Stuck between going to office and working on your business idea? OR
Stuck between going to office and (fill this with what you really want to do)?
While you fill that, you will know what is important to you. If you’re lucky then you might just be in the right place already.
Sometimes the thin line of crossing over to the other better side isn’t quite visible. It might just be the time to quit that job you’re in but such decisions are not taken in haste. What we often fail to comprehend is that we always have a choice. If the first choice doesn’t work, you can make another, then make another, and keep making until you achieve whatever that is you always wanted to.
Some of the success stories that’ll go in history would’ve not been what they are if these individuals stopped trying; Walt Disney, Steve Jobs, Oprah Winfrey, JK Rowling, Mark Zuckerberg & we can go on.
They are not superheroes. They are individuals who never gave up.
We don’t want to be too philosophical. We just want you to realize that quitting a dead end; non-satisfying job is the best thing that can ever happen to you.
We’ll ask you a set of questions, and if your answer is yes to most, then quit your current job & focus on what really matters to you. Go for that job, go for that business idea or take a break. Do what really matters to you because this is not how you were meant to live your life.
Does everyday feel like a Monday morning to you?
Why we don’t like Mondays is because it takes us back to the routine. It is an indicator of what we’re going to do for the next week & nobody likes to do the same thing every day…rather, nobody likes to hear about a routine specially the way Monday spells it out. If you feel like this every single day then it’s not worth the effort. If in the morning you don’t feel happy about going back to work, then how do you spend the entire day being unhappy?
Do you spend a lot of time on social media while you’re at work?
We visit social media to pass time or catch up with what our friends are up to. Spending a lot of time on social media during office hours is inappropriate unless you’re actually doing some work related to social media. If you do this more than often & you’d rather finish watching your neighbour’s Snapstory than replying to that email from your co-worker, then you know this is not the place for you.
Do you find it hard to come up with new ideas or deliver projects on time?
John R Wooden says, “Don’t let what you cannot do interfere with what you can do.”
The sooner you realize what you can’t do the faster you’ll start doing what you can. And not being able to do something is no way a flaw because no one is designed to be able to do everything. Yet most of us end up in jobs which don’t satisfy us but we still continue because of the fear of not finding our dream job, not being able to crack our own business idea, and so many reasons. But we’ll tell you, it’s always worth trying at least once.
Do you keep fighting with people around you?
If you’re not happy about your job at the moment then nothing around you will help you grow or keep you at peace. As a result, you will get into unnecessary arguments with your co-workers & sometimes your boss. You will make best friends with employees who feel exactly the way you do & you’ll find yourself bad mouthing the company all the time on your smoke break, or lunch break or over drinks. Literally, all the time. Nobody benefits from this, but you should be concerned only about yourself.
It’s never too late to realize what you’re really meant to do & there is no age to fulfill a dream. Hopefully this piece of article will help you make an informed decision about your life.
