sirdle Posted March 22, 2006 Share Posted March 22, 2006 Positives:I am working on an interesting and challenging project that will benefit my career tremendously. The work I am doing will improve employee safety and compliance with environmental regulations.I am being very well paid.If I quit this job, I may not be able to afford the house I live in and I will have to move to another state.My wife loves living where we are. Negatives:I am worknig 70-80 hours per week.I live offshore for 5-days at a time which makes it impossible to follow a vegan diet.I have little opportunity for aerobic exercise.I have little access to weights which is causing my muscles to atrophy.I share an 8' x 10' room with 3 other guys, all of whom snore....And because of that, I usually get less than 4 hours of sleep each night.The project is expected to last another 4 months. This is totally stressing me out. My brother once told me, "Don't make any irreversible decisions when you haven't had any sleep." But here I am... another sleepless night... and all I can think about is how nice it would feel to pack up my tools, get on the morning boat, and make a new start somewhere else...
