Are Your Reasons for Quitting Your Job Good Enough?

Sometimes we get up in the morning and just say "I don't want to go to work anymore." It could be because you just love the feel of your soft bed and pillows, in which case a nice hot cup of coffee can shake off that feeling. Most times, however, we really don't want to go to work. We want to quit. There are a lot of reasons that may make us do so, but are these reasons really good enough to risk being unemployed for a month or more? Sometimes they are. Sometimes they're not. You should take the time to evaluate your reasons for quitting before submitting that resignation letter.

Good Reasons

If you want to quit your job, you have to have a perfectly good reason for it.
  1. Health Issues

    One good reason to quit is if you're already stressed to the point of being ill. Stress may be all in the head, but the body responds in a way that's not always to the best of our health. If your work is getting in the way of you and a healthy lifestyle, then it is not worth it.

  2. Doing Things Not In the Job Description

    Remember when you got a job offer from the company you're working for? They state exactly what the job entails and expect you to understand it before putting your name on the dotted line. If you feel like your workload is getting bigger and bigger each month, chances are you've been ninja'd; that your boss saw your potential and showered you with work that he should have been doing. This happens way more often than people realize, and it is a good enough reason to leave unless you're promoted or offered a higher salary.


Shallow Reasons


There are innumerable shallow reasons for quitting your job, but it almost always falls in the same category: co-worker problems.

It could be a co-worker just being an all-around jerk. It could be because of someone in the office you like hooking up with someone else. It could be that your best buddy in the office was fired. It could be that your boss is nastier than an army drill sergeant. While emotional roller coasters can affect you, it may not affect the work you do. And if you love the work you do, then it's not a good enough reason to quit. All in all, for these reasons, it's your call.

Deeper Reasons

Sometimes, you just lie awake at night thinking about how you can be more productive tomorrow because you were out of your game today. Sometimes you're just miserable at work. You don't know why and you figure it's not a good enough reason to leave the company.

  1. Skills Not Utilized to the Fullest

    If you've having that nagging feeling where you every day is the same old grind and your skills aren't being tapped, then you may want to consider going someplace else. You applied for that company to put your talents to use, and if you're not okay with being denied that opportunity, you may find worthy challenges elsewhere.

  2. Not the Job You Wanted

    Getting a job just for the sake of having a job is one of the biggest mistakes one can make. It's like taking up engineering when you wanted to be a nurse. Everyone should be given a chance to pursue their dream jobs, and you should do so if your current one isn't.

It helps to look forward to when you have already resigned. Most times, people say that it was a mistake to quit their jobs because they're either bored or have no source of income. What would life be for you after you quit? Imagine it. If it really is a better world than you're currently in now, then it should be time for you to throw in the towel.

Online shopping sites are making a lot of money with the use of web-based applications to sell products, collect payments an arrange delivery. The only work left to do is pack and send the boxes.

Building Blocks for Virtual Businesses : Key technological systems you must have to succeed in the remote business world

This is a guest post by Ripley Daniels about "Key technological systems you must have to succeed in the remote business world.

Whenever I tell friends I had a tough day at the office, they laugh at me. That's because they know I don't really have an office. I work very hard but I work for a company that is completely remote. Only a few of my co-workers ever go into an office at all and when they do, it's only for short periods of time. Our "office" is a virtual one. To us, the traditional office workplace is a thing of the past, alongside Tyrannosaurus Rex, the slide rule, and telephones where you stick your finger in a hole and turn a dial.
Unfortunately, none of this prevents me from having tough days. I still have them. But the reasons have nothing to do with the fact that my co-workers and I don't have a brick and mortar edifice that we can use to plan, strategize, hold our meetings, make presentations, discuss sensitive business topics, build relatio…
