I didn’t quit YOU!

I compete with me.

If I am too comfortable, it means I’ve achieved stagnation and it’s time to reinvent myself. Changing the environment is one way of doing it.

YOU build your environment, not the other way around.

And you know what? It’s not easy! I don’t want easy. Every time I changed job, I faced challenges from building a new network to learning a new domain and sometimes even a new language. But it is these small and big challenges that build the achievements and learnings that lead to joy. I truely believe in this:

What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger.

The key to success is to be flexible and adapt to new conditions. You see in the nature:

The most adaptable and flexible specie survives.

Not everyone who quits is a hero. Some actually make the company a better workplace for others. However, every company has a few acting canary in the coal mine. When those people leave, you need to be worried because their departure sends a signal to some of the key employees and they will leave too. What remains is either people who can’t find a better job or are too comfortable to challenge themselves or politically correct lingo: “loyal employees”. 😅 Regardless, the result is a culture of stagnation and mediocracy which limits the company growth. Try to replace the canaries ASAP.

Don’t run from fire but run towards flowers.

His point is that when someone is running away from something, they may make the wrong decisions. It is best to keep calm, think about your priorities and find a better opportunity.

  • Love what you got
