Leap Day is the Perfect Day to …

Quit your job. So I am!

You’re hearing it here, first. In 41 minutes I’m meeting with my boss and giving him my two week’s notice.

I do not have another job lined up (yet, but I will.)

I can’t tell you how good this feels.



  1. Go Jim! Coincidentally, a year ago tomorrow (Mar. 2) I did the exact same thing. Took six months off and looked for a job I wanted, not one I had to take. Someone cool will hire you, and you will be happy. I know it.

  2. Way to go, Jim. I’ve done that before (though I did have sign up to five temp companies) and it turned out mostly ok. Not to mention the last time I was laid off – back in 2005 – I took a year off working a steady job, instead living on temp work, unemployment, working for a congressional candidate and an Irish newspaper. It was a hand to mouth existence, but I don’t regret a moment of it. I learned a lot, about myself, about the political process and about various other subjects.

    You’ll land on your feet. I know it. Good luck!

  3. Feel the way the wind is blowing in the US, become a debt counsellor!
