Prakhar selected into Google - Talk with Devansh
Devansh called me, to have casual chit-chat. Our talk was due since last Sunday.
He always has all the updates from our team. He already left Adobe and joined Microsoft. But, he knew about everybody even now. He gave me knews that Prakhar selected into Microsoft and Google and he is joining Google. I was like, WOW.
He was telling me that you should also try as they are hiring at much higher pace and is giving good salary. It was very tempting to listen.
I listened, and told him my view point and my vision of my future.
I told him that I'm not going to change anymore, Read more here.
I was very clear in explaining my perspective and my thoughts. He understood it very clearly, and respected it.
I know, its very tempting to see when everybody around you are going to big companies, and you can also do better. But, I want to take a pause from this rat race.
I'm reading a book: "Psychology of Money", and there I read that we should stay away from social race. And, I know I'm earning decent enough that I do not need to go anywhere else. Work life balance is dawm good here. So, why do I leave? Just for social pressure?
I'm happy for Prakhar. He is a brilliant guy.
I told him, that my long term goal is not this. I even suggested him to meet at regular frequencies to discuss any ideas that we might have, and may be we can make it big. We have decent amount to bootstrap our ideas. He liked the idea. Lets see, how we can materialize it.
