“Is it too late to completely change my career after 4-5 years of experience?”
As we grow in our careers, we often contemplate this but don’t make the change, anyway.
“I am too old for this.”
“Of course, I cannot do this at such a stage in my life.”
“I don’t think I have the luxury of having options anymore.”
However, is this correct?
Think of it like this:
“If you have Rs. 100 and lose Rs. 10, will you spend the remaining Rs. 90 on finding the lost Rs. 10?”
Most likely, you won’t.
So if you’re going to work for 40 more years, why worry about 4 or 5 years?
I have restarted my life like this multiple times, in almost two decades of my career.
I started off as a designer of training material at age 24.
I was training to be a scientist at 23.
Then became a management consultant at 26.
Then an entrepreneur at 29.
Then an MNC job at 31.
Then a startup again at 35.
Then a content creator at 39.
And a startup again at 42.
These seem like wild decisions.
But all have shaped me into who I have become today.
Your past only shapes your future, does not deny you of it.
