I was on the phone with some colleagues this week, waiting for a meeting to start, and one of them mentioned that another colleague (who I only knew by name) had recently quit.It seems he was frustrated by the job pressure and periodic threat of being laid off. So he just decided to quit shortly before Christmas, telling his colleagues and boss that he was going to take a year off.My colleagues were really mystified by how anyone could do this. It was a funny call, because they were saying things like, "He's got two kids to support. We're all wondering how he could possibly afford to take a year off."I chuckled privately to myself, thinking, "I know how. He probably lives well below his means and saves diligently so he has the freedom to dump a job and take a year to smell the roses." Not all of us are up to our ears in debt and clinging to a weekly paycheck.
