When you Quit Your Job!

I am dead, no career move, my boss is a ……! These are some comments we hear from those who are about to quit their respective jobs.

A number of such people find some sympathetic friends who would advise against quitting. They try to induce the fear factor……. Who is going to pay your rent, cell phone bill, cable…… gasoline…..etc.

Thinks about the key difference between a frustrated quitter and a planned quitter. The first one will remain frustrated and he has learnt to live that way. Whereas the later one already has a dream, a plan for the next move. His energy levels are high.

Boom, he quits and what next? ………. Challenges!

In my recent experience, the planned quitter, despite his tough challenges, quickly finds ways to proceed with his plan, although success may not be that quick. I know three persons that quit their jobs in search of nirvana. One is Zishan Jafri www.totaltravels.pk, 2nd is Ashraf Chaudhry www.ashrafchaudhry.com and the next one is Omair Ali www.twspk.com. They all went through challenging times, but survived and progressed.
Message: Plan ahead and stick to it.

Absolutely true. Jumping out in deep waters without being geared up to face it is suicidal and leads to more frustration. Corporate world has a lot to learn to mange your emotions , which may include anger, frustration, dissappointements etc amongst the negative emotions.Thos who dream, plan and jump have a good chance to swim through rough currents.
