Be Wise, Change Your Own Situation. That Will Change The World.

I can’t stand the work, my boss, or the company. It would take up several pages for me to really go into all the details. I’m underappreciated, underpaid, and sick of it!  ~Worker Living in GEORGIA You are reading from the book “Just Quit” & Live We all just want to be appreciated, valued and heard. We want our ideas to matter. We want to know that we are contributing and we want our time to be useful.    We know when we are not being appreciated and at some point in time we just get sick of it. Sick of being…

Just Quit Means You HAVE To Face Your Fears

I drive 120 miles a day round trip. I dread every mile. I get quilted out of taking my lunch breaks on a near daily basis. I feel sick with dread and stress and truly fear for my health. The money doesn’t justify the expense of my commute and child care costs.  ~Worker Living in GEORGIA Dread and stress are a terrible combination but they go together like a hand and glove. Dread is just another word for fear.  Fear will keep us small. Fear will keep us driving 120 miles round trip.  Fear will keep us feeling guilty. We…

We Have The Freedom To Choose – Staying Misaligned Or Getting In Alignment

My values do not align with the GM or other top managers in the company. The willingness to change our corporate culture to become a better company is not even a consideration because they need to keep selling. Our customers think poorly of our company and nothing is done to address the root cause of those complaints. A discount is given and they stop complaining. Anxiety is constant even on weekends when I cannot stop thinking about everything.  I am already behind on next week. They are forcing me to fire people in my department and not understanding that we…

Be Honest With Yourself About Your Job

I dislike what I do. I chose my profession as the backup to the career I really wanted. I have not moved into the career that I wanted and my chosen career takes all my time. Every day, I wake up depressed about going into my job. I even cry in the shower and the car on the way to work. I am so emotionally drained from the work week; I don’t have any energy to pursue my passions. I shy away from friends and family because I don’t want to talk about my job, and perhaps show how depressed…

It’s Labor Day 2014 – A Great Day For A BreakThrough

SEPTEMBER The shell must break before the bird can fly. ~ Alfred Tennyson   I’m at a glass ceiling. The job is boring. They have not had a raise in five years at this company. I feel that life is passing me by. ~Worker Living in GEORGIA We need to breakthrough. It’s not about the glass ceilings that companies or organizations erect; but the ones that we erect in our own minds. It starts with the broken record of negative thoughts that swirl around in our minds about our situation, about the possibilities, about our dashed dreams, about the useless degree, about…

7 Eleven Coffee Cup…If You Know What You Want, It’s Already There

My stress level is beyond healthy and I no longer want responsibility. ~Worker Living in GEORGIA Sometimes we’ve had enough responsibility. We’ve had enough meetings. We’ve had enough company problems. We know what we want…no more responsibility for this or for that. We want some downtime. We want to just be responsible for ourselves and our family stuff. P.S. What do you want? I’ll never ever forget an object lesson that my father taught me.   It was 1991 and I had just graduated with my undergraduate degree.  I had decided not to relocate with Hoechst Celeanse and to finish…
