Podcast Episode #034

It doesn’t matter where you work; there will always be challenges. Too often, we run from one challenge to a place where the grass looks greener only to discover another challenge. Many times, we would be better served to accept our current challenge instead of running from it because the next move never eradicates the issues automatically.
So what should you consider before leaving a job or accepting another offer? Before you make any career move, I recommend these six steps.

  1. Pray about it.
  2. Talk to your family.
  3. Talk to a close personal friend.
  4. Measure the opportunity.
  5. Measure your giftedness.
  6. Look at the opportunity God has presented to you and make a decision.
