I am like Chandler from friends

Lenovo weak
Aug 30 19 Comments

I have got a decent tech job which keeps me busy and pays well, but I am at that stage of life where I find a constant desire of doing something. Just something..not sure what it is that I really want to do, but just something exciting and worth my time.

I am feeling like Chandler from the series “friends” where everybody around him loves their jobs but he doesn’t. Just like him I thought I would be doing something cool..something exciting in life and not just a 9-5 job.

It burns my heart when I see young people doing amazing things in life. Be it youtubers or people with startups. What the heck am I doing with my life? I deeply feel that I can really do something better..but what? I am still trying to figure that out.

To be honest I am bored of an absolute tech job. I am looking for a combination of tech and marketing or sales, where I could use my tech skills as well as represent my company or team. I am a fun person with good communication skills (stating these so that may be you guys can suggest professions accordingly?)

Open to non-tech professions as well.

I also like to work on different projects rather than spending multiple years doing same thing.

Thanks!

      OP there's always ppl commenting shit like this in every post. I too don't see the point since calling out the ethnicity of a person doesn't add anything to the discussion anyway.

      Calling out other Indians = must be Indian themselves with extremely obsure Indian-only references

      “I have got” is extremely obscure?

      Because I’m sure you’re not referring to that one American show that ran for 10 seasons as obscure.

      I feel the same. I just try to stay focus and leetcode but mainly because 40% I like to code the rest is because it pays well, stable, respectable and also it feels good to build or figure something out. But I spend most of my time studying so I could codebetter meanwhile I see everyone having so much fun on social media. You’re not alone. My plan to fight this is to get one more big pay bump to another company. Have good wlb so I am free to do whatever I feel like. What you like will keep changing. One day you wanna get into basketball next year you wanna do something else. IMO get high tc that gives you free time to do other things and you’ll be happier. Either way good luck to you brotha

    Maybe try to find joy in something non-career related? I am not saying you can't be happy with a job but trying to fulfill yourself with just your career is a difficult and dangerous game. Diversify your source of joy!
