Survival Diary – What To Do When You Quit

How to survive when you quit your six-figure job

This new chapter is exciting for me. I will need to learn a lot in a short period of time. This isn’t about pressure but about challenge. I am going to be putting up a video diary (click on the link above) every now and then as an experiment. I hope that people who read this will take the opportunity to share their own approaches to living in this new age.

My drama with the Harbor will continue and I will provide updates. Legal and PR paths may dictate some of this content.

“The rich are not like you and me.” F. Scott Fitzgerald had it right! For my fellow servant leaders (without the benefit of a trust fund) make sure you develop your own network, stay in touch with them and print out your contact info every six months! Don’t ever think that the Masters of the Universe will let you into the club and fear for your soul if you desire entry!

When I became the subject of the story instead of the object of some people’s philanthropic fantasies – no longer a prop – I became a problem. “Huh? Who are you? Where did you come from and how dare you disturb my reverie?!” As I said, to be continued.

I once again get to discover those people who believed in my title (attorney, chief counsel, Executive Director, Head of School) rather than me. I get to begin the ironic journey of seeking my freedom through interdependence and eagerly await my new work with another harvest.

Thanks to those of you who have already shown your support and provided your advice. I promise this won’t be boring.

What do you want to be new for you in 2010?
