What is happening around You?
People around you are living the life you dream of, they are taking the exotic vacations, traveling to places and locations seen only in the wallpaper of your office laptop ( in case marketing or HR has still not realized to use it as an advertising tool and hijacked it through IT), your friends now have bought luxury property in the happening city of the country, they are with the girl/guy of their dreams, basically everyone around you, except you is better off.
So how really was the last year?
You spent the entire last year working, arriving on time to office, putting your best foot forward, accepting everything your boss told you, ensured he looked good in front of his boss, you extended your weekly 45 Hour week job ( 9X5) to 55 Hour week Job; stayed over ( yes! you are the most hardworking individual ) only to learn that the medal of this hard work is an A grade ( sometimes not even that ) and the difference between the A grader and the C grader is mere 3%. Now look at that as a calculation. Consider your package as 10lacs/yr. and you are an A grader, so you got 12% increment in the salary ( which is 1.2 lacs per annum increase) while the C Grader got a 9% ( 90 thousand per annum) so the basic difference you calculate is 30k for one year ( am not calculating the taxes and other major component of your salary which you don’t understand).
But to be fair, that’s a wrong comparison. You should compare yourself with your own self. So lets look at it this way. 10 Hrs extra every week ( 55 hrs vs 45 hrs we discussed at top) for 52 weeks makes it 520 hours extra.
This 520 Hours extra=30k Rs.
Your 520 Hours for a 30 k. Hows that for a mathematical comparison. ( reiterating that this comes from the belief that comparing yourself with others is a sad way to life so we compare our hours with our self as benchmark). Let’s not get into the details of how this meager 30 k leaves you more restless, makes you forget family, friends and your personal goals and oh yes, you just happened to break your phone last month while driving hurriedly to office and you had to ( not wished to or planned to) buy a 40k phone ( yep you got to keep up the battle of first there).
3 Key points to realize before it gets too late
1. Security is dead:
All those house, investment schemes, Retirement plan stuff you have taken ( if not then don’t) will not suffice once you reach at that stage. Just to a plain calculation of inflation and you will understand the mathematics. So you bought 3 houses in the capital of your country, and you believe that will be enough for you. Take a Bow.
2. No Full Time Workers:
There is no single sector in the economy which is going for 100% full time workers. Everyone is looking for Contract employees. We are moving towards a society without employees.
3. Golden Watch & your retirement Plans
You are the biggest fool if you believe that they ( companies) will make you work for 30 years, then pay you hefty amount as you retire, organize a farewell party, everyone will look keenly at you what words of wisdom you have to say, they will give you a shawl and a golden watch and your pension ( doesn’t exist now in most corporates) will be sufficient enough to pay all your debts and bills and health policies. This is past and the sooner you accept it the better your chances of a smiling life because you will understand it is important to act.
What you can do in this Changing scenario?
First and foremost, put yourself in solitude and believe in what is written above. Go through it once again and connect the dots of your life and it wont take much for you to realize how true it is. Second, don’t worry but be warned and take action, because if you don’t no one help. Don’t believe in the lie that one day, someone- some random organization, head, business will come and choose you and say, here, you are our superman, save us. It’s not going to happen in this life for sure. Not with you anyway. You have to begin to find that thing which makes you joyful, the art which you can share with the world.
The Other 2 Option
Stay there if You are in a job which makes you happier, a boss who is always going to make you look good, who helps you in every part of life, who is dedicated and will go extra lengths just to ensure you are giving your best.
Stay in a Job you hate, with a boss who is trying his best to keep you down ( don’t worry he doesn’t hate you, but he has no choice, even his boss is doing the same to him and it’s nothing but a food chain) and the paychecks which are going to come once in a year, and are insufficient to fulfill all your needs, forget about the dreams.
The Bottom Line: Go for your dreams, because this is the time of your life, and you and you alone can do something about it. Accepting this will not only change you, but will change your world forever. As the title says: Your world is changing: Are you?
What I don’t want you to do?
Don’t leave your job, We all have our bills to pay, our EMI’s and festivals. Not necessarily be an entrepreneur and start a business, not everyone can do that ( everyone can but not everyone believes in it).
Develop your own stream of things and work which are not related to your current skill sets. If you are a Banker, and have interest in cooking, how about giving 5 hours a week to being the chef at a star hotel. ( Don’t give back the bullshit I don’t know anyone who can help me, remember, no one is going to ever come and pick you, go figure out a way and yes, you can always be a helping hand). If you are a Marketeer, and have interest in painting, why not give 5 hours to assist a master painter and develop your skills on that. This won’t start paying you right away, at times it will take years ( and you thought months) but if you persist you will for sure reach a tipping point, cross the critical mass required to pass the gravitational pull. Remember your 520 Hours, that extra 30k or a more richer life ( don’t worry, money will follow trust the masters of the world on that).
