In the past few weeks, work has been pretty hectic. It is not a complaint as such, but rather, a statement. However, lately I’ve been thinking about this vicious cycle. For the cycle to be true, the following two equations should hold true.
Less Work = Less Money
More Work = More Money
When your work is less and not challenging enough, you have more free time. However, since you make less money, you don’t have enough money to spend during that free time you have and make it fun. On the other hand, if your work is full of challenges and there is more and more work everyday, you eventually have less free time. Now, you have the money to spend and have fun, BUT you have to fight for time.
Now which is better? Less work and less money or more work and more money? Obviously the best solution would be as my friend always says, “to earn an honest weeks salary for an honest days work”! Until then, answering this above question has become crucial to my survival. Unfortunately, I am still searching for an answer.
If any of you have got caught to this trap, leave me a comment. I will have the comfort of knowing that I am not the only one out here searching for an answer!
