Career wise, I have been at a crossroad. Should I or shouldn’t I?
Yesterday I came to a decision: I am not going to apply for the promotion.
Why, you may ask? It’s simple; the role is the antithesis of the life I want.
Yes, there are rewards. The larger salary and some would say prestige being two of the obvious, but it comes at a cost I am simply not interested in paying.
I have first hand experience, having held similar positions in the not so distant past. And, even if I do say so myself, I made a good fist of them.
However, that was before. By climbing another rung in the career ladder, I will be heading in the opposite direction of the life I want.
Standing still is the best way forward.
I slept well last night.
