It’s Monday morning and you are dreading going into work.  As you are getting ready, you’re wondering if it’s just the thought of getting up early and having to go to any job that is making you cranky or is it this particular job that’s making it so difficult to get up?

Sure there are things about the job that you don’t like, but aren’t all jobs like that?  How do you know whether it’s your particular job that’s the problem?  In other words, how do you know when it’s time to leave?  Here are five signs that tell you it may be time:

You’re bored.  You’ve lost your passion and your skills aren’t being utilized.

You’re struggling getting out of bed.  The alarm goes off and you have no motivation to get up.

You hate entering the office.  The same routine is getting to you.  Same people, same work areas, same smells.  Same everything.

You’re spending your day surfing the net looking for a new job.  Rather than spending your day doing the work at hand, you find yourself not being able to concentrate on anything else other than what else is out there.

Your work performance is suffering.  You know you aren’t doing your best work and your boss has also noticed it, or they will soon.

If you are noticing most of these things are happening to you on a regular basis, it’s probably time for you to get out of where you are and change jobs.  Just be smart about it and do your research.  You don’t want to leave one bad situation for another.  Make sure you take your time and find a new job that you feel excited about and one that suits your skills set well.
