does it matter to you how much you are earning...

when you love what you are doing at work, when you have found the perfect people to work with, and when you have found the right path of career you want to take... will you still be looking for a better job, with better opportunity and of course better pay when everything feels perfect already? what's your stand on this?

At different stages in our life our priorities differ. Obviously money comes first when we have to settle down and once we settle down then comes a question why not look for something that is more satisfying, and enjoyable although it may not give more money. I gave up my job rather early in life and started my own business - a business that is related to my hobby. Although it did pay me well money was not the goal but doing what I enjoyed the most.

HI, sound so much interesting... well, it is really depend. If you really really love your current job now then you dont have to look for another job. However, if you need a better pay then I would switch too... I believe nothing is always perfect and nothing that would stay in one place. You desire to upgrade from one step to another one ... you know, getting better everyday... you dont have to stuck in one place. Good luck

Well, that depends, if you are married and have a family to take care of, how much money you are making depends on your family survival. Let's say you love to write and you want to become a famous writer, but you haven't signed any book deals, and if you don't have a deal, you will not make any money. Sometimes you have to sacrifice what you love the most in order to take care of your family. Not being said that your dreams won't become a reality, they will but the family is first and you can work on the rest later down the road or do both, but you just can't be a writer full time. Depends on the job and status.

Of course, it matters. I may consider what you have mentioned if it can support all the needs of my family, the luxuries can wait, I have to save some for that. I can endure the hardship of the work and the bad relationships with co-workers if the pay is more or bigger than I can earn. Well, that's life! I'm doing it for the benefit of my children.

It ever happened to me that although the boss and colleagues all are friendly but the salary that i am getting is very low. At that time, i am just a trainee in that company, so i can't complain about it. I gained my working experience through that company and i appreciated it a lot. Since i am planning to further my studies at that time, so i decided to go for a better job. The last job that i had really makes me feel enough and happy with it.
