Advice On What To Do If (Or When) You Get Fired From Someone Who’s Been There

what to do if you get fired

Laid off. Downsized out of your job. Fired. Call it what you like, it’s all the same thing. One day you have a job and a paycheck to go with it and the next day the alarm goes off at 6 AM and you have nowhere to go.

I’ve been there. More than once.

The first time was when I was living in Washington, DC. I knew it was coming, but I still panicked. Actually, first I shut the door to my office,

Quotes by Joanne Tombrakos  (?)
Quotes are added by the Goodreads community and are not verified by Goodreads. (Learn more)

“Multi-tasking is great in the kitchen when you are trying to time the chicken to be ready at the same time as the potatoes. But do not assume it is a great way to manage a workday.”
Joanne Tombrakos, It Takes An Egg Timer, A Guide to Creating the Time for Your Life

“Here's to the crazy ones. The misfits. The rebels. The troublemakers. The round pegs in the square holes. The ones who see things differently. They're not fond of rules. And they have no respect for the status quo. You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them. About the only thing you can't do is ignore them. Because they change things. They push the human race forward. And while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius. Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do.”
Rob Siltanen

“You have brains in your head. You have feet in your shoes. You can steer yourself any direction you choose. You're on your own. And you know what you know. And YOU are the one who'll decide where to go...”
Dr. Seuss, Oh, the Places You'll Go!

“I can’t write without a reader. It’s precisely like a kiss—you can’t do it alone.”
John Cheever

“Above all, be the heroine of your life, not the victim.”
Nora Ephron

“Joy is the best makeup.”
