Waiting for No RiskAuthor: Byron Pulsifer
I could have easily waited it out putting in a few more years, going through the motions with just enough effort to keep me employed. But, if I did this, I knew that I would be unhappy every day I went to work and wasting away knowing that each day was only a fašade to what I really wanted.
The Concern Was This:
If I leave now, what would I do, and how would I survive financially?
Both of these questions are not ones to be answered easily or quickly.
Maybe it was better just to wait to see how long I could survive in my job before I couldn't take it any longer.
Maybe there would be something in the newspaper or want ads that would be more appealing and give me a reason to leave so I would enjoy my last few years before official retirement.
Many People Think These Thoughts
In one of my past jobs of counselling people, I was told over and over and over again about the desire for a different job, a job that would be satisfying and where one would be appreciated instead of seen as a mere job number of job function.
These people all were waiting for something else, something that would force them out of their current position because it was so much better. But, even more important, it was something that was secure without risk and would give them everything they wanted without having to worry about one thing.
The solution for these people, and for myself in fact, was not and is not a move without risk.
Life Is Full of Risks
Life is full of risk and the wisdom of these words must be repeated over and over again. We all take risks some bigger than others.
It really comes down to how . . .
You can't steal second base
and keep your foot on first."
