Move Forward. Cross the Monkey Bars.

monkey bars

I feel like the job I’m doing now is not taking me anywhere.  It frustrates me always. I think it is time to let go and move forward.      ~Worker Living in VIRGINIA We cannot move forward until we let go.  Once we let go (of holding on) then we can let come the future that is waiting for us. Today ask yourself: “What exactly am I holding on to?” Hint:  If you feel stuck, depressed, frustrated, ect…then you are holding onto something. Are you afraid of letting that something go? Now ask: “What am I afraid of?” You are reading…


Another “Just Quit” Story…People Are Waking Up All Over The World…

be true

The below survey entry came in yesterday, September 12, 2014. It is not in the book, but I wanted to honor this person’s request to tell their story to the world.  Here you go: *I already quit my job, and just wanted to take the survey and tell someone else my story* I was physically in pain everyday. I worked for them for 2 years and suffered through back to back groin sprains, stiff fingers that couldn’t bend to touch my palms in the morning, swollen feet after work, bruising on my legs, scratches up and down my arms, exhaustion,…


Feeling Like A Fish Out of Water? STOP Trying To Be A Fish.

Stop Trying To Be A Fish

I start to panic on Sunday evening when I think about going to work on Monday. I stay up as late as possible to postpone the inevitable. I feel like a fish out of water at my job.

I truly don’t want to do anything in the evenings or weekends because I’m just so exhausted from my job. ~Worker Living in OHIO After we make our list of why we think we need to…


Why Are You Here? What Are You Suppose To Be Doing With Your Life?


I don’t enjoy what I do and need the time and stress-free experience to find out what I truly want to do.

Stop Crawling. Stop Cocooning. Start Flying.


I am tired of getting up at 5:15 every weekday. I spend two hours a day on the road. I do not have support of administration in trying to do my best to educate students.

We will not be afraid of a change. We are ready…


Having A Strategy


I’m not inspired by what I’m doing. I’m working very hard and achieving nothing.  I don’t agree with the strategy or lack of strategy of the work and how it has been put together.  The company has no strong work ethic ethos, and lots of people doing the bare minimum.  There is no transparency in pay and often projects are under resourced meaning that we fail to deliver quality work on time. ~Worker Living in the UNITED KINGDOM How many of the places where we work have well-thought out AND COMMUNICATED strategies?   Not Many. We all know this, and we…
