    Put it into perspective first, you might ideally want it higher or lower but you will get the point.

    Would you rather have:

    A salary of £30,000 doing a job you enjoy, that is very little stress and not tiring.

    A salary of £45,000 doing a job you don't enjoy which gives you large amounts of stress and is so tiring you get home and fall asleep in the chair quite a few nights.

    Discuss.

    £30000 for sure. Money isn't that much of a big deal for me, especially when it's only £15000 more, which relatively speaking is not much. Job satisfaction however...

    £30,000. Well what's the point if you are always tired and stressed, just doesn't seem like it's worth it. Besides £30,000 for me would be fine. And I will be stress free.

    Definitely the £30,000. I'd hate to get home and have no life outside of work, being too tired/stressed from work, etc. I'd rather cut back on some luxuries, and 30k is still decent to live on.

    The £30,000 one. Theres no point in earning loads of money if you carn't go out on a night to enjoy it.

    The £45,000 job sounds like college to me! Maybe this thread is trying to tell me something.

    I don't really identify with this question. A job I enjoy would necessarily be both stressful and tiring.

    You enjoy being tired and stressed out of choice?

    Definitely the £30,000. I would go with the other option if the salary was higher, but hard to say personally. Maybe for £50,000+ I'd do it.

    Necessarily stressful, or necessarily pressured? Probably a subtle difference, people thrive under pressure, they don't thrive when they're stressed and it has sort of nasty health effects.

    Tiring, yeah, I can understand that. You want to feel like you've done a hard day's work.

    If a job is too easy its boring, so I'd take the stressful job on 45k and just deal with the stress, savour it!

    £30,000. I work to live not live to work. I would never do something I hate just for money.
