So many of us have been there: day in and day out, you’re no longer passionate about what it is you do for work. You’re dreaming, you’re thinking, and you feel ready to make the next big move for your career. Is it time to quit your day job?
No, it’s not. At least, not without a plan.
If this sounds like you, here’s my recommendation: tomorrow morning, wake up and do something called the ‘morning pages.’ Grab a pen and notebook and start writing down all the things you’re passionate about, the things you’re good at, and the things that make you money.
Read what you wrote and think about it for a while. What’s the common thread? Where’s the intersection of your passion, your skills, and what makes money?
Once you find that focus, I’d recommend looking into coaching or a course to guide you and hold you accountable to that path. Then, maybe, you can start thinking about whether or not quitting your day job is right for you.
It’s tempting to hit a boiling point when your life isn’t fulfilling any longer and quit your day job. I would caution you to secure an “ace in the hole” first.
.The goal is for you to be fulfilled and not stressed because you abandoned your primary income source. You must have a plan.
In this video, I’ll break down a few do’s and don’ts when it comes to living your dream life. Let me know what you think.
