That afternoon, we were waiting in our project guide’s room for my teammate to arrive. He came 5 minutes late as usual but this time he had the weirdest excuse to give. Not so much an excuse, what he said made me forget that he was actually late - “there’s a murdered body in front of the department!”.
Le me dozing off in Intuit office - jobless on the first day - on my comfortable SteelCase chair.
“Hey, Wake up!”
I’m up. It’s my mentor Harsh Vardhan Gupta. He has a serious look on his face, and his phone in his hand.
“The team manager is back from the US. He tried to wake you up, but you wouldn’t respond. He called me.”
This is a beautiful poem I found from the movie Fracture. It’s written by Dr. Seuss. It’s inspiring!
Today is your day,
You’re off to Great Places!
You’re off and away!
You have brains in your head.
You have feet in your shoes.
You can steer yourself
any direction you choose.
You’re on your own. And you know what you know.
And YOU are the guy who’ll decide where to go.
