Jobs as Verbs, Not Nouns

Think of your job as a verb rather than a noun.

This “is a mental shift that can help to disentangle who you are as a person from how you spend your days to make money for rent and groceries,” from Tim Herrara, NYT Smarter Living columnist.

For example: I write resumes, rather than I’m a resume writer. Or: I sell advertising, rather than I’m a sales representative. And one more: I keep people organized, rather than I’m an account manager.
