(1:26) “The appeal of just declaring, “I quit!” and going full steam ahead towards your dreams is clear. And, for some, it might even be the right approach. There’s something to be said for going ‘all in’ and burning your bridges – no plan B, this has to work, and you’ll do whatever it takes to make it happen.”
(3:25) “If, instead of making a rash decision to pack it all in and take a leap of faith, you instead decide to take a breath and think it through rationally, the risk is that your fears take hold again, you retreat back into your comfort zone, and you keep dreaming of that corporate escape that you’re never actually going to make.”
(5:59) “Instead, what I’m suggesting you do is map out a framework for what needs to happen in order to make your corporate escape work. This will involve developing an understanding of what it is that you’re trying to achieve and why; key action steps that are easy to follow but also flexible as you learn more about yourself and things inevitably evolve; and deadlines and milestones to make sure you’re progressing within your desired timeline.”
