We work to live, at least this is what I do. I refuse to allow work to hinder me from living my life, so once it starts doing just that, I throw it out of the window; like what Miss Trunchbull does to her students in the 90s movie, Matilda.
Your work should bring forth a feeling of accomplishment, not a life that is full of stress.
To avoid throwing away work, those people who are looking for a job should know what they want. Meanwhile, employers should stick to the deal and avoid trapping their employees into something that is not stipulated in their contracts.
Choosing a job is like cooking. You don’t prepare something that you do not plan to eat, right? When I say I want to eat mixed vegetables sauteed in extra virgin olive oil, trust that I will finish the dish.
When I told my boss I quit, while she was explaining the week’s tasks, I meant it.
After submitting my formal resignation letter, I erased everything related to my previous job so that I can start my goal for the year: to organize my financial portfolio.
I used to associate my newfound passion with older people, such as those in their 50s and 60s; until I realized that most of the people I know, who are financially okay, are in their early 20s, I realized they must be doing the right thing.
So, here I am finally doing the right thing, too.
