Job security is, one of those few underrated luxury in life that is in scarcity. As the unemployment spreads its wings in the country, keeping your job secured has become a task over. Yet, a few us decided to quit. It could be your urge to travel or simply a job change or maybe any other reason out there.

If you have decided to quit your job or perhaps you are on the verge of quitting it, in either case here are the things you must reconsider before taking a final call.

1. Know the purpose

You are ought to be crystal clear about your purpose of quitting. Is it because you wish to enrol into higher studies or because you have gained a good offer? Do not stay stranded in the middle. Fix a purpose before taking up the step.

2. Is money driving you?

Hold on, take a deep breath and think. Is it money that is making you change your job or perhaps quit it? Are you completely in need of it or is it just a temporary temptation or greed (to be very honest). Think about it before you take a leap.

3. Circumstances that are making you quit it?

Find out what is it exactly that is making you quit? Is it your overtly annoying manager? Or the colleagues? Or perhaps it is the salary that you are working on. Analyze and introspect yourself. In case the problem lies with you, let me be frank here – QUITTING WON’T HELP AT ALL.

4. Are you being professional?

In case you have decided to it, make sure that you follow the procedure ardently. Every company has a set of rules and regulations that you need to go through before signing off. Don’t skip it at all.

5. Talk to someone

By someone, I mean a colleague who is trustable. Taking a different perspective of the same situation helps you in clearing your thoughts. This provides you with a better judgment opportunity. So, don’t keep it a secret share it with someone who is reliable in the office.

6. Keep a plan B ready

Plan B should ways be handy. Suppose you quit the job and fail in pursuing what you had quit for, then your plan B would come to the rescue. Never risk your career, NEVER.

7. Recheck the plan A

While your Plan B is there to rescue you, what about the Plan A? How foolproof is your Plan A? If you decide to quit because you want to travel then is the plan set? I the job offer in your hand going to contribute in your career? Be considerate towards these decisions.

Quitting a job is definitely a big leap. Hence, it is best to think once, twice, thrice or perhaps zillion time!

I am a writer who thinks a little too much over the simple things in life. I believe being a writer is both, a boon and a bane. It is definitely a boon to me and bane to everyone else. I am practical, impatient and ambitious. Writing is no longer merely a hobby to me rather a fulltime job since and I find self fortunate enough for this.
