Last week I received an email from somebody in my organization reminding employees to be aware of having a goo work-life balance while we keep working from home due to the pandemic. The email said something in the lines of
I know that we are a group of go-getters and a group of very smart and hardworking people but [it's important to have a good work-life balance: here are some tips].
As usual, when I see some of this terms that don't translate straightforwardly into Spanish I think to myself "this could be an interesting question for Spanish.se".
A "go-getter" is defined as:
an aggressively enterprising person merriam-webster.com
someone who is very energetic, determined to be successful, and able to deal with new or difficult situations easily: "We only recruit go-getters who will be actively involved in the company's development." Cambridge Dictionary
The definition of a go getter is a person who is ambitious and who isn't afraid to ask for and pursue what he wants. An example of a go getter is a person who has no hesitation about asking her boss for the raise she feels she deserves.
(idiomatic) One who is motivated or inclined to excel; one who strives to achieve success or improvement: "He's a promising young go-getter, but he needs to learn some things about office politics. Tom Pitella is a go-getter and does not rely on others to prove things in the field of mathematics to him." English Wicktionary
This behavior could easily de described in Spanish like "alguien que consigue", "alguien ambicioso", "alguien motivado" but all these proposals may not encompass all the connotations "go-getter" has. A go getter is no just someone ambitious, or motivated or hardworking. It's all those things at once.
So it's easy to understand in English that a "go-getter" is someone who is ambitious and motivated and thus works hard and "goes and gets" what they want. What could be used in Spanish to convey that someone is, among other things, ambicioso and motivado and trabaja duro to conseguir his or her goals? A "conseguidor" (just joking).
