Congrats! Your Quitting Stage is:
Stage 1: Foundations
Out of the 3 Quitting Stages, you’re in the first stage, the Foundations. So what does that mean?
While you’re not ready to quit just yet, you have taken the first important step of realizing there is a problem in your career and trying to solve it. Bravo!
Most people never even take this step. They accept society’s programming that “work isn’t supposed to be fun”, suck it up, and push through the dread. In fact, Gallup’s recent poll shows that 85% of employees are unhappy or disengaged from their jobs.
So simply questioning whether it’s time to make a change is a huge step in deciding your future with intention.
The purpose of this guide is to help you figure out your very next steps so you don’t get overwhelmed and stuck trying to figure out the whole path. We want to make sure that if and when you decide to quit, it’s from a place of calm, rational choice and not reactive panic. This guide will take out the guesswork and get you on your way to identifying the actual problem and figuring out how to solve it.
Where you are now:
You know there is something wrong here. You know your career and work can be more fulfilling than this
You might have some ideas about what you could do from here but you’re not sure.
You’re a fantastic employee and that often gets taken advantage of. You put everyone else’s needs above your own, you take work home on nights and weekends, you work more hours than you’re paid, and on and on.
You haven’t planned for an exit and don’t know what your next steps will be.
