“A Pleasant Quit” & When should I quit my job (PART 1)
The next question, When should I quit?
When should someone quit their job? It is very easy to answer in some cases. Just be honest with yourself and have a clear goal of life, you always know when a job is no longer suitable for you. In other cases, It is a hard-answered question. Most people are often dishonest about themselves or have no clear goal.
At first glance, this seems weird. But, just take your eyes around your workplace. I am sure that you will realize, the number of people who really love their work are few. Additional, fewer people have goals. Most of them like to depend on “Fate”
First, this is a consequence of education. It leads to many adults still not knowing what job they love or what their talents are.
Worse, Most people do not take time to ask questions about what they want to do in life. In other words, how they want to live a life. So, they transferred that responsibility to their parents, their relatives, their friends, their boss also.
“Parents wanna me have a stable job”
“My friends love to have a high-end salary”
“Girlfriend wants me to become a manager”
“My boss wants me to learn more”
All of these become the criteria to choose the jobs of many people.
They try to follow those criteria, which will become a nightmare in the future. And then, THEY QUIT.
Many people quit their jobs at the age of over 30, because they realized that they did a job, they did not like. Then, meeting a career crisis when they found the right way to their favorite job. Let’s imagine, you are being an intern at the age of 30.
So, the question “When should I quit my job?” is really an easy question, if you know exactly what you need for yourself. On the other side, it may lead to an incorrect decision.
As someone who sells goods just because the job is easy to be recruited, then he quit because he is scolded by his boss. After that, he goes around the companies and realizes that most of the sales bosses scold the staffs. It is just different in level of scolding.
If you are a seller and can not stand it, do not start selling anything right from the beginning. Many people take years to determine the level of scolding that they can stand.
Of course, as I told you. You choose a job that you do not like. This is the reason why you can quit at any time. It is not closely related to your work environment, your boss, salary, benefits,…
When you do not like something, everything relates to it that will be become a trigger.
When you do not know what you like is, and the employers do not know what you like is.
Yeyyyy! Congratulation! It is a Boom
If you decide to endure a job that you don’t like or you don’t know if you love it. You must at least identify why you need to endure it. For example, how much money do you need? why do you need that much money? How much money will you make in years?. That’s when you know you should quit.
It is also the moment that employers know you should leave, if they really care about your motivation. But, Let me tell you good news, it is only 3% of employers have the ability to identify motivation through the interview.
I am also wondering, 3% is too much??
The rest of the employers just want (or be forced) to fill the recruitment KPI, so they won’t care about your motivation.
So at the end of this blog, What is the moment you should quit?
From the above sharing, you can easily realize that you should (or need) quit, when:
You don’t have any reasons to endure this job.
Honestly, people do not quit their jobs when they should (or need) to quit. They quit because they want. If you have ever learned to make decisions, you will know that is your mistake in the first step
You do not distinguish what you want and what you really need.
