A note from Jonathan: Every day I get emails from people asking if they should quit their job right now to do what they “really want to do,” or if they should wait and follow a plan.
In nearly every case, my answer is “Yes, you should absolutely have a plan. Why would you want to come crawling back to your employer because you didn’t think things through?”
That’s why I love this essay from Ben. His story and what he’s learned will help you to be able to “quit without quitting” to see if it’s even something you want, before you take the plunge.
