Leap To a New Life

The title of today's blog comes from this sentence:

If you ever get a chance, and you feel stuck, leap to a new life.

Michael Gill, author of How Starbucks Saved My Life, said that, referring to what happened in his own life after losing his high-powered job, spending another 10 years trying to grow a consulting firm, and finally, at age 63, sitting in a Starbucks in Manhattan wearing an Armani suit, being offered a job. It was a joke, but he accepted.

And he's never looked back.
