The former chairman of Tata Sons, the legendary Ratan Tata once spoke about the importance of thinking carefully before resigning from a job:
"I think people should think very carefully before resigning from their jobs. People should consider the impact of resigning on their career. Resigning can sometimes make it difficult to find another job in the same field. It's important to weigh the pros and cons of resigning before making a decision. People should make sure they have a plan for what they will do after they resign. Grass always appears greener on other side, most of the time it is a mirage.”
