8 Reasons to Quit Job As Soon As Possible
Life’s too short. Life’s too short to go home every day feeling mentally tired. Life’s too short to have a terrible boss. Life’s too short to go home every day feeling taken less than seriously, or feeling not appreciated enough.Life’s too short to not be as happy as you can be.
Of course, you don’t want to go this way anymore, so we have compiled a list of reasons indicating it may be time to quit your job:
1.Your input and ideas are ignored.
Everyone has ideas. And everyone loves when his or her ideas are taken seriously–and implemented. The feeling that you’ve contributed in a special way is incredibly gratifying.
But when your boss or company shoots down or even laughs at your ideas, it’s not only insulting, it’s demotivating. And pretty soon you stop caring.
2.You’re bored all the time.
If you’re no longer challenged in your position and have tried communicating with your boss to no avail, this may be a reason to leave.
Although boredom is a very standard feeling,every job should also have some fun moments. Or exciting moments. Or challenging moments.If you’re spending most of your workday on the internet shopping or playing games, or if you’re checking the time frequently at work, those are key indicators.
3.You get criticized in front of others.
All the employees need constructive feedback. We all need a little nudge. We all need to be told when we can do something better–and how to do it better.But this things should be told in private.
It’s not constructive to walk around waiting for the next time you’ll be criticized–and even humiliated–in front of other people.
4.You’ve got the boss from hell.
As the management professor Merideth Ferguson once said, most people quit bosses, they don’t quit jobs.
Your boss’ attitude doesn’t just affect your time at work; it actually affects other important aspects of your life.If you’ve tried everything to make it work and your life is simply unbearable, then it’s time to visit your favorite job board.
5.You feel like you have no purpose.
Every employee likes to feel a part of something bigger. Everyone likes to feel they make an impact not just on results but also on the lives of other people.
Going home every day feeling like you’ve worked… but you haven’t accomplished anything meaningful makes you even more convinced quiting your job.
6.You don’t see a future.
Your job should lead to something: a promotion,growing in skills, more money or new challenges. Tomorrow should have the potential to be different–in a good way–from today.
A great boss works to improve the company’s future. A good boss works to improve her employees’ futures, too, even if–especially if–that might mean some of those employees will eventually move on to bigger and better things.
Hope is that which motivate us to face everyday challenges.
7.You’re never told, “Thanks.”
Everyone also needs praise. We all need to know when we do something well (and everyone, even a poor performer, does some things well).
If you are not recognized for the contributions you make,you don’t have the proper motivation to do things for good.
8.You worry about money all the time.
It’s true that most of us worry about money often, but if this worry is constantly on your mind and it’s not because you’re a shopaholic, then maybe you’re not getting paid enough.Speak to management about this. Make sure your argument as to why you should be paid more is applicable
If the company doesn’t agree ,then it might be time to find a company that doesn’t make you feel like they’re doing you a favor by paying you.
