The night I publicly announced the news of my resignation a small part of me was expecting a Hollywood ending. Stomach-churning, I went to bed knowing there would be no sleep and foolishly fantasized about the emails that would be waiting for me the next morning:

Dear Pubali: See attached offer letter. We have wanted you for years.

This is the second in an essay series about making great, big, career leaps of faith without both fear and a safety net. In the first, I told personal stories of career pivots while sharing that people should not let fear limit their potential. I encouraged elective unemployment if the outcome meant living a better, richer, and fulfilled life.

Don't let fear stop you from making meaningful career shifts.

Last week, I shared news of my voluntary resignation from my job. On the heels of this announcement, I was shocked by the number of people who came forward to express their utter astonishment at my decision to exit without something already lined up and went on to share their own stories of wanting a career change but being too afraid to do it.

Q:  I’ve been unhappy at work for some time now. At home, I find myself rehashing conversations that upset me that day or preparing for counter arguments  that may come up next.  I even fantasize about what I would say -if I could- in a resignation speech. I know that realistically I can’t quit right now but I’m having a hard time coping from day to day.  What can I do while I’m stuck?

Despite a century of speculation by managers and scholars, we know very little about whether certain cues or signs exhibited by employees can predict whether they're about to quit.
