When considering a jump, money is usually where most people start. A pay raise can be a lucrative reason to make the jump, but Dustin R. Granger, CFP® says it’s a good idea to look at the whole picture, not just the additional cash you might earn. You might earn more, but does the jump mean your retirement planning or pension will take a hit? Is the pay better, but you will be working weekends and holidays? You will have to do your own research and then decide whether or not to make the jump!
Robert Greene wrote, “A lower-paying position that offers more room to make decisions and carve out little empires is infinitely preferable to something that pays well but constricts your movements.” When considering the jump, consider whether or not it provides more flexibility and freedom. If you can make better money and have more opportunities to grow, you might as well jump…If the opposite is true, that the jump would remove that flexibility, you might consider exactly what you would be losing, and weigh that along with these other tips to help you make a decision.

Did you know that if you have an hour commute to work every day, you will waste 16 whole days a year driving to work?! You want to make the jump, but will it cost you extra time? Valuable time that could be spent doing something important? This reason is a double-edged sword…not jumping could mean you are wasting a lot of time. Making the jump might mean your commute becomes much shorter. Mr. Money Mustache, a financial blogger thinks you should live within biking distance of where you live in order to be worth it!
We have talked in previous episodes about having a personal mission statement and vision. Setting aside time to focus on these things is a critical element of the life planning process. If you are considering a jump, ask yourself “does this jump afford me opportunities for personal development?” Your best life is the one where you feel fulfilled and can make a difference in the lives of the people around you. Will this jump push you out of your comfort zone? If so, jump!
Easy question: Would this jump be more fun than your current situation? If so, maybe you should leave the grind and make the jump! Fun is not the only factor, of course, but it can be a telltale one! Maybe the jump means creating your own company, taking a few more long weekends, or finding a way to delegate tasks. Your joy meter is a great way to measure areas of your life that might be dragging you down. If it makes sense, don’t always be afraid to take the jump!
