Mid life crisis or what!

Can you believe dear blog, first post of the year and I am going to write about experiencing mid-life crisis cum career issues! It is slightly early, I suppose for having such ideas, but then can I help it! Not really, so I will rant till my heart's content. As you know I love my job, on most days that is and today was not one of those love-hate days, it was in fact a normal, unassuming kind of a day, nothing which can have an impact positively or negatively but still I was getting these weird, absolutely non-practical kind of ideas. Hence, I thought, what can be a better idea than typing it down, to create a day-memory just in case I get serious about changing my career some day.

You know what my problem is, I am not satisfied with the ordinary, I like everything with a little more. Like these days I am feeling, I am not doing that little more outside of work and hence the need to look at alternate career choices. While discussing and thinking about a range of career options from being a pilot to being a failed software engineer, I realised I am not as smart as I think I am. Infact, there is hardly any real job that I can do, except what I am currently doing. But you know, there are a lot of non-real jobs, the jobs that don't pay for the lifestyle, that I may really want to do some day. Like teaching, teaching children who don't have access to good quality education, like being a project manager for health and sanitation somewhere in the rural part of the country, like starting an enterprise to encourage the small-scale artisans somewhere in interior Rajasthan. I mean, there are real people who do these non-real jobs right. Only, if I had some encouragement, a lot of courage and no desire for this big bad city life that I almost love.

Oh dear God, why can't I have it all :)

At some point of time, we all go through similar thoughts. I think these emerge from the cyclic repetitive stuff we do every single day- waking up),household chores, rushing to office blah blah blah! The best way to deal with this is taking little unplanned detours on the way which could be anything you decide-visiting an old age home, feeding a beggar, teach a neighbourhood kid on a Sunday morning or whatever. Break the rut of everyday routine.

Being an HR person,would you be interested in joining a Foundation dedicated to finding placements for handicapped persons of which I am an active member.I wish if you could visit a state of the art school for deaf and dumb at Bhivandi with which we are associated.Our one student recently won scholarship to France for further training in advanced photography.(it is a free residential boarding school)
You could join in advisory capacity.There are several working professionals from corporates in a team of 35 persons all over India.
