What is your priority, a job you enjoy doing, or the amount of money you get from that job?


We are all told to find our 'niche' in jobs and we will enjoy it to a point where it is no longer a hard task. That sounds great. But a niche is by its very nature rare, so often we have to take whatever is offered as an exchange of the pay-packet. Some people will prefer a job they like, regardless of the size of the wages; others opt for one that gives them the money to "live" fully after hours. What is your priority?

    Hi Abdus Salaam, So, if I understand you correctly, you're saying that you travel midstream! You will accept something less than the 'perfect' job, but that is not bad, so long as you have enough pay, even if it is not top pay. Right or Wrong? Tks.

    Interesting, and thanks for sharing your views. You too will weigh up the pros and cons for each opportunity. Not for you the highjump decision. There is no best way. The beauty of Q&A is the variety of responses. Do our backgrounds affect that?
