I really have a hard time with making decisions. It seems that every time I make a decision, I always wish I chose the other. It’s a fact of life, I suppose – the grass is always greener and such.
I’m not sure where to go with my career now. What do you think?
Option 1: A stable though slightly unfulfilling career in admin work that I’ve done before. The pay is decent though not exorbitant, the benefits are marvelous, and the job is steady. Upward mobility wouldn’t exist except for changing companies when I garnered enough experience, though the option to possibly take on more tasks would be there. I wouldn’t need to buy a new car.
Option 2: A brand new career, in an industry I love. The base pay is small but commissions could possibly double what I make in option 1. The hours are long, the position unsteady, the benefits are good but not as great . I don’t have experience doing this before, so I could either fail miserably or succeed fantastically and make 6 figures. I could climb the corporate ladder if I do well enough. I would need to buy a new car.
What would you do? Anyone want to give me your anonymous opinion?
