Introduction

I want to thank you and congratulate you for downloading the book, “Find Your Life’s Passion: A Step-By-Step Guide On How To Quit Your Job Safely And Go Find What You Were Meant To Do.”

This book contains proven steps and strategies on how to quit your job peacefully, and deciding what you want to do in life next.

A man’s worth is measured by how valuable his job is. His position at his company precedes his value as a human when it comes to people making an assessment of him. Although it sounds limited, to be brutally honest what you work determines how others look at you. And justifiably so, because what else should you judge a man by, if not his work?

 

Some may argue that a man’s words are a better scale to gauge his merit. But even words unless converted to ‘work’ fail to feed a family. All the world renowned authors are evidences of the same. Hence, your work is the index of your worth. As soon as you enter a college, you are asked what aspirations you hold. Even during graduation, after the caps have been thrown and the drinks drunk, parents pop up the question on you out of the blue.

 

If you do have a goal, then you don’t have to shift your gaze and mumble within the earshot about how aimless a person you are. Or if you have already started planning for what you are going to do after graduation, then you make no haste in proudly announcing your scheduled voyages into the cruel world.

 

Once you have settled in your comfortable cubicle at a multinational, you start day-dreaming about the fat pay-checks you will be receiving. You look forward to corporate parties where they offer you the best of drinks. You get allotted a dingy place in the corporate world and you are happy with it.

 

Trouble creeps in when you start wondering if all that is worth your effort and time. Whether you’d be better off working in a different office or switching jobs to a different field altogether. Thoughts of quitting the current job start appearing in bubbles over your head.

 

You start reading the classifieds section of the daily newspapers, keeping an eye out for possible job openings and jump up when one of your current co-employees arrive at your desk asking for a pen. So now is the time when you have to quit your current job and figure out what you want to do in life. That is exactly what we will discuss through this book.

Thanks again for downloading this book, I hope you enjoy it!

Chapter 1: Why Quit a Job?

The corporate world is a cruel world. It leaves not very ample scopes for its subjects to participate in merry making and other jolly activities that a normal person expects to do. It expects you to meet deadlines, sip coffee to ward off your sleep depravedness and work like a machine to vomit results. Sure, it rewards you with money, but what about the time and energy required to spend it? Life is more than just full ATM accounts.

A job may guarantee you security today but you end up missing out on some very precious years of life. What is the point of working late nights when you come home to sleeping kids and are out for office the next morning even before they have woken up? Of course money is of paramount importance but so are the tiny things in life.

It is for such reasons that many people opt out of corporate jobs and decide to either get self employed or find a job that doesn’t infringe their right to lead a normal life. The rate of job-dropping outs has been witnessing an upward graph due to different reasons too. It is wise to quit a job if it doesn’t incite your creative juice or give you sufficient opportunities to perform to the best of your skills.

Reasons to quit a job could be many, each more justified than the next. It’s not always that we are satisfied with what we get. The same applies to employment. At first it may seem like we have landed our dream job but it goes crashing the moment we hit the realization that this is not what we have always wanted.

 

Inconsistency of our skills with the requirements of our job, especially when we have reluctantly landed ourselves into it, is one major reason cited by those choosing to drop out of their current jobs.

 

While it can be rightfully argued that the person in question shouldn’t have chosen to enter into the job in the first place, the picture is not always that simple. There are times and situations that push us to take a decision immediately. In the rush of need and the time-barred choice, we tend to take steps, which we aren’t very sure about. Such moments and their subsequent decisions transport us to situations where we end up regretting our choices.

 

Another reason generally seen in corporate world is the sheer pressure of the cubicle. Not all individuals are capable of churning results within set deadlines. Corporate world is all about doing the right work the quickest, the smartest and the best. Moreover, the very blandness of the work doesn’t leave much scope for the employees to catch up with their lives.

 

While some crumble under the work pressure, some find it hard to make up for lost time and pursue their personal and social interests. In other circumstances, a complex amalgamation of both the factors is enough to push them out of their jobs.

