But a lot of us don’t. What we have is a fear of the unknown future and a severe allergy to sharing that fear with other people. This is my inoculation against that allergy. Shall we hold hands as we leap?” Vigeland tells above stories about professionals who’ve lept. Some landed safely in a better place while others were still in mid-air years later and a few suffered hard landings. Until recently, Tess Vigeland was a longtime host with public radio's Marketplace; it was a rewarding, high-status job, and Tess was very good at it—but she'd begun to feel restless. Without any definite, clear sense of what she wanted to do next (but an absolute certainty that what she'd been doing was no longer truly satisfying), she walked away from her dream job and into a vast unknown. Suddenly she was no longer “Marketplace’s Tess Vigeland,” she was just Tess Vigeland. For the multitude of Americans who change jobs mid-career (by choice or circumstance), the growing legions of freelance workers, and the entrepreneurially-minded who see self-employment as an increasingly more appealing and viable option, Tess Vigeland has created a personal and well-researched account of leaping without a net. With her signature humor, she writes honestly about the fear, uncertainty, and risk involved in leaving the traditional workforce—but also the excitement, resources, and possibilities that are on the other side. Leap is also about finding a new definition of success. Tess poses the important question – “Who am I without my job?” She shares the accounts of people who struggled with this question before and after they took their own leap of faith, and ended up finding out more about themselves than they’d thought possible. Success doesn’t have to be measured by salary or a traditional career path, as so many of us are conditioned to think, but by your own happiness and fulfillment. Part memoir and part field guide, this book offers a funny, thoughtful, and provocative look at how to find satisfaction and success when pursuing a career less ordinary. This isn't the book that'll give you a plan for what to do after quitting a job (or being fired). IT IS a good book to normalize the emotions of quitting. Tess relays the emotional struggle of quitting and losing an identity such as ranging from self-congratulation to self-doubt within the same hour. Much of the book is structured as a memoir, but it is designed to help people ask the questions of themselves about whether they should stay or go. One of the most interesting ideas is whether or not quitting something is as bad as it is made out to be. We are all taught early on not to be quitters, but there are times when it makes sense to walk away. This is not a how to book, but there are plenty of references in it for people who want to follow up with those kinds of reading. Instead this is about preparing yourself mentally and emotionally to make a change when you need the change to happen -- even if there is no plan B in place. Prepare to spend long, lonely months wrestling with self-doubt, redefining success and rethinking what makes you remarkable. “We all know we’re not supposed to define ourselves and our success by money, by page views, by Twitter followers, by fan mail, by audience size. But if you have a job, it does define you in many ways. Focusing on externalities like money and prestige is a hard habit to break.” You’re also defined by the expectations of others, no matter how unrealistic. “What if you didn’t have to live up to anyone’s expectations, including your own, to be bigger and better with every passing year? No matter what your next steps are – up the ladder, down the ladder, or off the ladder entirely – the process of figuring out how to remove that weight of expectation, or at least lessen the load, is an invaluable one. You can learn a lot from just giving yourself a freaking break.” Leap isn’t an instruction manual. You won’t find 10 easy steps to walking away and starting over. But it’s a must-read for anyone who knows it’s time to move on but doesn’t yet have the courage to leap without a net.
