It is Thursday, Dan’t favorite day of the work week. Not everyone feels that way though. Some people don’t like any of the work days because of their job. That is today’s topic. There has been a mass movement of people quitting their jobs in the last several months. The reasons why vary considerably, but today we are going to be focusing on questions that you should ask yourself if you are unhappy in your current working conditions.

Quitting your job is a big decision that should not be taken lightly. However, working in the same job year after year if it is making you miserable is not a good way to go through life. If the thought of quitting has crossed your mind then take following questions into consideration and go from there. First, is this a fleeting feeling or one that you keep having over and over again? Everyone wakes up some days and simply don’t want to go to work. Dan loves his job, but there are certainly days he would rather be at the beach instead. That doesn’t mean he should quit his job. However, if you find that over and over you wake up dreading going to work and is now the norm instead of the exception then maybe it is time to consider making a change.
Next, ask yourself if you would like to aspire to have your boss’s job. Is your boss’s job something you could never see yourself wanting? Would you dread that job even more than the one you currently have? If that is the case then you are in a position where you could end up being stagnate. Without any desire to advance or move forward in the company you could see yourself becoming more unhappy as time goes on. In addition, do you feel like you are learning anything from your job? Developing any new skills? Again, a key to life is learning and progressing as a person. If you are in a stagnate position where you are simply trading your time for a paycheck it might be time to seek out something else.
Is the job negatively affecting your life? Is it causing you physical or mental health issues? Affecting relationships with people you love? Preventing you doing things in your life that truly bring your joy? Asking you to do something that is direct conflict with your values and goals? Those are really important questions to ask yourself.
Lastly, if you decide it is time to make a change, then make a plan first. There are plenty of jobs available out there, and there is no reason to quit today when you can properly plan things out and make sure you are doing what is best for your future. Life is too short to spend it miserable everyday. Access how you feel and what you want and then make a plan and execute it.
