I can feel the pain of my people out there in corporate jobs who are not quite ready to quit and start their own business. It is so hard to stay in an environment that you know doesn’t agree with you. I am currently working on a corporate gig while I write my book. It really is not bad, but I feel my essential self rebel by:
- Making it seem impossible to get simple work done since I am so resistant
- Feeling stress and anxiety about getting things done
- Feeling insecure about the work even though I get great feedback about it
I am so ready to devote myself full-time to my new endeavors that it can be very frustrating to still be interacting in the corporate world. What I try to do to keep centered and not whine is to maintain a spirit of gratitude for the source of income, focus on what I can learn from the experience and stay very disciplined about making my long-term vision come alive by writing every day. What do you do to stay sane?
