When It's Time To Go

Sometimes it's time to look for a new job. Even if you don't want to face it, your subconscious may be trying to send you a message right now.

How to listen to your subconscious? It's actually very easy. Start writing a "weekly top ten favorite songs"-list. If some or all of the songs below appear on your list more and more often, then it's time to look for a new challenge:
  1. Linkin Park - In The End (it doesn't really matter)
  2. Ozzy - Crazy Train (I'm going off the rails on a crazy train)
  3. Queen - I'm Going Slightly Mad (it finally happened, I'm slightly mad)
  4. Johnny Cash - I Got Stripes (stripes around my shoulders, chains around my feet)
  5. Garbage - Only Happy When It Rains (You’ll get the message by the time I’m through [= resignation letter?])
Don't worry if Green Day's "Holiday" is on your list. A (definitely not) representative survey showed that this is an all-time favorite song with the working population aged 25-45.

And if "I Believe In Miracles" by the Ramones is on your list, at least 2 of the following things apply to you:
  • you're old
  • there's still hope for you
  • you're beyond hope
Finally, if the only song you're listening to is Offspring's "Why Don't You Get A Job", then it's definitely time to do something, although it could either mean finding a new job or getting rid of your darling...
