Dr. George at Work

Published 12:00 am Saturday, July 11, 2009

Q: I have been living in the same town for 30 years. I am single and thinking about moving to larger city, as I have been offered a job there. I have no family, just a dog, and the move would be rather simple. I want to do this, but am scared. Am I crazy? Moving Too Fast?

A: No, you’re not crazy, just conflicted. Write down the pros and cons. See which one offers the greater advantages. Do research on the new city you will be moving to and see if it offers more. Be sure and research the company, too, and, if possible, find some people who work there. If you are moving out of town, it has been said you need to be increasing your income $8,000 to $10,000 to consider it. Most importantly, be a class act when you leave your present job Who knows? One day you may return. President John F. Kennedy once comment on change: “Change is the law of life. And those who look only to the past or the present are certain to miss the future.”
