Quitting your job is one of the most stressful decisions you can make. We spend forty hours (okay, probably more) at our jobs every week, and many of us define ourselves by our careers. When you meet someone new, what's the first question that comes up? "What do you do?" In addition to the personal cost, there's the financial cost. What if you don't have something else lined up? Can you afford to take a pay cut?

It is a hard thing to remember, but life is far too short to spend time doing work that you don't enjoy. If you start to feel dissatisfied at work, and it doesn't blow over in a few days, it usually just eats at you and eats at you until you can't take it anymore. Very quickly, you find yourself struggling to get out of bed in the morning and suffering through the nagging distress of living a life you don't enjoy. The fact of the matter is that you rarely hear of someone quitting their job too soon, but the cubicles of America are packed with people who wish they had left that dead-end job earlier. For those of you who are on the fence about whether or not to pull the trigger on that letter of resignation, we're here to help. Here are 10 Signs It's Time to Quit Your Job.
