FOCUS ON WORK, FROM HOME

Post available in English and Romanian

De cand a inceput criza COVID-19, pentru multi a fost din ce in ce mai greu sa distanteze viata personala de cea profesionala. Angajatii care pot lucra de acasa au inceput sa se adapteze la noua normalitate. Beneficiile, cel putin pentru mine sunt multe. Imi place ca ajung din dormitor la birou in doar cinci minute. La revedere, mijloace de transport aglomerate! Alte beneficii includ programul flexibil, sentimentul de siguranta de acasa si haine comode.

Sunt si persoane care isi pierd repede concentrarea acasa. Iata cum ma descurc eu.

Balancing personal and work life has never been harder since the COVID-19 crisis started. The employees that can perform their jobs from home started to slowly adjust to the new normal. The benefits, at least for me, are many. My favorite perk is being able to travel from my bedroom to my office in no more than five minutes. So long, pesky commute! Other benefits include a more flexible schedule, the safe feeling of your own home, or a comfy outfit.

But some people can get easily distracted by this familiar environment. Here’s how I remain focused.

WHAT COMES FIRST? PASSION OR MONEY?

Ce este mai important pentru voi? Un serviciu care va aduce satisfactie sau un serviciu mai bine platit? Va rog sa nu il lasti pe idealistul din voi sa raspunda singur pentru ca deja stiu raspunsul: un serviciu care iti aduce mai multa satisfactie.

Am fost in ambele situatii, si oricat de cinic ar suna, voi alege mereu un salariu mai bun si beneficii, in ciuda satisfactiei. Nu ma intelegeti gresit, este foarte bine sa ai un serviciu la care te duci de drag, dar numai cativa dintre noi sunt destul de norocosi sa imbine placerea cu un salariu bun. Asa ca iata punctul meu de vedere:

What is more important to you? A job that brings you satisfaction or a job that delivers more in terms of money? Now please, don’t let the idealist in you answer this question alone, because I already know the answer: job satisfaction.

I was in both situations and as cynical as it may sound, I will always choose a better salary and job perks over high job satisfaction. Don’t get me wrong, loving what you do has major benefits, but only a few of us are lucky enough to do what they love and make good money out of it. So hear me out:
