Does this sound familar? You are hyperactive and mighty on your first year, and then you plummet like a roller coaster by the time you hit your fifth year. You are were one of the high-flyers in the company, but these days you’re not giving your best. You’ve lost the spark, the passion, and the flame – you finally want to quit.
You want to quit, but you’re not sure why, and you can’t put your finger on it. Maybe you hate your new boss, you’re fed up with the perceived incompetence of people in your organization, you got an invitation from a recruiter on LinkedIn, or you simply don’t feel excited about your job anymore.
Quitting your job can be a good thing when you know that the timing, and your reasons, are right.
