Wake me up when September ends

Too many compromises have already led to the end of September. Originally, I wanted to have a job by my birthday, which did not work out. 45 days have passed since then, and I have missed both my subsequently targets of end of August and the end of September.

I am going to wake up a different person tomorrow and adopt a do-or-die attitude for my job search and narrow my focus on things that have positive ROI. Having been in the job market for quite some time, I now know which segment of the job market is receptive to my skills and experience and which is not. I will reduce my job search efforts in areas that have not yielded any fruit and focus on improving my ability to sell my uniqueness as a candidate.

This prolonged job search period also taught me that there is no such thing as good karma. Unless a direct or an indirect cause-and-effect relationship is be established between a good deed and a positive personal outcome, I refuse to believe that a such thing exists. I have been paying it forward for quite some time, and it is about time I was awarded some form of restitution.
