Why I like firing myself.

I know when to stop working for a company. And when this time comes, I fire myself from work.

I resign, then I move on to new projects. I’ve never been fired by others.

I’ve fired myself several times in the past. Here are some of the symptoms that initiate my decision:

Not arriving to work happy anymore.
Goals reached.
Lack of meaning or purpose.
Money becomes more important than the job.

I could probably think of a few more, but these are the main triggers for me.

Oddly enough, people aren’t one of the reasons why I leave a job. In fact, most people seem to love working with me and I love working with people.

I like challenges. I like to be pushed. I like to push myself. When these likes are met, I get excited.

If you’re in a job where you feel unchallenged, ask for more challenges. If there’s nothing promising in sight, you know what to do.

Fire yourself.

Someone else should do your work. Go and do the work you want to do instead.
