Working from home?

Posted by AtPeace on April 22, 2006

Having to support client testing for a couple of weeks (ending yesterday), I was to work in some weird timings – 4:30 PM to 12:30 AM. Truly speaking, this suits me quite well, for a host of reasons – I don’t have to kill myself by trying to get up at 7, I don’t have to try to go to work early, I don’t have to travel indefinitely to reach office… and so on. But never in my dreams did I think working from home would be so challenging.

Career… and… life…

Posted by AtPeace on April 1, 2006

Didn’t want to write a post on this, but this thought has been irking me at regular intervals over the past few days, that I feel it is much better to simply write it down and forget it…

Anyway, this is what triggered the stream of thoughts…

While commenting on the post of a fellow blogger, another blogger says “Career is life”. I found it so ridiculous that I actually laughed aloud. But the amusement was instantly replaced by sadness, at the thought of some people’s priorities… “Career is life”. Nice. So, what would family and friends be? What about dreams, desires, aspirations and goals a person might have…? What about interests and hobbies? Love might, of course, be a side issue. Happiness, I assume, is a non-issue. These concepts probably don’t even exist (or maybe don’t matter) in their world. *sigh*

Get me straight, I have nothing against hard-working people. I work hard, too. But beneath all that hard work, there’s love for what I do. And that’s what drives me. I hope people who kill themselves for their career know what they’re doing.

My only wish is that people stop occasionally, to take a deep breath and reassess their priorities… think about what they truly want in life and if they’re going the right way about doing it.
