Quit your job ASAP!

Quit your job ASAP!

If you have that sense of wanting more or even if you’re just good old pissed off with your job and all it doesn’t have to offer, quit ASAP!

I’m only 30 and I’ve had quite a number of jobs and in varied roles. I’ll admit this article is probably better suited to those that are easily bored or still searching for whatever it is you feel you were meant to be doing in life. I fit this category, I’m very easily bored or maybe not quite bored but I like change and trying new things.

I know many of you reading this will be, or will have experienced the feelings of knowing that you’re just a number in an organisation with many numbers. We will all know or remember that one person in the office that make you roll your eyes daily. There’s that person with a weekly drama that involves more work landing on your desk. You will all know those managers that mistake the title ‘Manager’ for ‘President of the World’ and behind them there’s often that other colleague with a tint of brown around their nose. There’s always a jobsworth, everything done by the book, a book that was written by some imbecile that has never actually worked on the floor before.

How many of you write statuses on Facebook or Twitter on a Monday morning damning the week ahead then updating them on Friday morning expressing your glee that the weekend is upon you. Even more so, an Instagram post of you with a can of lager or glass of wine telling everyone how lucky the other ‘numbers’ at work are that you haven’t committed a random act of violence in their honour. I see it all and all too often. Is this simply out of habit and because it’s just the done thing nowadays, or are people genuinely unhappy in their chosen work environment?

I’ve used the word ‘chosen’ in the last sentence because where you are right now is a result of all the choices you’ve made. This makes me ask the question, if you’ve made all these choices to land in this position of unhappiness regarding work, then why not start making new choices today and build a new path to get you out of it and into something that will make you get out of bed in a morning with a smile? OK maybe that’s pushing it, who wants to get out of bed in a morning, but you know what I mean.

You might now be asking, but how do I do that? What about money? I still don’t know what I want to do? I’d respond by saying, just take a jump into the unknown. Obviously plan to make sure you can still pay your bills and be smart about it but, the way I see it is, I could stay in my office job or retail job or driving job and be stable and watch the years go by and keep my Monday and Friday social media updates on the same depressing loop for the next 30 years. Or, I could try new things, find new things, experience things I never thought I would. I could fail at some things or be crazily successful at something, I could be happy living life.

If any of the above relates to you, then maybe ask yourself what position you’d like to be in when you hit, let’s say 50. Do you want to look back on a 25-30 year career that’s bored you to tears but steadily paid the bills and had enough left over for your Friday night much needed tipple. Or, do you want to have hundreds of stories and years of experience in what seems every department of life that you can pass on to younger generations, kids, grandchildren?

My wife and I have plans in motion for our family that will mean happiness is a priority whilst also making a living, will we fail, will we be a success, who knows but we will be doing it together and for our family and that makes us happy so we win either way!

Let me know your thoughts and experiences, all the social media links are up at the top, or should be ๐Ÿ˜€

PS. If you quit your job and then can’t pay your rent, using the excuse DadvWorld said to do it might not work ๐Ÿ™‚

    Love the article. Too many of us will moan about our current situation but don’t really know what to do or have the know how to elevate us from the rut.

    I’ve read your post a few times over the last while and it keeps coming back to me. I would give anything to be a work from home parent and I’m working towards achieving that in the next two years. Thanks for the positive vibes this post sends me! #BinkyLinky

    I’d love to work from home, but I like the stability that an officer job, albeit part time offers. One day though, you never know! Thanks for linking up to the #BinkyLinky

    This is sort-of what I do. Yes, I’m a stay at home dad but I combine this with blogging and writing. That said, for many people taking such a leap once they have kids is very, very difficult. Maybe I’m just a bit cavalier??? #BinkyLinky

      Maybe a little cavalier ism is the future! There’s no worse feeling than waking up 5 days a weeks dreading the 8 hours you have ahead of you wondering how and why you ended up here. Sometimes a little risk taking is required if you want a smile on your face. ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ˜€

    Great post. I’ve actually done this twice in my work career.

    1st I left a great job as a financial adviser when I turned 30 and took a year out as I’d worked since I was like 18. After that year out, I joined a great tech start up called ‘Pubble’ (you should check them out http://www.pubble.io) and stayed for over 5 years until recent health issue forced me to give up work completely. However the sliver lining is that I’m now a full time SAHD and a blogger and I swear if fits me like a glove. Ain’t no time like the family time :-).

    It can be done, if you’re not happy – change the situation. Life is too short not to be happy.

    Cheers for the good vibes man (and your an Evertonian too, sweet!).

      Everton!!!! Thanks mate! I do have an Everton blog/page I’m hoping to reignite ready for the new era. Yeah too many people waste too many years unhappy! I’ll check pubble out, I’m glad you’ve found your calling, me too. I’m still new to the game but I love blogging and now vlogging, hopefully I can make a career out of it. If not I’ll still be smiling ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ˜€

      • 5th July 2016 / 8:59 pm
