I am a 23 year old engineer turned product designer, which opens up possibilities for a lot of hot jobs in tech today. I’ve previously worked at Google, Zomato and a few hot startups.
Six months ago I quit my comfortable job to pursue something I wasn’t sure of. Here’s the truth why anyone quits their job: Asymmetric goals of the company and the individual.
I wanted to start a business. I had a few ideas I wanted to work on. I felt that there is never going to be a perfect time. Earlier I jump out, the better.
Time after time when things don’t work out, it creates insecurities. I’ve created a list of few and pushing them out for no real reason. Here we go.
“Maybe get another job?”
It’s the easiest resort. Going back in the system where every last day of the month you see your bank account bump up. A little by little. Masking the layer of security in life.
A professional is a commodity. And salary is the price that market of defines based on demand and supply. It’s not easy to not take the offers of exciting companies. But it’s the weight of disappointment of not living up to the potential.
