Love Your Job, Not the Company

LOVE YOUR JOB, BUT NEVER FALL IN LOVE WITH YOUR COMPANY BECAUSE YOU NEVER KNOW WHEN COMPANY STOPS LOVING YOU - Narayana Murthy this time of recession and economic crisis, when premier companies are laying off their employees, I can feel the gravity of this saying by Narayana Murthy - Infosys founder and
one of the top 50 influential persons of Asia. But, few people can be so practical in nature to follow the saying in one's professional and personal life. After spending more than 10 hrs. of the day, 5 days a week (6 or sometimes 7 days for people like me), one is bound to fall in love with the workplace or the company. For people like me, who have very few personal life except for writing blogs, listening music, watching movies, reading books and cooking food, workplace becomes such a comfort zone that you actually end up spending a lot of your time in it. And, finally one day due to some fucking economic crisis, the employer is subjected to cost cutting and you get laid off. You are asked to leave the place in a nick of time where you had spent months and years of your life. As though, a powerful blast has destroyed everthing in just a fraction of time. The person on whom such things happen can only feel the pain and trauma. Although, I am safe till now, I can't say when my time will come. Its really tragic to see colleagues leaving under such circumstances. People with whom you had lunches, shared jokes, helped each other in professional matters or sometimes even personally; you lose them just instantly. Its a real shitty feeling.
