I’m not going to try and argue that money is not important. Of course it is. But it is not the only thing that’s important when you are looking at changing jobs. And taking a job solely on account of the fat paycheque it’s going to give you can lead to some serious pitfalls. DISCLAIMER - I included the top reasons, but sadly there are others.

It’s kinda impossible to be bored in today’s world. The internet has just made things so much more visible and accessible. You’re aware of a lot more now in terms of opportunities than you ever were. And that’s great for your interests and hobbies. Anything you want to learn, guaranteed there is some Youtube video on it. In regards to choosing a career path? Not so much.

If you’ve ever been to Guatape, this small Colombian pueblo just outside of Medellin, you probably know about this massive rock you’re supposed to climb (Piedra del Penol if you want to Google it). It takes about 25 minutes, there’s just over 700 steps, and apparently you get amazing views at the top. Every travel blogger says you just HAVE to do it. Well I didn’t and it made me realise a lot.

It’s easy to point to celebrities that love what they do as the exception rather than the rule. Some people are just luckier than others, right? Some people are just born knowing what they want to do, are naturally good at something and the rest just falls into place so seamlessly, right? Hmmm, not really. Although I see why you would tell yourself that.
