You know what my problem is? My problem is I do not feel like I’m working.
A famous quote from Confucius said, “Choose a job you love, and you will never have to work a day in your life”.
I’m a living example of this quote because I seriously do not feel like working at all.
I love my job. Not to the extend that I’m married to my job. I do have life outside my job.
The thing is, I strongly believe our lives are too precious to stuck in a bad job. I don’t see the purpose of working your ass off for one year just to take that one week to enjoy your life.
Life is of course meant to be more than that.
I recently had a conversation with my boss.
Knowing that I never really travel outside Malaysia before, he advised me that I should go out the country more often.
“Save for a year and travel. Do it alternately”, he said.
I thought his advise was reasonable. I had plans before, to travel within this year. Perhaps to Thailand or Philippines because it is affordable to my budget.
But I thought to myself, if I were to travel might as well make it far right?
So I’m going to head out there. Most probably in 2017. And Nepal is on top of the list.
For now, I think I need to find a job. Not my current job of course. This is not consider as ‘working’ for me. Maybe a business at the sideline.
I need that job to pay for my extravagant, faraway travelling.
And I also I need that job because now, I don’t feel like I’m working at all.
