Do you ever say, “How am I going to get a job if I don’t know how to do anything?” or “I have a degree but I don’t know how to do anything, why?” Who knows how many times you have thought that you should have listened to your parents and that if you had done so, you would now have a serious, well-paid job?
Maybe you have mulled over, “I’m 30 years old and I don’t know how to do anything”, or sometimes you have said, ‘I don’t like my job; how can I change it? ‘ What if I told you that you can work comfortably and be emotionally and financially satisfied even if you don’t know how to do anything now?
This is no joke, quite the contrary. Over the past few years, we have become more and more immersed in digital, thus creating new jobs that are quite different from the ones we are used to. Sometimes, it’s okay to admit, ‘I don’t know how to do anything,’ and embrace the learning journey.
To find employment nowadays, it is not important that you have studied for 20 years or that you have a degree; you just have to have the right skills, the ones that make you unique and indispensable, nothing more. Struggling with self-doubt? Remember, everyone starts with ‘I don’t know how to do anything’ and grows from there.
So no more phrases like “I want to work but I don’t know how to do anything.” If you are interested in discovering the new jobs of the future, take a look at the Certifications for New Digital Professions offered by Digital Coach.
In this article, I will explain how to make a radical change in your life in four steps. In order to do this, however, we must start with you understanding who you are and what you want!
I don’t know how to do anything. Why?
If you’re reading this article, it’s because at this moment in your life you think you don’t know how to do anything and feel unfulfilled and without a talent, right?
Of course, having some sort of talent helps you choose one path rather than another much more easily without thinking too hard, but not everyone is born with a talent. When faced with a new challenge, it’s common to think, ‘I don’t know how to do anything,’ but that’s where growth begins. However, that doesn’t mean you don’t possess one.
There are plenty of people who think they can’t do anything; some of them are right to think so, but others are not, because, in reality, they are simply underestimating themselves. By underestimating oneself, however, one gets stuck in a perpetual state of indecision that does not help one grow. On the contrary, it increases within oneself that feeling of not being adequate, of not being able to be useful for anything.
Embracing the mindset of ‘I don’t know how to do anything’ opens the door to endless possibilities and learning opportunities. What you need to start doing is to stop thinking, I don’t know how to do anything,” and push people away when they tell you that you don’t know how to do anything because what you don’t know how to do, you can always learn!
There are three groups of people in the world:
- those who have a talent,
- those who do not possess talent but have a great desire to get involved;
- those who have no talent, don’t want to do anything and don’t want to get involved.
Certainly, if you are here, it means that you do not fall into the latter group; only those who do not know and do not want to learn to stay put.
Knowing yourself and what your strengths and weaknesses are is the first step in understanding what you are suited for and what work environment you are inclined towards. Remember: do what you are passionate about, because only in this way will you always get the best out of a job. When you do something you enjoy, you are encouraged to put 100 percent of yourself into achieving the goal. If you find yourself saying, ‘I don’t know how to do anything,’ it’s a sign that you’re ready to explore and expand your skills.

How to get a job if you can’t do anything
At least once in your life, you will be faced with a crossroads and have to make a choice. It is precisely these moments that challenge our certainties, such as the loss of a job or the end of a school career.
It is normal to have moments when we feel lost and full of doubt. Ever since we were little, very high expectations have been placed on us by family members because this is how society wants it, and not wanting to disappoint them often leads to getting stuck in uncomfortable situations.
This is only because we want the approval and praise of others without really thinking about what we really want.
Finding employment means feeling fulfilled, but finding the right one is important in order to be happy, as it is where you spend most of your day. So it is very important to find the right occupation for you in order to have a happy and fulfilled life. Instead of feeling discouraged by saying, ‘I don’t know how to do anything,’ use it as motivation to embark on a journey of discovery.
But, then, how do you work out which is the right path to take? How do you figure out which job to take? I am sure that over the years, you have thought, “I don’t know how to do anything; what job can I do? “You have surfed through thousands of sites and forums looking for the most suitable path for you. Sure, sometimes seeing how other people have done it to get inspiration is a good practice, but not the first thing to do.
One must proceed in small steps and start with a self-analysis:
- identify your interests and hobbies
- discover your personality
- find your aptitudes
- Set yourself real goals.
Once you have put all these points down on paper, you need to start assessing which jobs are most suitable for you. One suggestion, which in my opinion is very useful, is not to look for a possible path in the “safe” jobs—the ones your mother, uncle, or any other relative or acquaintance does. By now, the planet is evolving, and with it, jobs.
Specializing in Digital Marketing
As I mentioned at the beginning, the more the year’s progress, the more crucial the digital world becomes.
It is only through digitization that one can increase the chances of making a product known to as many people as possible, and it is thanks to the online world that professionals have changed and increased.
There is a huge demand for alternative internet-based professions that are suitable for everyone. So, don’t be afraid if you can’t do anything; if you want to find a job, you can!

In the online field, it is not important that you already have skills. If you don’t have any yet, you can easily retrain yourself professionally through highly professionalized courses that enable you to acquire skills previously unthinkable for you.

Promote yourself for employment.
When you say, “I don’t know how to do anything,” it’s an invitation to explore and learn, leading to personal growth and accomplishment. Well, you now realize that you have the opportunity to go from “I don’t know how to do anything“ to “I can get professional skills”. But it is important that you know that in order to get a job, it is not only important to ‘know how to do’ but also to ‘know how to sell’!
Knowing how to get noticed online has become indispensable for getting hired. To be able to do this, one must take care of a few things:
- develop a good personal branding strategy; it will help you make your potential customers, recruiters, or companies understand what you can do, how you can do it, and why you can do it. In order to devise the best personal branding strategy, I advise you to fully understand how your work makes you useful and makes life easier for others; only then will you be able to communicate it in the best possible way.
- Create your curriculum on LinkedIn; having a profile on this social platform gives you access to great career opportunities. However, it must be used professionally and competently. Having a curated LinkedIn profile is indispensable nowadays; most recruiters consult LinkedIn to schedule an interview.
- Networking: being able to create a network of contacts allows you to increase the number of acquaintances and turn them into potential customers or partners. In addition, it gives you the opportunity to engage with people who are different from you.
- use Job Portals to find job opportunities and understand what companies are looking for; surfing these sites can be very useful.
Open your own business.
If, after careful self-analysis, you realize that the idea of having to work for someone else does not really appeal to you, you can always consider the option of setting up your own business. This means doing a job without constraints imposed by others. Often, however, those who want to set up their own business abandon the project before they even start. This happens because they are afraid of failure or of not knowing how to do anything and therefore not being up to the task.
That is not the right attitude! If, in analyzing yourself, you have come to the conclusion that you want to be self-employed, don’t be afraid; don’t waste too much time thinking about it. To become self-employed, you have to be brave and determined.
After you have found a concrete business idea, evaluate your budget. If you do not already have the cash available, you can always use state, regional, world, or private subsidies. Note, however, that in the digital world, it is not necessary to have a large fund to be able to start a business.
If you want to make a change in your life and become self-employed, don’t miss the opportunity that Digital Coach offers you: a free online self-employment course. Thanks to this course, you will be able to choose from eight (8) business ideas:
