Why am I never happy in a job?
Is anyone else like me? My poor wife. All she wants is a steady husband. And for 20 years at least I find a job, the I'm always looking at other jobs thinking that the grass is greener somewhere else. This kills me. What happens is, I get bored with the job, then my mind is distracted thinking of a way to get out, then consequently my performance starts to falter and I have actually been fired from a couple of jobs. This is why I strive for self-employement because at least I know I can do something I enjoy and it creates challenge.

You need a job with more challenge. Self-employment is tough. Something like 80 or 90 per cent of all small businesses fail in the first year. I guess that would be quite a challenge.
