This is a very good question. Honestly, when I had my first job after passing the board exam, I am so excited having the 8-5 work, 5 days a week. Then when too much load comes I also need to work even on Saturdays and Sundays and even holidays. It became a routine for me already that came to a point that I am very much exhausted and needed some space to breathe. But one thing that keeps me going back each day is the passion for my job. At first it's only after the compensaation and monthly salary that I got out of it but as the years passed by, I realized that I really love my job. Though it sounds routinary but I really love it. My heart is in it and I love the people that I am working with. I belived it is the plus factor, other than having the job you desired, it's also the feeling of belongingness to the company where each of you are treated like family members already.

Well i love to be travel guide so i can go new places and enjoy my profession. But doing a routine job will bore us unless we take a break in it.

I do better with structures and schedules, so I would want something more routine. I kind of hated it when I first started out because I only did as I was told and did not get to use and share my ideas for the company. Now that I am the boss running the department I started in I get to make new rules and share my ideas with others in the company. I get to be more creative now and do things a little diffrently now then I used to and I love it.

Welcome to mylot yulisupercute, it's good to see you have posted a discussion that you thought over and it's also good to see that you have some arguments why you would choose for one of those two. So first off, a compliment for you on behalf of opening a good topic whilst being new to mylot! Secondly, I think I would prefer a mixture of both. I work with children and I am studying to become a pedagogue. I wouldn't want to give parental advice etc. just on paper or write papers about how children progress, I would also like to treat several children and travel around or go to peoples homes. However, I do like to have some stability and an office to return to and type out everything and have time to overthink things and make up rapports. So I guess for a healthy workenvironment for me it would have to be a mixture of the two.

i am a licensed civil engineer in my country. my first official job relative to the career that i have was confined to the four walls of an office. we used to do engineering work involving designing, estimating, figuring how long to finish the project, trying to project the problems to be encountered...so many more all related to the stages to cope with in coming up with a building, a facility, a bridge or any more infrastructure project being addressed at hand. for a time it was fun. at length, it was boring. but, being a woman, they will never assign me any field work. too bad for women during those years! how lucky women of today can get in terms of the work that they can lay their hands on these days.