 

Miscellaneous factors such as intra employees’ disputes and health issues may compel individuals to lose interest in their jobs. No two people are alike; people have their views and such views often differ. When a pool of employees work together, stacked up in a dingy office room, having to share the same workload, interactions are bound to happen.

 

Now interactions involve exchanges of opinions on matters ranging from soccer and international issues to political ideologies and gun laws. With the advent of internet and access to social media reports, no side in any argument can be entirely wrong or right. Not all views can be accepted and appreciated.

 

Difference of opinions gives rise to conflicts and cold wars amongst the employees as they are disappointed with their colleagues. At times, this becomes so intense that the work environment becomes increasingly hostile and the frustration reaches its threshold level, so much so that it makes them consider the option of hanging up their boots and calling it a day.

 

The aforementioned factors are usually the role players in decisions of quitting. Other significant causes may include fallouts between the employer and the employee, unsatisfactory pay grade, dull working environment and better opportunities in another employment often related to a better payment, more holidays and side incentives and perks.

 

 

 

 

Chapter 2: How To Go About Quitting a Job?

It is necessary that care and caution be exercised while quitting a workplace. When you quit, you leave behind loose ended strings, which need tying up. You not only quit working, you also stop existing in that particular office where you work. Your previous existence there required you to establish bonds with your co-employees and work together as a team.

 

Your abrupt decision to suddenly cease to work there might have consequences not just vacancy wise but also emotionally and working dynamics wise. While it’s solely your decision to accept or reject a job, it’s equally your job to make sure your decision doesn’t leave things awkward and uncomfortable for you and your former employer and employees.

 

Think ahead

 

Before handing in your resignation letter, think twice about your future plans. Don’t just barge in the door of your boss and tell him you want to quit. Prepare a list of offices you might want to work at after quitting the current one. Inquire in advance about the availability of vacancies there and establish a nexus with them regarding this shift. Let them know of your situation wherein you will be getting out of a current job just so you could enrol with them. Subtly put them under the unspoken obligation to hire you as soon as the process of quitting is finished.

 

Double check

 

Make sure the place you are looking forward to work at has substantial availability and the necessity to hire more people. Get in touch with someone who can be tagged as the inside-person of that workplace and be inquisitive about the hiring policies of the place.

 

Be picky about who gets to know about your resignation

 

It is a commonly witnessed phenomenon of corporate world that certain employees, for the purpose of being in the good book of the employer, indulge in petty tactics like relaying inside information and keeping tabs on under-performing employees. While such arrangements are desirable from the point of view of an employer, the employee is often caught in the cross-hairs of such set-ups. If you are still wondering about resigning and are yet to reach a conclusion, try keeping it to yourself. Under only exceptional circumstances choose to tell it to someone you know wouldn’t rat you out. Situations may arise when you may have to rethink your stance on quitting. You may realize that your current job is the best one for you for the time being and quitting it may turn against you. Make it a principle to not spill the beans until you have arrived at a final decision to quit.

 

Ample homework

 

Always do your homework on the prospective of the job you are planning to shift to and compare it to your current one. Make a list of pros and cons of both- the current job and the one you are planning to join. Such an exercise will clear your head regarding where you stand after such a switch.

Keep the advice-window open

 

Although you ought to be choosy about who knows about your possible resignation, ask for advice from those who have already quit and are happy with their decisions and those people in the workplace whom you consider close acquaintances. Someone might just know more about the consequences and relative essentials of leaving a job and it’d be a waste to not take their help.

Strike the root

 

Quitting the job should be the last resort for any employee. If the reason for doing so derives from things like hostility of employees or an altercation with a fellow worker, then instead of quitting and trying to escape, try sorting the matter out. All it takes to establish a friendship is a casual talk and some exchanged apologies.

 

The silliest of reasons to quit your place of work take birth out of differences amongst employees. If you are in the wrong, do not hesitate to say a simple ‘’I’m sorry for the way I behaved. I should have known better than to upset you.

 

Can we get back to normal terms?’’. It doesn’t take much to set things right if the equation between you and someone else has been strained because of a petty matter. A tense situation if handled maturely can result into ever lasting friendships and warm relationships.

