That doesn't make sense, you might think, knowing that I am actually planning on working more now that #3 son will be graduating homeschool next week and be off to college soon.
Not a big issue when the job was only a few hours a week and I viewed it as a way to earn a little extra cash, but suddenly a very big deal when I was now required to re-apply for the job, fill out a multi-page employment application, find a notary to witness something (I don't know what, I didn't read that far), jump through some other hoops (nine in all) and take a drug test. A drug test? For a part-part-time job I accomplish in my home? That I have already performed for six years? And I am expected to do all this on my own time without being paid?
That's why I said I quit because of time.
What value does your time have to you?
I realized that this job was not one I particularly enjoyed nor was it in line with some tentative goals I have. Realistically, the time it would take to accomplish the work would be better used working toward long-term plans.
Even though this means a loss of income for a while, I think using my time to take steps to achieve other ambitions is worth it to me.
With every decision we make, we need to count the cost not only in terms of time and money, but satisfaction, peace of mind and fulfillment. So, what is your time worth to you?
