“It’s just easier…
If I stay.”
Maybe you have thought this at various points of your career or are thinking about it now.
After all, you’re in a pretty good position, maybe you’d consider it “cushy”.
Pay is decent, the people you work with are easy to get along with, you’ve formed some meaningful relationships, and the work itself isn’t too stressful.
But you feel something is missing, possibly the challenges that you still enjoy are no longer available.
Although, looking for that lost element elsewhere can be such a chore.
So the decision is:
“I’ll just sit tight for awhile, let’s see what happens, it’s much easier this way.”
I’d venture to guess, many of us have experienced this thought process.
