10 Years Window

The other day I was talking to a friend of mine not to close but a friend of mine and since I’m worried about my future, I asked him something, “Dude, what sort of person do you want to be after 5 years from now?” He replied, “I’ve got a decent job. I’ll keep working for that corporation and it’s pretty safe. You know like, no risks, on-time payment, privileges, job security…” I said to myself, “Damn! I’ve not taken any job interview, haven’t seen even a single interview question, I don’t even know how an interview cell looks like and here I’m trying to figure out how to help others, huh?”

There are moments come in your life when you need to be alone and just have to focus on yourself. You need to realize what you’ve done so far and what you really need to do. But still, I try to find fun every time. Whether I’m at the gymnasium or working on my ongoing (turtle pace) projects, I always make jokes about my situation and sometimes about others (I’m sorry). I get angry sometimes along the way and become a serious guy sometimes (1/10).

I know there are people like me who are exactly in the situation which I’m in. If you are a student, going to graduate this year like me (if everything goes well) and haven’t figured out what you really need to do then I suggest you complete all of your pending tasks. Could be a project or any other activities. Because once you complete those you will have a feeling of accomplishment and you are ready to take more challenges. And if you have already completed, talk to people. Just talk to people. Especially old ones. Start reading other people. It will definitely help you. I did. I do. And I love it.

(I’m angry now…)

I spent a huge amount of time in the education system. And the thing is, it has never taught me how to use the money. It teaches how to make money but never teaches you how to use it. That’s why most of us seek jobs where they are highly paid irrespective of the kind. F***ing money-seekers! Go out and just look at people who are working for others with no money. Those people who fight against the society to change millions of lives. Those don’t want money. Those want to help. And you dumb sick, want a secure job? I don’t want to talk about it now.

So, those who are like me, focus on this 10 years window of your life. Don’t wish for a ‘fat whip’ or ‘fast bucks’. Just work. Just do what you love. Just close your eyes for 10 years and work. Yes, you are going to regret many things. Things which you sacrificed but it will be worth in the end. Your future will look a lot awesome when you realize that you need to focus on your shit.

Humans are tend to listen to other humans who have achieved great things. Poor humans! So, listen to this.

Please, I request you. Please, understand your motives. Don’t give a shit about his/her skills. Because Bruce Lee once said,

I’m not afraid of the man who knows 10,000 kicks and has practiced them once. I am afraid of the man who knows one kick and has practiced it 10,000 times!


Now go out and seek great ideas. Even I need to find something.
