Re: Studying the obvious
You'd be a bit of a fool if the money was the only thing you looked at. I've had well paid jobs and have left them for lesser paid jobs with better work conditions or better opportunities to use new technology and advance my knowledge.
I could earn a lot more than I do now, but it would mean moving to a big city and actually having less in my pocket at the end of the month, due to higher costs of living and it would be more stress and I couldn't take an evening stroll in the countryside. The work-life balance is just as, if not more important than pure monetary considerations.
