Have you ever wondered what you could do if you did not have to go to work? Are you unsatisfied with your job or your employer? Sometimes we need to “dump the trash” to make room for new opportunities. So many of us get caught in the daily grind, and we forget what is important to us. Our happiness is just as important if not more important than our finances.

Assess Your Situation

Are you unhappy when you come home from work? If you are, try to understand why you feel the way you do after a day of work. Do you feel passionate about your work? Do you think you could be happier doing something else? Are you making enough money? If you are not passionate about what you are doing in your current profession, it can often mean it is time to start exploring other options.

Dream Big

Too often people do not let themselves dream. They do not want to be unrealistic. What would make you happy? If you have been tied down by the same job for a while you realize how important a change can be for a person.  Allow yourself to explore all options and interests. Perhaps you want a job in a similar field, or maybe you want to change professions completely. It is okay to stay in the same job field, but it is also completely natural to want to explore new opportunities. What would you like to spend the next few years doing? Maybe you have a particular hobby you enjoy doing, and perhaps you would like to do something related to that. Leer más “Why Quitting Your Job Might Not Be a Bad Idea”

The game is over. That game where they get to hire you for 40 years, pay you far less than you create, and then give you a gold watch, and then you get bored, you get depressed, and you die alone.

It wasn’t that fun of a game anyway.

When I had a corporate job I would wake up depressed. I couldn’t move out of bed. The sun would be coming in. A cat on the fire escape staring at me through the window. Even it was more excited to be alive than me. And, by the way, I had the best job in the world. I interviewed prostitutes for a living at three in the morning.

But they were going to kill me in my cubicle.

In 2009 I asked about 10 Fortune 500 CEOs, “did you just use this crisis as an excuse to fire all the people you were afraid to fire before.” Only one said “of course” instantly. The others had to drink more. But then it was admitted: you’re all dead weight and there’s no loyalty.

We’ve entered the “Choose Yourself” era. The era without middlemen. Without The Other telling you your bonus, your salary, your movie can be made, your book published, your company funded, your life validated. The era where you have to always be planning your escape. Where you create your platforms on twitter, facebook, quora, pinterest, blogging, vlogging, itunes, and wherever else and every day you Create and you Innovate and you Sell for yourself. You Eat what you Kill. And your rewards are commensurate with how sharp your teeth are.
