The grass is greener..
So i heard ( well, heard it directly from the horse's mouth too!) that few of my "role-model"s in Anaesthesia is moving on with their lives! Meaning they are off too the private sector! As Anaesthesia specialists they are the best in their field and I am sure those who've come across them would agree as much!
Money is certainly the motivation factor here ; getting at least 5 FOLD more than what they earn now is an offer one cannot resist. That is the unfortunate lure which only a stupid fool would refuse. Its easy to say we want to help mankind and treat the unfortunate but in reality, life is about expenses and the more money one has, the more one can be sure off. Lots of loans to pay off , car , housing , child education etc and life is not getting cheaper by the day.Its true that private life can be taxing and busy but at the end of the day , the amount of money justifies it!
Wifey herself is contemplating because of the thesis trauma she had in these last few months of her speciality training( if there was any training in the first place). Some are made for it and some could just not do it ! Wifey found out late to realize she is not into academia life so much. After hearing what my seniors will be getting , wife herself went into the angan-anagan mat jenin mode!! Ahahahaha
Well as for me.. I can't really say whether i will continue to serve or join the "dark" side. I still have not passed my exams yet! It is very early for me to say but of course , this topic is a possibility and a reality check for every of us. You enjoy working with the chaos and havoc in government seting but after sometime maybe it is not the point anymore..
I reckon what is important is our true intentions ; niat. And in sincerity insya allah , god will reward for ones' deeds.
