Enlist yourself for the good stuff here

Just this past week, a 24-year-old software engineer from Bengaluru took to Grapevine and penned down a note on how despite earning a hefty salary of 58 lakhs per annum, he is unhappy with his life.

The note has since then gone viral, having amassed a bunch of shares and comments from people talking about it from various different perspectives.

As someone who has been working in the Bengaluru software engineering industry for close to 10 years now, and as someone who went through and outgrew a similar phase in his own life, I think I have an understanding about this problem that most people tend to lack.

And I think it’s not much of a stretch to say that this guy is not alone in what he’s feeling. A lot of different people would have similar experiences of feeling disenfranchised with Life despite doing well financially. They just haven’t had the courage to be as open and honest as our viral guy.

So, in the latest episode of The Unlearning Playground podcast, I aim to provide a wholly different perspective on the entire situation in the only way that seems mature to me – as honestly as possible.

I offer a 3-step guide to anyone who’s really looking for a solution.

I honestly hope this video reaches out to the guy who wrote that note too. So, if you can play your part in that, please share this with your community. You never know the impact a little click of a button can have on others.

I’ll see you in the playground.

Until next time.

Peace out.
