Return to where you were or move on to a new path

Hi.. I found something that've change my mind. So interesting advice, I think.

Before you left your current job, be aware to read this opinion.

I got this advice from here
Hope it can help you to feeling better and make right decision to return to where you were or move on to a new path


What can you learn from this job and take to your next?

So go to work, do your job and then leave work behind and focus on making your self a better person.
That job is one you can not delegate or shirk.

Some people absolutely thrive in this environment, but if you don't enjoy it, there's no reason to stay in it.

If developer cant adapt to a change that improves their productivity years after the functionality has come out, how can you expect them to be on top of the constantly changing technology they're implementing for clients?
Yes, sometimes you'll have code pushed at the last minute to try meet a deadline (and often it will break everything) but it shouldn't be every commit.

You should always have an environment conducive to learning and have people you feel comfortable approaching and asking questions to.
If you don't have this, your skills will stagnate, and you might become bored and burnt out.

And yes, every bad piece of code is always the last guy's fault, and after you leave it will be your fault, whether you wrote it or not.

Just because you are in low productivity, chaotic environment does not mean that you have to be unproductive and chaotic.

Always be learning new things, trying new things, breaking out of the mold and doing it differently, to find bad and good ways.

Don't ever sacrifice your own personal skill and mental development for somebody else's deadline.

Keep your productivity on your terms, not theirs.

Because you are developing a feel for how long things take, and you are keeping records, and growing in seniority at the company, you will be asked to do more and more stuff.
Your responsibilities will grow.

Stress occurs when the perceived amount of work and the perceived amount of life force energy that you need to extend to complete it are disproportionate to your entire life picture.

It's all about you, and how you grow as a person and see your own way through chaos.

Why waste your time, it's precious

Think about staying for at least a year, and see what you can accomplish
If you try, and things remain stressful, then move on.
Or, do you really think that they will hire you when you say that you did nothing?

Set your own parameters for your own parameters for your life
Seek to be the best you can be, and do the best that you possibly can
Never settle for second best. Set your own standards and if you don't like something, then if it is within your power, change it. If you can't move on.

If you focus on being on the best that you can be, and accept that most others don't share that approach, then you will understand the world far better, you will become recognised for who you are, and it will help you cope with situations like the one you have described.
More importantly, it will help you make the right decisions about what you ought to do
You need to watch out for the non performance of other having a detrimental effect on you, and what you are capable of.

When you look back on your career in 30 years time, will you look back at this job and say
"Well, it was hell but I learned so much, I'm glad I stayed"
"Well, it was hell, I was stressed and unhappy. I lost interest in my job, I felt bad and it affected my self confidence"

Get your CV up to date, start looking for new roles and get back to feeling positive and enthusiastic if not all the time, at least more often than not.
Challenge and adversity can be good and character building, but we all need a balance and life is too short to waste time where you are not really developing.

Your work is going to fill a large part of your life, and the only way to be truly satisfied is to do what you believe is great work. And the only way to do great work is to love what you do. If you haven't found it yet, keep looking. Don't settle. As with all matters of the heart, you'll know when you find it. And like any great relationship, it just gets better and better as the years roll on. So keep looking. Don't settle.
