A little wisdom from Austin Kleon’s friend Mark:
Advice on leaving (your place of birth, social media platforms, etc.): Make sure you’re running toward something, and not just away from something!
Panicking and hitting the road is not enough. You’ll need a destination. Sooner or later.
If you have one in mind or know what you’re aiming for, it can make all the difference in your exit too.
Now if that’s not a year-end epithet, I don’t know what is.
