If You’re Going Thru Hell, Keep Going. ~Churchill

My job is unfulfilling. I say that and sometimes people nod in recognition, and even scoff because “that’s what work is” to millions, so I should stop my sniveling. I thought I could do a boring 9-5 if I got paid decently, but within months I realized that I was so wrong. I sometimes just stare at my computer, at my cubicle, and wonder “how the hell am I going to get out?” ~Worker Living in CALIFORNIA You are reading from the book “Just Quit” & Live OUR jobs don’t have to be unfulfilling just because most people are unfulfilled in…

Have The Courage To Follow Your Talent Where It Leads

I am thinking about quitting my job without another one lined up because I really don’t want another “job.” I want to find out what I really want to do and what kind of lifestyle I want.

Feeling Like A Failure? GREAT. Join the Club. Now S-t-a-r-t Again.

I work over 12 hour days during the work week and still work on the weekends and I am still behind. Upper Management is now giving me attitude no matter what I tell them about the challenges and what I have done to try and overcome them.

No matter how much harder I try to catch up there is more workload coming at me. ~Worker Living in CALIFORNIA You are reading from the book “Just Quit” & Live Today, figure out EXACTLY how much time during the week that…

Will It Make The Boat Go Faster?

Work drains me of purpose, energy and enthusiasm. The owner is greedy and I will not be very successful financially if I keep working for him. Despite results widely considered as exceptional, an incredible work ethic and longevity, the owner is condescending, doesn’t respect time (late for every meeting), doesn’t listen (uh-huh, uh-huh…good, good). I have no faith that the owner can grow the company to position me for success. In essence, he will inhibit me from helping him grown the company.  He will not commit to basic principles like writing down a vision or establishing core values. I have…
