Not settling for less, are we?

When I chose Civil Engineering as my career, I was 18 years old. I was allowed to make a choice yet that freedom didn’t help much. I was confused, not sure if that was the right field for me. During the 4 year course, I did well, scored well, my professors liked me,I enjoyed the subjects and had a beautiful group of friends!!

But at the end of the course, I wasn’t sure if I’d love to work in the technical field.

Does this happen with our generation? We aren’t like our dads or granddads, (not mentioning grandmoms or moms cuz back then they weren’t working) who pursued one course and then stuck to it and excelled at it.

We want more out of life. We don’t stop where we got to, we ask questions, we see if we can tweak stuff to suit our needs!!


As parents, they may have found it weird or kinda inconsistent, must have worried them cuz their child’s future seems blurry!

But for us, I can tell you, our future is great! Believe me!

Demanding more, asking for more is good 🙂

After Engineering, I did Construction Management, so I could get into the training dept. (HR) of a Construction Company..n four years of work was the limit of tolerance

I quit my job in the Training field, cuz that hectic life was frustrating! I must have laughed at myself (n cried too) cuz I’d given up such a well paying job, for what? I dint even know for what.

Now, I don’t regret it. Not even a minuscule bit of an atom!!

Sometimes all we got to do is allow ourselves to feel trapped! Cuz that feeling takes us to freedom. That trapped up- ness allows us to jump into something more joyful.

it allows us to think for ourselves rather than like our folks or the world..

Thanks to the ‘wrong’ choices of careers I made, today I have a job I love, a job that not only pays me well but gives me the choice of working when I have to as against working every day as a rule, a job where 100% job satisfaction is the bare minimum & the perks – a life that is aligned to my values, a life that has me spend a lot of time with my son, a life where I love my work, a life where I get to change the world 🙂

If you are willing not to settle for less, please applaud yourself for that choice!!

AND PLEASE DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT!!

For the sake of this world..
