Some things to think about while contemplating a change of careers.
Jack Welch weighs in on whether to stay or go.
"Does the prospect of going in each day excite you or fill you with dread? Does the work feel interesting and meaningful or are you just going through motions to pull a paycheck? Are you still learning and growing?
Second, do you enjoy spending time with your co-workers or do they generally bug the living daylights out of you?
Third, does your company help you fulfill your personal mission?
Fourth and finally, can you picture yourself at your company in a year?"
No matter where you work, at some point you will have to endure difficult times, and even a deadly dull assignment, to survive a crisis or move up. But it makes little sense to stay and stay at a company because of inertia. Unlock your door and get out.
Bloglines sent me to this blog called All Things Workplace that considers the same topic.
