  • About Me My Education My Job Career Writer Beyond Career My Values My Job Philosophy Contact MeMy Job Philosophy• Find a job you love and you’ll never have to work a day in your life.• Work is either fun or drudgery. It depends on your attitude. I like fun.• Every job is a self-portrait of the person who did it. Autograph your work with excellence.• Value people irrespective of the position they hold and keep learning constantly.• Quit your job when you feel you don’t have anything more to learn from your employer.• Love your job but never fall in love with your company because you never know when your company stops loving you.• Strong work-life balance going by the ‘work hard, play hard’ philosophy since I know that there is a world beyond my workplace and pursue hobbies which I am passionate about.
