Friends. Rachel. Both names tumble out of the same cell in my brain. And I think it goes true for many of you as well. Jennifer Aniston, our very own Rachel, shot to fame with one of the best sitcoms ever. After doing several romcoms and her high profile marriage and subsequent divorce with Brad Pitt, you can never deny that Aniston has covered a long journey. But fans of Rachel think that she could have been among the legends if she had handled her career in a better way.
Adrian, another Jennifer Aniston fan, thinks she lost track of it after her marriage with Pitt fell apart. He also believes that her failed marriage made it impossible for her to focus again, and she lost it completely then on. Though I don’t agree with him on everything, but there’s a certain sense in that. Do we have a lesson to learn from here? It would be very easy to say that we must not lose sight of our professional goals when our personal life goes into a tizzy, but it’s a lot easier said than done.
I mean, would you like to come in and work when you have had a bad fight with your spouse? As professionals, it’s absolutely important that you leave your personal problems outside the door of your cubicle. But, I refuse to believe that it is always possible for even the most hard-nosed professional. If that was possible, no one would put up snapshots of their dear ones on the pin-board or on the monitor! What do you think? Can you switch off your personal self before you enter office? Chime in.
