Issue 112 - 04 | DON’T QUIT YOUR JOB. FIRE YOUR BOSS. (An Invitation to Unravel What the World Has Taught You About Your Work, Your Career and Your Future)
By Aaron McHugh Published Dec. 20, 2013 8:30 a.m.

“After years of working for the same company, the challenges are largely gone, the original zeal you felt for your job has plateaued to a tolerable “good enough.” You say to yourself, I bet if I can get a job over there at company X, I’d be excited again.

Before you push the eject button, think of the hassle of brushing up your resume, looking for a new job, going through the interviews, evaluating the benefits packages, and comparing the compensation.

Let’s face it: The biggest gain in changing jobs is that you will restart the clock on a new set of challenges, a new pairing of relationships, and a new boss.

What if I told you that this is not the answer you are really searching for?

What if you fired your boss instead?”
