We are all in pursuit of our dream job, and while some of us may already be settled into the perfect career, others of us are questioning the roles we’re currently in. At some point or another, all of us have asked ourselves, should I quit?
We’ve weighed the pros and cons, had discussions with our loved ones and mentors, and made decisions about our jobs based on the outcome of these lists and conversations. But, when do we really know that it’s time to leave a job and pursue something different? Are there situations where we might need to dig in our heels, endure the frustration, and stay longer than we thought we would? In today’s world of living-for-the-moment and chasing our dreams, how do we view jobs that may not be our passion?
Here are some thoughts to consider while discerning whether we need to tough it out in the job we’re in or turn in our two weeks notice.
