I’ve been going through this major “Dilemma” in life..Whether to change my job or not. I got this damn good offer( I mean $$$$ wise)
So anyways, On one hand I’ve got technically Challenging, potential 6 day weeks, potential 12 hour days, potential BRAIN work , a potential Learning experience and bla bla bla bla..And on the OTHER hand I’ve got a Bindaas life where I can blog when i want to , chat when I want to, and still manage to “WORK” and give a good impression to Da Bosses… (Hmm Sounds like Paradise Doesnt It 😉 ..and no I am not going to reveal my company’s name 😛 ) Although I did feel the need for a “challenging” job which will MAKE me work ( I’ve always needed someone to TELL me to study threatening me with a stick .. right from my school days! ),My Evil-Lazy twin was slowly tugging at my sleeve at every point I thought about the other job . In the end,when my current boss gave me just a couple of “logically” convincing points ( I would like to believe I am “logical”) , I decided to stay put.. Evil-Lazy Twin Won !! I mean who doesnt want a nice,comfy job? I did want to work in a challenging place, but then (* consoling myself/ justifying my decision *) HOW creative can you get in this software industry anyways? And As my brother says, If I had wanted my JOB to get me to work , then I could have just become a COOLIE in a railway station!! Hmmmm..yup, that would have certainly gotten some work outta me.Just consoling myself(again) that IF i want ,I can “learn” something here too and If I cut out my “extra-curricular” activities, I can actually be efficient/productive/hardworking 🙂 ! I am confused with my own self though, What is it that I want from life?? Just to be comfortable all my life or Will I ever want to RISK a change ? And How am I ever going to figure out what I WANT to do in life, if i remain a frog inside this well ??? Oh well, there’s always NEXT year …
Till date my list of priorities/routine runs something like this..
- Check Mail
- See If someonez online to chat with..and Chat with them
- Check “Official” Mail and Send Status reports with the necessary flowery words and state the same thing that I’ve been stating for 4 months now (Believe me, a Thesaurus comes in very handy..I’ve learnt to write – I am wrapping up this project – in 15 different ways!)
- Read Economic Times / Times Of India / The Hindu / CricInfo (GK / current affairs is beriii important ..need to get all that Gyan to discuss things on the lunch table 😉 )
- Check out how many hits my blog got / GET ppl to go to my blog JUST to get more hits 😀
- Oh wait, Just remembered I was at work, So “work” for a while
- Lunch Time
- Repeat 1 – 5
- Time for Snacksss (Slurpp )
- Repeat 1 – 6
- Time to LEaVE
So There , I guess If I repeat #6 a few more times and cut out #1 , #2, #3 a few times , the company’s productivity will go up by 75% atleast ;).. They say Old Habits Die Hard but I am going to put this to test right from today…so If anyone sees me online, Please REMIND me about what I’m supposed to be doing.:D..Here’s to a “new” beginning or watever!!
