Worklife patterns have changed a lot over the decades.
There was a time when there was no work after 5 pm but today it is 24 by 7.
In the midst of this rat race where we all are struggling to keep up with our lifestyles, there are some key mistakes that we make while struggling to shape our careers especially when we enter our 30s.
Here are 4 such career mistakes that you must avoid in your 30s, which may help you find a mid-path..
1. You have no financial back up for future
High end shopping is great but it is important that you have a financial backup as well by the time you are in your 30’s. No matter how much your salary has increased, keep that extra money in the savings. Invest it because bills won’t get cheaper.
2. Over working and neglecting relationships
To earn money, we work hard but if you have been overworking and neglecting your personal relationships right now, then You will lose all contacts by the time you are “well settled”. Microsoft product designer Michael Dorian Bach, who is now in his late 30s, told a magazine that you should not just work! “Make memories. The older you get, the harder it is to make meaningful relationships. Foster those while you’re young.”
3. You want to be completely “ready” to start a family
No one is born with parenting skills, it is all a learning experience. Regardless of the family structure, 30s is the right time to decide whether you want to have kids or not. Many parents in their 40s realise that the fear of not being ready to have kids is unfounded because no one is ever ready enough or be prepared adequately for the first time. Just make sure one of you is working though.
4. You have stopped having fun
The money you earn is useless if you are not having fun right now. You may not be in your 20’s so the kind of fun you have in that age is different but that does not mean that you can’t enjoy in your 30’s. This is that time when you ought to balance work and pleasure. Go on dates, travel on weekends, watch your favourite movies, just plan it out so that you have some money going into the savings account and some for paying the bills.
