damage control

I did not like the last post but the comments made me look at the positive side of it. I wanted to delete some part but now, I won’t. I have started the damage control however. Read the book," Who will cry when you die? - Life lessons from the monk who sold his Ferrari " by, Robin. K. Sharma.

It’s about changing the stumbling blocks in life into stepping-stones and past mistakes to lessons in wisdom.
I read it loud to myself. It helped me concentrate and reflect on each word. It helped me modulate my voice.
If I take up this job of a consultant, I need a good voice so that people don’t bang the phone as I head hunt. I need all the positive energy to keep myself motivated and follow-up with clients and candidates. I don’t know if I can but now, I would like to try.

Wasting 3–6 months of my career is ok, if it’s going to give me a lifetime of satisfaction. God knows where my blogging activities would stand in the gist of all these activities. There should be someway of multi-tasking.
My friends asked me what I was reading so loud and serious? Would have done wonders had I concentrated so much on studies. Sigh! But then, there is usually only one topper in the class and so and so forth. Like the bollywood actors say, "I never believed in the number game" :-) ok, there’s a thrill in topping. There’s a thrill in excelling and life’s game is still on…

Arunima, I will try to get hold of this book. If you are reading it loudly then its worth having in my collection. Not only in my collection to show off, but worth reading.

first of all thanks for your words of encouragement :-)) i really appreciate that. and as for the career move, i think you should always trust your gut instinct - the only person who really matters in your life is you, make that person happy first! besides, i think women's sixth sense is amazingly powerful, i would trust it too!! good luck!!

Reshma, the color is inspired by you. I was thinking black n white before:-)

Arunima said...

welcome to Bangalore Arvind. Thanks Manus, I'll try my best.

Alka, it's really worth it.

Saurabh, thanks to you too. I also feel this is the time to take risk.

Don't be surprised if I come and announce one fine day that I am jobless.

Well, may be its just me, but what I think is one never learns much from good experiences in life. It is always the sad/bad experiences which give a truck load of experience points.
