Everything is changing, all of us are being squeezed by vanishing pensions, less time to spend with our children, diminishing job security, more stress at work so why plan to quit your job?
Here are my five reasons in no particular order, but feel free to click on the link to read the one that is more important to you.
- More Time with Your Children
- A Better Retirement Pension
- Better Job Security
- Less Daily Stress
- Live a Better lifestyle
Reason 1 – More time with your children:
According to the Daily Mail spending to much time at work is the biggest regret parents have about their children’s early years.
The article is based on a study of 2000 parents and it found that more than 75% of parents have a least one big regret in these early years.
More than 65% of parents in the study admitted that they would do things differently if they could have the time again.
The study also revealed that in addition to working too hard, the other top five regrets included worrying to much about things that didn’t really matter, not enough quality playing time with their children, not enough holidays and not being there to take enough photos.
More than half of the parents admitted that they regretted not having more quality time with their children when they were younger.
Lauren Revell, from Huggies Little Swimmers, which commissioned the research, said: ‘Things can seem simpler with hindsight, and it seems you definitely live and learn when you’re a parent.
When your little ones are young, it’s easy to imagine your baby being that age forever. It’s only a few years down the line, as your children are getting older, that you really start to look back and wish you had done some things differently.
‘When it comes to parenting, many mums and dads wish they could spend a little more quality time with their little ones, but given the pressures of daily life sometimes these opportunities can be lost.
‘Lots of parents have regrets because it’s very easy to look backwards – that being said, it’s never too late to change those – whether it’s spending more time with your children, going on family holidays or taking your little one swimming.’
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”.
