- 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:
- Am I panicking?
- Who am I influencing?
- 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.
