Is there are “right time” to quit your day job?
Australia’s unemployment rate is lower than it’s been in many years. When the labour market is improving, that’s the perfect time to re-evaluate your job and your career.
You should ask yourself:
- Do you enjoy going to work each day?
- Do you have a passion for what you do?
- Does your current employment offer the flexibility that you need?
- Are you satisfied with your current employer?
- Are your efforts and accomplishments appreciated and rewarded?
- Does your current job provide a pathway to your career goals?
- Are you happy ‘doing what you’re doing’ for the next 5-10 years?
If you answered no to any of these questions, you may want to use the up and coming holidays and the Christmas break, to reflect on what you’d really like to be doing.
The end of the year is a perfect time to envision and reflect on where you want to be a year from now—and 5 to 10 years from now!
Why not take a closer look at your current job. There are 7 telltale signs that it’s time to move on.
You’re not excited about your work. When your alarm goes off in the morning, you’d rather go back to sleep. Your job is no longer fun, interesting, or challenging.
Your boss isn’t supportive or you’re just not on the same page. If you have had difficulty supporting your boss, or perhaps they’re no longer supporting you?. Most people experience conflict or differences of opinion with their manager of boss at some time. Many employees simply ‘outgrow’ their work environment.
You’re frustrated with the company bureaucracy and find it nearly impossible to accomplish anything important. There are too many barriers and too many hurdles to getting things done within your company structure.
There are constant reorganizations taking place and a revolving door of managers. This is very common place these days particularly with larger organizations. We all need some type of stability in our work lives.
Your job is too demanding and the workload so excessive that you have no time for family, friends, or other interests. You’re tired of doing so much ‘work after work’. You need more flexibility to be happy.
You’re not appreciated or rewarded. Your talents are underutilized and underappreciated. Your efforts are not rewarded.
It’s not getting you any closer to your career goals. There’s nothing worse than being stuck in a dead end job that isn’t taking you anywhere.
You’re simply not paid what you are worth. Despite the huge amount of effort you put in, you are not being paid what you are worth. There’s no payment for overtime and simply no incentives.
If you can relate to any of these, it’s time to take action! And this is the best time of year to do it!
Let’s face it, at the end of the day “Life is simply too short to not be doing something that you LOVE, something that you are passionate about, something where you can grow and achieve your goals, and most importantly something you can proud of.
If you have ever wanted to have your own work from home business, to be your own boss, call all the shots, work towards your own goals, to be paid what you’re worth, to enjoy the flexibility of working when and where you choose, and to achieve your dreams of having your own successful home business with unlimited earning potential, it’s time to take action.
