The Go-Getter


One of the simplest descriptions of a person that an employer will look to hire is; a go-getter.

What is a go-getter? What do they look like?

If you’ve ever sat in a job interview worth sitting in, you’ve been asked the question; “are you a go-getter?” Undoubtedly, you answered yes, like me! Were we being honest, or were we just trying to land a job only to settle back into a rut of mundaneness?

When I looked for the definition of a go-getter, the word most closely associated with the term was, an “enterprising” person. Here’s the definition;




1. ready to undertake projects of importance or difficulty, or untried schemes; energetic in carrying out any undertaking.
2. characterized by great imagination or initiative.

I put the important words in bold; ready, imaginative, and initiative. To put this  in layman’s terms; A go-getter is someone that doesn’t wait for life to come to them, they go out and grab it! What do you want today? Go out there and make it happen! What about this weekend; what kind of strides would you like to see take place? Do it!

Chances are there are things that you want in life and are doing little to nothing about. Paul says it this way, encouraging the Ephesian Christians to walk like Christians, “Awake, sleeper, and rise from the dead, and Christ will shine on you.” (Eph 5:14)

Don’t let life just pass by today! Choose your battles, plan your victories, and don’t forget to smile.