Speak up

 

If the reason of your quitting is a stagnant pay grade or likewise matters, then do not be reluctant to speak up. Being vocal about what you want solves more problems than staying mum on the issue. Your employer may not even be aware that you deserve more than your present payment.

 

Make him realize it either by working smartly enough for him to notice or by straight up speaking with him. Either way, being polite is the mantra. Do not state your claims like a freedom fighter asking for the de-enslavement of his nation. Remember, this is a corporate circle and no person is indispensible. If you want to make something happen, being brief and gentle about it does the trick.

 

You may be an introvert but not being confident about your desires, which in turn must be justified, will get you nowhere. Switching jobs is futile because the problem lies with you and not with the job. Trust your claims and prepare a short list of it. Write a letter to your employer stating them and also the reasons why you believe you deserve them. More often than not, employers like people who know how to get things done in the least strenuous manner possible.

Cut the strings

 

Before deciding to hand in your resignation, start cutting off the loose strings you may have with your current job. Loose strings may include a loan taken through the job, insurance policy that involves your position at your office, some pending office matter that might remain unsolved should you decide to abruptly stop working and the like.

Wait for the month to end

 

Quitting mid-month is a foolish step to take. Having worked for half a month you ought to be entitled to a proportionate amount of the month’s pay. But since you are quitting the job, the employer may feel bitter about it and bring into dispute your claim to half a month’s salary. It’s always better to wait till the current fiscal period is over.

  • Professionalism*

 

Be as professional about the quitting as possible. Some companies have a procedure prescribed in case some employee wants to quit. It may encompass serving of a notice and drafting of a resignation letter. Do not sound, in either the official records or in casual conversations, dissatisfied with the company. Word travels fast.

Give a minimum two weeks’ notice

 

It is considered reasonable to intimate the company about your plans to quit well in advance. Every employee has a special role to play in an office. When one of them decides to leave all of a sudden, it may be a problem for the company to search for a replacement to fill your shoes.

 

Not only would the company appreciate the well timed honesty, but it’d also start looking for prospective alternatives for the position you are leaving behind. It is your duty to finish off your pending work in two weeks time. If they find a substitute for your position, make sure you explain him the job opportunity.

Handle it like a mature person

 

It is the height of nuisance to send an email or making a phone call for the purpose of resigning. You owe your boss the duty to tell them in person why you think quitting is the best option for you and your objectives. The medium of conversation should be live and private. It is important that you keep such conversation as concise and positive as possible. Do not whine about how the company culture is negative or how underpaid or undervalued you are.

 

It will only lead to both the parties parting ways on disappointing terms. This is beneficial for you in the end as you may need recommendations from your current boss for your future jobs. If conversed in the right manner, with all the mannerisms followed and gentleness added, your boss may just refer you to another potential employer who may be in need of someone with your qualifications.

Be prepared to deal with counter-offers

 

Imagine walking into your boss’ cabin to hand in your resignation and your boss after giving it a thought offers to increase your salary by 30%, provided you stay. The indecisiveness in such situations is nerve wracking. If the main reason behind your decision to quit was less payment, then you will very gladly stay back. But if the reasons for your decision were something other than economical, simply tell your bosses so and politely refuse the counter offer while appreciating him for the same.

Walk out gracefully and without any grudges

 

Do not hold grudges against any co-workers and personally bid them farewell. Do meet your boss on the day of your walking out. Just because you were unsatisfied with the job doesn’t mean you need to make a dramatic exit. You can also promise to keep in touch with your old colleagues and boss.

Do not talk ill of your old workplace

 

It reflects poorly on you when you speak ill of your old place of work. Nor does it only show you in a bad light, but it also dampens any chances you might have had of future employments.

 

If you keep all the above aspects in mind before you quit your job, you can very well expect a smooth transition from your current job to your new one. As a backup, keep the exit doors open for you, so in case for whatever reason, if you are unable to find whatever you were looking for in your new job, you have the option to get back in your old one (this applies in extreme cases, but still it is best to keep the option open).

