Reason 3 – Better job security:
Is your job secure?
There’s more been written on this subject in recent years than any other topic and it’s now almost taken for granted that a career in the 21st Century is not for life and as this article puts it it’s “all as a result of globalisation, outsourcing, contracting, downsizing, recession and even natural disaster, “job security” can seem like a thing of the past”.
The only time I’ve come close to feeling secure in a job was when I first started working but that was Government work, the Army however, as the Daily Mail put it that was in the years when “it was perfectly normal to join a firm after leaving school or college and to stay there until retirement and the award of the inevitable gold watch at the age of 65”.
More than likely most of us will have to change jobs and even careers several times in our working life and the associated stress and uncertainty weighs heavy on individuals.
There is an argument that, “not everyone is entitled to be stress free and secure in their jobs, it’s the nature of globalisation and it’s healthy for the economy.”
And that may be true.
However, perhaps nowadays we all work too hard in our jobs, deal with people we don’t really like, get steamrollered into a 40 year plan that leads to retirement on a minimal income and so on.
As mentioned in reason 1 when you are in those situations you should not rely mainly on your job, have an alternative strategy in place alongside your job.
Way back in 1996 a good friend of mine told me “if you keep doing what you’re doing you’ll get what you got, if you want things to change then you’ll need to do something new”.
If you’d like to do something new that could lead to quitting your job in 2020 and never worry about job security again then find out more about what Ann and I did more than 20 years ago. Click here to learn more.
