Would you accept a job for 10k less a year if you knew the work would make you happier?
This is the sort of question that artists answer with a resounding YES!
I wish I coudl say yes but, I could not afford that.
Why limit yourself to just two choices- job with 10k more but not as rewarding versus job with 10k less that makes you happier?
I want a job that makes me happier AND pays me 10k more!
I would take a job earning 10k a year! gladly this is my last semester
It really depends on what you want out of life. If material things are important then the scenario would probably not be a good move. If you are searching for some kind of fulfillment you may indeed be happier albeit a little poorer. Three years ago I took a position that paid me 40K less per year than I was making at the time. It was a difficult choice and to be honest there were many sleepless nights and doubts but in the end it was, for me, the right choice.
I do, sometimes, miss the money but not to the point where I would ever consider going back.
Yes I would. Money isn't everything, and for 10K a year, I am sure I will have time to devote to other things in life.
If I could afford to then yes. At the moment I simply couldn't afford to do that but hopefully in a couple of years or so when I'm making more money from writing...
I'd like to say yes I would, as I do think happiness is more important than money, but in todays world 10k is not enough for a family to survive on. I'd like to earn enough so as not to worry about the basic every day things. Enough for food to eat, enough to keep a roof over our head, enough to pay the bills and enough to pay for medical insurance. So I guess the answer would be no....Unless my other half could support us and was happy with my decision too .
I defiantly took a huge pay cut to operate my own company. I enjoy what I do. I love what I do. The funny thing is I have less stress about whether I am going to get laid off. I get paid now for the hard work I put in.
Totally- and I would make sure that my hobby finds that extra 10k somewhere. It would allow me to get rid ofsome of this junk I have laying around. More garage sales, more ebay sales, I would find that extra 10k a year somewhere, that's less then 1k a year, it can be done
