10 Reasons For Why You Should Quit Your Job Now
Most of the people spend (sell) most of their lives working for somebody else, living somebody else’s dread and making somebody else rich. Most people can’t even imagine life without having a 9-5 job… And you know what? Such a life is just wonderful, I know it from my own experience. And that you will be free is not the only cool thing about working for yourself, there are many other like following your own dreams, living your own life as you want, doing what you believe in, earning what you deserve and many more… Don’t we have just one life to sell a big part of it working? And life’s short… It’s just a blink in time…. Still not lighting the fire of freedom in you? Read the story of a guy who said the magic words ‘I quit’ and his 10 reason for doing it. The article below was written by James Altucher (and published on his Linked In profile), who was a worker, but now is an entrepreneur, business angel and publisher. Here it is:
This was going to end badly.
My boss screamed at me in front of my colleagues. I had done something wrong of course. I had sent a product to the client without debugging it thoroughly. It was my fault. But I don’t like being yelled at.
And fortunately I was sitting on a job offer that I decided to take that moment. So the next day I said the magic words, “I quit”.
And then a few years after that, I quit again, and never went back to work in the corporate world.
And now it’s too late. Now the course of history has finally written its next chapter. There’s no more bullshit. I’m going to tell you why you have to quit your job. Why you need to get the ideas moving. Why you need to build a foundation for your life or soon you will have no roof.

1) The middle class is dead.
A few weeks ago I visited a friend of mine who manages a trillion dollars. No joke. A trillion. If I told you the name of the family he worked for you would say, “they have a trillion? Really?” But that’s what happens when ten million dollars compounds at 2% over 200 years.
He said, “look out the windows”. We looked out at all the office buildings around us. “What do you see?” he said. “I don’t know.” “They’re empty! All the cubicles are empty. The middle class is being hollowed out.” And I took a closer look. Entire floors were dark. Or there were floors with one or two cubicles but the rest empty. “It’s all outsourced or technology has taken over for the paper shufflers,” he said.
