Evolve Discovery 2010 - 2013

This month, I ended my journey with Evolve Discovery. I started working as the Associate Director of Marketing in 2010, and left as the Director of Corporate Development in 2013. It has been an amazing experience. I have been very fortunate to be part of the Evolve Discovery team and will miss it very much!

My glassdoor review of Evolve Discovery (pending post):

Evolve Discovery is great company to work for. I worked there for 3 years, and it has been a very pleasant experience. When I first started, I was just responsible for managing the marketing department, but was quickly immersed into the culture and given the opportunity to work directly with executives on global business needs and requirements.   Even though it is an intense environment, I see myself and lot of other people thrive in it. There is very close knit culture amongst people. 

When I started, there were only less than 50 people. The Evolve team is now 150+ strong in about 3 years.  The team is composed of a lot of diffe…

Quotes / Saying - Comforting

Again, as I am going through the anxiety of this thing I really want, I keep reminding myself of all the quotes, sayings, etc. I have learned to keep myself grounded:
Another one to remember as I am going through this phase of really wanting something and getting close to it: Expect the best, Prepare for the worst.
One of the best books I have read is The Alchemist  by Paulo Coelho. I also read Eleven Minutes by him. I came across a lot of good quotes from him:
When you find your path, you must not be afraid. You need to have sufficient courage to make mistakes. Disappointment, defeat, and despair are the tools God uses to show us the way.
The wise are wise only because they love.
When we least expect it, life sets us a challenge to test our courage and willingness to change; at such a moment, there is no point in pretending that nothing has happened or in saying that we are not ready.

Want

In the past weeks2 , I have been really wanting something. I got 2 steps close  to it. I have been disparately  hoping for the next step with the following quote in mind. 

These are the different version I have heard it in:

"When you want something, all the universe conspires in helping you to achieve it." - Paulo Coelho (The Alchemist) 

"Once you make a decision, the universe conspires to make it happen" - Ralph Waldo Emerson 

"Agar tum kisi cheez ko sacchay dill se chaaho toh saari kaainaat tumhein usse milaane ke liye jutt jaati hai.... when u dearly love someone or u just want something to happen the whole universe comes together for it to happen the way u want" - Om Shanti Om 


Today, I got the good news that I have moved on to the next step as I was writing this. I strongly want this with all my heart and I hope that I achieve this one.
