How to Quit the Rat Race
Develop a feeling that something's not right with your current occupation. That your job sucks, your life's being wasted and you are meant for something else. Ensure that you understand that the rat race is not the only option out there. Cultivate a strong belief that a life of travel, meaningful interactions and work, and a shift from offering yourself to offering services is possible for you. Plan for 3 months of discovery, definition, development and distribution to find something that works for you. Tell your boss that you've decided to move on to do greater things. They'll want to convince you to stay, which is an opportunity to learn if they even appreciate you at all, in which case - take the praise, and leave their offers. Otherwise, good riddance.
