Its 8.51 pm IST and I am in office, surprising fact is I came in at 6.00 am.
Now that’s a odd shift but when you sign in a contract with a client to offer your services 24/7 people like me actually don’t have choice, we would be thrown with a statement “you are being paid!”.
I have been thinking for a while and its really eating me up from within, I am earning almost 50 grands a month but I have no time to spent with my family, its been ages I have been on a holiday and I haven’t been on a date since past two years.
Now there are couple of reasons I would like to mention about not been able to date someone.
– I am and IT professional and I am into Operations ( 24/7 routine and the shift circus)
– No female counter part in operations ( now that’s the scenario almost everywhere barring a few exceptions which I have never experienced)
Now all these environmental variables make me nostalgic and i thinks of the 80’s and 90’s when people used to work for 7hrs a day and come back and spent time with their family and then retire on time with enough savings.
But today I want to be fast, need a huge apartment, a speedy sporty car and designer wardrobe.
This has all actually pushed me in a viscious circle I run behind money, take any job which pays me well and then its the same old story.
I think i need a Professional Paradigm Shift and before this I need a “MENTAL PARADIGM SHIFT”
I am going to do what I am best at, what I enjoy doing and not run behind money, it will follow me automatically.
That’s what SRK did, that’s what probably every successful person does.
Its a tough way but as we all know “NO GUTS NO GLORY”
I am going to have a PARADIGM SHIFT soon because I already had my “MENTAL PARADIGM SHIFT”
My shift ends at 2.30 pm IST
Dedicated to all the people behind computers across all the continents.
