Working in a job as a competent, dependable, professional worker has a life cycle with a formal beginning and an ending. Introverted people are often stereotyped as loners – people who don’t like the company of others, and are therefore happiest in jobs where they can work alone. This is a complete misunderstanding of what introversion is! Yes, there are some introverts who fit that description – but there are just as many who don’t.
One career expert, Alison Doyle, estimates the average person changes jobs ten to fifteen times (with an average of 12 job changes) during his or her career. Many workers spend five years or less in every job, so they devote more time and energy transitioning from one job to another.
I try to share this with others too when they question whether or not it is a good thing morally/spiritually to charge a fee for spiritual work and I share that yes, it’s an even exchange and balance of giving energy. It’s nice to hear someone say this too.
Oddly enough, many people actually believe that poverty in the military is a myth. As a medic, I’ve seen military family members attempt suicide because they are living this myth. I’ve seen countless programs such as Army Emergency Relief and Adopt a US Soldier try to save our soldiers’ families. I’ve seen laws such as FY 2007 Military Authorization Act passed that, among other things, clearly make it illegal for payday lenders to prey upon our soldiers.
After reviewing my finances, I don’t think I can swing the pay cut I would have to make but really want to make this seed change in my life. Is there a way to fix this properly in negotiations? Is it ok to say, after reviewing my finances I was incorrect and can not accept below $X or should I just let this whole thing go and start over someplace else? I am losing sleep over this.
The advance testing is what really makes the COT stand out. For example, the A-scan is an ultrasonic measurement of the length of the eye that allows the physician to choose the correct implant for cataract surgery. A B-scan is an ultrasound of the eye. A COT needs to be able to interpret what they see in the ultrasound in order to find a retinal detachment or other ocular abnormality.
