A.k.a. Was any of your jobs you had, your passion?
Of all the office jobs I could imagine, I did have jobs which I consider as the most ideal office jobs.
The topics, Training and Electrical Safety, are definitely my “work passions”.
But if money was no issue, would I give up these “passions”?
The 2.5 hours daily commute between work and home feels like a huge waste of time and sleep.
Company rules decide in which time frame I should be most effective, the 9 to 5 rule.
They don’t allow me a one hour nap after lunch which could potentially increase better outcome.
They don’t allow me to compensate my hours when I work on brilliant ideas in the evening because I “can’t prove” that I actually worked on it then.
They NEED to physically see me in the office, because that’s obviously “prove”.
Oh mr./mrs. Manager, the things you don’t know.
I haven’t learned to be social or how to be better at communicating.
If only, it has made me feel more shy and think the worst of people.
Did I honestly get smarter because of my job?
Unfortunately, 70% of the job is administration and politics, so not really no.
But, if my weeks wouldn’t be filled with the regular 40 work hours, what else would I be doing?
Let’s say it would take me a couple of years years to see entire world, buy all the clothes, see all the movies, read all the books and eventually get really bored of all of that.
I wouldn’t be able to think of any topics to blog about.
Because let’s face it, pretty much most of posts are me complaining about daily frustrations and how to handle them.
Other than the fact that I will never reach this state of richness, maybe the 9 to 5 has some advantages.
Or maybe I’m just stating this because it seems hard to go work after 4 days off and gaining control over my own life. 😉
