First and foremost, begin to set up your safety net. See http://www.movinglady.com/safety.html . Use company's resources to build your skills and network. Pay yourself first, in time as well as money. Spend at least two hours a day on You, Inc. project.
Want time off? Make a plan. Will you take two weeks, two months or two years? Commit to being free. Forget about planning your life purpose or dabbling in business ideas. See http://www.movinglady.com imeout.html.
However, even if you absolutely, positively hate your job, expect to feel a let-down when you begin to face empty days. Get yourself tightly scheduled with temporary jobs, appointments, or classes. Stay off couch. Donít' lose momentum.
If you can't get going, or you keep postponing a meeting with a coach, you may be really, truly stuck. See http://www.movinglady.com/stuck.html for some suggestions to dig yourself out.
The journey will probably take longer than you anticipate. You will have some bizarre experiences, especially in beginning, but they eventually will be replaced by heart-warming encounters with warm, generous people. You will learn to transform wet blankets into comfort quilts. See http://www.movinglady.com/blankets.html.
Along way you will probably stumble on your life purpose, which eluded you while you were reading self-help books on couch.
Keep a journal faithfully. No one can predict where you will be in a year, but you will be able to look back and realize how far you have come. Drop me a line to share your story.
