But check this out . . . you're already uncomfortable.
You're uncomfortable with how much you hate what you're currently doing.
You're comfortable about your relationship with your boss and co-workers.
You're uncomfortable with how much you feel like you don't belong here because the job and you just aren't a good fit.
You're uncomfortable with the hours, the commute, the monotony, the lack of creativity.
You're taking longer lunch breaks.
You find any excuse to get out of the office.
You count down every hour until you get to leave.
You think it's safe to stay where you are because it's comfortable receiving a reliable paycheck.
It's comfortable getting that matched 401K.
Having health insurance is comfortable.
So you hem and haw about leaving...until 2 more years go by and you're as miserable as ever.
So you stall the decision to leave.
Hear me though.
Making the decision to leave, or create a different job for yourself at your current work (yes, that is possible) does not mean you have to leave tomorrow.
Making a clear decision means you're programming your brain to find solutions to better your situation.
You can give yourself as much time as you want to turn in your resignation, or to create your ideal job description at your current job, talk to your boss and explore the possibility of doing that instead.
But make the decision.
Get out of limbo land.
Purgatory is an unnecessary pain.
Feel the power of your DECISION.
Then get to work.
Give yourself as much time as you need to make the changes.
And if you want weekly one-on-one guidance, accountability, and support to follow through on your decision, then I'd be happy to help. I've been there.
