At some point in our life, we’ll reach at the juncture where we will tell yourself, “This is not what I want.”
“I’ve had enough. I am changing my career.”
There can be many reasons for you to say what you have said – limited growth opportunity, mismatch of interest, not what you have studied, not enough challenge, boring and repetitive tasks, low salary, unattractive benefits, tired with the customers, and many others.
But it’s always easier said than done.
You never know whether you are making the right decision and move or not. The last thing you want to happen is coming back to the same juncture two years down the road, telling you the same thing. Which means you go back full circle to where you started before. Worse, you will be on the losing end with precious time and resources wasted.
Should you go ahead, or should you hold your decision first? How long you need to wait? Are you changing your career due to some unrelated dilemma and frustration?
