Does this sound familiar? You’ve been in the same job for fifteen years, you’re on your sixth administration (but, hey, who’s counting?), and it looks like it’s going to take a stick of dynamite to get you to jump ship. You know there’s something missing from your marriage and you have a feeling what’s missing is you, but you can’t bear to rock that comfortable old boat. You’re stuck. And, as bestselling author Judith Sills would say, you know the horse is dead. Get off!We all have our comfort zones—yourcoffee bar, yourpreference for half hazelnut/half decaf very light no sugar, yourseat on the 8:24, yoursame old fight over the holidays with your parents—and, indeed, they’re what make life possible. But the time comes when your comfort zone isn’t so comfortable anymore—when it’s keeping you from having a happier, more meaningful, and fulfilling life. If the Horse Is Dead, Get Off!is for anyone whose life has temporarily run aground, whether you’re stuck in a dead-end relationship, in a soul-killing job, or when your life just seems to have become one long summer rerun. The rewards for escaping your comfort zone are enormous. And Sills—who has helped thousands with her sage advice, dispensed in her signature go-get-’em style—has come up with a brilliant, excuse-busting seven-step plan that points a clear, inspiring way out.
