How to Change Your Job for Good
"Choose a job you love, and you will never have to work a day in your life."- Confucius

For some people getting a job is the hardest part. For others keeping the job they have is harder. It might sound surprising, but in a survey conducted by YourNextLeap with over 3000 online respondents 66% of them were not satisfied with their current job within one year.

When Should You Say “I Quit” ? 

1: When You Feel Entrepreneurship is For You

"When I finished school, I took my entire life savings – $5,000 – and invested it in a business. I was young. I was inexperienced. But I was an entrepreneur, and I was proud. And in six weeks, I was broke."- Mark Warner

Not everyone is cut out to become an entrepreneur. For those who do believe in their skills and abilities, they can make a fortune doing so.

While you are doing a job, you are stuck in the corporate race. There is little room for innovation and you’ll be always under someone else’s command. If you choose the entrepreneurship path, you are free to innovate.

However, entrepreneurship comes with its own challenges. You have to hustle all throughout hoping to be a success at some point. You might have to work harder than your hardest working employee and still take a lower salary during the initial years. You may fail a couple of times before you see any success. But if you can live through all this without giving up, you can truly become a successful entrepreneur.

2: When the Current Job Takes a Toll on Your Health

Not many jobs give you the flexibility you want. Most jobs which include you to site stress yourself either mentally or physically can take a toll on your life in the long run. If you feel that your current job is going overboard, then it’s time to say “I Quit”.

3: When You Outgrow Your Current Role

You may have joined your current company as a fresher or a young executive. However, as time goes by you may outgrow your skill set required for the current role. If you cannot convince your manager that you need a promotion to a higher role, then it’s time for you to start looking for a job which gives you more exposure.

4: Your Career Goals No Longer Align With the Company Goals

“Where do you see yourself in 10 years” or “what are your career goals”. Almost all HR’s ask you these questions before you join the company during interview time. So they took you in because they thought your goals and the company goals match. So what happens when a mismatch comes?

It can either be because the company shifted its goals or you personally wanted to do something different after a few years. Whatever the reason might be, if you don’t see that your interests and the company interests don’t match up, it’s time to rethink about staying in your current job.

5: You Are Not Competent Enough

It might sound a bit harsh. But that’s the reality. In some cases, you are not just good enough. During the interview, you were capable of anything. However in real life, when it came to doing things you said you could, you might not be competent enough to deliver results. I’m not saying it’s you, but sometimes it maybe you!

6: Your Social Life Is Impacted

When you have a job that demands too much time from you, your social life may be affected. Although it’s good to dedicate yourself to your work, you must not allow your work to become your master. Always make sure that you have a healthy balance between work and “life”. If that balance is regularly getting upset, either think about optimizing your work so that it finishes faster or find another job that is less stressful.

7: Your Current Job is Boring

Unless you have truly uncovered your passion and working a job which involves it, you are going to find your job boring after sometime. If you find your current job boring, talk to your manager and take on different responsibilities. If that’s not possible, try moving to another department. If all else fail, say “I Quit”.

It's Your Time to Decide : When do you think people should say I quit? Is there any way we can turn the negative into positive? Let me know in the comments.
