A Greater Resignation

The Great Resignation Isn’t So Great

When I had a permanent employment job that I disliked, the phrase ‘great resignation’ sounded very appealing.

I assumed it was about the opportunities made possible by the creator economy. That people could quit the world of fixed employment for a company and all the culture and practices that go with that lifestyle. We’d take the new opportunities to work for ourselves.

Instead, it turned out that this ‘great’ resignation was about people quitting their jobs to find another permanent employment with better work conditions. I found that to be a thin vision.

I want to work on my own terms and to take ownership of my day. For work that makes my life feel ‘great’.
