People are smart and have ideas, work hard and full of enthusiasm. Outside of work, they like to develop some apps by themselves. After leaving Baidu, they went to a startup company. The second encounter was when he traveled to New Zealand in 2017. He said that he had been driving in New Zealand for 20 days. There was no plan for this trip, and he did not want to stay and return to China.
I asked how to ask for leave, he said: resigned. It was only later that I learned that the large start-up company he experienced cashed out a huge sum of money after going public, bought a small courtyard in Yunnan, and left Beijing with his wife.
Now, his circle of friends is full of aerial photography of drones and the scenery of self-driving tours around the world.
The school recruited to join Baidu, and rose to the Latest Mailing Database highest level of design at a rocket-like speed in 4 years; worked as a lecturer and host in Ixdc for 3 consecutive years, published books, bloggers, lecturers at Mantou Business School, etc. She has many titles, is a typical slash youth, and a perpetually energetic strong woman.
When she reached the high point of Baidu's career, she chose to leave. We didn't understand it at the time and asked her why she didn't stay here at the peak?
She replied: Always stay out of your comfort zone, which translates to: often leave the comfort zone in order to maximize your value.
When I saw her recently, she was wearing high heels and gave an elegant presentation on entrepreneurship. High-spirited, passionate, and not at all pregnant.
The experience of these two friends is related to the career planning of the Internet people we are going to talk about below .
time to change jobs
Choice is greater than hard work. Every choice in life (including school choice, employment, and marriage) will determine and change your future life direction.
There is a term in economics called "opportunity cost" , which refers to the opportunity that an enterprise gives up in order to engage in one business activity for another business activity. The same is true for employment. When you choose a job, you also give up the right to choose multiple other jobs.
Based on this, changing jobs requires careful consideration .
Dad Ma once said:
"Leaving is either money being wronged or people being wronged."
But I think this is only a part. With the continuous improvement of the individual's ability to think independently, more dimensions need to be considered when changing jobs:
1. When you lack enthusiasm for the job at hand
Passion for work is a person 's intrinsic driving force in the workplace.
Just like the friends A and B described above, they can always be infected by their state whenever they see them. Have you ever found that there are always influential and infectious people in the team, working with them, you will subtly become more positive?
Conversely, when one has no passion, one tends to miss the past…
I miss working overtime until 12 o'clock at night because of a detail when I first joined the company, and it's like having a chicken blood! I miss seeing user comments about new features on various feedback platforms after going online, jumping happily~
In the past, you cared about every compliment and spit from every user, and the data fluctuation of every function; even treated the products made from 0 as your own children: when other roles proposed product value > user experience value When it comes to function, it will try to argue and find a more comfortable landing method.
At that time, you were like a raging fire that could see clearly in front of you and illuminate your colleagues around you. But when experience, time, timing, etc. led to the fire going out, the whole world went dark.
So, when enthusiasm fades, don't waste your time and life, you can change to a field of interest and rekindle the fire in your heart!
2. When you're deep in your comfort zone
Many people, after working for a few years, can easily achieve their goals through intuition and experience when facing the task at hand ; the daily work becomes repetitive and unchallenging, and at this time it is necessary to pay attention that you have entered your comfort zone.
Three states are popularized here, namely: comfort zone, learning zone and anxiety zone .
Comfort zone: mastering skills and immersing yourself in a state of self-enjoyment;
Learning area: It is the best state, in the case of abundant knowledge in the field, dabbling in a small number of unknown fields, supplementing shortcomings through learning, and constantly expanding the state of the ability circle;
Anxiety Zone: It is a state of being anxious, panicked, and worried in the face of knowledge in an unknown field, and at the same time unable to progress.
Among the three states, the learning area is the best state, and being too anxious or too leisurely will have an impact on the future development of the career.
