The Need For Change

I went to work today, and did nothing.

Well, I should rephrase. I did do something, it just felt like nothing. The work that needed to be finished was done in the first hour, and I had 7 more to go. So what do I do? I just sat there, with nobody but me and my office manager, browsing the internet. I visited one of my favorite blogs, Under30CEO, browsing through some interesting posts to try and kill time. Along the way I came across an article from Arman Assadi, a former Google employee turned Solopreneur. I visited his blog and read at least a dozen (maybe 2) of his articles, and his message made me sit at my desk and really put my current situation into perspective.

I know that I’m currently on the right track as to where I want to be in life, but looking at my surroundings and reading his posts reminded me that I’m still not there yet. I don’t want to have to keep wearing uncomfortable dress clothes, waking up a 6 to get ready to be at work by 8:30 and do work for someone else that even though it may be important to them, was not important and meaningful to me. I do like my job and the people in it, but as I keep saying, I have too much to contribute to the world to be held down in one spot. I want for my work to mean something, for my vision to be presented and admired, to inspire and teach others, and I can’t do that working for someone else and paying attention to the non-believers. There is a need for change, and that change will come soon. I’ve been working towards this change for a year now, narrowing down my focus, and making myself prepared for what I plan to accomplish. My change will come.

Here are the links to Under30CEO and Arman Assadi’s blog, Why I Left Google if you want to give them a look.

  1. It’s great that you crave to do more meaningful work, not just for other but for yourself. That’s the entrepreneurial mind. I feel the same way. Just keep doing what you’re doing, reading and getting inspired/motivated will push you to take the plunge and start your own business adventures! 😉
