ACTION JACKSON, THAT'S ME

Seth Godin offers some words of fire and inspirado:

Maybe you already have a clipping on your mirror that asks you what you did during the 1990s. What's your biggest regret about that decade? Do you wish that you had started, joined, invested in, or built something? Are you left wishing that you'd at least had the courage to try? In hindsight, the 1990s were the good old days. Yet so many people missed out. Why? Because it's always possible to find a reason to stay put, to skip an opportunity, or to decline an offer. And yet, in retrospect, it's hard to remember why we said no and easy to wish that we had said yes.

The thing is, we still live in a world that's filled with opportunity. In fact, we have more than an opportunity -- we have an obligation. An obligation to spend our time doing great things. To find ideas that matter and to share them. To push ourselves and the people around us to demonstrate gratitude, insight, and inspiration. To take risks and to make the world better by being amazing.

Anybody who wants to raise a toast to me quitting my job and jumping off a cliff, come on down to the Black Dog coffee shop/wine bar in Lowertown on Monday -- after 6-ish. Buy me a drink, or I'll buy you one if you bring me some hot freelance action!

Sharyn suggests this might be a good, uhh, revenue stream.

Hey, I'm Google's top pick for quitting my job. And tofurkey day.

Umm, you'll have to dress real pretty-like.

I was just sayin'... "Man, I can't wait to masturbate for a living!"

I could totally videoblog it over time. Go all Kinsey on that action.

Funny, I was just at a party last Thursday in a studio attached to the Black Dog.

$150 a pop? That's not bad... Oh the money I could have made as a teen...

in honor of your quiting I decided that I'm going to quite the Nabet Union, so that I can't work there anymore either. After a threat of lawsuit from tpt/nabet last year, this christmas I got a letter saying "pay your dues or you won't get any work". screw em'.
I ain't payin'

I'm recording my "Curtis Champagne" hip-hop single at a studio next week. So once the record hits goes gold I'll be a rich bitch anyway.

-on a side note - sleep doc returns from dvd manufacturing December 23rd. yeah!

You deserve a gold star. Congrats on the google search about quitting your job, that rocks. You've inspired me to do the same. I told my boss I'd be out in March, rain or shine. Of course, I haven't officially submitted anything at this point.

Rock on!
