This is the fourth article following The Irony of Quitting My Job to Take a Sabbatical, a series on what I learned and what I’d recommend from quitting my job to take a six-month sabbatical (without another job in sight).

In reaching the tipping point, my mind kept turning on the how’s and the what’s to no avail. The many possibilities morphed into its own obstacle. I was overwhelmed and doubtful, not fully trusting I’d make the change I resolved to make.
Many people, myself included, start wondering about the tactics of a potential change without addressing what I now know to be a key part of making the leap.
