I like to be comfortable.
I think just about everyone does. The problem arises when I’m miserable but comfortable. I’m on my way there. My job situation needs to change quickly. I’m not challenged, there is no room for growth or development, I don’t use my brain. It’s terrible. While I joke about not wanting to get up in the morning, I actually want to work. I want one of those days where I worked really hard and I’m proud of my accomplishments at work. I want to leave work one day and say, ‘I really put in work on blah blah blah. Whew!’ I can’t do that where I am. I physically can’t. And that bothers me.
But I’ve been comfortable for so long now that starting over with a new company is a bit overwhelming. I’ve been with my current employer for 4 years. I know the ins and outs. I know what to expect and how things will be delivered. I’m comfortable. But I’ve got to start over and find something else. And in this job market, its gonna be difficult to do. But I have to.
So on top of moving across the country twice, having a roommate for the first time, and making less money than I did after undergrad, I’m about to step out of my comfort zone…again.
Here goes everything!
