“If I earn $2K, I will live the life of someone who earns $2K. If that career moves, make sense at the point in time. Take it. Don’t get so hung up about the pay.”
That’s something I realised over the past month.
Plus, personally, other than monetary reward, I think other intangible stuff like appreciation, recognition and being part of a team is more important to me.
There’s only so much that money can do. You can earn alot but if that job makes you unhappy, then no amount of money-enabled-activity can make you happy.
Trust me. I
A lot of people say that they really would like to have a job whereby they get paid for doing nothing. Personally, I’m guilty of that too.
But when you have actually experienced it, you might not like it.

Yes, the occasional lull at work is awesome! But all the time? Eeeps. Not sure about you but I need to…..feel useful (for a lack of better words).
I rather be slogging my life away, feeling tired and feel like I have contributed than just doing minimal stuff. I give my best in everything I do.
Like when I was at IRAS working as a frontline officer. I answer about 100 calls per day while the other temps answered about 10. I tried to slack off, but I felt like crap so I went back to answering as many calls as I can. I felt better and looked forward to going to work.
Just saying. Please let me find something I like soon.
