It’s been nearly a year and a half since I walked out of my classroom, turned out the lights, and never looked back.
Since quitting my very stable teaching job (yes, in this economy), my life has blossomed in some major ways.
I’ve put some stamps in my passport, I learned how to ride a motorcycle, been published in print magazines here in the U.S. and abroad, and founded the #GOALdiggers Project to inspire and connect with other go-getters from around the globe.
To say that I’ve been blessed would be an understatement, but I’m SO excited about all of the new things to come.
Because of my amazing year, and the fact that I talk pretty regularly about it, I get asked about quitting my job a lot: How to do it, when is it time to throw in the towel, and what to do when you just can’t take it anymore.
Instead of writing an extremely long blog post about it (you can read a similar one I wrote here just after quitting), I decided to do something different: record a video!
I plan to interact via video and live events more in the coming year, and this seemed like the perfect opportunity to connect in a new medium while tackling a subject many of you want to know more about.
In this 10-minute video I share four signs that indicate it’s time to quit your job and what you should do when you begin to feel the itch.
I’d love to hear your thoughts.
Are you thinking of quitting your job? Or have you quit? How did you know it was time to make a change?
