Should You Quit Your Job?

The average Briton will spend 84,365 hours at work including 4,896 hours of overtime in their lifetime. They will also think about quitting their job, on average, 16 times a year. Does this seem low or high to you? If it seems low maybe, it’s time for you to take the leap and start a new chapter in your professional life. There are many reasons you might want to leave your job, some of them may be frivolous – “I’d rather be at home” or “I don’t like getting up early” – and moving jobs and companies won’t help you, but sometimes, the only way too not dread what’s left of those 3,507 days is to move on. Let’s take a look at some of the top reasons why you should quit your job and find something better this year.

No Growth
One of the main reasons that push professionals to leave their roles is slow or no growth. You may currently be in a position that doesn't support your personal and professional development, if that's the case maybe it's time to quit your job.

Another indication that you're in the wrong environment is to look at the path of promotion. If it seems like a lot of your peers have been stuck in the same position for years, and there isn’t a clear sign of progression, you should start looking for another role that will afford you that growth.



Underchallenged
If you’re in a job at a time of your life that you’re considering a career, you need to have a sense of challenge. If you’re happy and comfortable in your role then this won’t apply to you, but those trying to make it in their field, need to know that they’re growing and learning new skills.

If you've got all that you can get from a job and you want to grow further, it's just time for you to move on and find your next challenge.



Undervalued
No one wants to feel overlooked. If you're putting your very best into your work and are adding extra value to a company but don’t get anything in return, that should be enough to send you packing.

Sometimes being undervalued isn't a financial issue, some companies just have smaller budgets but ultimately you need to be recognized for your hard work. Something as simple as a thank you, a bonus or a perk of some kind goes a long way and it's just nice to know when you’ve done well.

Money is always a big issue too. If you feel like you’re being underpaid for the work you’re doing, find a new job. Always know what you’re worth, so if you know that you could be paid more somewhere else for what you’re currently doing, go with the money.



The Business Is Failing
You could go down with the ship, but you need to consider what it’s worth to you. Some employers will reward your loyalty, but some will take an ‘every person for themselves’ approach, when they're in danger.

You don't want to come in one day and find that the company you work for is in liquidation, leaving you with no job, no money and no options. Better to take things into your own hands, while you still can!



You Hate It
Yes, you have to work to make money and I'm sure a lot of people would hate being jobless a lot more than they hate their job, but you need to draw the line somewhere. if you’re going to bed every night dreading having to get up the next day because you hate your job and your work life is affecting your real life, it is time to let go! It isn’t worth your sanity.
