don’t mess around when it comes to your life. put it all on the table. don’t fool yourself into thinking all is going well when it is not. put it all on the table. your job is not going well – you know it and your boss knows it. don’t hide from this fact. go to your boss and tell him how you feel. tell him you know that things are not going according to plan. tell him that we don’t want to waste each other’s time – that life is too short for that and that time & money should not be wasted. put a deadline down to either turn things around or move on. this is putting it all on the table. this is listening to your gut telling you enough is enough – make it happen or move on. move on to something that will work. life is not cookie cutter and you must progress and survive any way you know how. taking the risky job was a statement to yourself that you will take risks and you will go for those opportunities – but it is also a risk to put it on the table and to leave the risky job for the unknown. these are the times where you will be challenged the most. you have done this and you have done that – but you must keep going, you must keep taking the risks to get ahead – to have peace of mind in life – to wake up and breath a sigh of relief – that is what you are striving towards – so put it all on the table and keep doing so until that day of relief comes. and when it does – start all over again.
