I hear the bloggers mentioning the deathbed of the elderly person’s regrets. There are instances in which these people indicate the following regrets.
- Regret of not spending time with their children.
- Regret of not taking action in realising their dreams.
There are no mention of the regret of spending more time for their work. This goes to show that most people do not like the full-time job. This comes the Monday blues which is the first day of every workweek for most countries.
I believe that this should be my motivation of taking immediate action to quit my full-time employment. Why am I not doing so? I conduct my own self-assessment and note the common factor of “fear”.
