We just got a new person on our team. He had been at Microsoft before but quite some years ago to go travel fro a couple of years. Now travelling had become tiresome and he wanted to settle down again for a bit and so got back to work.
Got me thinking… is now really the perfect time to quit and go travelling or work on a new business idea? At least assuming you have the funds, or should you wait? Think about it. Everything is cheaper right now. Airfares are dirt cheap as the carriers are desperate for business, hotels are dying for business, and stores seem to be inventing new anniversaries that can give them an excuse for a sale. Maybe now is the best time in years to quit for a while enjoy life and then get back to work when the economy is picking up again.
