Hey what’s up ? What’s you doing ? Are you enjoying doing it or just carry it like boredom ? Each of us are working and either we enjoy our work or take it as task just to complete lifecycle .
I always ask questions to myself like Is it the same work I want do ? If I’m enjoying my work ?
If I’m getting back the same results as I assumed ? My answer to the questions is Yes.
Yes I love my work , this happens long time back when I was a kid , day dreaming about to be a doctor. Everyone around me try to brain wash of my parents , she’s is a girl , why she needs to be highly educated? Some says ” your are spending so much money on your girls education, will you able to get the same level educated groom ? ” Some says ” this much money can complete her marriage affairs “
One day my parents called me up & ask me ” choose one marriage or education ” I straight forward said ” I want to add Doctor as a prefix to my name , I would be glad if you spend money on my education that you saves for my marriage ”
Time passes on . My parents stands by my back & support me through my journey of becoming a doctor.
After becoming a doctor life is also not so easy , I have to choose my work path . Being a Gynaecologist we have to perform OPD’s , IPD’s , ND & D&C’s ( abortion ) . From the very first time I decided to not to do abortion as well as commission on Lab test , A big No for me !!!
My parents & colleagues said ” you will not be successful & in demand if you don’t perform it ”
I said ” My self esteem , values & Education is not for Sale , I will not do it . I’ll not follow the crowd, rather walk alone “
Yes , my Work is at risk , but Guys always remember
If your work is at risk means your life is beautiful
I know that I will not be on hotlist of Doctors, I will not earn that much , but how can I eat , drink & sleep peacefully by performing such act . Many patients comes to me asking for Sex determination of foetus, I said no . I always joined a job on my conditions, clearly telling them I will not do abortions until unless its patients medical needs .
Yes I love my work , do it on my conditions , following all the rules & values that I have set for it . This give me mental peace & satisfaction. And I’m happy the day I’ll die I will have no regrets from my life & my work .
That’s my story of work . I evaluate every bit of it !!! What’s your work story , did you evaluate it or not ? Hang on , Take a deep breath and evaluate your life , your work & its results. Check out the questionnaire below & make your work life comfortable.

How to take the control of your work ?
Different people different prospective . I know it’s not easy to switch to our dream work . But its also not impossible. We can’t change it 100% due to society restrictions but we can bring revolution in a part of it . Keep this always in mind . Don’t ever compromise for your values . Once you say no to compromise, your work will be at risk . But as I said earlier If your work is at risk means your life is beautiful . And also After death it’s only our deed that will be carry forward and not anything else .
My dad always said
गिरते हैं शाह सवार ही मैदान ए जांग में
वो तुफल क्या गिरे जो घुटनों के बल चलें
