Transcript:

There’s a great book I often refer to by Susie either Susie Hogshead or Sally Hogshead, I think it’s Susie. It’s called Radical Careering and it’s a book of kind of pithy, graphic quotes and short little thoughts about your career. And I was flipping through it and there’s one page I came across that said, simply, “It’s not your fault for being ina crappy career. It’s your fault for staying in a crappy career.” And I want you to internalize that fact. Ending up in a job that doesn’t suit you is not, necessarily, due to your own inaction. Being laid of is often not due to any action on your part. I’ve been in that situation. You’re kind of like, “Ok. I did what I was supposed to do, but the company didn’t do what it was supposed to do. So, here I am.” Staying in that situation. Staying in a bad job. Not dealing with your transition. Not dealing with your layoff is where you are actually failing. And I want you to understand that you don’t have to do that. You have the power in your hands to move through this process and come out the other side.
