Oh dear! Life is too short for a full-time job. Too short, and too valuable, to stay at your desk for ten hours a day!
There is never enough time to do what you love, so make a decision to do it now! Dedicate your time to what you like to do and enjoy doing it!
Part-time employment works well for some people, especially for a woman who has to look after her family and home. Or for those of you who need the freedom to enjoy yourself, soak up the sun, spend some time dedicated to the garden, need to be at home when your child returns from school or if you just want extra time to unwind, part-time employment would work well for a person like you.
Like Barry Schwartz said "Why do we work? Why do we drag ourselves out of bed every morning instead of living our lives just filled with fun"?
Of course, we have to make a living, but few people would choose to work for ten hours a day. This is where you could consider a part-time job, as it provides a salary, the potential for career progression whilst also allowing you to live your life.
If you don't feel like working full time, then don't! Enjoy your life! You don't have to occupy a desk for 10 hours a day as there are lots of part-time jobs that can help you fulfil your needs and make you happy. It might also help you save money in the long-run if, for instance, you don't have to spend as much time and money commuting on a full-time basis.
Possibly, if you are a parent, then a full-time job might force you to juggle your childcare , and you might miss important milestones in their life.
Part-time jobs can be a brilliant solution in lots of different situations and you may find that working part-time can be enormously beneficial to you, in lots of different ways. You will have the opportunity to gain experience (which will boost your CV), earn sufficient money and create the opportunity to spend quality time with your family and friends.
So, make sure you make the most out of it and choose a job you love!
