21. Don’t Quit Your Job
No matter how much you can’t stand your job and you think about leaving, especially if you come into money, the odds of staying rich are low. You want to make sure that you know what you’re doing before you quit. One reason for this is that you think your money will last forever so you don’t need to remain productive.
The fact is, we are not wired to be unproductive. When we start to become lazy, our minds begin to think about everything we can do, but we simply don’t have the energy for it. This can lead us to depression or feeling that we don’t have a purpose in life. No matter how much you hate your job, it does give you a sense of purpose and keeps you motivated. If you really want to quit your job, think of how much power you have to say you can walk away at any time. That power shift is better than suddenly leaving.
