Are you sick and tired of your job?
I’ve been there too. In fact, I vividly recall hating my job so much that I began plotting ways I could get fired. This lasted months. Until one day I got a call from a friend who had left the same company months before. He wanted to talk with me about an opportunity with his new company and I jumped at the chance.
After several conversations, I accepted the job and the same day, I gleefully typed up my letter of resignation. I went to deliver it to my boss who was on the phone at the time. Not wanting to wait until she was finished with her call, I dropped my letter on her desk and walked back to by cube doing the happy dance the whole way!
Making a change takes effort
I got lucky! I didn’t have to scour the job boards seeking my next opportunity. Or maybe it wasn’t luck. Before my friend left the company, I had a conversation with him, wishing him luck and suggesting he keep me in mind in case he heard about anything. That’s why he reached out.
There’s a saying that goes something like
in order to make a shift, the pain of staying has to be greater than the pain/fear of leaving.
Are you feeling the pain?
