This is the time where people make fake-ass promises to themselves and label them as “resolutions”. They resolve to change their ways from the year before and the year before that and the one before that and so on. Join the club, if you must — if you’re well disciplined — but make this the year you do something about that job you hate. No, I’m condoning violence against any bosses and co-workers. I am advocating, however, the removal of yourself from a toxic workplace. A crappy ass job. A demeaning position. A paycheck-to-paycheck lifestyle. A dead end. If you don’t want to work where you’re working, for who you’re working, doing what you’re working — fix it. No excuses. No buts. No maybes. No “I’ll try”.
Most of us know more, can offer more, and be more than we give ourselves credit for. So prove it.
Oh, yeah … Happy New Year’s.
