Debunking the fear of quitting

  1. Quitting is not permanent: It’s always possible to pick up your chosen career path with a different company at a later date.
  2. You will be able to pay the bills: You can get a new stream of income before you quit your job or eliminate most of your expenses temporarily and live off your savings for a short while.
  3. Health insurance and retirement funds won't cease if you quit: Do some research and transfer your 401(k) or similar to another company.
  4. Quitting won't ruin your resume: If you quit to do something interesting, this will often make you more attractive to employers in the long run.
