I often wish I could just be content with what I have, but like many I strive to be the best, and to have the best. I do this in ALMOST all aspects of my life.
One main area that I seem to focus on is my career. I can’t just be happy doing the same thing for years. I have to conquer it, I work hard to make sure my work is perfect. Once I complete that I look to what’s next, what’s the next project I can ask for, what’s the next challenge I can face, what’s the next position I can hold.
I was recently listening to a debate on whether it was better to stay at a job a super long time, or to bounce once it’s run its course. People always seem to gravitate towards the familiar, but when you push yourself great things can come from it! But of course on the other hand… there are many risks.
Maybe once I grow up I’ll settle down and just be happy doing the same thing for years on end, but now, I want a challenge and to be mentally stimulated.
