The difference between a job hop and a career move

In a day, you have 24 hours.
If you are like me, you will spend at least 8 hours of that sleeping.
Another 1 hour on hygiene.
An hour and a half eating (breakfast, lunch and dinner).
Another hour and a half traveling to and from work, if you are lucky, that is.
A couple of hours on personal work
About 9 hours in the office.
Leaving you all of ONE HOUR to do what you like.

If you take a job where you can put in those 9 hrs for better pay, or a better designation, or something like that, then that's a job hop.
But if you find a place where the ONE HOUR (doing what you like) gets converted to TEN HOURS of enjoyment, then you have made a career move. It's that simple. And it's all in your hands.

Don't just find your next job. Go ahead - make your career move!

Sigh! How I wish my hours were so neatly compartmentalised! I work from home, so my working hours, eating hours, child-minding hours & sleeping hours are all tangled in a heap of confusion!
