Day 6: Difficult Decision

Just one year ago I was so happy to get a job at last after several months of job hunting. And now today I had gone for an interview (after receiving a call without even applying) at another Engineering college very far from our residence just for the heck of it, while being already employed.

After a demo and few questions, the panel readily agreed to the salary asked by me (which of course made me feel I should have asked for more) and were very insistent on me joining as soon as possible.

SIGH!! Wish I could but given the distance and the exhausting commute that it will be, I am happy with my present workplace though the salary is unsatisfactory. D drops me to my work place daily or even if I go by my two wheeler it takes 20 minutes hardly. Better infrastructure, better employee facilities etc are a few among other pros. Also I am not much of a job hopping person. Inspite of all the politics and bad colleagues I stuck at my first work place for 6.5 years only to leave for Bangalore after marriage. That change was really needed and was refreshing. As for the present workplace it has been only one year…. I have just started🙂

Even if we shift to some area in the middle between this new work place and D’s office, rent will get high. And I have to start taking the BMTC bus to that place! Horrors of horror! I dread taking the bus because of my severe motion sickness problem and congestion and crowd in buses.

So the decision to refuse such a good offer is so hard. One side money another side comfort. But I know in my heart my need for comfort and peace is much more than my ambition. Should it be other way round? I don’t know!!! If I had been very hard working, god knows what heights would I have attained by now.

Sigh!!!

  1. What’s the point of earning more money, when you have to go through a daily grill of difficult travel (and time waste) for it? The cost of wasted time (and efforts) is much higher than we estimate.

  2. Hmmm Money Vs Convenience!!! As you are already clear as to what u want I don’t think it was a difficult decision😀
