    Thank you, Glenn – good advice! I’m getting ready to sell my company, not because I hate my job, I’m just tired of the management duties. I want to keep a hand in teaching and advising, but it’s time to move on and I’m feeling good about it.

    Good article! Time to analyze why I stay in my current position. I am saying that it is to keep health insurance. (I am 57 years old and my wife has some health issues).

    But is this the real reason I stay? Or is it my lack of confidence to leave something I have done for 13 years and try something new? Much food for thought.

  3. R. Jones Says:

    Great advice. At age 56 I left a really great job (one that I had been passionate about for many years). I felt a call to go into full-time ministry. Best decision I ever made. There have certainly been some challenges, but the good stuff far outweighs the bad stuff. It took several years to gather up the courage to “make the leap”, but it has been the right thing. If you’re feeling the urge/call/need to do something different, every day you wait is a day you’ll regret. Go for it!!

    I was in the same position for 9 years, loved my job but my manager was dishonest and destructive. I stayed because I loved my work. I was not giving it my all towards the end due to being untrusting of my manager. I had actually already left in my mind but not in body. I realized I was staying out of comfort. When I finally left, I was so relieved. My burden of putting on the “happy face” was over. I learned a valuable lesson.

  5. Jennifer Walters Says:

    You are so right! I worked really hard to keep my first marriage together so I wouldn’t “fail,” when my wise mother commented that maybe failing was staying in the marriage. What an AH HA moment that was for me. Sometimes “our normal” isn’t normal and we don’t realize it until we change our situation.

    Thank you Glenn,
    I like hearing you speak and you give new ideas and a different approach.

    I lived your message thinking I was tied to the “golden handcuffs” and decided for my own health and mind I needed to leave that career after 32 years and try something else. Three years after leaving my very high paying and stressful position, I have found my niche as Director Chamber Operations. I make about 1/3 the pay but absolutely love what I do and it shows. Money does not buy happiness – I have adjusted my lifestyle!

    Thanks for your article Glen. So many of my co-workers have wasted not just years but decades in jobs that no longer fit. Always a relief when the finally made a change, for both the employee and the employer.
