Fast thinking looks cool but it’s deep thinking that makes all the difference. And deep thinking is always slow thinking. @TheAncientSage (See also: thinking quotes)
Who then is free? The wise man who can command himself. Horace
Man is wise and constantly in quest of more wisdom; but the ultimate wisdom, which deals with beginnings, remains locked in a seed. There it lies, the simplest fact of the universe and at the same time the one which calls forth faith rather than reason. Hal Borland
One part of wisdom is knowing what you don’t need anymore and letting it go. Jane Fonda
Do what you will, withdraw to the mountains, sit in a forest, you cannot live in isolation. You can live only in relationship, and as long as relationship is not understood, there can be no right action. Right action comes in understanding relationship, which reveals the process of oneself. Self-knowledge is the beginning of wisdom, it is a field of affection, warmth, and love, therefore a field rich with flowers. Jiddu Krishnamurti
First of all, to understand truth you must stand alone, entirely and wholly alone. No Master, no teacher, no guru, no system, no self-discipline will ever lift for you the veil which conceals wisdom. Wisdom is the understanding of enduring values and the living of those values. No one can lead you to wisdom. Jiddu Krishnamurti
Our concern in meditation is to know oneself, not only superficially, but the whole content of the inner, hidden consciousness. Without knowing all that and being free of its conditioning, you cannot possibly go beyond the mind’s limits. That is why the thought process must cease, and for this cessation there must be knowledge of oneself. Therefore meditation is the beginning of wisdom, which is the understanding of one’s own mind and heart. Jiddu Krishnamurti
Men who know themselves are no longer fools. They stand on the threshold of the door of wisdom. Havelock Ellis
Wisdom consists not so much in knowing what to do in the ultimate as knowing what to do next. Herbert Hoover
If you have the guts to keep making mistakes, your wisdom and intelligence leap forward with huge momentum. Holly Near
The fool doth think he is wise, but the wise man knows himself a fool. Anatole France
Seek wisdom along with knowledge. Knowledge is words. Wisdom is silent. Knowledge is understanding what is seen. Wisdom is knowing what is not seen. Without knowledge, one could not play the violin. Without wisdom, one could not play the music. Thibaut
We’re all going to change. Otherwise, it’s boring. Alicia Keys (See also: 4 Strategies To Change Your Habits That Actually Work, fastcompany.com)
Pain and foolishness lead to great bliss and complete knowledge, for Eternal Wisdom created nothing under the sun in vain. Kahlil Gibran
True wisdom is remembering that in the end, no matter what, everything will be fine. Maxime Lagacé
Follow your instincts. That’s where true wisdom manifests itself. Oprah Winfrey
Silence at the proper season is wisdom, and better than any speech. Plutarch
There is a universal, intelligent, life force that exists within everyone and everything. It resides within each one of use as a deep wisdom, an inner knowing. We can access this wonderful source of knowledge and wisdom through our intuition, an inner sense that tells us what feels right and true for us at any given moment. Shakti Gawain
If the fool would persist in his folly he would become wise. William Blake

Ah, the dreaded cover letter. Every time you sit down to write one, you probably browse cover letter examples online, get overwhelmed, and think something to the effect of: Does anyone really read these? Wouldn’t it be so much easier if I could just let my resume speak for itself?
First off: Yes, we can assure you that cover letters do, in fact, get read. In fact, to some hiring managers, they’re the most important part of your job application. And yes, while it would be easier to let your resume speak for itself, if that was the case you’d completely miss the opportunity to tell prospective employers who you are, showcase why they should hire you, and stand out above all the other candidates.
Write a Fresh Cover Letter for Each Job
Yes, it’s way faster and easier to take the cover letter you wrote for your last application, change the name of the company, and send it off. But most employers want to see that you’re truly excited about the specific position and company-which means creating a custom letter for each position you apply for.
While it’s OK to recycle a few strong sentences and phrases from one cover letter to the next, don’t even think about sending out a 100% generic letter. “Dear Hiring Manager, I am excited to apply to the open position at your company” is an immediate signal to recruiters and hiring managers that you’re resume-bombing every job listing in town. Mistakes like this can get your application tossed straight in the trash.
But Go Ahead, Use a Template
That said, there’s nothing that says you can’t get a little help. Try our basic cover letter template, or one that focuses on your skills.
