1. You’ve stopped learning. If your days are so predictable that you can sleepwalk through them; if what clients, bosses or colleagues tell you all sounds the same; and if you’re not gaining insight or hearing anything even mildly surprising—that’s strike one.
2. You know what’s next. It’s one thing to think, “I’m bored. I need a change.” But vague musing about a new job won’t help you clarify your career choice. If you’ve researched a specific job, spent time in that setting and even taken a course to prepare, then you’re primed to make your move.
3. You’re ashamed of what you do. Take the party test: When someone asks what you do, are you tempted to embellish? If you’re tired of justifying your job or you dread talking about it, that’s strike three.
