Nigerian employees are very likely to be familiar with existential crisis especially now that capitalism has taken its roots deeply in the economy and everyone is self employed and “living life” on the façade making these typical 9 – 5 employees question their realities.
These are the questions that a typical Nigerian employee would ask themselves at least 20 times daily.
Should I Start That Shoe And Bag Business And Ditch This Job?
One of the social media apps that Nigerians are very familiar with is WhatsApp even if they claim Twitter is. It is all a lie. It is on WhatsApp that almost all your contacts are CEOs and you just look at your position at work, a clerical officer, and you just wonder if you should just send in your resignation letter and use your 20k savings to start that shoe and bag business.
Should I Just Focus On Trading Bitcoin?
Almost every money making person is trading one currency or the other except 9 – 5ers because how exactly are you supposed to monitor the charts if you’re busy working for another person? A Nigerian employee is faced with the question of sticking to their jobs or abandoning their jobs to stay awake trading.
Abi Should I call In Sick?
If you say you haven’t asked yourself this question immediately you wake up every morning for work, you lie.
Is This Going To Be My Life Till I Retire?
This question pops up in an employee’s mind every morning. You ask yourself this question between the moment you open your eyes and the moment you get up from your bed. The reality of this question is that even self-employed people often wonder if they are being stagnant and what move to make next.
Why Do I Spend So Much Hours At Work Just To Have My Efforts Unappreciated?
9 – 5 employees are always faced with this question. It is like you are trying your best, literally spending half of your youth at work and no matter how much effort you put into your job, it isn’t getting as much appreciation as it deserves.
Is My Social Life Dead?
With how much time is being dedicated to work, you start wondering if you aren’t making enough friends, going on enough dates, having enough personal time, even going to parties might be a no no for you because you need a special time with your bed at every slightest chance you get. Sometimes, you find that your love life is going downhill because of your job which leads you to extra questions like “will I ever get married?”
Am I Being Paid Enough For This Stress?
Almost everyone can relate because with this depreciating Nigerian currency, no amount of money is ever enough and when it is coupled with work stress and ill treatments at work, you start wondering if the pay is worth the stress. Like how do you go to work five days a week, literally get eye bags from lack of enough sleep just to steadily be disrespected at work and the only thing you can think of at that moment is if the money you’re being paid is enough for the mental and physical stress.
Should I Branch Out And Try Something Different?
People will always advise you to try something new. That might often be the case when you are an employee, you start wondering if you should leave law for the health sector. How you’ll achieve that is totally up to you. This is a question that mostly comes up in the mind of an adventurous employee or an employee that has been in a particular line of work for a long while and starts contemplating on change.