 

Chapter 3: Life After Your Job

So now the big step is already taken. You have quit your job and now look forward to a fresh start. Like discussed earlier, there are different reasons why you may have quit your job, now is the time to realize those different things you wanted to do in life.

 

Quitting your job is an end of one aspect of your life and a new beginning to make another one come true. Remember that while being a part of the rat race, you may have actually stopped living. Now is the time you can get some “me time” for your own self and get a taste of the good living.

 

When I say the good living, it doesn’t amount to spending big money or buying expensive stuff, it rather implies to doing the things that you wanted to do but couldn’t do due to lack of time and because of your commitment towards your job.

 

Here are a few things you can do so that you can justify the ‘break’ you have taken from the corporate world.

 

Do not rush in to another job.

 

This applies specifically for those who quit their jobs since they were bored of working in the corporate set up. You may seem excited to take up a new job now but the faster you zip towards a new job, the sooner you will get bored. You are a human and not a machine. Try to relax, take a break. If your budget permits, take a small vacation; it can be a weekend trip hiking, doesn’t have to be some lavish resort. Finding time for your own self is very important.

Get some “Me Time”

 

You’ve spent a lot of your time shuffling around, doing stuff for everyone around you, keeping up appearances and a brave face for everyone. So now, stop, relax and take a deep breath. Do something you always wanted to do, but never got the time to. Read that novel that has been gathering dust on your shelf since a year now. Listen to that CD your best friend made for you, but you never had the time to listen to it.

 

Even more, grab a small back pack; stuff it with some energy bars and a bottle of water, and head for a walk in the small forest behind your home. Introspect on your life while sitting alone listening to birds chirp and bees buzzing around.

 

Yes, man is a social animal, but all of us need some “me time” to recharge ourselves before we continue with our socializing activities. Do not take anyone with you while you’re relaxing, after all, it is called the “me time” and not the “us time.”

 

Take a small vacation

 

When was the last time you packed your bags and took off towards the unknown? Don’t remember? Well its time you made new memories! With a constant job it is always difficult to get some time off for a vacation. But now that you’ve got some time off from work, don’t waste it.

 

Your vacation doesn’t necessarily have to be a grand trip to some exotic place, a drive to the nearest “weekend” destination for a day or two can be enough to rejuvenate you.

 

If you have a significant other and kids, take them along; after all they need a break too! If you don’t have a partner, do not fret; drag a sibling, friend or even your parents along. The company will be entertaining and your time away from your monotonous routine will be completely worth the trip.

 

Yes, with no job, the money will be a bit tight, but remember, this is for your mental betterment!

 

Spend time with family and friends

 

Work life can get so hectic; you can lose sight of the people important to you a little too easily. Now that you are free, take this opportunity and spend your free time catching up with your family members and friends.

 

Go to your son’s baseball or basketball game, and stay there from the first whistle till the game ends. Or head to your daughter’s ballet performance and encourage her from your seat. Call over your baby sitter and take your significant other for a romantic dinner.

 

Call your sibling just for a long chat to see how they’re doing. Pop over at your parents’ house and spend the day with them. Leave no stone unturned in making your family feel loved; after all when you start your job again they will somehow go back to the back of your mind.

 

Catch up with your friends from high school or college over a couple of drinks; ask them about their lives and just spend an evening reminiscing the old days.

 

When you see your family and friends happy, it has a therapeutic effect on your mind, relaxing you and making you happy. And of course, who doesn’t get happy at the prospect of spending some quality time with their loved ones?

 

Learn a new skill

 

Learning is a continuous process. It doesn’t matter if you are 15 years old or 50 years old, you’re never too old to learn. Take the opportunity to learn something new. This skill may not necessarily be related to your work background, it just needs to be something you will enjoy doing.

 

Always dreamed of learning how to knit? Look up some YouTube videos and watch and learn. Could never figure out how to play golf? Head to the nearest golf-course and take some lessons to perfect that swing!

