I have big plans this year but those plans involve a steady income. And right now, I’m just not thinking straight about the steady income.
I am terribly unhappy at work and don’t want to stay there. But I know that if I stay there, I’ll have that steady income I need to make some dreams come true.
On the other hand, I know there’s an opportunity that could be quite fruitful if I choose to make that leap. But the uncertainty (and my age) are holding me back. At my age, do I want to start a new career? Would I rather go with a job I have that may not be the best, or do I go back to one that’s more familiar? Try for the new one? What to do!!
All my adult life, I have jumped from one job to another without a care in the world. It was easy to find a job for me. I was never without one for longer than two weeks. But now that youthful attitude has gone and left with me with doubts of what to do. I’m also pretty tired and quite fatigued still from being sick, which isn’t helping. Is this the right time to making such a decision? Should I wait until I feel a bit better? So many thoughts going through my mind, and not one is very productive.
Tomorrow is my last day of 4 in a row at work. I have a few days off and then I start a rather erratic schedule. I’m going to take some time this week to sit down, weigh out the pros and cons, and really think about how I’m going to do this. I know I will – I just need to think it through, and write some notes about my decision.
How do you tackle a difficult decision? Jump head first in and go with itt? Or do you take methodical steps to determine the best outcome for yourself?
I hate adulting.
