Should you quit your job without a new job?

What would you do if you are in an iron rice bowl kind of job, but you are unhappy and there is a misfit in terms of job fit?

      To leech off Gabriel's answer, and to give you the best of both worlds, you can also suck it up and continue, while searching for another job / revenue generating business outside. This helps monthly cashflow, and also helps signal your continued attractiveness to potential employers.

      This financial consideration should then be weighed against the mental toll the current job and unhappiness is having on you - is it leading to severe depression / impact on interpersonal relationships; or is the unhappiness still tolerable, even if undesirable?

      You can suck it up and continue, save more, invest more, retire early.

      Or you can start searching for another job.

      If you want to quit without a job, make sure your savings can last long enough.

    What is an alternative? Is there any other job/industry that you would rather be doing? If yes, you might want to consider pursuing your career in that industry instead.

    If not, you can think about what you would rather do. OR, like what the others have said, just work and invest and retire early.
