Reminder for myself

Will you jump from a job with higher pay to a job with lower pay?
Will you jump from a job with higher prospect of career advancement to a job with lower prospect of career advancement?
Its a struggle between $, career prospects and life.

I will if current job cause me to drag feet to work but the future job has potential to be better.  It is a risk because you never know what lies ahead. The next job might be worse! (I experienced this before. Next job is worse.) But life is a gamble isn't it? If you don't try, you will never know. Go read "Who moved my cheese?".

You need to spend at least 2/3 of your waking hour for 5 work days a week, much more waking hour then you can spend with your loves one during weekdays, thus it is better to be in a job which you like. It may be of lower pay but you will be happy. You only live once and youth once only.

$$$ can be earned. Don't be overly obsess with $ and just aim to save lots of $, invest and use it for retirement.

If you die before you can retire; if you are unhappy over work everyday, what is there to say about retirement in future? You cannot even LIVE YOUR PRESENT.

Won't it be great if you can earn some $, save some $, while enjoying your present life?
Isn't it better to sacrifice some pay for a better life during your working hour?

If you have a choice in life, do you prefer your youth with no $$ or your $$ without youth?
If you have a choice in life, do you prefer a meaningful current life with no $$ or lots of $$ with no life at the present moment?
