In general, quitting anything isn’t looked favorably upon by the outside world. But there are multiple cases when quitting is actually a good course of action.
Or, when you leave a job you hate — without a backup option lined up.
I was beyond excited when I got a text from a friend the other day that said they had quit their job (which I had known they hated for several years) and didn’t have another job lined up yet. Most people would think/say “what are you? crazy? In a down economy, that’s a horrible decision.” My response? “Super proud of you.”
When you hate your job? And when you have enough confidence in your own ability to chart your own path?
I know you’ll be glad you did.
