8 Everyday Signs
You Should Quit Your Job
By Beatriz Tan Saldua
Everyone has bad days at work. But there are times when we just want to say “What am I doing here?!!!”, and assess our place in the universe.
Here are some of those day-to-day struggles that might mean it’s time to go. Just a tip: If you’re just tired, stay. If you’re not fulfilled, then go.
1. You find it hard to get up and go to work.
Waking up on Mondays be like:

Waking up is not a problem, but getting up? That’s a different story. Everything about work makes you want to stay in bed: the commute, the office vibe, the annoying colors of the cubicle, and so on.
2. You don’t care about being late.
Or you just don’t care about anything at all. Company rules, your output, your checklist that has no checked items in it. It’s like you’re screaming “FIRE ME!” deep inside.
3. You go to work to spend time with your friends.
Your only reason to stay: your office barkada, absolutely nothing else. While they keep you happy, they won’t keep you fulfilled. They’ll understand if you decide to go, because they also value your career growth.
4. You can’t wait to have lunch.
Or for any type of break. You come to work for the pantry chikahan and coffee sessions. Just being able to get out of your cubicle, is a damn blessing because it feels like a jail cell to you.
5. Your productivity levels are at an all-time low.
3 hours into the work day, you realize you haven’t done anything work related, and you can’t motivate yourself into doing it.
6. You count down to the weekend.
While everyone loves the weekend, some are lucky enough to find a job they are actually okay with going to 5 days a week. You, on the other hand, just find yourself floating through the work week and go to work just to get to Friday.
7. You hate your boss for no reason.
Or for all the reasons you can possibly find. You hate him, just because.
8. You just wait for pay day.
You convince yourself that you love your job, just enough to stay until the next pay day. Never forget: it’s never too late to find a job that you’re passionate about and also pays well.