Include the Hiring Manager’s Name
The most traditional way to address a cover letter is to use the person’s first and last name, including “Mr.” or “Ms.” (for example, “Dear Ms. Jane Smith” or just “Dear Ms. Smith”). If you know for sure that the company or industry is more casual, you can drop the title and last name (“Dear Jane”). And if you’re not 100% positive whether to use “Mr.” or “Ms.” based on the name and some Googling, definitely skip the title.
Never use generic salutations like ” To Whom it May Concern ” or “Dear Sir or Madam”-they’re stiff, archaic, and did we mention that cover letters need to be customized? If you can’t figure out the specific hiring manager’s name, try addressing your cover letter to the head of the department for the role you’re applying for. Or if you honestly can’t find a single real person to address your letter to, aim for something that’s still somewhat specific, like “Systems Engineer Hiring Manager” or “Account Executive Search Committee.”
For more help, read these rules for addressing your cover letter, and a few tips for how to find the hiring manager.
Craft a Killer Opening Line
No need to lead with your name-the hiring manager can see it already on your resume. It’s good to mention the job you’re applying for (the hiring manager may be combing through candidates for half a dozen different jobs), and yes, you could go with something simple like, “I am excited to apply for [job] with [Company].” But consider introducing yourself with a snappy first sentence that highlights your excitement about the company you’re applying to, your passion for the work you do, or your past accomplishments.
Need inspiration? Check out these examples of how to start your cover letter in an engaging, attention-grabbing way, or these eight examples of awesome cover letters that actually worked.
Go Beyond Your Resume
A super common pitfall many job seekers fall into is to use their cover letter to regurgitate what’s on their resume. Don’t simply repeat yourself: “I was in charge of identifying and re-engaging former clients.” Instead, expand on those bullet points to paint a fuller picture of your experiences and accomplishments, and show off why you’d be perfect for the job and the company.
For example: “By analyzing past client surveys, NPS scores, and KPIs, as well as simply picking up the phone, I was able to bring both a data-driven approach and a human touch to the task of re-engaging former clients.”
Having trouble figuring out how to do this? Try asking yourself these questions:
What approach did you take to tackling one of the responsibilities you’ve mentioned on your resume?
What details would you include if you were telling someone a (very short!) story about how you accomplished that bullet point?
What about your personality, passion, or work ethic made you especially good at getting the job done?
Think Not What the Company Can Do for You
Another common cover letter mistake? Talking about how great the position would be for you and your resume. Frankly, hiring managers are aware of that-what they really want to know is what you’re going to bring to the position and company. Try to identify the company’s pain points -the problem or problems that they need the person they hire to solve. Then emphasize the skills and experience you have that make you the right person to solve them.
On that note…
Highlight the Right Experiences
Not sure what skills and experiences you should be featuring? Typically the most important requirements for the position will be listed first in the job description, or mentioned more than once. You’ll want to make sure you describe how you can deliver on those key priorities.
Another trick: Drop the text of the job description into a word cloud tool like WordClouds, and see what stands out. That’s what the hiring manager is looking for most.
Showcase Your Skills
When you know you have the potential to do the job-but your past experience doesn’t straightforwardly sell you as the perfect person for the position-try focusing on your skills instead. That skills-based template we mentioned before will help you do just that. (Psst: You can also take this approach with a skills-based resume.)
…Not Necessarily Your Education
Don’t Apologize for Your Missing Experience
When you don’t meet all of the job requirements, it’s tempting to use lines like, “Despite my limited experience as a manager…” or “While I may not have direct experience in marketing…” But why apologize? Instead of drawing attention to your weaknesses, emphasize the strengths and transferable skills you do have.
Here’s what that might look like: “I’m excited to translate my experience in [what you’ve done in the past] to a position that’s more [what you’re hoping to do next].”
Throw in a Few Numbers
Hiring managers love to see stats-they show you’ve had a measurable impact on an organization or company you’ve worked for. That doesn’t mean you have to have doubled revenue at your last job. Did you bring in more clients than any of your peers? Put together an impressive number of events? Made a process at work 30% more efficient? Those numbers speak volumes about what you could bring to your next position, and make your cover letter stand out.
You don’t even have to have worked with numbers at all! Check out a few more tips for adding stats to those resume bullets, even if your previous jobs involved dealing with people, not figures.
Used sparingly, great feedback from former co-workers, managers, or clients can go a long way toward illustrating your passion or skills.
