Of Work and Attachment in My Musings

While majority of my day was pretty decent, something in my mind snapped again. I’m not sure what the trigger is - could be my new colleagues, the slow pace / development, or a mixture of these and other factors. This led me to entertain the thought of looking for a new job again; in fact I have an interview lined up in the next couple weeks, but that’s a story for another day.

I am quite amazed at how people seemingly get along with each other and stay in a company for the long haul. I’ve had past colleagues who have worked in a single company for more than a decade - something unimaginable for me, since I was able to progress my career by jumping ship. I used to be so optimistic about making an impression and contributing in whatever I can. Nowadays, I just find it working as a means to an end - going through the motions and doing the bare minimum. Enlightenment, perhaps?

I am aware that this behavior / outlook might not do me good in the future. But with things already disappointing as they are (notwithstanding my pessimistic nature), then it’s just break even, is it not?
