If you’re looking for a new job or a way to move up the “food chain” at work, it may not be a bad idea to start running. It seems that running is becoming a common way of determining whether someone is a worthy hire or not. General Petraeus, the four-start general who is currently in command of the multinational force fighting in Iraq and an avid runner, says this in a recent interview for Runner’s World:
There’s something about an individual who has self-discipline, drive, basic fitness, and the heart to run reasonably well that indicates the kind of spirit that you are after in people who take on tough tasks.
So next time you start to prepare for a job interview, it may not hurt to get a few runs under your belt, too – you never know if the interview will take place on the street!
