The decision to quit your job should be made with a lot of careful consideration. Popular culture has very much glamorized the idea of quitting one’s job. Triumphantly marching into your boss’s office, presenting him with your carefully crafted resignation letter, and finally being able to vent your frustrations and move on to greener pastures.
While that makes for a great movie scene, in reality we’ve got to realize that making a career change is not about “sticking it to the man”. It’s about strategically guiding our careers in a direction that will move us closer to our life’s purpose.
