How do you know when it’s time to leave a job you have been working for a while. Is it when it is no longer exciting? So then , I gues you would then have to set about deciding what your definition of exciting is…Maybe you leave when you have taken one TUMS too many in the same hour of the same day? I know you can’t leave a job every time you get upset; because if you did some of us would never work again.
I can say I have a rather strong work ethic. I do believe in working outside of the home; if possible. I try to believe in saving some money; still working on that. I certainly believe that I should try to give my job my best each day. Especially since I am dealing with other people’s kids; I feel obligated to come in and try to help each one of them reach some level of success. However, when do you stop looking at the warm fuzzy feelings that you get from working with your friends and watching kids be kids? When do you say to yourself that this is no longer about how much you like the people you work beside and realize that all this tongue wagging amounts to is procrastination? How do you distinguish the place where you should be from the place of complacency?
I have been thinking about this subject on off for the last couple years but not so much as I have been today. A person can only handle so many insults and innuendos before they reach their last straw. So, am I looking at the last straw or am I just having a bad emotional day; today? I guess, I’ll know more when I make it to work tomorrow. There is one thing I have no questions about. I have to keep this job until I find the next one.
Have you ever felt like it was time to leave your current job but you didn’t know where to go to next? Have you ever thought that it was time to embark on a new career area but you couldn’t decide which one? Have you ever been so afraid of making a wrong choice until you just didn’t make any decisions at all? Isn’t making no decision the same thing as making a negative decision any way.
In case you can’t tell, I am a little troubled today. If you know how I feel or can answer any of these questions; please feel free to comment.
