Many people ask me the reason behind my sabbatical – why am I taking this six-month unpaid leave.
I actually planned to either quit my job or take a long unpaid leave since a year ago. The trigger point was my last year’s technical assessment – that I obviously didn’t do well. First of all, I hate to blame the assessment style or the system. Here, I will just admit myself. It is my own weakness and ignorance towards the list of things that I need to know within and around my job scope.
Relationship with cell phones
In the world without boundary, our relationship with the cell phones is a major key factor affecting our productivity.
I may have quoted this here before, but it’s right on again with the context of this post.
The things you own end up owning you. It’s only after you lose everything that you’re free to do anything. (Chuck Palahniuk, Fight Club)
Our possessions are supposed to make our life easier. However, there are certain things that we own and depending on our relationship with them, divert us from doing tasks we are supposed to do.
The place I used to work at, we update our progress by Thursday weekly so the team leader could present it on Friday. Then, the boss will further present the team to the bigger boss next Monday, and so on and so forth – you know the drill.
It’s my third week
working resting at home. I mostly showered once every two days, prepared/ate whatever instant and fast food available in the fridge, drank a lot of coffee to stay awake not to write but binge-watch Netflix (which I later uninstalled from my phone)
PSA: If anyone ever offers or talks you into Netflix, by any means run as far as you can, no joke!
