If you wake up in the morning and don’t look forward to starting your day because you have to go to work here is a little read for you.
We have limited days on this earth, regardless of how many we have left, it’s limited to a certain amount. We can’t buy more, we can’t steal more and we can’t be gifted with more. We could have 3 days lefts, we could have 3000, either way it’s finite.
I imagine you have been told the same things as I at some point, stuff like “live each day as if it’s your last” and so on. But we don’t because we don’t believe it will be our last day, why would we? Yesterday wasn’t our last day, neither was the day before that. Over time we have been conditioned to believe that we have more time, which is generally correct.
So let’s look at it differently. There is a quote in a film, it might be bigger than the film, I don’t know. But the quote is something like “what man is a man who doesn’t make this world a better place”, I love this so much. I think the two goals in life have to be to have fun and to help others have fun. That’s the peak of happiness isn’t it?
So if you are spending 9 hours a day doing something you don’t enjoy doing then stop! Stop today! You are wasting your life, think of all those wasted hours, hundreds and if not thousands of wasted hours. Fuck that.
So let’s look at why you need to change things and leave your job.
- It is simply the right thing to do, you are only there because you think you need to be. Let me tell you that you don’t, the world won’t end if you hand in your notice right now. We are told that no one likes their jobs but we have to do it, we don’t! That’s utter shit. That person who told you that has not had a full life. Leaving is the right thing to do if you don’t enjoy it. It’s the simplest of logic.
- There is a world out there, heard that before haven’t you? But there really is! Go and find new things. You can’t do this if you have a shitty job that you don’t like. But if you leave it and spend about 2 hours typing things into google you’ll be amazed at what you can find. I usually won’t link people to this because I think of it as my little secret even though it’s not because it’s huge. But have a look at http://www.workaway.info, you can find placements all over the world that’ll house you and feed you. All you need to do is get there. Explore this world before it’s too late, and let me tell you today is t too late.
- The best way to enrich your life is to enrich others, to give something to this world. Give yourself, vanish into the world, disappear into it. I promise you people are the most interesting thing on this planet but if you are hiding away each day in a shit job doing bullshit tasks that don’t improve the world in anyway you are wasting your life and time. You have so much more to give and if ever there was a time when the world needed you it’s now! The world needs you and others like you.
Don’t panic about leaving your job, if you let it leaving will reward you greatly! If you have any questions or want any help I’ll help, so will thousands of other people. You just have to find them and trust me they are easy to find.
The author, A Guide to Life left everything he ever knew to explore the world. Like everyone else who has done this he couldn’t recommend it more! Why do we live on this planet if not to enjoy it?
