Making right decision at the right time..... many of us might have heard this phrase plenty of time in our lives. But how many of us has made that right decision in our lives which we are proud of anytime ??? And how many of us thought that we made right decision but later realised 'at a wrong time' ???
If i just look back then until my 12th grade, my parents were making all the major decision for me.... no burden on my shoulder... :) wow life was so beautiful at that time!!!!
The first right decision i made was opting for BE instead of Bsc or BCA. For some reason i made up my mind to go for engineering even if i have to stay in hostel...
My second right decision was in selecting engineering college. During my first CET council the options i had was JCE, Hassan engg college(forgot the actual name of the college), PCET Mandya and SIT Tumkur. I opted for SIT though i had no idea about that college.... i selected because of the branch Instrumentation and Electronics engg again i had no idea about the branch but it was considered one among top 5 branches...
My third right decision..... hmmm after my engineering i got campus selected to caritor. I didnt make any decision over there but it happened becoz of my first 2 right decisions.
After that i moved to Cerner.... hmmm before jumping to Cerner, i did attend interviews in SAP and HP. I didnt excel and that was becoz i was destined to Cerner.
I dont regret leaving caritor but on the other hand if i hadn't left caritor, today there was all possibilities of me working at the client site instead of searching for jobs.
Joining Cerner was a joint right decision made by me and the interview panel. I have learnt a lot in that company and i was able to challenge myself to the opportunities which came in my way. I would love to rejoin that company anytime.
I had to leave Cerner because of personal reasons and at that point of time i felt i need a break for sometime and its not a big deal to get jobs in UK. I thought i get to explore other part of the world and also opportunity to work along with them. But what i didnt know was within a few months the whole world will plunge in to global recession. Right decision at WRONG time..... I know there are many like me who decided to take break for sometime but now facing difficulty to get back into their career life. Should we blame ourselves, destiny or people who were responsible for this global recession ???
As the day passes, my frustration is increasing and am right now in a helpless situation. Hence am writing this post here hoping to reduce my anger and frustration towards the current situation.
One of my favorite lecturer in engg Bhanuprashant sir used to say, "When you lose, Don't lose the lesson". Lets not forget the lesson that we learnt during this recession.
