3 Questions to Ask Before You Quit Your Job
I hear it every day, “quit your job and chase your dreams.” People are talking about it, writing books about it, and most certainly thinking about it during the most boring moments at work (let’s admit it, you’re actually reading this during one of those moments, aren’t you?) It seems like our culture is captivated with this idea.
I’m captivated with this idea, as well. My life’s work is to help people identify what it is that they most want to give to the world and to help them step into it. Quitting your job may be part of the process of stepping into work that has more meaning and a deeper impact. In fact, it’s a part that I really love to see happen (I mark these moments with fist pumps and dance parties).
In spite of all of this, I get pretty nervous about the way many conversations about quitting go.Sometimes it seems like we get more excited about the job we’re quitting than we are about the work we’re pursuing.
I want to offer some guidance in helping you know when to quit and when to stay in order to help you do the work you’re called to when the time is right.
Here are 3 big questions to ask to determine if it’s time to leave or stay:
1. Do you have a plan?
Do you know where you’re going and how to get there? If you don’t know what you want or how to get it, then quitting is not the best place to start. Don’t quit until you have a definite direction and a plan to get there.
If you don’t know what you want, focus your energy on that question. And if you do know what you want, focus on making a plan and doing as much as you can while still in your job. Are there skills you need to be developing before you quit? Is there research you could be doing? Are there people you could be networking with?
