Setting fantasy dream jobs and aspirations aside, the article “Know When To Quit, and When Not To” at LifeReboot.com takes a cut and dry view of the typical work market and shows that there are alternatives – no matter what you’ve been taught.
The article is a simple read. It won’t tell you how you should live or work, or tell you that if you follow a certain guideline – you will be happier or make more money. Instead, it gives you a real life example of someone who changed his own life by setting a goal he determined to be important to himself. It gives you an example not to follow, but to possibly learn from in your own terms.
Personally, I was raised during the times when parents taught their children that working hard in a stable position at a reputable company will give you the means to “live life”. Have a house, buy a car, raise a child, retire with your spouse, etc.
Unfortunately, that is old logic. Business does not work like that anymore. Instead of working for your family, you are working for the business at which you work. Your family and well being is not on any companies agenda – nor the governments agenda. You are simply a number, a means by which someone other than yourself or your family will reap the benefits from. Today’s world requires a different way of thinking. And this article just may inspire you to make the necessary changes in your life to move towards your goal. Or it may not, you be the judge.
