Go Off the Beaten Path, The Good Men Project, Matthew Johnson, 3/19/19

I’m not one of those who believe that believing something is sufficient to make it so, but I am convinced that in order to get where you want to be in life, you must deviate from the beaten path.

– Matthew Johnson

I want to share a blog from my friend Matthew Johnson who writes for the The Good Men Project. The project explores “the world of men and manhood in a way that no media company ever has, tackling the issues and questions that are most relevant to men’s lives.”

Matt has been writing pieces on work and careers. This one he recently published on getting off the beaten path to find a career. It is tip #9 in his unofficial unemployment survival guide. Find it here.
