Have u ever been in a situation where you are forced to make a decision to do something u don’t want to but have to?
I’m recently unemployed (7 months ago) and been trying to become self sufficient as an estate agent. Things have been slow and the market really tough, to the point where I started considering (begrudgingly) working 1/2 day…
Suddenly a week ago an opportunity arose in the industry I specialised in to work half day….
I went 4 the interview and was immediately offerred the post.
Great right??? You would think so, yet my gut and heart were torn into several directions….
Part of me did not want to give up my new found independance, my new found freedom, just so that I could yet again be stressed, pressurised and for what? A mere token break even salary?
The common sense side of me was saying what if you don’t get another offer like this before your money runs out? Who says I’m going to have a sale soon? When will the market turn? Yes the moneys not great but its reasonably ok…..
So instead I put the offer to the test and I told them if they want my expertise it comes @ a minimum salary of X……
I told myself that if they valued my expertise they would accept and if not it would b a sign that they would just have abused me in any event…..
So now here I sit having still heard nothing and I wonder to myself….has indecision cost me an opportunity or saved me in the long run???
What do you think?
