How time flies, I’ve been in my new job for more than a month now. To be honest, it was a struggle getting used to new work environment as well as different job scope again and time just flew past in an instance. In fact, I was shock when I look at the date today and realised that I’ve been busy working without much rest for the past 1 month plus.
This is my 3rd job now and every change of job, the work somehow becomes tougher. Of course, the pay is higher as well and with ever career move, more responsibilities comes with the higher pay. I had some catch up with my ex colleagues as well as some friends recently and everyone feels the same way. At least I’m not alone in this.
A few years ago, I set my goals to aim for higher income. When goals are set, somehow we work towards it and it becomes a reality. Then, we reflect on the goals we set and think through whether its the right goals for us? While seeking higher income was the right thing to do, there are sacrifices to be made as well. I definitely have lesser time for other things in life and feel totally burnt out on some days. For now, I’m quite used to my new lifestyle already and then the question is what’s next?
With higher pay, finances are definitely not so tight anymore. Saving more money also becomes easier even though I spend more. Budgeting becomes less of a hassle as I don’t need to count every single cent I spend anymore and still manage to save some money every month.
Throughout the past 5 years since I started this blog, I’ve explored various ways to optimise savings, increase income, learn about insurance, housing, CPF and also invest my money. There are hits and misses in everything that I’ve learnt and tried and I share this on my blog as much as I can. I started out learning from other peoples’ blogs as well and through this got to know quite a few like minded friends in the community.
