You need to make a major change in your life. Do you make it all at once, cold turkey style, or incrementally?
My first reaction was to ask whether it’s a cop out to say “a bit of both” but on second thought I have first-hand experience making a major change in my life – quitting my job, as in resigning, walking away without looking back, I’m just not doing that anymore!
I did no research, I did no financial review, I merely consulted with my husband about my plan, received his support and went for it. The change was greatly facilitated, actually financed by my negotiating a 6 month severance package–I’ll entertain questions on how I did this in the comments-however, there was no question that I was quitting once I’d decided I was done.
You may suspect there’s a big back story here but you’re going to have to wait for my book to come out!!
