“I Wish I Woulda Worked My Just Quit Plan When I Stumpled On That Website That Day!” ~Your Future Self 10 Years From Now

I want to find my bliss. I know I will never be happy doing what I’m doing now. I want to pursue my passions full-time, because I know how they make me feel compared to what I do now! Even with the extra raise I’ve earned at my job, it’s not worth my happiness.       ~Worker Living in PENNSYLVANIA You are reading from the book “Just Quit” & Live Knowing that burning feeling of pursuing our passions is what “Just Quit” is about.  Knowing how it feels to jump out of bed.

Wisdom Is Knowing The Right Path To Take…Integrity Is Taking It

It’s a telemarketing job. I really just started, but I feel like a horrible person by bugging people all day. It’s making me feel like the most annoying person ever even though I’m technically a robot. I have ringing in my ears from having headphones on constantly and I’m not even doing what my boss says really. When someone tells me to take them off the list of people we call, I tell them “no problem!” and do so immediately. They always seem much friendlier that way. I mean the customer is always right I thought, but technically we aren’t…

Dancing Towards The Sunlight

I used to really like my job at the local phone company…I started working there in my 20s; great salary, union job with benefits. Over the past 26 years the company has become so corporate with its mergers and micromanaging. The stress is unreasonable and now with the new monitoring equipment, every key stroke is looked at. Working in an environment that fosters creativity is no longer an option; you are just a number and are never heard. Bottom line is I hate my job. HATE with a passion.  I leave work and my shoulders are so tight because I…

Lose and Find Yourself In The Things That You Love

Take A Stand For Yourself For A Change

I wake up every day and wonder if this is all there is. I don’t believe I am doing the public any good. My company is purely driven by profit and I am not that type of person. I truly want to do something to better the world. My boss, though not a terrible person, buys into the corporate jargon. I care about people and all I do is determine who to cut. It is truly depressing. ~Worker Living in PENNSYLVANIA Today, take a stand.  Take a stand for SOMETHING you believe in. It doesn’t matter what that SOMETHING is,…

Don’t Give Up. Just Hold On. Hold On To Hope. Hope That 2015 Will Be A Good Year.

I’ve been working my butt off for almost nine years and have never gotten a promotion. I don’t make enough each month to do anything extra because I’m a single mom who just got her daughter through college and another one in Cosmetology School. I have racked up $52,000 in parent plus loans. I’m frustrated that in order to buy Christmas gifts this year I had to use credit cards and know that I will struggle for another 6 months next year to pay them off. I never am able to go out to dinner. I never am able to…

Think You Made A Mistake Taking Your Job? Remedy It.

I’m miserable here. I’m being pushed very hard to do things that I don’t think I really know how to do and that are increasingly outside of the kind of work that I want to do. The workplace demands a deep, personal commitment to the job – they want this to be a like my life’s mission and not just a job. I understand and support the organizational mission. I think the goals are worthy. However, this will NEVER be more than a job to me. My performance is starting to slide, and I just don’t know how much longer…
