Job Hunting Zen Thought of the Week – July 24, 2015

Here is your Job Hunting Zen Thought of the Week!

We are all taught at an early age to be ambitious and to please others. This serves us well in growing ourselves and building our careers.

Sometimes, too much is too much, and an obstacle may simply be too large to overcome.

For example, you've been approached about a job that sounds perfect for you. The job itself is great, and the salary is out of this world.

But the commute would involve traveling 90 minutes each way, for a total of three hours a day.

You're not afraid of hard work, or commuting to a job.

However, you will find the stress in your life - and time away from your family - increased substantially.

We don't always have the luxury of turning down a job opportunity. But make sure to evaluate all the factors that matter to you in your quality of life.
