This morning, as usual, I was taking the lift up to my office and I stumbled upon 'The man'. I know him. But never worked closely with him. With a good smile, I greeted him in the crowded lift and we waited the lift to bring us up to our office. Upon getting out of the lift, he asked if I could meet him later in his room. Shocked, I acted calm and nonchalantly said OK.
A little curious and anxious about what was in his head, I have to calm myself and stay cool while guessing his intention. Was there something that I did that caught his attention? Or was I that 'attractive'? So when the time came, I took a deep breath and braved myself into his room.
And we have a good almost an hour conversation. 'The Man' is my big boss. Or should I say, my current boss's boss? The fact is, he's offering me a better opportunities. Ain't gonna go into detail about that. But I am kinda excited and a little worried at the same time. Excited because of the opportunities, worried because I am not sure if I could take up the challenge and also hand over my current projects in hand to my poor colleagues.
Hell knows how busy I am. It makes me realize that I have no life other than my busy working life. Pathetic as it may seem, I seriously, for one moment, thought about re-adjust my priorities in life. Again, pathetically, I always ended up being too busy to do any adjustment for my life. So little do I know that I am basically blinded by my overwhelming working life.
But things are different now. Apparently I have been spotted! My talent and strength have been noticed. And my efforts paid off. I've got a better offer. The only thing I have to do now is to make up my mind and come out with a final decision by the end of this week! Goodness, so little time to think over.
It's a very difficult decision really. I like my current supervisor, and already familiar with all the projects in hands. If I took the offer, I'll have to start everything anew. New supervisor, new team mates, new projects, new environment, with better salary and welfare, of course.
Pros and cons... what-ifs and maybes... guess I'll have another few sleepless nights...
