Have You Ever Felt Like You'd Like to Make a Change? But Something is Holding You Back?

“A job is just a job.”

Have you ever heard somebody say that? Like they’d given up all hope that they’d find some kind of purpose, advancement potential, happiness, or wealth from their work.

It’s an ugly thought.

Maybe it’s even a thought that’s crossed your mind a time or two. But even if it has, you’re here. And if you’re here, then

you don’t really believe “a job is just a job.”

A job to you is more than just a paycheck. It’s more than a jail cell that you voluntarily visit for 8, 9, or 10 hours a day.

There should be important work to do, not mundane tasks that make you wish you were playing Candy Crush instead.

It should offer fulfillment. It should be fun from time to time. The people should be nice. Yes, even your boss!

And if ANY of the following questions have crossed your mind:

  • Is this where I belong?
  • Is this the happiest I’ll ever be?
  • Is this the most I can make?
  • Is this the best use of my talents?
  • Is this the best use of my time?
  • Is this the team I deserve?

“Is this the best I can do?”

…then that settles it. You don’t see a job as just a job. You see a job as the potential for advancement, for excitement, for learning, and for purpose. All while providing security and wealth.

You want to make changes to your career sooner rather than later. You may even have some ideas on where to start. But then fears and worries and "buts" and "what ifs" pop into your head, short-circuiting the thought process before you even begin to dream:

  • But I have a mortgage and a family; it would be irresponsible to quit!
  • But I’m not gonna find this kind of money at another job; it’d be stupid to leave it.
  • But I feel guilty abandoning this important work here.
  • But I don’t want to lose my precious relationships at work.
  • Maybe it’s just me.
  • Maybe things will get better.
  • What if I tell my boss what I need and he rejects me?
  • Maybe I’m just not good enough.
  • What if I stay at my current job, and resent it for the rest of my life?
  • What if I make the wrong call?
  • What if I do end up leaving, but what the next job is the same or worse than this one?!

Hi, I'm Pete. I've struggled with the same questions.

I'm Pete Mockaitis, Podcast Host and Trainer-in-Chief at How to Be Awesome at Your Job.

As seen in:

Over the years, I’ve coached hundreds of professionals from across the world (many from places like Google, FedEx, Apple, Anheuser-Busch, and The United Nations) to help discover what makes a truly rewarding career for them. You might imagine career decision-making always just came naturally to me. It didn’t!

I remember being stuck in my own Do I Stay or Go moment during my last months at Bain & Company.

I loved my first two years in management consulting, but the allure faded and I was considering leaving. I thought: Am I crazy? Why on earth would I walk away from these brilliant colleagues, daily learning, world-class mentorship, unlimited advancement potential, and healthy 6-figure compensation at age 25? Because I had a childhood dream of being a personal development guru? C'mon!

Nonetheless, week after week, I still felt the pull toward work that grows people instead of corporate valuations. I liked most of the consulting work, but just not soooooo much of it. My scale told me I was overweight, no doubt from the solace I took from nightly room service—chicken fingers with honey mustard sauce—I ordered at the Time Square Westin after leaving the client site at 10, 11, or midnight. Night after night.

My friends thought I was nuts to consider leaving. But I didn’t care. After months of agonizing soul-searching, I reached the point of clarity and conviction. I decided to go.

Now I have a job that just fits me better. I get to enrich thousands of people everyday by discovering and sharing fascinating insights. And I have an extra thousand non-working hours per year to see my baby, exercise, sleep, learn cool things, and have interesting adventures. It’s not perfect, but I’m genuinely much happier. It’s where I belong.

In retrospect, I realize I could have come to this happy place way faster with much less agony if I had the tools I have now.

Did The People Who Love Their Jobs Get Lucky?
No. They All Had This One Thing In Common.

The "lucky" people who love their jobs know precisely what they value.

When you know what you value, you know which opportunities to pursue and which to ignore. It also means that you’ll never make a wrong decision about your career. That’s not to say all of your decisions will be easy ones. But you will never make a wrong decision. Because you know what you want. And you’re going for it.

“But Pete, I value lots of things. Maybe too many things.”

Most career-minded people want their jobs to provide a little bit of everything. Wealth, advancement, flexibility, compelling tasks, learning, purpose, etc. Having many values at once can lead to jumping at opportunities that may not be best for you.

But you can identify which values and opportunities hold more meaning to you than others. All you need is a method of calculating those values and vetting new opportunities.

Only then can you find the answer to one of the most important questions in your life: to stay at your job, or leave it for another opportunity.

The Do I Stay or Go Course Delivers the Definitive Answer to Your Most Urgent Career Question.

You don’t have to quit your job to start fresh. You could start fresh TODAY at the same job if you had confidence you were on the right path.

Do I Stay or Go was built to:

  • Help you determine precisely what you value
  • Discover fascinating opportunities
  • Assess those opportunities thoroughly based on your values

Doing so enables you to make a confident decision of whether to stay at your current job, or pursue opportunities in another workplace, another industry, or outside of work entirely.

No other course out there specifically tackles whether to stay or part ways with your job. A hundred courses explain how to pick a career and go jobhunting. A hundred others will promise greater control over your life. But not one of them can give you a definitive yes or no answer of whether to stay at your job.

“I wasn’t sure of my next career move, and this course helped me define where I’d be the happiest, bringing me clarity, hope, and a plan of action."

Frequently Asked Questions

Don’t you pretty much cover this stuff on the podcast?
A little but not really. Career decision-making comes up a bit occasionally. However, not in a systematic, step-by-step way. And also not with video and slides. And also not with all the handy bonus tools like the options calculator spreadsheet, guides, etc.

Didn’t I already get the goods from the assessment and video?
No. Those represent about 15% of all the goodies in the course. So, it’s a representative taste but far from complete.

What exactly happens when after I buy this?
As soon as you purchase the course, you get immediate access to all eight course modules, plus all the bonuses. There’s no “dripping” of content bit by bit. Rather you can go to any and every part of the course instantly. These modules are yours to access anytime, 24/7 forever. There are no recurring fees.

Seconds after purchase, you’ll receive an email with your exclusive course login. From there you can click, scroll, and tap your way around the gorgeous course platform. You can easily go to exactly the part you want. You can also download or print all content in all formats (.MP4 video, .MP3 audio, .PDF slides, .PDF transcripts and bonus guides, .XLS options calculator). So you’re free to watch offline on a plane, read on a Kindle, listen during the commute, mark up with multicolored pens and post-it notes as you sip a warm beverage gazing out a window, etc.

Just how much time does the course take to complete?
There’s about 5 total hours of content in there. (Fun fact: that puts the direct cost per learning hour used under typical training cost benchmarks). Some people like to binge it all in a weekend. Others prefer to schedule easy 25-minute blocks once or twice a week. Most of the lessons fit within that 25-minute timeframe.

Will you make me jump through hoops if I want a refund?
Not at all. Some courses demand that “prove” that you’ve “done the work” before granting a refund. I don’t care for that approach.  Simply email me or call 877.207.4978 within 90 days of enrollment. It takes less than two minutes. There’s no fee or penalty or anything. I’ll even eat the credit card processing fees. And we can remain friends.

I don’t like the pressure of a deadline; what’s up with that?
The deadline is there in order to assemble a cohort of people for the community Slack channel, accountability partner pairing, and group Q&A session scheduling. So, this would not be possible if one person bought it each week over the course of the year. Rather, having 52 people enroll in one bundle is much better for the community experience.

Something else?
Email ( or call (877.207.4978) and I'm happy to answer anything on your mind.
