Why you should quit your job and travel now
“Now that I’m 31, I understand why people say travel while you’re young because once you’re older, you won’t get the chance.But it’s not that you won’t get the chance. It’s that it seems so much harder when you’re older.To clarify, I’m not talking about the kind of travel that neatly fills those allotted twelve days of annual vacation. No, that kind of travel is frenzied, restricting the majority of life to an unnatural cycle of constant want of more.I’m talking about the kind of rugged, unplanned long-term travel where you give up owning most things, leave behind a stable home, learn to live simply on a budget, and really see the world for months on end. The kind of travel that was possible after graduation, when you strapped on your backpack and jumped into the unknown world, flowing carefree wherever the wind blew.”

Everyone has bills to pay, and hard work is a respectable trait.The thing I have come to realise is that I mostly have a problem with the lack of freedom that comes with the job — being tied down to a very specific place.I want to live a free range life, and having a job really doesn’t allow that.Sure — not having a monthly income is scary and there is no guarantee of making enough money to support yourself and family, but what’s the point of living a life where you spend your days sitting in an office doing work that doesn’t matter?”

I Quit!
“Well, I didn’t quit. It was worse than that.
It was the middle of a meeting. I was bored out of my mind. Plus I was nervous because my new boss told me “don’t worry about it” when I asked about a raise.“Don’t worry about it” means “**** you”.And my leg hurt. I had fallen the day before on the way to my lunch with my work friends.So in the middle of the meeting, I excused myself for the bathroom. I limped out. I said goodbye to the receptionist. I didn’t take my coat, my bag, or any of books. My name might still be on my door.I took the elevator 49 floors down. I went up to Grand Central, took the train 70 miles north. I never went back to work.”

The Full-Time Job Is Dead
“Who wants to work 40 hours a week for a single employer? In the future, perhaps nobody.
The full-time job, used to it as we are, is not some natural state of human existence. Before the 1800s, few people worked a structured “work week.” That conceit was dreamed up by early industrialists, who needed to bring workers together in a factory at the same time to efficiently make products. For the past 100 years, the 40-hour job has been the centerpiece of work life because there was no better way for people to gather in one place at the same time to connect, collaborate and produce.”
