In the early hours of this morning, I received a valuable lesson on the importance of failure in life.
A close friend of mine, who had just recently been laid off from his job at Microsoft, shared his struggles with me.
Despite working hard to achieve his dream of landing a job at a top tech company and dedicating over a decade to the organization, he found himself out of a job and struggling to process this unexpected turn of events.
This experience made me realize that it is not the first job or business that is the most important but the second.
Once you have tasted success and then fallen, that is when it hurts the most.
So again, it is not the first job that is difficult, but the first switch is the most challenging.
However, my friend is a talented individual, and I do not doubt that he will eventually find a new job or even start his own business.
The current economic climate is tough, with many people losing their jobs left and right, especially in the tech industry.
COVID-19 has hit the IT sector late but hard, and we are now facing the impact of the financial crisis.
However, it is important to remember that this is not the end. It is just the beginning of a new journey.
To all those who have lost their jobs, do not be disheartened.
It is not your fault; you are still a great engineer who can do great things in the future.
You will do much better in your next job, or you will start your own business.
The future is full of possibilities and opportunities.
The financial crisis is just getting started, and it may worsen, but remember that something better is bound to come your way.
So keep pushing through and never give up on your dreams.
