Most people crave security. As a matter of fact, I’m a huge fan of security, myself. I can’t seem to picture myself functioning without a backup plan running in the back of my mind. I wouldn’t want to go back home someday and realize that I don’t have enough finances to back me up. Or be paranoid about being out of  a job for too long.

Everyone wants to be financially stable and feel secure at all times.

Only a few people have the ability to drop what they are doing and start from scratch. I wish I could believe in the factor, “There’s no reward without risk.” – Barry Farber

Since our mindsets vary, our goals in life differ too.

There are people who prefer living on the edge! People who like the thrill and adrenaline of the situation. And can make sudden plans. Then there are others who think they can make it through as long as they love what they do.

The problem begins when we don’t know where to draw a line!

Although you aren’t certain about what you can do post leaving the current job. You must know that there is always scope for you to find yourself.  And completely sure before making such a decision.

I understand that you may be in a hurry to leave your job, but a backup plan is a must.

You also need to place focus on why leaving your job is now your main agenda? And what next?

If you think you may be ready to cope up with the consequences, then go ahead! Leave your job without a backup plan.

But before you plan on making a decision of this sort, you may want to focus on other factors too. They may influence you to stay back at your job, and entitle you to patience.

Here are a few things you can ponder upon while planning to leave your job.

Why do I think this is a must?

Here’s why-

1. You get time to soak up all the information and experience when you take time

When you take the time to re-think your decision about leaving your job, you get time to brush your skills up.

Your agenda should always be to acquire all the information you can about your work. You can then leave knowing that you know enough about your current job. You will bear better perspective for your next job, in mind.

“Remember, today is the tomorrow you worried about yesterday.” – Dale Carnegie


2. It is better if you can ask yourself, what do you do after leaving your job?

People around will always have questions lined up ahead of you. See that you can clear your own doubts first. What other’s ask or expect of you is secondary.

Know that, it is fine to leave your job without a backup plan. But you will have to think of other strategies to keep you going. As long as you can ask yourself, ‘what next?’ And have  a suitable justification for your decision, you’re good to go.


3. Find out why you want to implement this sudden change? What do you think your ‘Stressor’ is?

There are various reasons for one to quit their jobs.

The major aspect of you leaving your job without a backup plan is the financial crunch. Most people face it at one time or another.

Put yourself in those shoes, see if you will be able to ‘handle it all that well.’

If you think you can manage your expenses, you can think of leaving your company and live off your saving for a bit! You will then have one less thing to stress about.

It will also help you realize what your priorities are, and where you stand.

4. Don’t be a rage quitter –

Your priorities must be in the right order. Being an impulsive quitter won’t help you in the long run. It is better if you give your current job sometime. Being impulsive doesn’t always work in one’s favour.

Most of us plan on leaving a place, to be at a better job. And when you leave without a backup plan, you are reducing the chances for you to improvise.

Nothing good comes out of being impatient.


5. But if you’ve made up your mind, let no one talk you out of it but yourself!

If you’re clear in your head that you want to quit your job. No amount of counselling will be of any help. Yes, it will help you weigh the gains against your prospective losses. But only you can help yourself take the next step. No point sticking to one job  just because you are used to it.

As long as you’re clear in your head, know that the break may just help you work on yourself. Your life can go by as smoothly as you want!

Make sure you do enough research while taking time off work. It’s always an add-on when you feel that you are mentally prepared to make a decision.

It’s nice that you want to try doing something new.

When you are enthusiastic to start fresh, don’t let confusion drive you.

How you can get hired after taking time off from your work

Never let your choices define you.

Your career is what you choose, don’t let it define who you are.  The odds of you having a lot of free time in hand, are more without a backup plan.

When you plan on leaving in a hurry, understand that you may be out work for a bit. Utilize this time well.

Most people who leave their job all of sudden, find it difficult to sit ideal. You can think of ways to go about using your leisure time in advance, it will help you plan your day better.

Change is hard but your chance of improving are way more when you are open to it.
