About this Blog

The Curmudgeon's Office blog is a spin off from my personal blog, Too Young To Be A Curmudgeon, which is full of random rants and thoughts I have on a whole host of topics. In an effort to be more organized, and also to attract a specific niche of followers, I decided to start a separate blog for my professional postings. At this blog, I'll post my tips, rants, and random thoughts on a host of professional topics from setting up a home office & office gadgets to 5S practices & time management.

Want to quit your job? New app does it for you via text message

The above link is to an article on Reuters. When I saw this headline three thoughts popped into my mind.

  • Are we that dependent on others or technology now, that we can't even leave a job on our own? 
  • Are people really such chronic quitters that they could utilize an app to make the process more efficient for them? 
  • Wouldn't quitting via text be just about the most unprofessional way to leave a position?
But after reading the article, I think this app may be a useful tool for setting and refining your career goals.

Reviewing and refining your career goals is something I strongly feel professionals should do on a regular basis, even if they have no intention of leaving their current position or employer. One of the best ways to improve yourself, in any aspect of your life, is to have measurable goals that one needs to review and adjust often.
