  • Some extracts:

The time to look for a new job is when you don’t need one. The time to switch jobs is before it feels comfortable. Go. Switch. Challenge yourself, get yourself a raise and a promotion. You owe it to your career and your skills.

3 questions to ask before quitting:

  1. Am I panicking?
  2. Who am I influencing?
  3. What sort of measurable progress am I making?

So, there’s tool number one. If quitting is going to be a strategic decision that enables you to make smart choices in the marketplace, then you should outline your quitting strategy before the discomfort sets in.