 

Learning something new in your downtime gives a sense of accomplishment. Idly sitting at home gives you the feeling of being useless and promotes negative feelings in you, but when you learn something new, your feel like you’ve achieved something. This encourages the feeling of happiness in you and de-stresses you and keeps your mind fresh and healthy, driving away all the negativity from your mind.

 

Once you feel refreshed enough and after you have spent quality time with yourself, now is the time to take the next step and of finding a new job. When you take a new job, keep in mind that it offers everything that you seeked in your previous job. This will ensure that you will not lose interest in the job and enjoy your work. Happiness quotient at the workplace is extremely important, because you spend more than 1/3 of your day at the workplace.

Conclusion

Thank you again for downloading this book!

I hope this book was able to help you to understand the process of quitting your job and figuring out life after work.

It’s hard to secure a job; it’s equally hard to decide to quit one. In time when economies are crumbling like bitten hot cookies, searching for a job that satisfies you is a daunting task. The sheer unavailability of jobs makes it mandatory for job seekers to grab with both the hands any job that comes floating their way.

 

Once into it, they realize the inconsistency between what they want and what they are getting. Although it should have been considered a blessing to have found a job in such crunch times, the job itself become too toxic to bear.

 

Often times, the ambition of those working jobs do not match what the jobs offer. It leaves negligible time for their personal development. After all, man isn’t all about how much he earns. His personal skills have as much say in his worth as his job. When it becomes increasingly burdensome to handle the responsibilities at work and find no time for the ‘’polishing of the self’’, the only option left is to quit the cubicle to spend the gained time on oneself.

You do not have to stay tied up to a job for purely economical reasons. Every person has some skill or another. The bag of capabilities wasn’t randomly emptied from above. Each individual has received an array of skills that makes him fit and able for a particular job. Hence, it is desirable that one keeps hunting for the right job until he’s stumbled upon the perfect one.

There will surely be disappointments and failures on the way, but you will be glad you tried. It is not mandatory for you to stick around even when a job is strangling you figuratively. Do not get tempted by the economic remuneration or the consequence of quitting. But it doesn’t imply that one stops thinking practically.

A decision made in haste backfires most of the times. Think ahead and take all the necessary precautions to make the process of quitting as smooth and as hassle-free as possible.

Thank you and good luck!

Preview of ‘How To Get Out Of Debt’

 

Chapter 1: Debt Repayment Strategies

To be rid of debt, you have to pay it off first. While randomly paying off your debts will accomplish the goal of clearing it, there will always be the question of “when” the debts will finally be cleared.

Thus, there should be a strategy or a “system” in place on how the repayments should be made. Let us take a look at some of the strategies often suggested by financial experts.

The Debt “Snowball” Method

The Debt “Snowball” method is considered to be the “baby step” repayment method. Basically, this strategy formulated by finance guru Dave Ramsey suggest that the debtor tackle the smaller debts first – regardless of the interest rate – before moving on to the bigger ones.

#
p<>{color:#000;}. List your debts according to the amount still owed, starting from the smallest to the biggest. Ignore any interest rates.

#
p<>{color:#000;}. Pay the minimum periodic payments on all the debts EXCEPT the smallest debt (the first one on the list).

#
p<>{color:#000;}. Pay as much as you can on the smallest debt. DO NOT pay the minimum payment; instead add more to it. Your goal is to be able to repay the smallest debt in full as soon as possible.

#
p<>{color:#000;}. Once the smallest debt – the first one on the list – has been fully paid, proceed to pay off the second one on the list, the second smallest debt.

Illustrative Example:

You still have the following amounts outstanding, with corresponding interest rates and minimum payment amounts, as of August 31, 2014.

Debt A: $ 14,000; 2%, minimum payment: $ 1,400

Debt B: $ 11,000; 3.5%, minimum payment: $ 1,100

Debt C: $ 24,000; 1.5% minimum payment: $ 2,400

Debt D: $ 4,500; 1.75% minimum payment: $ 450

Debt E: $ 31,000; 2.25% minimum payment: $ 3,100

Clearly, the smallest debt is Debt D, followed by Debt B, Debt A, Debt C, and Debt E.

