Are you seriously happy with your job? mirAcles Jul 15th, 10, 03:58 PM #1
Let not talk about 'What Ifs' here. It doesnt make sense to keep talking about what if i had done that, done this. What's over is over.

What I want to discuss here is. 'IF'

Are you seriously happy with your job? or was it because of desperate measures and you are forced to do this job? IF, 'IF' you have 50K, or given a Scholarship, would you take up a course and have a change of job? 'IF' so, what would you study and change your job to?

If now, you have a chance to go back and study another specific subject that allows you to change your job, what would it be? UNI-SIM/ACCA/MDIS etc, lets be realistic here and dont go think about the unreachable jobs.

Definitely!!!
Go overseas and study.
Experience life elsewhere.
Learn new stuff.
Meet new people.

Qns here is, are YOU happy with what you're doing? being in the comfort zone is different from happy with what you're doing. We are all comfortable living in Singapore. But are we happy?