Be Open to Other Formats
If you’re applying to a more traditional company, then the tried-and-true three-to-five-paragraph format probably makes sense. However, if you’re gunning for a more creative or startup job-or need to explain to the hiring manager, say, how your career has taken you from teaching to business development-a different approach could be appropriate.
Here at The Muse, we’ve seen cover letters use bullet points, tell stories, or showcase videos to (successfully) get their point across. One woman wrote a cover letter from her dog’s perspective. This professional even turned hers into a BuzzFeed-style list!
Cut the Formality
We know, you’re trying to be professional. But being excessively formal can actually backfire on you, career expert Mark Slack points out: “It makes you seem insincere and even robotic, not anything like the friendly, approachable, and awesome-to-work-with person you are.”
Even when you’re applying for a very corporate role, there’s usually room to express yourself in a conversational, genuine way.
Write in the Company’s “Voice”
Cover letters are a great way to show that you understand the environment and culture of the company and industry. Spending some time reading over the company website or stalking their social media before you get started can be a great way to get in the right mindset-you’ll get a sense for the company’s tone, language, and culture, which are all things you’ll want to mirror as you’re writing.
Go Easy on the Enthusiasm
Don’t Let Your Fear of Bragging Get in the Way
If you tend to have a hard time writing about yourself, here’s a quick trick: What would your favorite boss, your best friend, or your mentor say about you? How would they sing your praises? Then write the letter from their point of view.
Keep it Short and Sweet
There are always exceptions to the rule, but in general, for resumes and cover letters alike, don’t go over a page. In one survey, more than two-thirds of employers said they preferred a cover letter that’s either just half a page (around 250 words) or ” the shorter the better.”
Having trouble getting rid of your carefully crafted sentences? Check out these tips for cutting down your cover letter to a page or less.
It’s tempting to treat the final lines of your cover letter as a throwaway: “I look forward to hearing from you.” But your closing paragraph is your last chance to emphasize your enthusiasm for the company or how you’d be a great fit for the position.
For example, you could say: “I’m passionate about [Company]’s mission and would love to bring my [add your awesome skills here] to this position.” You can also use the end of your letter to add important details-like, say, the fact that you’re willing to relocate for the job. Check out more examples and a template here, and read about a few cover letter closing lines you definitely don’t want to use.
We shouldn’t have to tell you to run your cover letter through spell-check (you should!), but remember that having your computer scan for typos isn’t the same as editing. Set your letter aside for a day or even a few hours, and then read through it again with fresh eyes-you’ll probably notice some changes you want to make. You might even want to ask a friend or family member to give it a look.
If you need some extra help, you can check out how the wording sounds to others using Hemingway. Paste in your text, and the app will highlight sentences and sections that are too complex or wordy, use passive voice, or are overloaded with fancy vocabulary when simpler words will do. You don’t have to take all of its suggestions (maybe “facilitate” really is the best word choice there!), but it’s a handy way to check the readability of your letter.
Remember, one spelling or grammar mistake can be all it takes to turn off the hiring manager-especially if writing skills are an important part of the role you’re applying for.
Have Someone Gut Check It
Have a friend take a look at your cover letter, and ask him or her two questions: Does this sell me as the best person for the job? and Does it get you excited? If the answer to either is “no,” or even slight hesitation, go back for another pass.
Finally, read this if you’re looking to write a letter of intent instead of a cover letter-yes, there’s a difference.
This year I’ll celebrate my three-year “Cancerversary” of a Stage 2 Triple Negative Breast Cancer diagnosis. It took eight months of chemotherapy, surgery, and radiation to battle my disease. As a survivor, I can say that the healing process is arduous. Physical and mental challenges continue long after the stages of cancer end, but for me, life has become more meaningful. After assessing cancer’s collateral beauty, I have found so much to enjoy and appreciate.
Some days my bones feel twice my age and chemo-brain leaves me struggling to find the right words. But I’ve done more living since my cancer treatment ended in February than I have in many years. I’ve landed on the ocean from a seaplane, I’ve snorkeled, kayaked, seen the rolling waves of both coasts, saw the cherry blossoms in Washington, DC, savored the change of seasons in the Midwest, and spectated at my kids’ soccer, volleyball, and music performances. I am so thankful for these moments in motherhood and for my life as a whole.
Life experiences are more meaningful when you’ve been given a second chance. Things I thought were important before cancer seem insignificant after cancer. I am still new at survivorship and learning how to navigate, but my life is beautiful and totally worth living.
