i should add...
i once made a playlist for my wife with 70 versions of should i stay or should i go
she hated her job and had a better offer
but she was anxious or whatever (high histamine now i think?)
yes, “the devil you know” might be “better than the one you don’t”
but also worth considering the key lines from that song:
if i go there will be trouble
and if i stay it will be double

hahahahahaha
we moved, there are problems, but it’s been a great improvement. every situation is different of course.
switzerland’s economy looking great right now and the franc is a safe haven.
with italy in trouble and germany in slowdown, ireland at risk with brexit (but poised to take up financial business from london nevertheless), populists all around you, etc, euro prospects are a bit... uncertain

I don't know man, I need to think it through. Here in Slovakia I make way less money, but also the costs are really low - and the wage/costs ratio is higher than I'd have in Switzerland.

some thoughts bouncing in my head you’ve probably already considered but i’ll mention nevertheless

-what are your opportunities for advancement/ skill acquisition/ if you stay?
-same, if you go?
-working conditions/job satisfaction/etc?
-have you mentioned this wage ratio to the swiss? did they say anything?
-how is their offer to you comparable to salaries of professionals like you there? and how do these people live?
-which of these large “deductions” have alternatives, and which ones are unavoidable?
-are there short term “austerity” options that would let you keep more money in your pocket while you find your place in the new system?
-what are the prospects for your partner’s work, or not, and change in income?

not asking you for answers (much less publicly, lol internet) but offering things to consider.

maybe this is a little short term to recommend you the book DECISIVE by dan and chip heath but yeah. if you’re a quick reader get to it right now. also comes as audio book. discuss it with the family. actually, the very first chapter is about a historic job offer

last thing is: what would be your options if you went but then wanted to go back? (“prepare to be wrong” the heath bros. call it). and what would be your options if europa takes a shit and your current job starts to suck hard or the politics go awry?

Was just playing some SF3 with a Japanese player. I took a couple games off of him. Japanese and Americans play styles are dramatic as fuck in their differences. Americans are overly aggressive and Japanese people are patient and essentially let you hang yourself.

This is like standing on the edge of a cliff blindfolded and taking a step forward


I have been in this company for the last 9 years. 9 years of my life!


It's so hard, really. My confidence is in the toilet.

wat. your confidence?

your confidence is always in the toilet before you give a presentation. then you ace the presentation.

rinse, repeat.

anyway don't know if you read the book but it has a lot of good advice. stuff like "ooching". oh yeah. you don't have to move all at once maybe (depends on your situation but... yeah).

so, 9 years... what made you decide to go, in the end? journalist murders? erin brokovich? pregnant coworkers? opportunities for professional growth? economic climate? ???

and what's the fear? any way that you can deal with those potential downsides?

(also, i thought it was a move within the company? maybe i misread)

if it's an important decision (it is) you probably should make time, because it's a good decision making method. not only for making the decision itself, but for handling all the rest that comes with any big decisions (uncertainty, downsides, etc)

but ok i found you a summarized version for "emotionally sensitive people" lol. this page happens to be better than the pdf poster on the authors website

it's a good explanation, see:

https://blogs.psychcentral.com/emoti...cision-making/

but it's certainly not complete nor as well articulated as the book

just google "wrap decision making" and see what you can gather. might have a tool there you've been missing in your toolbox, and could help you.

ok, best wishes dude!

they just called me from Zurich. They really want me there.


I have to tell them final decision by next Tuesday. It will be a long weekend, and probably sleepless.

oh man, the first chapter of decisive begins with a historic and irresistible job offer to chemist and theologian joseph priestley. he was offered a lot of money to teach some rich man's kids.

he needed the money. at the same time he had his own projects.

i think he wrote to benjamin franklin for advice? i forget. but either way there is a ben franklin method (pros/cons). it's not a very good one.

so that chapter explains how priestley wrote his contract to maximize the positives and minimize risk ha ha ha. it explains the mistakes of the pro/con method and their stuff.

anyway. i can't recommend this book enough. buy it and start it tonight. it is not a very long read. can be tiresome with case studies but okay, better to have cases than speculation. all kinds of cases--jobs, business deals, cancer treatments, homeless reduction programs, etc etc.

there is an audiobook version that is very good and it's the one we originally consumed during a long business trip. listen/pause/discuss. listen/pause/discuss. etc. there are visual downloadables for this so you don't miss out.

it's been invaluable to my family, and we go back to it often whenever there's something big that needs sorting.

i'll say no more but if you can squeeze the time (you can) it's 1000x worth it. k. i gtg as well. cya.

ps- dont let short term emotion fuck you

I'm just really enjoying life at this point. The sun is shining. I have the sweet sounds of Chino Moreno vocal chords ringing in my ear. I'm exploring more post metal, subgenres like atmosludge and doomgaze. these damn whippersnappers. hahaha

video games are so fucking tight, so are superhero comics.

i have a scented candle burning. $7 from TJ MAXX. Sandalwood and Myrrh

So Japanese players are better?

Yeah. They have beastly players. The US and Europe have like maybe 10 players collectively that can hang with Japan’s best...and that’s just to be able to not get mollywhooped by their best. One thing that helps is that their Gods are slowly falling off and not playing as much anymore or now focusing on other games/things.

I still grind every day I can...but this game is another beast....and I play a pretty terrible character.
