Do you want to quit your job and follow your dream? I know I do! I even had dreams about it. I’ve imagined the event a million times in my mind.
I Wanted to Travel the World…
The first thing I wanted to after quitting my job was travel the world. I wanted to go to Europe, South America, Thailand, and India. I had felt this impulse for the last couple years. It kept on getting stronger and stronger every year.
But I didn’t Quit My Job…
I didn’t do it. I thought about my family and taking care of my expenses. I thought about doing it at the perfect time. I don’t know when that perfect time will come, but I have gotten real close to it many times.
I Did My Research
I Googled lots of articles online and read blogs about it. Some were of the opinion to wait for the perfect, others said to just quit. I’m not sure what the right decision is, but I did realize that if I decide to quit my job, I should weigh all my options.
Consider Financial and Emotional Implications
I would definitely look at my savings in my bank account and determine how long I could go without working. I would minimize any costs as much as possible. I could get some help from my parents or move home.
I would also understand my emotional reasons for not working. Most importantly, I would figure out what I would do with the time off.
