Work - O - Holic

Its 2 a.m, and here I am blogging after ages Currently at Work Place working with team. . Never ever thought I would be sacrificing my Beauty Sleep just to meet the deadlines.

Work for me had always been 10-6 job for the last 3 years. Over the few months, I realized it can be more than that, it is more than just your salary being credited to your account on 1st of every month. I always referred to people as Workaholic when they never answered calls during office hours or did answer calls at work post 7 pm.

Yes, they always say, Love your Job, not the company, You never know when the company might stop loving you. Have never been able to follow the same, I fall in love with the company and the people in the company. For a change I have realized what Loving your job means. Its the feeling when you do not crib when
1) You have to reply to mails from 6 am to Mid Night
2) You can never take Ad Hoc leave
3) You never realize when the clock strikes 8 pm everyday while you sit and stare at system analyzing numbers
4)Your Monday dreams are dedicated to your Boss & deadlines
5) Your colleagues's CTC doesn't disturb you &
6) You still smile when someone asks you about your job irrespective of the above points.

Currently I am going through the above phase and happy to be in. Its a way out to know yourself better among worldly pleasures and gains. Its during these times when you indulge in what you love and be happy about introspection.

Its not always about the package, the position, the Grade, its just about loving what you do and being paid for the same!

Nope, In-spite of this I do not call myself Workaholic..I am just someone who still looks forward for the Drunk weekends, laughter with Family, Movie to gossip about on Fridays but also someone who do not complain about Monday blues!

What we really want to do is what we are really meant to do. When we do what we are meant to do, money comes to us, doors open for us, we feel useful, and the work we do feels like play to us.
