn’t mean you have to go out of your way to be rude and call women names.
You will never get laid if you do work too hard.
And you will always have the opportunity to make more money if you work hard, be honest, be respectful, and take care of yourself.
If you’re not ready for a career in the real world, you’re probably not ready to start your own business.
(Of course, being a real Cowboy is an excellent opportunity to start a business!)
You don’t need to have a degree to be successful.
You just need to be able to put in the work.
Chuck knows this, and he’s right.
You may not have all the answers to your job problems, but you have the tools to fix them.
You might not have a real career, but at least you’ll be a better employee if you learn to do what you’re told instead of just blindly following orders.
The best way to succeed as a Cowboy:Be honest.
If someone asks you a question and you don’t answer it right away, don’t be afraid to tell them to wait.
Listen to their concerns, listen to their opinions, and listen to what they want to hear.
Don’t be the type of guy you have a bad relationship with or you hate working with.
If the answer is no, you should probably not be a cowboy.
You’ll learn quickly.
If a coworker asks you about a certain company or a certain product, try not to respond to them with a negative response.
If that works, it will make you more valuable to the company and help them better understand what you want to do in the future.If you don
