04.04.2011 | 嶄新一章

唔係, 呢個所謂嘅嶄新一章唔係話我結婚生仔, 而係工作上嘅一個重要轉捩點, 因為上星期五四月一日係我喺公司最後一日.. 絕對唔係個容易嘅抉擇, 但係經過多個月不停嘅反思同衡量, 我終於扑錘暫停工作一年, 重返校園攻讀MBA課程..

可能好多人會覺得就咁放棄事業好草率兼可惜, 但係我個人認為有捨先有得, 就當係超過十年不停工作後, 自己能力範圍內給自己一個身心休憩嘅空間.. 可以從而翻新同提昇自己, 認真思考前面條路要點樣行, 何樂而不為呢?? 我唔知咁樣做係啱定錯, 不過一年後我還是一條好漢, 祝福我~~ :)
nope, this new chapter in life is not about me getting married or having a child, but about a turning point in my career, as it was my last day in the company last friday 1st april.. it was absolutely not a peanut decision but after months of thinking and considerations, i finally decided to stop working for one year and go back to school for an MBA..

many might think giving up a good job so abruptly is wasteful, but i see this as emptying my cup to get more fresh water.. afterall if i could afford a physical and mental hiatus after more than a decade of tiresome work, why not?? this one year is important for myself to reset and rejuvenate, to value-add and seriously plan for my path going forward.. i don't know if i'm right but decision made and there shan't be regret, bless me~~ :)

  3. Wow.. that's indeed a big step! Are you going to do it locally or abroad? Most people I know usually opt to do it part time.. but that would mean about 2 years of studies instead of 1. Anyway, good luck to you! :)

    I am working in a good company before where in am highly compensated but i just hate the job and it is really pressuring for me. I decided to gave it up. I realized that it is very important that you love what you're doing ...working is not all about the salary...it is more of doing what you love and all about the things you are passionate to

    謝謝你的支持.. 我已經工作超過十年了, 你才剛起步吧?? 哈哈, MBA是你人生的希望?? 有沒有那麼嚴重?? 應該說是目標吧?? 不過我覺得你現在應該把重心先放在事業上, 兩年後才開看到底需要不需要MBA?? :)

    @ Merryn:
    yeah, going back to school and be a full time student.. you are right, better do this before there are more commitments on me.. :)

    ReplyDelete
  67. @ bluecloud:
    對, 很多人都不會走這么一步的, 通常都是part time, 只有我一個是堅持full time.. 我其實就是想要自己好好休息一下, 讓心靈充電後在來拼博過.. :)

    @ bluedreamer27:
    yeah, it's that company after just 4.5 months working there.. i am now a full time student, haha, just like you so will have more time for blogging i presume.. i think you've been going through the same thing like i did, you are right, sometimes it's not all about money but your life and career and self fulfilment, many factors and considerations you have to take into account.. thanks for sharing your experience too.. :)

    @ CH Voon:
    yeah, this decision caught many by surprise.. well, actually a lot of factors that i've considered, so could be complicated.. anyway, thanks for the support.. :)

  68. All the best to you ! It depends on how you view the case. Further your studies is a good choice too. Can perhaps get a wife from the Uni? haha

    ReplyDelete
  69. 的确是很震撼的消息,
    刚听说你进到一间很不错的新公司,
    没想到会离开呢!
    看到离开的理由是为了上课,更提升自己,
    这样就很认同你了!
    好的工作机会还会有的,
    要看自己有没有能力去接受而且。
    很好的决定!加油咯!^^

    ReplyDelete
  70. @ mNhL:
    yeah, it really depends how you treasure what you have decided to do.. so i should never regret as action has been taken, and i should regard this as a good opportunity to value-add myself (not to find a wife in uni lah of course, haha)..

    @ Ashley:
    對呀, 新工作才做了四個月半我就走人了, 的確很讓人驚訝吧?? 不過既然有這麼一個機會去給自己增值, 而且趁自己沒有那麼多commitments的時候, 給自己一年時間, 我覺得還不錯吧?? 謝謝你的鼓勵和加油~~ :)

  71. 份工好似啱啱轉啫喔,咁快就辭工?不過人生有幾多個十年?能夠做到想做嘅事情喺一種幸福,我都好想離宮,回歸祖國。
