Whether or not to work for a high-paying job with long hours or lower-paying job with shorter hours
Whether or not to work for a high-paying job with long hours or lower-paying job with shorter hours, different people hold different opinions. People who choose high-paying job claim that they can make much more money from their job and therefore gain more respect from other people. When the time comes to me to make a choice between these two, I would prefer the job with shorter hours even its pay is lower. There are several reasons for me to make this decision.
The most obvious reason is of course I can have more time to do what I like to do if I stick with the job with shorter hours. I can spend more time with my family and friends so we can enjoy life together. With the shorter working hours, I will arrive home earlier and then think about how to make a table of delicious food for the dinner. Or make a plan to spend an evening outside. In the morning, I can get up a little bit late so I can have enough rest. I will go jogging after I get up and then take a shower. With a good start of a day, I will feel so energized to start my job. Of course I will finish my job more effectively.
Secondly, with the shorter hour job, I will not feel so stressful because I do my job effectively and efficiently. I don`t waste my energy so my job hours are shortened. With less stress in the job, I can stay healthy. In the long term, I will continue my job and make a lot of improvement in my job. If you choose the long work hour job, how long can you last for the job? I will not last long, and will eventually change the job. To some extent, shorter hours job help me make my career.
Finally, with more free time after hours, I can start my personal business. For sure I will not spend lots of time either. From the very first step of market investigation to open my business account, I will take my time and do it slowly and cautiously. I can do all these just because my job hour is shorter and I have more spare time. I am confident that with every little progress I made, I will become a successful person.
