If there are any of you out there who are hating your job...wondering what might be next...dying to take a leap but just unsure why/how/when/what, you really need to check out this article from the SF Gate about the silliness that has developed in our culture around the idea that we all must work so damn hard. It also offers up a pretty fab perspective on the idea of taking chances in our own lives and taking a look at all of the excuses and barriers we set up for ourselves to make sure we stay locked in the safe little "boxes" that have become our lives. I'd like to offer up a serious Amen to that one.
It's seriously scary business to take a huge risk in your life and abandon the safety and comfort of a steady paycheck and all the goodies that come along with it. So serious, in fact, that I've yet to do it. But reading this article reminded me exactly why, someday soon, somehow, some way, I'm going to take that leap and make it happen for myself. And dammit, if I can do it, than you can too. Hollah!
