Think about it this way: when a customer buys something from you, he or she is interested in the value they’re getting for their money. Generally people don’t care about how many hours went into making it, but they might care about what was used to make it, such as clothes. Most people are not interested in time, they are after the value. They don’t know how many hours people might work in a factory and they wouldn’t care even if they did, that’s the truth.
Initially when I just finished high school, my family was all for telling me what to do and what job I should get. Butcher; Civil Engineer; Chef; 7-11 manager; Security Guard – they were all things that I wasn’t interested in and they claimed were only suggestions. All of them have something in common: long hours, and perhaps with some exceptions, minimal pay.
I can accept that some people are meant for some jobs and that some jobs are dirty, but someone has to do them, but I believe that someone is not me. I have to have more confidence that I am worth a lot more than that. That’s why I decided to wait it out and try something else; something that I wanted to do.
