    of course

    it will not help you to fear
    if mgt wanted to end it, you can be the best employee, do the most work
    no use

    in old days, feudal lords parcelled out livelihood to peasants by allowing them to farm their land.

    we are the modern peasants.
    jobs are the modern way the haves dribble out livelihoods to the havenots.

    do not mistake a job for personal fulfilment.
    only starry eyed kiddos think their job is something that they love to do.
    it is just something to bring home the bread.

    I am toying with the idea of giving up my full-time job to concentrate on photography in a year's time. This is the extent of how I am afraid of losing my job.

    No point to be just afraid of losing job. Do something about it. I'm glad I've done the hard work for the past 5 years to do the groundwork of working for myself.

    I happen to enjoy what i do, altho i don't fear the day i happen to lose my job (however unlikely that actually is...), i can always do something else like teach or research... money is not the beginning or end of anything.

    I read something about passive income. I think most people generally are very dependant on their job. Once lost, their savings can only last for a short period while they hunt for a new job.

    I guess, we should be building up our passive incomes. Though I dun have any now

    what is passive income? interests from funds in the banks?

    Well, I guess I ought to count my blessings. I'm in one of those "very stable" civil service jobs, but sometimes I fear being stuck in a dead-end job, forever doomed to mediocrity. And I have no talent to do anything else, so jumping ship would not be an option even if I wanted to.

    Sorry. Bad day. Just kena shelled by boss lah, that's why.
