I quit my job today

Because an extended holiday in Bali just wasn’t giving me enough freedom. Lol. Ok, that’s not why I quit my job, well, the long-term, full-time contract that was my sole contract for the past three years.

I’ve kinda been working towards doing this for a while. It’s been tough because there are parts of my work that I really enjoy. But I have come realize that it’s not in alignment with my goals and passions, and its time to start working towards living up to my full potential.

What is that “potential” that I want to live up to? I’m still finalizing that. In fact, it’s one of the things that I have beaten myself up about because I thought that I’d have become more clear by now. I was thinking about that today, and it occurred to me that I was never going to have the clarity that I was searching for while I was still committed to my job – both contractually and emotionally.

I had not given myself the ‘space’ to truly begin to redefine my career whilst holding on to my current career. It was time to cut the ties and really take a leap of faith and put my money where my mouth was. So that’s what I did with my day today!!

I’ll keep ya posted on how that goes. But it’s feelin pretty great so far!!

    πŸ™‚ Harry says pick a direction and go with it until you want to change directions. To me, that means you don’t need to be very worried about what your “full potential” is as long as you’re moving in a direction you find meaningful. I think you’re doing just that! Besides, a lot of us still don’t fully know what we want to be when we grow up! I’ve about decided that some of us have ‘differentiated potential’ which makes it possible for us to be happy, useful in several scenarios. πŸ™‚
