On one hectic day back in 2007, I stop looking at my laptop and think..am i a successful engineer now? it's no longer like the old day where i can climb to the top of equipment and apply my magic touch and everything will be alright..i work happily..i still have time with family..
I just realized that i was boxed down with work work work..go back from office..my hp rang..escalation from work..go work again..weekend work..and work..never end..for a company that will never be mine.
I believe I've done more now after 13 years here..but seems like 24hr a day is just not enough, too many crazy work and arrogant voices cracking and screaming, political issue peeking around..i can't just find the 'umph' for the task I did any longer. Is this the kind of work life for me & my family??
No way - I'm not letting this kind of work controlling my life..my family..any longer
it's time for me to change!!
