stock_stressHow Do You Know When It’s Time To Go?

You’re not happy, but are you just having a bad week, or are there clear signs that the job is not working out? If you’re experiencing any of the following, it’s time to consider your exit strategy:

  1. You have physical and/or mental illnesses such as stomachaches, headaches, frequent crying (and fighting back tears at work), feelings of dread every Sunday evening or sleeplessness.
  2. You shop compulsively or use other ways to avoid negative emotions.
  3. Your “misery quotient” is high: energy is spent just surviving at work, and there is no joy.
  4. More than 15% of your work week is miserable.
  5. You continuously describe your job negatively to friends, family and others.
