Your job is your source of income to maintain your family and your needs. It’s crazy to even think about quitting your job, right? But money is not the only thing you should consider. Job satisfaction also plays an important role in your life.
When you stop feeling satisfied with your line of work, it’s time to quit, or else you’ll be stuck at a dead-end job, or worse – your work frustrations will start affecting your personal life.
When To Quit Your Job
So answer this question – do you enjoy your work?
If your answer is a definite “YES”, it shows your love for the work you do. You can stop reading now.
However, if you hesitate with your response, then it might be an indication of low, or complete lack of, job satisfaction. You are likely to suffer from stress from work.
Job satisfaction is an important tool in determining the level of happiness in a person. Loathing your job and yet not being able to do anything about it can result in negativity inside you, spilling into the quality of your work, and ruining your life outside work.
At this stage, you should try to observe what is stopping your job to be the best job in the world for you. Figuring out these issues can help you solve this feeling of low job satisfaction.
How to Quit Your Job
Maybe you’re tired of the office politics, or aren’t comfortable with the duties and responsibilities assigned to you at work anymore. Keep in mind that the pandemic situation is still affecting our psyche, what with new work-from-home norms, lockdowns, vaccination stress, and what not.
Whatever your reasons, try to find solutions before you do something as drastic as quitting your job.
Yes, quitting your job is a solution too. But it’s not the only solution.
Maybe you can talk to your boss, or even your colleagues, to look for solutions. In the worst case scenario, take some time off instead of quitting your job right away.
During this time off, do some mental digging to define your dream job, and search for it online, in the newspaper, or even through friends.
NEVER quit your job without a backup plan.
You’ve been on the job for some time now, haven’t you? So don’t just up and quit away right now. Take time to get another job first, a job that’s exactly like (or at least similar to) your dream job.
