When Its Time To Leave Your Job


Happiness in a job is critical – more critical than the money you earn or the uncertainty of trying to find a new job. We spend at least a third of our lives working; why would you want to spend all that time being unhappy?

Unhappy employees are far less productive and – whether you realize it or not – your unhappiness manifests itself on other employees, even if you don’t say anything. People know.

Is the grass greener on ‘the other side’? You’ll never know until you find out.

People hate losses, say Richard H. Thaler and Cass R. Sunstein, authors of “Nudge: Improving Decisions About Health, Wealth, and Happiness,” And “losing something makes you twice as miserable (than) gaining the same thing makes you happy.” They call this being “loss averse.”

We often are so focused on holding on to something we forget there are better things out there. The old saw, “the best time to look for a job is when you have a job,” maybe true; but it’s also a device for procrastination.

Don’t spend your life ‘stuck’ in a job. Ask yourself every morning if your truly excited about going to work. If the answer is no, you have your answer.

Life is too short.
