When is enough, enough for you?

When is it that makes you consider a career move? What sort of threshold would you need to break?

I can name a few. Workload. Working hours. No time off. Being barked at. Work beyond skill. Routineness. Extreme pressure. Location. Low pay. No promotion. Bad management. Family commitments. But also, what is it that holds you back? Job security? Fear for the loss of income? A sense of comfort zone? People? Future promises? Wait and see? No opportunities knocking?

Beleaguering my mind, I have not been able to switch off from work even after reaching home. I suspect it's affecting my sleep, my health and definitely brought about emotional and mental stress.

Wasn't happy with the current state and especially more irked when I got to know what's in store for me in the future. And then with the thought to myself, why would I want to subject to work or in a role that I have totally no interest in and therefore not wanting to invest my time in?

And so, the bottom line is, when is enough, enough for you?
