Is it time to move on to a new job

Is It Time to Move On to a New Job?

Is it time to move on to a new job

How do you know when it is time to move on to a new job? Most people either move too fast or too slow. See how to get it right.

We discuss timing a change of jobs on The BIGG Success Show today. The following is a summary of our discussion.

Knowing when it’s time to move on is one of the toughest decisions we ever make. Carlin Flora writes about this in an article entitled Adieu to All That, published in Psychology Today. She says that, when thinking about moving on to a new job, there are two extreme kinds of people: quitters and lingerers.

Quitters leave too soon

The grass isn’t always greener. These people miss out on the opportunities that come to those people who dedicate themselves to an organization. Changing jobs and/or careers is not a sure-fire way to advance your career. Sticking with the job you have may serve you better.

Lingerers stay too long

These people are at the other end of the spectrum. They miss out on the alternatives being created in a dynamic marketplace. Staying put doesn’t mean moving up the corporate ladder. You may be better served by moving on to a new job and/or career.

Here are three things to know about moving on that can help when making this BIGG decision…

1) Understand your underlying fears

Quitters may suffer from an abnormal fear of intimacy. Lingerers may have an inordinate fear of failure.

Understand what’s driving your desire to consider leaving or staying. Face your fears so you make the best decision for your future.

2) Learn from your past experiences

Analyzing past exits will help you avoid making the same mistakes again. Did you burn a bridge? Did you hurt others? What caused you pain as you recalled the event?

Think carefully about what you did right and what you would change, if given the chance. Then apply that to your current situation to guide you to make the right decision.

3) Cut yourself some slack

Once you’ve made your decision, accept it. Or change it. Just don’t continue to fret about it on and on and on.

We live our lives in eras. We have many eras running simultaneous through our lives at all times. It’s only natural that one or more of these eras is coming to an end at any given point in our lives. Learning when it’s time to say when, and how to do it, will make your job and/or career transitions smoother. Timing your move smartly leads to BIGG success!

Here’s to your BIGG success!

It’s easier than you might think to achieve financial freedom – even in the midst of a pandemic.

That’s because time is on your side, when it comes to money. It’s a financial concept called the time value of money.

We discuss how to manage personal, professional, and financial change on The BIGG Success Show today. Here’s a summary of that discussion.

Ben Franklin said, “Nothing is certain except death and taxes.”

The question is: are you leading change in your life or is it leading you?

As technology continues to develop, change is occurring more and more rapidly. Isn’t it safe to assume that, in the future, this will continue?
