The numbers in your bank account mean little.

If you hate your job, you cannot afford to stay one more day.

Over half of college graduates accept jobs that aren’t in their preferred industries (Bureau of Labor Statistics). People are bored, tired, and return home cranky and angry. Distraction comes in the form of stimuli — alcohol, drugs, buying things, selling things, gambling, eating, checking out in front of a screen.

You’ve invested too much in yourself — your education and training — to remain in a stifling workplace, performing tasks that are redundant. You are too valuable. Each second of your life is a precious moment you can’t get back. A bus could take you out tomorrow.

As difficult as it might seem to find a new gig, your life depends on it.

Your checkbook isn’t the only thing you should worry about. The bigger balance is your soul.
