Don’t waste time. In life, in business, in career, in all you do, wasting time is a significant deficiency for most and it should be taken more seriously as time can’t be bought back, it can’t be recouped.
If you know that a particular place is no longer the right fit for you, it is critical not to continue wasting more time hoping it will change. If it hasn’t changed over the past several years, what gives you the confidence that this year will be the year it does? If there’s new leadership, or new priorities that could bring some hope, but if nothing has changed, it is time to move on. You have one life, ask yourself is this how you want to spend it?
Complaining is an ugly attribute and generally gets you nowhere. If you can do something to enact change please do, otherwise, gracefully and professionally thank them for their time and move on to a place where you will be a part of something larger than yourself; a place where you will be valued and respected and a place where your contributions will be noticeable and recognized.
One life, tick-tock, tick-tock…
