Should I quit my job? How do I know when it’s the right time? What if I fail?
These questions tortured me for six months before I ripped off the damn Band-Aid.
You know I freakin’ love analogies, so get ready one is coming.
Leaving a solid career or job that you don’t loooove anymore or maybe you never truly did, that is paying you well but not what you deserve, is like knowing you need to break off a relationship with the “but they are so nice” person. There are some things that feel so comfy and convenient, but it untimely leaves you joyless. Insert the guy I was dreading breaking up with because he was so good at setting up and managing all of the electronics in my house and business….plus “he was so nice.”
Smart companies purposely design comp packages to give you just enough to be comfortable that it would be scary to leave. Hell I even had a company car, credit card, stock options, and giant office supply budget.
Leaving a crappy job with a miserable boss with low pay is like breaking up with an A-hole, way easier, and you know there is something better out there.
Whichever scenario you find yourself in, ONE fact is the same, you aren’t happy. Most of us were taught that making great money and enjoying your work rarely exist together, and that’s one of the saddest lies that has been passed down for generations.
