How to handle dissatisfaction: exit or voice

It’s 1020pm and my husband asked me an hour ago, “How many days have you not been blogging?” Seriously, he keeps track on my blog every single day. Thank you for being my number 1 motivator. But haven’t you noticed? I haven’t missed a day. I guess it does feel long because the last time I posted was yesterday’s morning so technically, it’s been more than 24 hours since my last post, i.e. more than a day.

Work has been very hectic lately. But I try to keep up with my readings nevertheless. I’m still on my 4th book which I started almost a month ago. I’m struggling to finish it and itching to change to a new one. I have recently bought 2 other books and they keep staring at me as I flip through my 4th book on Kindle.

Anyway, it’s late. So I’m going to leave you with an excerpt from the Originals book I’m currently reading, by Adam Grant which made me ponder upon it for quite a while. It’s about how to handle dissatisfaction.

In the quest for orginality, neglect isn’t an option. Persistence is a temporary route to earning the right to speak up. But in the long run, like neglect, persistence maintains the status quo and falls short of resolving your dissatisfaction. To change the situation, exit and voice are the only viable alternatives.
