Hi Jetta,

Good question! A career that pays well and allows for a good work/life balance is everybody's dream. The questions you need to ask yourself is, what makes a job pay a lot of money? Generally jobs that pay a lot are associated with skills that society finds useful and also rare. Doctors that can perform complex surgeries are rare and useful to have, so they can demand to be paid well. So let's define rarity now. Doctors, as an example, are rare because not that many people are willing to put in the work to go through all the extra years of school to become a doctor.

All of this is obvious, but what I'm trying to do is provide you some things to think about to help you find a job that fits what you're looking for - high-paying and good work/life balance. I'd recommend looking for jobs that are valuable and rare. Generally, things that come to mind are going to be jobs that most other people don't want to do, like be a nuclear plant operator (live in non-ideal locations, lots of schooling). There are opportunities out there, good luck finding them!

Hi Jetta,

I will say that "a well balanced life" is very subjective and also very dependent on the phase of your life.

I started off spending most of my time on work and to me, that was what I wanted at the start of my career. Being new to working, you ought to spend more time picking up on new skillsets. And that what drives me at the early stage of my career, to quickly learn and gain as much as possible. I could afford more time focusing on work and is a choice that I have made.

As I start to accumulate more experience, things that I used to spend hours on, I am now able to finish in less than an hour. Now I spend less time finishing the same amount of work, and start prioritizing other parts of my life. I carved out more time on self development books / course, pick up new skill sets not relevant to my work, network with people outside of work etc.

I think it depends on what you really want to achieve. List it down and prioritize what you want to focus on. If you feel the first job you gotten yourself into, is not achieving what you plan, be open minded and try. You will never know till you try.

Hope this helps!

I think this question really depends on the company you work for. Research companies with flexible work styles.. work from home, flex time, etc. There are lots of great companies out their with really great cultures that allow you to make good money while still being able to spend time at home with family.
