Why “I Don’t Have enough Experience” is a Lame Excuse

Why “I Don’t Have enough Experience” is a Lame Excuse, Ajinkya Patale

How many times have you heard someone say they can’t do something because they don’t have enough experience? I’m willing to bet it’s more times than you can count. And, I’m also willing to bet that the vast majority of those people are just making excuses. You see, the truth is that most “experience” is nothing more than acquired skills and knowledge. And, both of those things can be attained without working in a related field for years on end.

In other words, if you want to achieve something, stop using the “I don’t have enough experience” excuse and start taking actionable steps to acquire the skills and knowledge you need. I promise you, it’s not as hard as you think. Here are three simple tips to get you started.

1. Join or Start a Local Group or Organization Related to Your Goal

Nothing gives you practical experience quite like actually doing something. If your goal is to start a business, for example, join your local chamber of commerce or start a meetup group for entrepreneurs in your area. If you want to transition into a new career, look for groups or organizations related to that field and get involved. Attend events, volunteer your time, and network with others who are passionate about the same thing you are. Not only will this give you valuable experience, but it will also help you build relationships with people who can help further your career goals.

2. Take an Online Course or Obtain Certification in Your Desired Field

If there’s one thing the internet has made abundantly clear, it’s that there is no shortage of courses and certifications available on just about every topic imaginable—and many of them are free! So, if you’re looking to gain some formal experience in your desired field, take advantage of the vast array of online resources available and sign up for a few courses. Not only will this add some heft to your resume, but it will also give you a chance to try out different aspects of your desired profession and see if it’s really the right fit for you. 

Who knows, you may find that what you thought you wanted isn’t really what you’re looking for after all! And that’s OK—better to find out now than after years spent working in a job you hate.

3. Get a Job in a Related Field (or Start Your Own Business)

Once again, there’s no substitute for actual hands-on experience when it comes to achieving your career goals. So, if at all possible, try to land a job in a related field or start your own business related to your goal. This will give you the opportunity to learn new skills and put them into practice on a daily basis—something no online course or certification can ever replicate. Even if the job or business isn’t exactly what you want to be doing long-term, it will still give you invaluable experience that will help further your career goals down the road.
