Are you fed up with your work/life balance? Do you feel burnt out and uninspired? Are you stuck in a job you hate and desperate for change but don’t know where to start? Then you need this refreshingly honest book that will change your relationship with work for good.
One evening after missing the train home, standing on the cold platform, exhausted and quietly sobbing, Anniki Sommerville realized she wouldn’t get to see her kids before bedtime for the fourth time that week, she knew it was time for a major change. When podcaster, author, and journalist Anniki first landed her dream job, she was overjoyed. But she very quickly felt trapped in a toxic work culture that was making her miserable and anxious.
We’re constantly told we should be doing work that is 100% fulfilling and makes us feel authentic and bursting with happiness at every moment.
But the perfect job doesn’t exist. What if there was another way?
From running a multi-million-pound company to becoming a freelancer and everything in between, Anniki has learnt some valuable life lessons about what work means to her. She’s figured out that ‘nailing it’ is a one-way ticket to burnout and disillusionment, and instead found a more joyful path to contentment. In this essential guide to getting your work life back on track, The Big Quit will show you how to:
- Spot the early signs of burnout
- Embrace trying new things and overcome fear of failure
- Navigate your way through work anxieties
- Create boundaries with your work and home life
- Benefit from slowing down and looking after yourself
- Build your confidence up after a career break
- Enjoy your job!
