Question: if you were in your career and had a position that you enjoyed, and you were offered a higher position (manager, president etc) of course with more pressure and responsibilites and possibly higher pay, would you take the job just to boss others around?
Everyone keeps telling me to do more education after these two years. Discouraging b/c I haven't even made it thru the two years yet, but still. They say I need to get a BA so I can be a paralegal. I am a legal secretary and that is good enough for me right now. I can move up to that position without a BA if I wanted. I can learn more effiecently with experience not 'education'. Am I wrong in believing it might not be that relevant in my future? Is it wrong to not continually getting an education as far as academics? Is it wrong to feel I need to be more prepared and educated on other things that life has to hold than -just- a career?
And who says I want to move up to that position in the first place? I'm just fine being a lil secretary, I get paid pritti well for that. I don't need any more education to get to where I WANT to be. This is MY goal and I'm HAPPY with it.
Am I weird because I wouldn't want to be "the leader"? Even for more money? That I like being given a task, sent to my corner to do it and then bring it back complete? Am I weird b/c I could handle that repetition the rest of my life? Sure it would be nice to have more money, but not if it comes with the responsibilities and pressures of telling others what to do.
This is bugging me. Am I that weird?
I don't want to move up the 'executive ladder'. I don't want to be a lawyer. I want to work for one. I don't want to be a paralegal. I want to be a legal secretary. Thats it. Sorry for the whole "must continually progress in life, being better and better and getting paid more and more" type of people but I'm okay doing the same thing every day for the average amount of pay.
Why do I always have to do, to be, something bigger and better?
Can't I be satisfied with where I'm at?
Since when are individuals' dreams not good enough?
