You do not care about financial security or getting any other job, you just want to quit. You just prepare your resignation and this is the worst decision you make. Whenever you make any decision in anger, there are chances that your decision will be surely wrong.  Now, what to do in such a situation? You need to save emotional trauma from clouding your fair judgment. You may feel like going for it like now or never. What do you do?


The best option in this situation is to take a break. Break will surely help you to calm your anger and make your mind cool. Nothing is going to change within the next 24 hours if you do not resign. You can even utilize the time to listen to take opinion from some one who actually cares about you. You decide to think about the pros and cons of your decision. That is the right way.

2. When you have thought about it well enough but still can’t decide.

As it is mentioned above, what do you do when you are not angry but you can’t assess all the variables affecting your decision? In this case, you need to listen to your gut. No need to take any extra time and rethink on the decision. You just listen what your mind says.
