Current Role And Overcoming Challenges:
I'm working as a Director for an IT MNC providing Intelligent Automation Solutions for clients globally. Just like most IT Professionals, my time is spent in meetings, emails, documentation and calls with very less personal time left.
Travelling To You:
Travelling is therapeutic for me. It’s a journey to rediscover myself. I take short breaks at least once a month outside the city and once a year overseas. I like travelling to unexplored places and experience the local culture.
Balancing Your Passion With Work:
I'm generally passionate about living life to the fullest and making every moment memorable. I do this by indulging in various activities like travelling, photography, music and adventure sports. I try prioritizing my activities and allocating time accordingly. During office time its all about work with no distractions and I avoid taking work at home as much as possible. I'm a bit of an old-fashioned guy, prefer real conversations with people and spend less time on the phone or social media.
Your Bucket List:
It has to be New Zealand. I like it for its diverse and pristine nature, sublime landscape, marine reserves, wildlife and adventure. A dreamland for a photographer and an adventure junkie like me! :)
Advice To Others Who Are Looking To Follow Their Passion But Are Not Able To Find That Balance:
Identify what makes you happy. Prioritize your time and allocate time for your passions. Set goals and achieve them. Unplug from technology and learn to say no. Don't wait for the right moment/opportunity, live today!
