Thrilled but with a pinch of fear !
This is the first time when from coming monday I will have no office to go to. I will not drive through the busy inner ring road of Domlur (Bangalore) to reach office in Koramangla, I will be at home for few days!
There is a certain amount of fear when you leave something so set for unknown. Unknown where you for sure don't know what would be coming to you next. The moment one face something unknown, fear starts coming in, fear that it will disrupt your life, fear that it might derail all the plans you have. But this fear is more of a guiding nature and satisfying because everyday it will give you a chance to face it. It will be worth reflecting when was the last time you faced such a fear !
Really this is what I am feeling after leaving my full time job at ThoughtWorks.
I know we can debate on the purpose of life and how you take life as ! But somewhere I feel the very purpose of life is to explore things around you, uncover new ways, uncover new paths without any fear and to enrich something called "life". That's precisely is life ! And somewhere I feel I am all set to explore this new phase in life, the phase to face this uncertainty !
I am working on setting up my own start up with couple of real talented friends whom I met while serving my tenure in ThoughtWorks !
Will keep you posted on why and what and how ... :-)
