How Badly Do You Want It?
You've felt this way for far too long, waiting for a change to come.
But you keep pushing it back because the commitments weigh you down; the car loans, the mortgage, the credit card bills, the debt and the worries. Let's face it, it's overwhelming. So the only way forward is to keep running on the corporate treadmill because the cash that it spits out provides a temporary sense of relief - for 30 days or so, before you have to start worrying again.
Perhaps this treadmill does not spit out enough cash to fund your worries. So you'd jump from one treadmill to the other, hoping that the next one will spit out more cash. In the process, you need to also look like you love what you do. But for what?
A face of apathy and a receding hairline? Look at your colleagues for god's sake.
How badly do you want it? How badly do you want out of the corporate rat cage?
Every decision you make starting from now is going to determine how fast you're going to get out of the rat cage.
I'm going extreme, because that's how badly I want it.
