IT Speak - Had a break?

*non-ITians excuse
If I say ‘IT is growing everyday’, nothing new in it. But if I ask ‘where do you stand in the growth?’ are you going to take a thought about it?

If you relax for sometime closing your eyes; by the time you open your eyes the ‘world’ would have gone far away from you. The only possible way you could reach the ‘world’ would be to double your speed. ‘The rabbit and tortoise’ concept is not going to work out here. And I bet if you are not physically and mentally prepared to double your speed; then you are a loser!

Taking a long break from work, especially during your ‘crucial growth period’ is like inviting trouble with a ‘welcome drink’. Certain ‘breaks’ are unavoidable. But again be prepared to double your speed. Don’t imagine yourself as a tortoise, as the rabbits here are not fools to give you way.

The ingredients to reach the ‘world’ (that is to double your speed are); a whole you, with no worries, physically fit, mentally prepared, a good aim at the target, and of course a smile on your face(the last one is my personal suggestion everywhere)! If you feel you have them all then take the plunge – the second time! Else wait!

I came to Ur blog through sreeni's blog.
Nice thought, I agree to your point of being fit mentally and physically, but do U think its gud to run all the time ?? if I run all the time will not burnout ?? I am not denying one should not be fit

Hannibal,

I agree with what you said. its hard to keep running all the time. Of course, we need some break or can we put it as a 'Change' or refreshment in between work (like holiday trips, or an outing or a small break for a week).....

But if you had noticed my talk here is about a long(say 1 or more months) break. After which you get back to work and how would you feel? How would you start? Dont you feel you have to double your speed then?

I don't think one month is a long break, but thats just my view :)
from your earlier posts I could figure out you did had time to know abt things other than work too,
Dou you think work alone is life ??
