“Oh No! Another working weekend”
This is one thought which usually never bother me… Being a workaholic… I love working… But, I guess after 20 days of work without a single break, I now understand my mom’s words- “Beta, rest bhi toh zaroori hai”… when the tiredness is ruling all over me…
I so wish companies should understand this… On the other hand I feel, Indian companies & Indian people will never understand the concept of ‘rejuvenation’… Where people are normal human bodies that needs rest physically as well as mentally…
Looking back, professionally,
I was picked from campus by my first organization, where I used to work 365 days round the clock…. But, then, I had flexibility of taking rest…. My boss was considerate enough to give me that liberty of taking a break… Still, life was tough... without Saturdays off and unofficially working Sundays…. My social life was limited only inside office…I still loved it...
My second job was a bit stable…. Fix 6 days working, sometimes Sundays too… very fix timings…. But nightmares should not be recalled… :P
Coming on to my present job… I like the place where I work… I like my work… I like the culture… though there are always certain positives and negatives about every place…. But *touchwood* it’s more of positives there… The only thing I hate the most is working weekends without any comp off….
I dunno why companies don’t understand making employees work for 2 weeks without a break will never improve their business or performance instead it will further result in slow and poor results with employee dissatisfaction and higher attrition rate… A happy employee can work more efficiently, and one day off in a week is everyone's right..
I m so tired… given a day off, I’ll only sleep for 20-25 hours… My mind is tired… My routine is all disturbed... My personal tasks which I try to finish after office are still half pending… My family needs my time, every second day my mom or my bhai asks “Tu kab free hogi, kab we can go for this or that” :-(…. I haven’t met my friends from long time, usually when they ask “Are you free on sat/sun”…. My reply is “Event hai” … And for God, you know better... what not….
I need sleep... I never thought I'll say it so publicly but yes, I need SLEEP! I need REJUVENATION, a short break.. A small escape to an isolated place... :-(
Dear God, lets catch up soon someday... After office of course! Love you.. ;-)
