I quit my job a few weeks ago to do, well, do things like this.
“You sure are lucky to be able to do that,” some person informed me.
Lucky? Hmm. I don’t recall winning any lottery. Didn’t cash in any outlandish stock options. Definitely no unexpected inheritance. Nope, can’t find anything lucky about it. Though I would surely take any of these occurrences if they came along.
And it’s not because I’m brilliant. If I was so brilliant, I wouldn’t have been working at a job I wanted to get out of. It was a good job, with good people.
I don’t even have a plan for world domination: no product or invention that will make a million. Well, maybe I do have some thoughts about world domination, just no plan. But that is a different post.
For me world domination is about fulfillment, my fulfillment. I know, I know. That’s pretty selfish. But in my defense, I will be able to bring much more positivity to the world if I also have positivity in me.
But back to the question of being lucky, or how I quit my job in two easy steps. OK, so there aren’t two EASY steps. But there are two distinct activities that occurred.
First, the envisioning. I envisioned getting out and doing something. It doesn’t matter what. Just a goal. Nothing too detailed since it ultimately won’t be exactly what you think it will be anyway (no use in mapping sand dunes).
Second, the little choices. The thousands of little choices that will take you there, some will be bigger than others for sure. There is no big decision though (except for the envisioning), no cataclysmic event. Well, there will be a cataclysmic event. You just don’t know what it will be and when it will occur. And that’s OK.
So you ask, what are these little choices? Well, that is a matter for another post. Perhaps your next little choice will be to come back and find out.
