Knowledge that is not put into practice is like food that is not digested. –Sri Sathya Sai Baba
Have you felt the practicality of this sentence in your professional life? Have you noticed how working in a particular role, amassing a lot of knowledge and skill will make your life miserable because in big corporate world, you don’t get to put everything in practice?
I certainly have!
I have noticed that big corporate world does not allow you to experiment too much but wants to make everything process-driven, which is in itself is not a wrong practice. However, it sort of generates an indigestion within your personality. You feel a bit suffocated that you are not able to launch all of your fangs and antennas to grab the frequency of everything that’s out there.
So, what’s the solution?
The solution for this problem is to work for a startup. They offer you full array of responsibilities, skill-testing opportunities and also to achieve results on multiple fronts.
Why you should work for a startup?
Some reasons that should make your decision if you are looking to work for a startup:
- You might be the sole guy to work for a vertical
- You can put into practice everything you know
- You can spare time to learn new things and implement them for the success of the business idea
- You can experiment, innovate and anticipate
- You can bring results by making your knowledge and skill-set work
If I get the chance to work for a startup
I feel that if I ever get a chance to work for a startup in my full capacity, I will be happy to throw away any kind of job that I might be holding or working for. Startups give you a high and you can’t let it skip by any chance!
