Start with Intention

I really, really, really, really, really want to quit my job.

There.  I said it.

When I launched this website, I was struck by inspiration.  In 90 days, come hell or high water, I was going to quit my job.  That’s it.  I’d had it.  I couldn’t take it anymore.  I was done.

That’s the thing with inspiration, it comes in bright and loud, like lightening and thunder, and you can go on an amazing journey if you harness its energy properly.  If not, well… it can stop you in its track, a little deaf and a little blind.

That’s exactly what happened to me.

= The 90 day mark would start when the website went live.
= Oh, wait.  It would start when I did my first blog entry, which I would do when my website went live.
= Darn.  Have to write the thing, give me a few days.
= Hang on.  If I’m going to quit in 90 days, I can’t actually SAY SO in my first blog.  What if my boss finds out?  Best to build up to it, lay the groundwork—who am I, what do I hope to share, why am I doing all this in the first place, what IS all this, and so on.  Soften the ground and THEN announce in my blog that I’m going to leave.

Do you see what I’m doing?

I’m procrastinating. 

The idea of quitting your job and starting a business can be daunting.  I was going to say “especially when the income from the business doesn’t yet cover your salary,” but let’s face it – that’s just another one of my excuses.  The world is full of examples of people who’ve quit their jobs and done well in business.  There are also people who work and run their business on the side, refusing to quit their job, unsure that their business will ever be enough.

We get so caught up in our heads with what perfect is supposed to look like that, in trying to achieve perfection, we fail to act. 

Perfect isn’t going to happen.  It’s far, far better to get it done than to get it perfect.

I knew that.  I know that.  You’d think I wouldn’t let the need for perfection stop me.  And, yet, it did.

This is me getting started.  I could say “I’m going to become a life coach, focusing on mindset, and start a business online coaching women and quit my job as I help my clients quit theirs.”  Besides the fact that that sentence is far too long, I object to the idea of becoming and starting.  I already am a coach.  I already have a business.  My business as a coach is small now, but it exists.  It’s here.  And, it’s going to grow.

What I can do is take the first step.  Make my intention.  Stand at the beginning of my path.  Take the first step.

So, here it is:

I’m going to quit my job in 90 days.  Starting right now.
