Last week, the daily post prompt asked..If money were out of the equation, would you still work? Something happened over the last week and I find myself asking, is it really worth hanging on to my current job?
The job is great.. it pays well.. allows me to work from home most of the time. The workload is not very busy. It leaves me time to pursue my hobbies, express my thoughts as my blog. It also allows me time to work on University courses that will help me grow in my career. And most importantly, the flexibility it offers allows me to spend more time with my eight month old son. That was the reason, I took the job in the first place.
All that is fine. But, the absence from a workplace atmosphere leads to being out of the loop at times. Working in an environment, where it is very easy to get lost in the silos of bureaucracy, it sometimes leads me to question.. is it really worth it? After all, these are my prime working years. What I do in the next 10-12 years would set the foundation for the future for me, my wife and my kid.
Should I quit the job and take up an opportunity, that would keep me on my toes? Life would become more hectic, but it will also offer opportunities to grow. As I sit, writing my thoughts.. I looked for a few sources to find more satisfaction.
I am going to take charge on this front and see, if it changes anything. If you have any recommended reads or comments, please let me know.
