Well bro, I don't think there is any job you don't have to learn new thing, because if you stop learning you will be kicked out of the boat. So I think you should continue doing your job.

Believe me, there are a lot of people now wish they should have learnt IT to be able to get a job. App developer is hot subject in job market now tho.

I suggest you should learn to invest something, so when you have passive income, you can leave your job and retire early.

As someone who worked in a pressure cooker environment that deals with a lot of $$$, I recommend you to get a mentor who can teach you some soft skills so you can properly navigate unreasonable demands and manage their expectations, otherwise as you progress in your career you will face the same problem again. And also learn more about stress management.

Please develop them. Your technical knowledge + soft skills + stress management will secure your job for at least the next 5 to 7 years until the next economic disruption. And please don't be tempted to think so much about investments you don't understand at all, the world is changing, the way we understand investments or financial shortcuts or retirement will also be evolving. You're welcome.
