I am so dead tired


Its been awhile since i procrastinated. Either i have been in such a good mood or maybe i am just too smashed from the hectic life. It is the latter unfortunately.

Many things has been happening with life that suddenly seemed more primary then just eating food. Career for example.

Back in December, i drafted my tender letter, the only thing missing was the date and my signature. I was sick and tired of not achieving enough from my job which ultimately lead to me not getting any promotion. I applied elsewhere.

Then come January, when i went through a series of brainwashing sessions with my team's Partner. I must say hes a great guy, i mean you are someone whos earning a 7 figure salary but yet you waste hours of your saliva convincing me to stay. If i were him, i honestly would make it easy and say hey why dont you leave for something else.

So i stayed. Until the actions of my hatred in December replied with an offer. Someone offered me a promotion and an extra monthly seven hundred bucks a month in a totally different field. The temptation level was at its highest. Here i am with an offer to leave the mess i was in straight away.

Should i be the bastard and just leave? Well i had to see what my boss would offer me, it was the last straw, either he will have been fed up with me procrastinating and shoo me to leave or he ask me to stay. No money for the correct guess, he ask me to stay.

Promise after promise was given and laid out like a pinic's lunch. Temptation now was at a level unknown to me, similar to an orgasm from food. Tommorrow is the deadline to take up that job or reject it outright. What should i do? I ponder. One thing is for sure, I am so dead tired.

Whichever choice you make, just remember, bro, it's a just a decision. It may be a very important one for you right now, but it's not the everything-from-now-counts-on-this-one-decision-I-make...

All the best, mate! :)

joe,
Sometimes, I also hope there won't be any decision to make. It's one difficult "unit" in Job 101. I am too having problem even before I enter the working world. *Sigh*

Whatever decision you make, I wish you all the best. I'm sure you're going to pull through this. Hang on there!

joe-if you are unhappy now, do you think you will be happier later in the same job?

Nothing will change unless you make some changes. It's a little harsh i suppose =)Whatever decision you make, there will be pros and cons...

If you are unhappy .. you should go.. :) you are young.. and nothing venture nothing gain. ;)

Jason said...

Just submit the letter and see how he respond. Mama Bok is right, you're still young, should go out and discover more.

If you're really unhappy now, perhaps it's time to make a change. But still, the decision is yours. No worries, all the best to you!

If there's other opportunity out there. Then I say leave. No point staying and hoping on empty promises. A change will do good where you can have fresh start so that you won't be dreaded to go to work. I've changed my job after I stayed in a company which keep giving empty promises. Now I'm quite happy that I take the opportunity I found. New company and new role. Less stress and more salary.
