Few weeks ago I decided to take some time off from work because I feel like I was so burn out and as they say in economics I don't see any return of investment. I had another offer from another company a better pay but it will for sure turn my world up side down. It's a whole new thing and I don't know if I can take a risk. Don't get me wrong I love to gamble sometimes but this time the stake is too much that I am not sure if I will take it or not.
Solution: one month off from work. I wanted to really think as hard as I can on what I should do, so I took one month off and now that that month is over I finally know what I want.
In the end I still want to be a teacher, one of the most underpaid job on earth, but I think I was looking about the return of investment in the wrong way. It may not see it financially, but I am happy, I am happy when my students send me postcards, when they send me emails and tell me how far they can go. One student made an impact on my decision to stay on my profession. His name is Hediki Ota, he was really a nice guy and he study hard, now at the age of 24 he already tour the world and he wrote a book about his tour. He open a business and now he is one of the youngest Company President in Japan, he is a living proof that a dream is enough to motivate a person. Unlike other young President he did not inherit his position, he work for it.
I know not everyone in my class will be like Hediki but some of them will be as successful as he is, and that is my return of investment, being a part of the lives of future doctors, lawyers and leaders.
