All work and no play
When I took my present job there were 9 anesthesia practioners on staff. In two years that number has shrunk to 5. Initially there was sufficient non-work time to enable me to go to the gym everyday, which was rewarding. At the same time I found it convenient to stop by the grocery store, just across the street from the gym, when I was finished with my workout and on my way to the apartment. With the reduction in staff the work load remains constant and so, I've been lucky to get to the gym one or two days a week and haven't been to the grocery in 3 weeks. My satisfaction with the situation has lessened and I'm reconsidering my options/choices. I still enjoy my work but when my days become; work, eat, sleep; repeat X 5, I feel like Jack of "all work no play" fame.. I didn't create or invite the change, but change came just the same and the attractiveness of the situation that brought me here has lessened.
It is beginning to look as though I will be considering a change to offset the change imposed by circumstances over which I had no control. The new paradigm doesn't work for me. I'm at the point in my life/career where I require more off time and less work time, not vice versa.
