I tried to find the answer or inspiration form books when I get confused.
After changing fields and jobs, I have few things to estimate if I should stay,
- The remaining energy level when you are off duty
It’s the most direct indication. If you are not in the right circle, the energy will run out quickly. I am not saying the workplace is a playground, but at least it can’t be too negative all the time.
- Do you have Monday Blue?
Some people prefer work alone, some prefer teamwork. We face different problems and ad hoc tasks with tight deadline. Working with a team who is willing to support each other will make your life much easier.
- Can you maintain work-life-balance?
It’s like long distance running, make a good balance between the work and our life, so that you can run far.