I’ve discovered some things I’d like to share that have helped me live a richer, more hope-filled life as a cancer survivor.
1. You are a survivor.
The day you were diagnosed, you became a cancer survivor. A survivor is someone who continues to live. Think of survivorship as a mindset. Each day is a gift, so do things that are meaningful to you. Live in the present, not focused on the past or trying to predict the future. Cancer is a part of your story, but don’t let it define you. Delight in life as a cancer survivor. Have faith that God’s got this. He has a plan for you, even if you can’t see it now. “For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future” (Jeremiah 29:10).
2. Choose joy.
There are so many things about cancer that are beyond our control, but how we react is entirely up to us. We are in full control of our own attitude and cancer has no power over joy. I’m going to say that again, cancer has no power over joy. It cannot defeat your spirit. Choose to be joyful and glad that you are alive. Lean into the Lord. Put your trust in Him and never give up hope.
There will be days as a survivor when this feels impossible. It’s ok to be discouraged, but don’t linger there. How you handle your circumstances shapes your character. Your cup is either half empty or half full. It’s all in how you choose to see it. Don’t let worry or fear steal your joy. Listen for God’s Word. The Lord kept planting Joshua 1:9 in me, “Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go.”
3. Have a grateful heart.
Find something to be grateful for each day. Being grateful helps cultivate a positive outlook, which I believe is healing. I’m not grateful for breast cancer, but I am grateful for the relationships that have developed as a result. I’ve met people who have enriched my life immeasurably that I may never have known without cancer.
Be grateful for the beauty in everyday life: the smell of rain, a brilliant sunset, the first signs of spring. Celebrate survivor milestones. Create a gratitude journal to capture your positive affirmations and reinforce an attitude of gratitude. Claim it by writing it down.
Some days are difficult as a cancer survivor. We feel physically and emotionally fragile. These are the days that I turn to God’s Word. One of my favorite devotionals is Jesus Calling by Sarah Young. It always speaks to me and calms my spirit, giving me great peace. I am most grateful for my personal relationship with God, I have been growing in faith exponentially through my cancer journey. It’s not something easy to define, but when I feel His presence I am not afraid.
4. Faith over fear.
I can waste a lot of my life worrying. It’s a life skill I’ve developed, and I’m really good at it. I have found that with a little practice (OK, a lot of practice), I can overcome fear with faith. By choosing to immerse myself in God’s promises instead of worrying about things beyond my control, I live a fuller, happier life.
Fear can be an insurmountable burden for cancer survivors. Fear of pain, death, recurrence, financial strain, and fear of the unknown are all common concerns. I’ve learned that our lives move in the direction of our strongest thoughts. Face fear head-on and conquer it with your faith in Jesus Christ.
My worst fear with cancer is dying and leaving my husband without a wife and my children without a mother. The reality is that we are all going to die at some point, whether it’s from cancer or something else. If you believe in heaven, then death is not something to fear. My pastor always says the resurrection means the worst thing is never the last thing. Death isn’t the last thing. Because Jesus died on the cross for us, the best thing is the last thing. Even if cancer takes my life, I will be reunited with my family in heaven, where there is no pain and everyone is cancer-free. Fear disappears when you know the end of the story.
During treatment, I needed something to keep me from feeling overwhelmed. The thought of so many appointments, tests, and treatments felt unbearable. To help me focus on one day at a time, my sister-in-law created a chemo checklist that I could check off after each cancer treatment. There was something so gratifying about checking the “done” box after each treatment. My chemo chart referenced a powerful verse from Scripture for each treatment. I leaned into these verses in my weakness and they gave me great hope and strength.
Here are a few of my personal favorites; may they bless you as they did me:
“Faith; it does not make things easy, it makes them possible” (Luke 1:37)
“He gives power to the faint, and to him who has no might, he increases strength” (Isaiah 40:29)
“I will strengthen you and help you. I will uphold you with my righteous hand” (Isaiah 41:10)
“The Lord will fight for you. You need only to be still” (Exodus 14:14)
“I have heard your prayer and seen your tears, I will heal you!” (2 Kings 20:5)
5. Accept help and share your gifts.
Cancer is a marathon, not a sprint. It takes a great deal of endurance and perseverance to get through it, and there’s no conditioning that prepares you mentally or physically. Let others help you. Accepting help is not a sign of weakness. Don’t try to be a hero and do all things on your own. It will hinder your healing. Cancer is hard. Friends and family want to help. They feel helpless because they can’t take away your cancer. Their hearts hurt for you and it is healing for them to be able to do something helpful: provide a meal, water your plants, walk your dog, etc. People are blessed by helping you. Tell them what you need, don’t assume they know.
