Hating your job might not be a good enough reason to quit unless you have another job lined up. There might also be other reasons you should keep your job or wait for a better time to tender your resignation. You might even be able to turn things around and learn to love the place where you work.
That said, there are circumstances beyond your control where quitting may be your only viable option. In this video, Jordan Peterson will teach you how to choose the best time to make the exit.
Most often attributed to Confucius, the saying “Find a job you love, and you will never have to work a day in your life” is easy if your job aligns with your personality.
For example, a very social person might love a job as a salesperson, while a shy person might find that job difficult and even disagreeable.
Most people spend between eight and 10 hours per day working. So it’s important to choose a job that provides physical or emotional benefits.
If you are just entering the workforce or considering a career change, you may be struggling to decide what path to take. In this video, Jay Shetty describes the reasons why people sometimes can’t decide on a career and he explained how to choose the right career path for you.
