Hourly Wage: A Better Measure of Work-Life Balance Than Monthly Salary

Do you constantly find yourself comparing your income to others? Do you feel dissatisfied and demotivated when you see others earning more than you? If so, you're not alone. I feel that way on several occasions too. Many people fall into the same trap, especially when it comes to income. But the truth is, this can lead to unhappiness and a lack of motivation.

It wasn't until I was much older that I realized that it's not about comparing your annual or monthly income with others. Instead, it's more productive to look at income on an hourly basis. Some people are willing to put in extra hours and hard work to earn more, while others may prefer to have more free time for other meaningful activities.

If you're feeling dissatisfied with your income, it's important to take a step back and evaluate what truly matters to you. Are you sacrificing your personal life for work? Is there something more meaningful that you could be doing with your free time? Instead of focusing solely on the amount of money you earn, consider what you truly want out of life.

Recently, many people have received their bonus and increment payments, and while it may provide temporary satisfaction, it's important to dig deeper and evaluate what truly makes you happy. Rather than simply chasing after more money, consider what your ideal day would look like. By asking the right questions, you can discover what truly brings you satisfaction in life.

So if you find yourself constantly comparing your income to others, remember that there's more to life than just earning a higher salary. Take the time to evaluate what truly matters to you and what brings you happiness and fulfillment.
