I am an idiot. I took a job that pays salary and demands upwards of 80 hours a week of my time. On a good week.
I’m on call 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. I can’t get through dinner with my fiance without my phone ringing.
Yes…I’m an idiot.
time to get the fuck out of this trap I’ve found myself in.
Wanna know how I know this? Because I feel sick when I park my car at work every morning.
I’m a Stoic succumbing to stress. How does that even happen? I don’t know.
I still make myself work, I still focus on doing as good of a job as I can, but I’m losing steam.
My home life is suffering, my business has been forced to the back-burner, my money is getting spent on gas instead of food. I’m miserable.
The escape plan is being formed.
It seems so simple when I think about it from an outside perspective…
- Manage my time better.
- Come up with a solid plan.
- Re-focus on my business.
- Step down from my current position to free up more time.
- Focus MORE on my business.
- Quit my day job.
The thing is…each one of those “simple” steps aren’t simple at all. They’re quite complex. So it boils down to a more complex escape plan.
I guess I should elaborate, but I’m not going to. Not yet, anyway.
