I heard that today in a talk. We are obsessed with resumes – as if our resume is the complete catalog of our value and worth. We write it all out, and we use it to get jobs.
I heard last week that when the Israel was in captivity in Egypt – you know, the whole Prince of Egypt movie – they’re value and worth was measured in bricks. They found their worth in how many bricks they could make. They created a resume everyday by knowing the number of bricks they created. The more bricks they made, the more bricks were required.
Thankfully, you’re more than your resume. Don’t get me wrong – have an amazing one, and there’s nothing wrong with making bricks. But just be amazing – that’s much better.

” But just be amazing – that’s much better” i like that
Im a big fan of telling my students to just “be amazing.”. Seriously, what’s stopping them? What stops us? Sometimes we just need permission so that’s what I do. Anyone can be amazing if they want to be. Thanks for the comment Nancy.