The main advantage of the Debt Snowball method is that you actually see movement in your debt list. If you try to pay off the larger debt first, it will take a while before you are finally able to cross it off your list, making the wait seemingly long and interminable. If you start with the smaller debt first, you will be able to see the list of debts becoming shorter, encouraging and motivating you to continue repaying your debts little by little.

The trick to the Debt Snowball method is actually sticking to it. It’s a case of starting small, but getting big results.

The Rational Debt Payment Method

The Rational approach is based on the concept that the debts with the highest interest rates must first be paid. This method takes into consideration the effect of interest. The goal is to eliminate first those debts with the higher interest rates in order to reduce the amount spent on interest charges every month. In turn, the amount saved on interest will free up some cash, which could then be applied to the other debts.

Let us apply this method on the example illustrated earlier.

Illustrative Example:

You still have the following amounts outstanding, with corresponding interest rates and minimum payment amounts, as of August 31, 2014.

Debt A: $ 14,000; 2%, minimum payment: $ 1,400

Debt B: $ 11,000; 3.5%, minimum payment: $ 1,100

Debt C: $ 24,000; 1.5% minimum payment: $ 2,400

Debt D: $ 4,500; 1.75% minimum payment: $ 450

Debt E: $ 31,000; 2.25% minimum payment: $ 3,100

When ranked according to the interest rates, the priority debt repayment plan smallest debt is Debt D, followed by Debt B, Debt A, Debt C, and Debt E.

Keep on making those payments. As much as possible, do not skip on any of the regular payments. That is why it is handy to have a repayment schedule drawn up so you can monitor your progress and ensure that you do not miss any.

Debt Consolidation

Upon listing down your debts, chances are, you are overwhelmed with the length of the list. You are most likely shocked at the number of debts that you have to pay off every month. Wouldn’t it be better if you only had one debt to think about, which means you only have to make one payment each month?

You could look into getting a debt consolidation loan.

This type of loan will let you, the debtor, have money to pay off your other debts. Basically, you will be able to consolidate the money that you owe into a single payment.

Debt consolidation also reduces the extra charges that usually come with other debts upon payment. It will also be easier to avoid paying late, thereby avoiding late payment fees. It will also be good for your credit rating, since you would have eliminated several debts and left with only one.

Before taking the plunge and taking out a debt consolidation loan, however, there are a few things you have to check out first.

Look at the interest rate. It may be quite difficult to locate one that comes with a fair interest rate, but with enough research, you should be able to find one. Make sure that the interest rate is not onerous. It should be equal to or lower than the rate that you are paying on your current loans.

Also, debt consolidation may also mean it will take you longer to pay off the debt. While the total amount of the debt is unchanged at the time of consolidation, the term or length of repayment period is bound to change.

Compare the effect of interest over the lengthened term. If you will end up paying more interest over the longer period of the consolidated debt, you may want to rethink taking this route.

Negotiating With Creditors

Sometimes, having a serious talk with lenders will go a long way in managing your debts. Many debtors tend to avoid their creditors, hiding from them and maintaining as little contact as possible.

It is important to maintain a good relationship with creditors. Keep in mind that a certain level of trust must be maintained in a creditor-debtor relationship.

Why should you cultivate a relationship of trust with your creditors?

This will actually be to your advantage. If you believe that you will have to skip some payments, you are likely to be given a reprieve once you call them to request for more time. Of course, this is on the presumption that you make the call before actually missing any of these payments.

If the creditor knows you willingly made the call and you are not avoiding them, they will be more inclined to give you that extra time you are asking for.

Maintaining a good relationship with your creditors will also put you in a better position to ask for other debt restructuring techniques. Credit card companies are known to waive annual fees and other credit card fees if the credit card user asking for it is one who is in good standing. Creditors will also feel more amenable towards reducing interest rates or increasing the term or length of payments if the debtor asking for it is one they can trust.

No matter what debt repayment method you employ, the trick is to stick to it religiously. Depending on the amount of debt you need to pay off, and the debt management plan that you put in place, you should be debt-free in three to five years, maybe even sooner.
