I Quit, and I’m better for it.

Posted on: October 15, 2018
Recently, I received a message from a friend. It was a simple message.
“It’s been six months since I quit, and it’s the best thing I ever did!”
My friend was in a high-stress occupation six months ago. During the prior year we had talked many times about what he wanted in his life, where he wanted his life to go, and what he needed to feel like life was worth living. His decision was to quit.
For him, the decision came with some financial risk. However, six months later, he knew it was the right move for him. Suddenly, he found himself home with his young children, his relationship with his spouse improved as his stresses declined, and he found time to be happy.
When I used to do business coaching, one of the first questions I asked was, “What should you NOT be doing?”
Often we cling to conventions of the past; we think we have to do something, which actually may not have any value to our customers or ourselves.
So, my question to you this week is: “What can you Quit?”
What can you stop doing to gain free time?
What can you stop doing that reduces your stress?
What can you drop from your life to help you thrive?
If you feel overwhelmed, over worked, or dissatisfied maybe its time to quit. Here are a few suggestions to get you started…..
Quit the negative self talk,
Quit the non-productive activities,
Quit being a slave to what was, become a believer in what can be.
What can you put on your quit list which will make you better?
Happy Quitting Day to you..
