Ok, I have a little dilema that I want to get some T-man perspective on…
I’ve just been offered a new job, in the same field I’m in now but with a significant salary increase. Sounds like a great gig right? Well, there’s one problem, it’s going to be a hike to get there everyday. The job will take me about 60 miles from home for the first 6 months, if not longer.
So driving there everyday is going to definitely impact my entire life. I’ve got a girlfriend, a dog, and all my friends are local. So, I’ve built a lot of my life where I’m at now. I took the position I’m in now mainly because of it’s location. I really don’t want a decision like this to destroy my relationship with my girl either, she’s really great, and I’ll probably end up marrying her.
I know, some of you may be thinking, “sounds like a no brainer”. But I’ve done this sort of thing before and it really takes away from everything in your personal life.
So, I am here asking “the guys” for some advise. I’m sure many of you may have had a similar situation and I’d like to know how you delt with it. This could be the oportunity I’ve been working so hard to find, but is it worth the risks?
