A life without risk maybe smooth but not adventurous , the way you want it to be, you are somehow consolidating with your surroundings to adjust, taking those bold decisions when time comes is just like hitting the rod when it’s hot, to get the desired results. Sharing a similar life experience where a bold decision brought a big change in my life.
Just after completing my Master’s it was a rat’s race to get a decent job in a company where employees are not considered as work horse and more of human beings, sounds easy but it’s a deceiving game of HR policy where the carrot (package) is good enough to change your mind, which is what exactly happened with me.
Working for hours and hours, chasing deadlines, sometimes overtime to get those extra perks and appreciation from bosses so that I could get a decent increment and a position in the corporate space. Well all this was leading to a boil at home and slowly and steadily my life routine was wake up, eat, work, eat, home, sleep, repeat. So basically all my leisure time was absorbed by this increment and position scenario and all I was left with was nothing actually, the emptiness surrounded me in the bunch of people who were not my family, friends but colleagues at office.
The uncertain working habits due to shifts proved fatal, I developed some health issues and was on constant strain physically due to the work pressure. All this made me think about my job and life was I doing the right thing? Am I stretching too hard to achieve? Should I rethink on doing something to have a better life? these questions were haunting me to forge a new greater decision to start a new life, a life which had more peace, happiness, family time, leisure, but it was all going in my head and quite indecisive what should I do.
When such critical decisions are to be taken, I usually consider advice from parents, friends and relatives to get perspective and finally go with my instinct. After some days of thinking and trying to figure out what would be best for me considering my life, and following my instinct to start a new life, I decided to quit my job and move out from Pune to Mumbai to set up my business, thou shifting was not easy and I had to scarifies many aspect to come on this decision, but today I can say that a bold decision brought a big change in my life with the right believe to take the risk and conviction of achieve greater then what I already was at the job place, this life may be full of challenges but it has far more discoveries hidden then my job place where opportunities were limited and growth was steep.
