WHY I QUIT MY FULL TIME JOB?

20th December, 2019


Last year Today, I quit my full time job at Phanta.


We all have reasons and I had mine.

But it was not what many assume.


My term at Phanta was probably the best time spent with the best people.


I went to a work place I called my second home, I had a pay scale that was pretty competitive, I had colleagues who were some of the best people I had met and a boss who I admired and respected deeply!


But despite all this I was not happy. I was not a happy mother or wife. And this affected my health and home terribly.


Every day I questioned myself what it is that I wanted to do to bring a spark of joy in my life.


For the first time I strongly felt the value of TIME over money.


No one understood this. They thought I was crazy to think about quitting a full time job that paid well.


One day Mark (my ex-boss) called me to his office as I was getting ready for a standup meeting because he noticed I was not okay.


I remember that day very well for two reasons:


1. I cried like never before. He watched patiently until I cried a little more. He did not stop me and let me cry until I felt okay.


2. He asked me, “What’s the ONE thing that will bring you joy right now?”

And I answered, “FITNESS”.


No, I did not quit my job that day. But I came out of his office, a BRAVE SOUL. 💫


I resigned 4 months later. This was probably the biggest SOLO decision I made in my life. It was HARD.


What will people say?

Well, for the first time it did not matter to me.

I was HAPPY.


And Naushfit was born.

A decade long passion for fitness finally turned into reality! ❤


I know I have a LONG way to go. And no matter how slow the climb is, I know it's worth it cos I am in love with this journey! 🥰


Remember - Time Will Pass.


You can either stare at the clock, watching the seconds tick away. Or take responsibility of doing something extraordinary with the time you have left.


Take a chance, believe in your capabilities and Trust Allah.


TIME IS TOO PRECIOUS. Use wisely.

Do meaningful work, money will follow.
