Should I stay or should I go?

This is gonna be a short one.

If you find yourself regularly fantasising about quitting your job, or at the very least, if you find yourself checking out mentally at work, I want to give you a question to ponder over that might help you bring some perspective on why you’re checking out and what it is you’re after in your next move. Whether that is to stick around, move up or move on.

Have a think, and after you’ve picked one of these two options, ask a friend or partner to ask you “Why is that important?” 5 times. You’ll give a slightly different answer every time, building on your answers that came before. I promise you it will lead to more insight about yourself and what you want and need in the workplace – and frankly, in your life.

Good luck, I’m curious to hear what this question brings up for you. Here’s a soundtrack to help you along.