I believe God provides armor bearers to carry us through difficulties. They come bearing movie tickets for your family, a hot meal, a warm blanket, flowers, snack baskets, smoothies, devotionals, magazines, healing hugs, encouraging words, and chemo charts. These are the people who love you through it. Listening when you need an ear, attending appointments, running errands, and letting you know how much they care.
When you feel up to it, be an armor bearer for someone else. Pay it forward by sharing your gifts. Nothing makes me feel better than doing something nice for someone else. It’s therapeutic and gets my mind off my own troubles. Cancer is scary. It’s reassuring to talk with someone who’s been there and knows the ropes. Your insight will be a huge blessing to others facing this disease.
If you don’t have a good support system, seek out local cancer support groups. Most offer free classes and you’ll meet other cancer survivors in your area. It’s good to talk with people who understand what you’ve been through. Good support groups to try are Gilda’s Club, Susan G. Komen, Livestrong, local churches, and hospitals.
We all know a few people who don’t know how to react or what to say when they see you. Their eyes wander to your bald head and they can’t look you in the eye or they say the wrong thing. Or worse, they go out of their way to avoid you because cancer makes them uncomfortable or they are afraid you might see them cry. They don’t realize that crying is ok, even healing. Don’t be angry or sad over people who can’t be there for you. Be forgiving; some people are natural caregivers, and others aren’t. Give grace to these people and love them anyway.
6. Take care of yourself.
Try to stay strong spiritually, mentally, and physically. I’m no fitness expert, but I believe a healthy body stands a better chance of fighting cancer. I can’t say that you’ll never get cancer again if you take care of yourself. Cancer doesn’t discriminate. It strikes all walks of life. I’m suggesting that you do what’s within reason for you. Treatment took the wind out of my sails. If I ever have to do it again, I want to be as physically strong as possible. At this point, I’m still recovering from round one with breast cancer, but I beat it and want to stay in the ring for however many rounds it takes to win.
Here’s a way to make it easier, and a rationale I can get behind. Suzanne Dixon MPH, MS, RD says we should look at our health as a bank account. We are constantly making deposits into our account that improve our health (eating fruits and vegetables, exercise, maintaining a healthy body weight); and making withdrawals for things that are not healthy (smoking, alcohol, stress, processed foods, not getting enough sleep). It’s all about balance. Enjoy your life and have an occasional glass of wine or decadent dessert, but build your health account balance by making more deposits than withdrawals.
I’ve changed my eating habits, made exercise and sleep a priority, and reduced my stress level. I’m selective and frugal when it comes to withdrawals. The indulgences I find worthy of withdrawal are the occasional glass of wine, grilled steak, and good chocolate. I can maintain a healthy balance by making deposits of good choices. I love to eat a variety of fruits and vegetables and enjoy walking with my friends, which reduces stress by being social.
Here are some excellent resources for information on survivor health: American Institute for Cancer Research (AICR), The International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC), Julie Langford MPH, RD, CSO, LDN ( cancer dietitian), and Suzanne Dixon MPH, MS, RD ( epidemiologist and registered dietitian).
Cancer can seem like a Goliath: intimidating, overwhelming, and impossible to conquer. David faced the giant without fear because he had faith that the Lord would give him the strength to defeat Goliath. A friend shared a card with me that says, “God is our refuge and strength, a help always near in times of great trouble. That’s why we won’t be afraid when the world falls apart” (Psalm 46:1-2). On the other side, the card says, “God won’t give you more than you can handle.” These words were crossed out and replaced with the words, “God will help you handle all that you’ve been given.” God didn’t give me cancer, but He’s most certainly helping me through it.
If you are a cancer survivor, care for a survivor, or are someone challenged by your circumstances and looking for hope and peace, approach each day with a joyful heart and positive attitude. Be grateful for what God has provided and choose faith over fear. Know your limitations and accept help from others, and share your gifts with those in need. Take care of yourself by filling your health account and be ever mindful that you are a Survivor. You’ve been given a second chance, so live your life to the fullest and enjoy each day.
