I did something yesterday that I have both dreamed about and worried about – I quit a very good job with an extraordinarily successful company. Sounds crazy, right?
I know it was the right thing to do because, since the moment I hit “send” on my official resignation notice, I’ve been enveloped in a really unusual sense of peace.
Following one’s gut instinct is important, but I doubt many people really do. I know I haven’t, at least not up until the last couple of weeks. I am the first to tell others to listen to their intuition, but rarely take my own advice. I have to say, it feels really good to make decisions that my long-ignored gut has been screaming about.
Leaving my current employer is just the first of many changes I’m making. It is probably
the most radical. I have worked in an office environment of some kind since I was 16, only ever taking time off to have my kids and a 30 day window after I was laid off in 2001.
Things are changing rapidly in my world and I am ready.
