In today’s episode, Anna looks at being stuck in your job, and the reasons why most people are never going to quit their corporate job, even though they want to.
(2:23) “There are bound to be lots of individual reasons and explanations for why you’re not doing anything about this right now and I’m sure you’ll tell me, “Oh but you don’t understand I have this really unique situation…” However, in my experience, there are also some very consistent themes as to what’s keeping people stuck in their corporate jobs even as they fantasise about the possibilities that might be out there.”
(7:00) “Because, as I discovered myself after leaving in 2013, it’s not just about that one-off decision to quit: it’s many little decisions, you have to be courageous not once but again and again, over the weeks, months, years and keep working, keep pushing, keep taking those steps in the right direction.”
(9:38) “If all these pitfalls and obstacles are just making you all the more determined to commit to this decision, to work hard to make this happen, and above all to prove me wrong, then, good, fantastic, great news! That’s the resolve you need to really shake things up, get out of your comfort zone and take steps towards realising your own career change.”
