1. Classic 3 prong
Looks familiar? Haha. I think things in life are often balanced by these 3 classic words. Of course striking a balance in these 3 would be the best, but more than often 1 of these factors have to be slightly sacrificed.
2. Everyone is different.
Something that works for me might not work for you. For instance, I can live with a man who doesn’t have an extraordinary income but dote on me like hell, but some women need the wealth in their life. Notice how is it similar with your career? I like a job with great flexibility (Quality). Sometimes it also means working beyond regular hours. For some, having a high pay is of utmost importance, and usually it means boring or extremely stressed jobs. For some, they would prefer a stress free job but might indicate a lower pay range.
3. What can you give up?
If we gonna start asking what do we want, we usually end up with unrealistic answers leading to a futile discussions. So an easier way would be to ask yourself what can you give up. Can you give up high wages for a stress free job? Can you give up your hours for your passion? What is the least of your concerns? Money? Flexible working hours? Stress free? Career prospect? Or could it be even nasty boss? Or the need to meet clients? As we slowly build up this list of realistic wants and don’ts, there, you may have finally found a direction to work towards to.
I think by understanding these 3 concepts, we can better understand what we want to achieve in life. It’s a little like the elimination method but hack it, it works! (ps. That's how I found the perfect man for me! Wheeee!)
Now, just a little photo of my Taiwan Trip as an appetizer!
