  Top 10 Signs it's REALLY Time to Quit Your Job

I found a couple of articles on some social network about "Top 10 Signs You Should Quit Your Job." The reasons listed were complex and obtuse ("You are pushed into an unappealing position"), and sounded like they were written by HR consultants.

In my view, there's Two Simple Signs: You aren't learning anything and you don't love what you do. Those are key. Life's too short to waste it any other way.

To expand on those, here's my top 10 signs it's time to quit your job. I think these are simple tests and much more practical.

  1. You aren't learning anything.
  2. You don't love what you do.
  3. You spend more than 50% of your time bitching about your job.
  4. You are "Vesting in Peace", and just staying for the money.
  5. You work for bad people.
  6. You want to start your own company.
  7. You get crappy reviews and meager raises every year.
  8. You don't really need to work, but inertia keeps you there.
  9. You clock watch - can't wait for the day to end.
  10. Your job keeps away you from your kids / wife too much.

Any of those sound familiar? Now's a great time to quit.
