Pls read THIS post on SLB to understand kya jhool chalu hai

As expected,Deepak made it…So did Jagruti…The following guys did not make it-Rahul Bhat,Sameer,Supriya and above all(heh heh)me!
You could say I am in good company(no pun intended)…
————————————————————-

Along with this post I would also like to share this experience…

Now as most of you would know,Sclumby was a dream company…majorly coz it had an enormous package(7.5 lacs)
When I was at their corporate office,I met a petroleum engineer from MIT pune…He was currently placed in Singapore in some company(whose name I dont remember) This company is Schlumby’s competitor and pays him 20 lac Indian rupees per annum….

He was here at SLB to give an interview.SLB was ready to pay him more than the current co he was in.

Now,MIT is an average college…with average students…Still they managed a salary tht would make grown-up men cry…
He was not very happy though…

“In this industry you get a lot of money,but you dont get time…”

Still,he couldnt let go of the money.After earning about 40 lacs for the last 2 yrs he still yearned for more…

Here he was at SLB,ready to slog…maybe for the last time…or maybe not…

Maybe money is the most important thing life…or maybe not…

    hmmm...........its a tough choice to have to make, and of course where u come from and ur principles make a big difference. one of the people closest to me once said this when i was arguing with them that they r overly money-minded :
    "Money is not everything......but it certainly is SOMETHING"

    I dunno re.... "Something" is pretty vague re...
    How much is something anyways re?
    How much will I give for something?
    I dunno, but have seen something becoming into everything..

    But then I hav had a comfy life, so maybe I m not the best guy to talk bout money...
    I suck when i talk bout stuff this serious, dont i?
    :P

    Money is definitly not everything, however without money you are nothing. With money one can atleast have a choice of availaing most of the things. If money is the most important currency with which peoples success is measured, why not have it more(ofcourse if you can). I am sure you dont get money on trees as yet. It comes only with hard / smart work.

    I dont agree with the first line.. "Without money you are nothing".. Thts the whole point of this post. Money is something, not everything.. The past 9mths I have made a lot of money but I donrt see how it has change me.. The work tht I do has definitely enriched me, but money? I guess money is just the compensation the Company pays for my time...

    I guess money decides how successful you are for people, but in your eyes only the work you do should be the parameter..
