Subject: Cat Got Your Tongue…?
Hi <first name>,
It’s Lisa Smillie here, recent AWAI graduate.
I’m at a total loss for words, and I couldn’t be happier about it…
The last time I got together with some friends the conversation turned into, as it often does, a kind of bull session about problems at work. The kind of things we’ve all experienced at one time or another.
–The feeling of dread on a Sunday night and the agonizing anticipation for Friday.
–Coworkers that stink up the microwave in the lunchroom with their exotic leftovers.
–Bosses that are great at placing blaming and glory grabbing, taking credit for work you do.
–And the drudgery of having to get up at a certain time each day and fight traffic to get to your desk on time.
–Dealing with the petty politics that seem to be apart of most traditional workplaces.
–Having to do work that is uninspiring at best, and a waste of your life energy…
–Not being paid what you’re worth, and feeling like you don’t have any control over your income.
–Having 40 hours a week of your time controlled by someone else.
–Not being able to take an afternoon or a few days off just because you feel like it.
The list could go on and each of my friends had their own gripe, but when it came to my turn to say something I sat there in silence.
I’ll admit I wasn’t really paying attention.
While they went on to list all the things that they hated about their jobs my mind was wandering; wandering off to thinking about where I would take my next vacation, when my kids next game was and how much I love being able to go to them.
As they described their hellish workplaces in excruciating detail, I was daydreaming about how I might go for a walk, take a nap or just do a little shopping while the stores were uncrowded later that afternoon.
So it caught me off guard when they all turned to me in anticipation of what my work gripe might be and…
I HAD NUTHIN’
Yeah, nothing to complain about, nothing to contribute to this downer conversation. I tried not to smile too smugly.
Ever since I took that first big step, I have never looked back.
Here’s what made the difference for me.
I ask myself all the time why I waited so long, why I waited so long to invest in myself and become the master of my circumstances and not the victim.
Now I work when it suits me. I can see my kids games, do a little gardening or golfing and then work in the quiet of the early morning or the late evening. I’m the boss.
The FREEDOM is the best part of the whole deal. Isn’t freedom to control your own time the ultimate form of wealth?
I just couldn’t imagine what it would be like to go back to that feeling of being owned by someone else.
Well, I can’t honestly say I didn’t have anything to contribute to the gripe fest, I did have one thing to say…
