Moving up the ranks

A promotion probably isn’t the solution to your problem. It isn’t going to make feel any better about a job you hate. Money, title, a parking space, status is only temporary. A temporary boost in “happiness”.

Paychecks and titles have this unique way of locking us in. “Don’t be stupid, you are not going to find something better” is what we tell ourselves.

Be glad that the job you have doesn’t make you happy. Uncomfortable situations nudge us to move on and take chances. Even if the world is scary.

Instead, feel bad for those who dislike the work they do and have settled for a promotion.

Your soul deserves to be free. Stop looking for a cage to put yourself in.
