You’re in the wrong profession
I was talking to a friend of mine who has had quite a bit of success as a software engineer. They told me that they had chosen the right profession in part because their architect friend was having a tough time financially.
Or at least, wasn’t doing as well as the software engineer.
My friend meant nothing by this. They were just pointing out facts, and saying they had chosen what turned out to be the ‘right’ path for them.
But I don’t think you become an architect for the financial reward. I don’t think you go through all of the rigamarole to become an architect just for the payday.
If you really want to do something, it isn’t your wallet telling you to do it, it’s your soul. As such, it’s your imperative to find a way to make it happen. Even if that means picking up a software engineer gig on the side.
If financial rewards are what is enticing you, by all means try it, just don’t expect to go the distance. You may well find out after all you were in the wrong profession.
