You’ve been daydreaming about writing that resignation letter.
You’ve even had afternoon fantasies about destroying that goddamn office printer that never seems to work.
Your D-day of declaring your freedom is definitely a glorious day to be had. So why haven’t you done the steps to get there?
Before you get hard on yourself and think you aren’t “good enough” to quit, I want to shed some light on three things that you need to know before you entertain the idea of quitting your 9-5.
Well, you gotta get clear about where you’ll ACTUALLY go if you were to quit, and be confident in making sure your basic needs are taken care of before you say “screw it!”.
Here are my 3 things to get clear with so that you can quit your job and start crafting your escape plan:
- What the heck do I do for a living if I quit?
- What is your break-even point for your finances?
- What’s the actual exchange you have to get serious about to prepare for quitting day?
Your escape plan can happen a lot faster than you think, if you do the work to carve out the map.
Nobody is going to be knocking on your door to say, “OK, here we go, it’s time to quit now and here are ALL the answers!”
You are responsible for finding out what you need to know, to give you the confidence to pursue the path less taken. Lucky for you, in the world we live in today, we have more access to tools, resources, and information like never before.
So all you have to do is move, one bite sized step at a time, and keep your eyes on the prize.
