Time to Pursue Meaningful Labor

20150517_003910

I recently added a question to the survey.  Originally I did not want to be too intrusive, but was curious what people did/where they worked.  At the very end of this blog post are some of the answers to that question.  As I move back to “really” blogging and not just reviewing the book by blogging the daily entries it has occurred to me that creating art is meaningful labor to me.  It is art show season so for the next 4-5 months my weekends will be filled with either creating art or setting up at art shows.  The last couple…

Finally Finished Blogging The Book

Finished

After six months of writing the book and one year of blogging the book below is what I learned: You can do anything you set your mind to do. Making a commitment and fulfilling it no matter if it is only to yourself requires determination and grit.  Having a cause that you care about in this world gives your life meaning. Helping other people is what living a good life is really all about. Don’t expect everybody to understand what you’re doing and why you’re doing it. Continue to stay the course no matter how much it appears that nothing…

I want to write graphic novels and scripts and paint portraits and write stories. ~Worker Living in CANADA You are reading from the book “Just Quit” & Live   Today, starting today, while you are still working your job do the things you KNOW you want to do.  If it is to write graphic novels: write one line of a graphic novel.  If it is writing scripts: write one line for a new script.  If it is to paint portraits: start painting a portrait.  Today START moving towards what your heart, mind and soul is telling you that you were born…

Go Through The Pain. Get Something Out Of This. Move Towards Your Life’s Work.

Going Through the Pain

I dunno how to do my job. I have been thinking of quitting since a month ago. I feel many things are going wrong and I have no idea how to solve them. My memory really sucks. ~Worker Living in SINGAPORE You are reading from the book “Just Quit” & Live   A poorly fit job can make us feel inadequate.  We can’t remember things.  We can’t make sense out of things, but we are not dumb. We are brilliant. We are geniuses.  We need to find where we fit and where our brilliance and genius can be realized. We are…

Ask. Ask. Ask. Open Your Mouth. Say It Outloud.

ask

I am currently fed up with my job. I actually hate it. I wake up in the morning to go to work and I feel depressed. This has been happening for more than a year. I find it totally non challenging and I am forced to be here every day, cause I kind of think it’s dangerous to quit your job nowadays in the middle of the economical crisis. I have been searching for a job for a long time, but I can’t find anything that interests me. ~Worker Living in GERMANY You are reading from the book “Just Quit” &…

Your Life Is A Story. Start A New Chapter. Create A Happy Ending.

Change The Story

I’m not happy working 8-5 jobs anymore. I feel trapped and disgruntled.  I feel I can do better self- employed than working for someone. ~Worker Living in BOTSWANA You are reading from the book “Just Quit” & Live   Today, recognize if you feel trapped.  If so: Your mind is telling you that “you’re stuck”, “can’t change”, “can’t leave”, or “can’t make enough money doing your own thing”.  If you WANT to leave and be self-employed then you can. Change the conversation in your mind and start thinking about HOW and WHEN you can leave; and HOW and WHEN you can…
