This is something I always knew was going to happen and finally it has. Work has become most part of life these days. The time between Sunday evening to Friday evening just moves by in a jiffy and a week is gone. Weekends seem to go past so fast. I look back and it has been 4 months I have been here and it seems like yesterday. I always wanted to work in this role in sales but little did I realize that the role is all about being the eternal hustler. It is really a reflection of life. Just as in life day in day our we are seeking happiness, similarly in work we chase opportunities. And it is illusive as always. And even if you feel you finally got it the feel good is just temporary adn then again it is back to chasing something else. It took some time but now I feel I have started running on this treadmill and the speed is getting faster. But I also feel that the next few years of my life are the most significant in terms of my career. It is a new start, a new role, challenging but rewarding. So I guess I just haveto keep running and hope it will lead me somewhere. Ahh well we will see.
I am also learning to deal with new paradigms. Trying to imbibe how to get job done by others, how to align misplaced agenda of everyone, how to have a never-say-die attitude and how to always think through a problem as if the buck stops at you. Trust me these are not the things they tell you at a B school (not even a premiere one) and there is only one way to learn - the hard way. When I was doing my MBA, we used to live in a fantasy world when all it took was to write a report about the theoritical situations, problems issues and believe that it is really simple. Actually, there is nothing glamorous. Hard work, determination, adaptability and will to succeed are the only eternal qualities needed on the field.
So here it is another of the non-descript weekends and there is nothing better to do than sit in front of my computer thinking what to do next. There is a report that needs to go Monday morning, there are dishes that need to be washed, clothes that need to be ironed and and empty fridge crying for a refill. So its bye for now and I promise to write an interesting post next time if you do bother to check my blog. :)
