I don't think I really want to change my job at this moment, mainly the bonus and the increment ahead in few months. And I want to do some extra projects with outside people, to build a relationship to start my own company at the end of next year
For me (at 40) it will not happen this decade but maybe in 10 to 15 years provided the US government does not make make crazy increases in the tax I will have to pay to withdraw my from my retirement accounts to avoid the expected massive social security shortfall.
In late May I just left Portugal to embrace a new challenge in Switzerland.
It's been great on it's own but watching the news it was clearly the best decision I haver made.
Was not an easy one tho. I had to leave behind everything I ever knew for 35 years as being my habitat, my familly, my son, my friends, my "secure", technologically challenging and well payed (for the standards) job but yet again, it worths all the way.
Leaving your conffort zone is hard, and it's really easy to find an convincing excuse not to but if you're not happy with what you have, quit complaining and work your way out as soon as possible.
And what about if the firm where you are is not challenging you, the job you have to do is boring, you are stuck in a position for the rests...
It is not so nice to see someone that has changed firm 4 or 5 times in 3 years, I agree with that. But if you are young and started to work 3 or 4 changes in 10 years is not bad. You are developing your skills and learning different methodes from different places.
If you are so lucky that you have the job of your dreams at the first moment... perfect. But if not... to change is the only thing you have.
If something has a solution... Why do we have to worry about?. If it has no solution... For what reason do we have to worry about?
Help me to understand what I'm saying, and I'll explain it better to you
Rating helpfull answers is nice, but saying thanks can be even nicer.
