Why I chose to do something where my hard-work would be in public domain?
In January last year (2015) , I cleared the preliminary test of UES (University Entry Scheme) of Indian Army in my college & was called for SSB in Jan, 2016.
In period of these 12 months, I did worked on my communication skills (though not very rigorously) & had acquired a good-level but it was not up-to-the-mark. As a result, I failed miserably in SSB.
Then again, I gave the CDS of Feb, 2016. I could clear the preliminary exam but failed in SSB which was held in June, 2016.
I constantly felt that until & unless you show the results, it does not matter how well your skills or knowledge-level is.
I knew this. I knew this because I had interactions with many people & they rightly said “results matter”. Efforts you put in is not taken into consideration until you succeed?
Hard to engulf but that’s the reality. I had this thing running over my mind over & over again even before I gave the SSB.
So, I came up with the idea of launching a website & a blog. Here, my work (good or bad) would be online & hence in public domain.
♢ The more I write, the more money I make.
♢ The more I take freelance assignments, more money & connections I make.
♢ My level of skills which are getting improved with each passing day can be traced very easily (by checking old & new blogs)
♢ Greater trust & good-will in the market place.
It allows me to be more open to constructive criticisms & thereby giving me a chance to improve upon the short-comings.
