Take Off Your Mask


Leaving the library to get Zen Master Thich Nhat Hanh’s The Miracle of Mindfulness book I looked to my left and saw an art gallery that was new.  It was pouring down raining, but I circled back around and decided to check it out. What a find it was.  Beautiful gallery, shop, artwork and owner. The below is a piece that I brought.  He called it ZERO, because that is how the artist was feeling in his job. He was smiling on the outside but miserable inside. If you look closely you will see the Zero on his chest, and…


Why Not Basic Income?

Basic Income Day

“It’s something new…That will never happen…We’ve never done anything like that before…People need to work…People will be lazy…You shouldn’t get anything for free.”  On and on it goes…. If I did not get survey entries DAILY from people SUFFERING in jobs for one reason or another I would not know the extent of the problem. People want to be creative and productive. They want to be happy.  They want to just  live.  They want to see their families. They want to use their greatest talents and skills. Mostly people just want to do something they love doing AND be –…


Just Quit is Possible…Really It Is…

DO that

…not tomorrow…or next week…you CAN Just Quit today if you want to. Just Quit thinking it’s hopeless. It’s not.  Just Quit thinking it’s about money in the bank…nope…it’s about ALL available sources of money. You might have to cash it out…vacation, 401K, the house, stuff (or junk) you don’t need; stop buying (or charging) more junk you don’t need; stop going to get $7 Latte’s; stop giving your money to a “church” that wouldn’t give you or a needy person a dime if they needed it (the truth hurts); and a bunch of other stuff we do just because that’s what…


The Human Economy Is Coming

Adaptable Mind

For those who want to “Just Quit” their jobs, don’t fret.  You are AHEAD of others who are settling, those who are just going thru the motions or pretending.  This morning I heard Tiffany Shlain talk about Growing Up the Internet and it was like the cacophony of noise in my head turned into a melody.  I realized that this segment of the working world population (those who find my blog) want something more, and below is what they crave…the something more…  SOMETHING MORE: Stop complaining, right now and today.  This moment.  STOP COMPLAINING. STOP FRETTING about how much you…


What is Mental Slavery?

Mental Slavery

The below comment came in this weekend from someone who works in Ad Sales for a Magazine: “I feel like a mental slave every day. My ancestors were slaves, fought for their freedom, and now I am letting myself get trapped into legal and socially acceptable slavery.” Mental Slavery: What a concept. Many workers aren’t working in physically exhausting jobs, but are mentally exhausted.  Just googling mental slavery was interesting. Letting yourself get trapped:  The first step to getting unstuck is to admit that you are stuck and feel like a slave. You can then do something about it. Legal…


Share the Wealth With Basic Income

We Rule You

With a basic income those who want to “Just Quit” could. Monthly Income With this income you could pay off your debt and start saving to have six months of expenses so you could move on from a job making you mentally and physically ill. Yes, it’s political (because it’s about who gets the money), but it’s practical (give the money to the people). The more I study it the more it makes sense. At The Bottom This is an image that I CAN NOT get out of my head. It haunting to me. Haunting. It’s all those people at…


4th Industrial Revolution – The Human Impact

4th Industrial Revolution

I will begin tweeting some survey results. I will not be able to tweet every survey entry because there are too many. We currently have over 7,500 entries from 117 countries. I want the world to understand that folks who want to “Just Quit” their jobs are NOT crazy, they are NOT lazy, and they are NOT quitters.  They are innovators, they are brave, they are honest and they are ahead of the pack. Something dramatic is happening in the world work as we move into the 4th Industrial Revolution and people worldwide are feeling the pain of these changes….
