How To Succeed At Quitting
Alex Holder, advertising creative and author, wrote an article entitled 'The Joy Of Quitting' (you can read it here).
In addition to that, she wrote 6 simple rules to follow to ensure you leave empowered.
Be realistic, plan and prioritise. Don’t quit everything at once.
Start small and think, ‘Do I want to be doing this next year?’ If the answer is no, work out what you need to do between now and then to get out.
Be selfish. It’s your life.
Project yourself into the future, think about the person you want to be in 10 years’ time. Is what you’re doing now going to get you there? If not, quit!
Do what makes you happy, not what other people expect you to do.
Don’t spend years in limbo. Be decisive.
