When I was leaving my job at McKinsey after a relatively short stint of 18 months, a classmate remarked that I was being hasty – in the initial few years on any job, one has to pay the dues.
I disagreed – and still do. There are no dues to be paid. We are born free and owe nothing to anyone.
Life is an opportunity to explore, experience, and live up to our potential. There is no obligation to do anything we don’t want to do.
We have the right to live the way we want to live and nobody can take that away.
