How to Know When It’s Time to Quit Your Job

If you consistently struggle to find the motivation to go to work, it may be time to explore other options. Taking control of your own destiny and never having to work for someone again is a dream that most people have at some stage of their career. This can be extremely difficult to do. It involves a careful assessment of your strength and weaknesses, your position in life and your financial situation. But when? To help you, here are some signs when it’s time to quit your job.

How to Know When It’s Time to Quit Your Job

You feel bored with your workload.

Feeling stagnant or bored at work is a sure sign you are not challenged enough, or it could be that you really have no interest in the work you are doing. We even find troubles getting to work. Even the commute to work is now a heavy task. If you feel this way look for a role where you can have a mentor of your own that gives you the opportunity to work on projects who will be excited for.

You don’t feel recognized for your hard work.

Everyone has a different motivator for the work they do, but for many it is simply being recognized for the hard work they do. A simple “good job” from time to time or getting a monetary bonus goes a long way. Whatever it is, being recognized for a job well done is a great motivator-and without it, it’s easy to become burned out.

You don’t get along with your co-workers.

Toxic co-workers can make you dread going to work. You spend most of your day at your job; if you don’t like the people around you, it is understandable why you wouldn’t want to be there. This shouldn’t be the sole reason for you to leave your job, though (unless, of course, the person you do not get along with is your supervisor). This could really be a deal breaker.

When you’re doing more work for the same pay.

If you are in a role where your responsibilities are increasing, but your pay is not; then it’s time to either ask for a raise or find another job. Don’t let someone take advantage of your work ethic. There are plenty of other jobs that are willing to pay you more for your hard work or you could be making more if it were your own business.

Dreaming of becoming your own boss.

Daydreaming is normal; but when you’re daydreaming about being the boss of a company, chances are you really don’t like following orders anymore. You would rather be managing your business than going to a regular 8-to-5  job. If you have reached this point, then you are long ready to start your own business.

You’re not learning anymore.

If your job is not helping you grow anymore, it might be time to turn in your resignation. When you’ve outgrown your position and there is no opportunity for advancement or you seem to work the same job every single day without any opportunity for growth, maybe it’s time to leave.

What if you turn your passion into a profitable startup? Or if you already have a small business on the side, why not go full-time? Imagine you could travel more, have a great ownership of your time and work in your PJ’s. No more annoying co-workers, no more dreadful commutes and no more boss! In fact following your passion has been scientifically proven to make you happier. Passion provides the spark for you to focus on what you love to explore. Dopamine rapidly kicks in to sustain your focus over long periods of time and during increasingly challenging tasks, actions and goals that are in the service of your passion.

If you plan to start a business soon or if you already have one, don’t forget to make it legal.
