We keep hearing about lay-offs in top corporate in recent times. We are to some extent okay to read about it as news, but if it hits us at an individual level, the immediate response is to find solutions and take quick actions. So how to overcome a situation like that, do you wonder? I would like to share my story it might be helpful.   Although I did not become a victim to recession, I am a victim of myself, ” I cannot enjoy the same job for long years”. (My LinkedIn profile is the proof 🙂 – I call it ‘Frequent self-recession”)   Every time when I reach tipping point of frustration or unhappiness, one simple step has helped me so far which is – Taking a ‘U Turn’ and reflecting on “what did I enjoy and what will make me happy“.

I request all of you to share thoughts and action so that we add value to our readers who are currently reading this blog. Simple act of sharing is caring 🙂   Before starting the […]
