Top 5 reasons to quit our 9 to 5 job and explore

By Bala | Bala | 24 Feb 2024

For some people, a 9 to 5 job is a very big dependency. I'm currently someone who needs this 9 to 5 job to keep my life safe. But my thoughts are towards going out of the 9 to 5 job so that I can achieve many things. A regular full-time job gives lots of advantages. One big advantage is the financial fulfillment and a good cash flow every month. If we can create the same cash flow from other sources, that is when we can make a wise decision to quit our 9 to 5 job.

In this article, we are going to see the top 5 reasons to quit our 9 to 5 job and explore the other options we have in our life. Sometimes we get the clarity only after we come out of our comfort zone. A 9 to 5 job is a comfort zone that we have and it provides a good source of income and many people don't even want to think anything beyond this. Let's go through the reasons to quit a 9 to 5 job.


Career Growth and Fulfillment

Sometimes if we are used to the 9 to 5 jobs, we might end up doing the same type of work again and again. This will not give us any career growth or fulfillment. Quitting the job and seeking alternatives can be a great solution for this but there is a fear factor that can stop us from doing it. My current situation is something similar to my day job. I'm sitting in a comfort zone. Even though I'm learning a lot and exploring new things, something makes me feel that I should be doing something more toward career growth and fulfillment.

Work and life balance

Many people keep their working hours even beyond 9 to 5 timings. Those people are the sad ones who cannot do much. This is one of the strongest reasons why someone should think about alternatives to a 9 to 5 job. If we can have an alternative earning avenue, we can probably have a good work-life balance and be able to spend a lot of time with the family.

Stress and anxiety

This is one of the biggest problems for people who are working in a stressful environment. For some people, the job nature itself is highly stressful and it is hard to change the work style. There might be a need to change the work nature itself completely. Living with stress and anxiety may not be a healthy thing. For this very reason, we should quit our 9 to 5 job if things are not working out and look for alternatives.


Flexible working

Some people prefer to work flexibly. One of my friends always prefers to work from home all the time. Even if he is switching from one job to another, he tries to pick up a job that demands the employees to work from home. This is one of the flexibility someone can have in their jobs. It is good to quit a 9 to 5 job and look for these flexibilities.


Some people might have a dream to become an entrepreneur in their life. The first important step in this process is to quit their 9 to 5 job and find an alternative source of income. To be more clear it is better to find another good income source and then quit the job. If the idea is to have financial independence very soon, becoming an entrepreneur is an attractive option. At the same time, we must also be very careful because it doesn't work well for everyone.

Even though we have discussed so many points regarding quitting our 9 to 5 job, I would like to indicate that this does not apply to everyone and not everyone can be an entrepreneur. Some people dream and some people do. We have to do a personal analysis and choose a job that is suitable for us. For some people having a 9 to 5 job with a routine might be the comfortable one.
