In the pursuit of our goals, the question often arises whether we should keep going or take a different path.

This week’s challenge tackles the art of knowing when to stop and when to go for it.
We explore strategies to make your work more enjoyable and fulfilling.

This Weeks Challenge

Recognise the signs that it is time to leave your job.

Two Empowering Questions


What specific aspects of your current work or goals align – or not – with your core values, principles, and long-term aspirations? Can you leverage this alignment to enhance your overall satisfaction and fulfillment in your professional journey?


Looking at your current situation, what areas or skills do you think are contributing to your lack of motivation or enthusiasm?

Can you overcome these challenges and rediscover the joy of working, or is it time to let it go?

Three Practical Steps


Assess the trade-offs and benefits of continuing your current job.

Consider whether quitting certain aspects will hinder or enhance your personal growth.

Evaluate alternative paths that align better with your goals and determine the skills you will gain or miss out on by quitting or persevering.


Write what you need. What would an environment that encourages innovation, problem-solving and personal growth look like?


Whether you are staying or leaving your current situation, set meaningful goals that align with your values and long-term aspirations.

Break these goals down into actionable steps, focusing on making daily progress and celebrating minor victories along the way.
