I have heard this statement from so many people – it hardly matters about the age of the person or the gender! Largely life is about being happy and successful. Each person has to decide what is being happy and what is being successful.
Now success is a function of
your job x the money you make x family x friends x attitude …….and each of this value has to be a POSITIVE integer. The advantage or disadvantage is people do not think of life being so easy to segment.
Even when they are looking for a job they DO NOT PRIORITISE what they want. For example the following could be the criteria:
– I do not wish to travel for more than 30 minutes
– The minimum salary @ which I will work is Rs. 12,00,000 p.a.
– I need to be home by 7pm to be with my kids
– My job should not involve TRAVEL outstation for any OVERNIGHT trips
– My job should be very interesting
– I should have chance to interact with people my age or younger than me
– I do want / do not want a job involving a lot of local travel everyday, to me it is tiring.
Any of these can be a good reason to change jobs. However do not try to combine conditions, be clear many of these conditions are either ‘or’.
For example if you live in Kharghar and say ‘I want a job near my house and pays Rs. 45,00,000 for head of operations’- sorry no such jobs are available!
YOU have to decide what you want. All other conditions should be IGNORED….
For example if you say ‘I want to make money and nothing else is important’ you should be willing to go to Saudi Arabia, Russia, Bahrain,….to earn money. Then there is no point in cribbing about food, family life, weekends, etc.
Similarly if you want to be with your family…then do not crib about the money you make, the fact that your friends are travelling,….etc.
So a job too is about GOAL SETTING. If you are getting what you want –
Job security (government job),
High salary (mnc job),
Nice working hours (some private sector employers who are looking for senior employees)
…decide what you want, seek it, get it, and be happy with it. Stop looking at others – you do not know what they want, what they sought and what they got.
In most cases if you know the full story…you will realize you are in the same boat….:-)
