There is an instance in which I wondered whether I pull a trigger on the full-time employment. I received an advice from a well-known Singapore blogger. He highlighted that things became a lot “clearer” when he reached his late 30s.
He mentioned that this is not an “enlightenment” by any stretch of the imagination. He found himself peering through the smoke and mirrors and managed to see the strings pulling on him when he looked up.
His new found “awareness” cut across different realms; be it politics, economics, spirituality, relationship and philosophy. He had enough and decided to retire from the full-time employment at 44.
Based on the above reasoning, I started to know why I am hesitant to pull the trigger on the full-time employment. I am concerned that if I live till 100 and more, the run-out of money and rising medical costs. There are lot of “ifs” in my mind.
However, if I know I will go selling salted eggs in 5 years’ time, I definitely feel that I already have sufficient and can make the appropriate decision.
