Hi! Okay, this is me.
And I quit my career in advertising on January 1st 2012 because I didn’t like it anymore.
It took a really long time to come to that decision, and I was scared. Because:
1) I didn’t know what was next.
2) I wondered what other people would think, and
3) I’ve always needed to excel at something and have all the answers and have all my shit together and aboutazillionotherfuckingexcuses.
I had everything: the money, the job, the future, the apartment, the belongings, the job title.
But I wasn’t happy.
I wasn’t me.
To find out what was me, I needed to see what I was without all my shit together. To go into the scariest place I could imagine: a blank slate, where the only thing I know for sure is that I just quit my last desk job.
F the Desk is a journey toward purpose.
