Wanting to “Just Quit” J-O-B-S

I happened to catch a documentary on PBS last week called Set For Life by Tree of Life Productions. It was about folks in middle age devastated by this last economic recession. As I watched I thought there could be a documentary/a play/something artsy of sorts about folks worldwide who are miserable in made-up j-o-b-s they want to “Just Quit”. Something tells me this journalist might be able to help me or know someone who will find useful the 9,500 stories from 126 countries I have been curating for the past four years. I keep this blog going because I…

Message to “This Little Piggy”

The below survey entry came in yesterday  – Way too much stress. Lack of direction. Not enough resources to complete project. Doubt anyone wants me there and I was told to find work elsewhere by a co-worker before I applied and I wish I would have left that position in good standing and never looked back. I took the job and I failed like I was told I would. My family considers me worthless now that I took a government job and probably disinherited me. Don’t be surprised if this little piggy goes to market and ends up in the…

Finally Finished Blogging The Book

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…

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

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.

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” &…
