Your 3-Step Guide
to Shedding the Shoulds
The biggest should I’ve ever shed came when I was 31. I was 4.25 days in to a job that was turning out to be less than desirable. It was a perfect fall day, and I was sitting on a four-hour conference call in a windowless room. A quick break offered me the opportunity to turn to my boss. “I’m sorry,” I said. “This just isn’t for me.”
It was one of the best decisions I’ve ever made, as it led me right here, to you.
