"All I need is a job that pays me 50K a month", Krish said.
Krish is worried about his placements, with the market not doing well.
He is putting in more and more, every single day, but to no favourable outcomes.
Me: How have you arrived at this number?
Kr: I think this would suffice.
Me: Suffice what?
Kr: Provide a comfortable life, for family and me.
Me: All you desire is a comfortable life? Your parents went through hardship only for you to desire a comfortable life?
Kr: Is that not what everyone wants?
Me: The question is, what do you want. Let us say you get this job, what next?
Kr: What next? I mean, all my problems get solved.
Me: Sound like you are going to live with this salary forever.
Kr: No, I mean, I would need more.
Me: How much more?
Me: Which was the highest paying job last year?
Kr: 1.5 L a month.
Me: Why are you not aspiring for that?
Me: What did the person who got that job had different?
Krish after some thinking: Nothing.
Me: So why dream small?
Krish is reworking on his career plan.
Small dreams mean smaller actions;
Smaller action lead to little results.
Big dreams mean bigger actions;
Bigger action yield bigger results.
