When we take a draft, we tend to obsess about how well it is written. Fernando Gros tells us not to worry about it:

  1. the purpose of the first draft is to record our ideas, and the emphasis is on speed, not quality.
  2. the more we write, the less we worry about the quality of the first draft.
  3. acknowledging that the first draft is not perfect is the first step.

This is very similar to resume writing, where many of our friends expect the first draft of the resume to be a hit, and just fill in the blanks according to a template. However, a truly effective resume is one that is revised. Our revised resumes have helped many of our friends to get interviews in big names.

当我们打草稿时,往往纠结于写得好不好。Fernando Gros 告诉我们完全不用这么想。

  1. 初稿的作用是记录我们的想法,重在记录,而不是质量;
  2. 写得越多,也就越不担心初稿的质量;
  3. 承认初稿并不完美是第一步;

这和简历写作很类似,很多朋友期望简历能够一蹴而就,按着模版填空就行。然而真正有效的简历是改出来的。我们修改的简历已经帮助不少朋友拿到了大厂面试机会,如果你也想有更有效的简历,不妨试试我们的服务
