Sports Lessons: Knowing when it's time to quit your job

2 Point Lead: Rules for Sports Fans


They say sports teach us life lessons, even at a young age. It makes a lot of sense when we think back to our old baseball or football days when we have to exercise patience, perseverance, hard work and all that good stuff.

But if you really pay attention, sports offer us career advice every single day. Today's lesson? When you know it's time to quit your job.

1. When you don't feel safe in your office. For instance, Mick Fanning was attacked by a f!@#$%^ shark weeks ago -- and it happened again! And for the record, this isn't a joke. Fanning actually had to escape another shark. He should just quit while he's ahead and become an accountant or something.

2. When you're criticized constantly no matter how good a job you do. Just like Eli Manning winning two Super Bowls, but being known as everybody's favorite punching bag.

3. When the previous guy in your position was a rock star and you have zero chance of winning over the office. Didi Gregorious syndrome.

4. When the first time you're appreciated is when you start crying at work. We love you, Wilmer!

5. When you get passed up on a promotion opportunity -- or even worse, demoted. Poor Drew Storen. The dude does a solid job holding down the closer's role in Washington -- only to take a back seat when the Nats trade for Jonathan Papelbon as a luxury.

aol

6. When you're so ambivalent toward your co-workers that you don't even speak to them on their first days. Apparently Roy Hibbert, Lou Williams and Brandon Bass hadn't heard from Kobe Bryant on their first official day as members of the Los Angeles Lakers. It was very awkward when reporters asked if Kobe had reached out. Whether you're Kobe or the three newbies in this situation, it's time to go.

7. You hate the new strategy and direction of the company, so you resort to releasing anger by posting immature emojis. DeMarcus Cousins knows all about this -- and probably went to HR to complain.

aol

8. When amputating your finger is something that actually gets you back to work faster. Jason Pierre-Paul discussed his options with his medical team and family members, according to a source, and decided that the amputation was the best decision for his health and his career going forward.

aol

9. When you take an $11 million pay cut and you're lauded as being the smartest guy around. David West thought playing for the Pacers was so bad, he said 'no, thanks' to $12.6 million for next season to sign with the winning Spurs for $1.5 million.

aol

10. When you take a job with a different company and your old boss and co-workers come to your house and hold you hostage. That just confirms they're crazy. That's right, Blake Griffin and the Clippers crew -- you people are crazy.

Although, if your co-workers will fight to the death in your defense on Twitter, you might reconsider leaving. That's what every office department should be like. Nevermind, Clippers. You're awesome and embody #SquadGoals.
