I'm so excited to celebrate 100 episodes (can you believe it?) of Quit Happens with you today, and to do so, I'm going to be sharing two interviews where I was the guest on other podcasts.
If you're a regular listener you're probably already familiar with Mike Bledsoe of The Bledsoe Show and Josh Trent of Wellness Force. I love these two humans so much and wanted to share these two amazing conversations for you to enjoy as well.
A couple links I mention that are worth checking out:
And the even funnier YouTube video
Show Notes From My Episode On The Bledsoe Show
Dr. Lynn Marie Morski is a physician, attorney, and life-long quitting enthusiast. She practices medicine at the Veterans Administration and shares her love of strategic quitting through speaking, coaching, and her podcast Quit Happens. Her goal is to pass on the strategic quitting skills she's developed to help people go from settling to succeeding. When she's not doctoring, lawyering, or evangelizing quitting, Dr. Morski is also a certified yoga instructor, trains the Brazilian martial art of capoeira, plays guitar and bass, and dances like everyone is watching.
In this episode, we talk about strategic quitting, her various careers, her book Quitting By Design, and her upcoming podcast on plant medicine
Show Notes From My Episode On Wellness Force
“You want to live your truth as much as you can. So many people think that “quitting” is this dirty word but to me, “settling,” is the dirty word.” – Dr. Lynn Marie Morski
Deep down you know it's time for a change but how can you leave a job, relationship, or educational pursuits and feel secure, safe, and happy about your quit?
On Wellness Force Radio episode 247, Coach, Speaker, Author of Quitting by Design, and Host of the Quit Happens Podcast, Dr. Lynn Marie Morski, shares why quitting can be a beneficial form of self-care and discovering what works for each person, the number one reason why people don't embrace the quit, and how quitting vs. settling are two very different things
Discover what a strategic quit is and how to use it to your advantage and for the benefit of your mind and body.
Thousands of self-help books have been written to tell people to live their best lives, without necessarily addressing the fact that making major life changes almost always requires quitting one thing and starting another.
This pain point – the quitting itself – is often the barrier to change. Many avoid quitting because they fear the unknown. Will they find another career or relationship? Will their new path provide financial stability? Will friends and family question the decision to quit? Will society see them as quitters?
These questions generally go unaddressed. But that’s where Quitting by Design comes in – its sole focus is to help people through their quits successfully so they can proceed with their transformations. It’s a step-by-step guide that takes readers from deciding if there’s something they should quit all the way to preparing their health, finances, and relationships for a quiet, and it helps them conquer any fears that may pop up along the way.
“If you're quitting something that may seem like a dream job to others or feel this societal pressure to not quit, you have to stop and realize that the people who are going to judge you aren't you. They're not in your shoes, they're not in your head, and they're not living your life. You're the one who has to live your life; why should you let what somebody else's thoughts of you shape your existence?” – Lynn Marie Morski
“Does your boss want an employee who's constantly looking for a way out? No. Do other people a favor by quitting. Quitting is actually a generous act at some point because they should want somebody in that position who wants to be in that position. If you're forcing yourself to be in this job, you're actually doing them a disservice and there's an opportunity cost for both you and them.” – Lynn Marie Morski
“As a society, we're avoiding putting ourselves out there. We need to quit this facade, quit the mask, and quit this external game. Social media has made it so much worse and is doing the opposite of what it should be doing.” – Lynn Marie Morski
