    Wonder what you guys aspire professionally?

    Since I am into business, I dream of having a pretty big business. Well 100crore may be. Though that's not vert big by modern day "big" standards but then that is where I want to be at the least. Have 50-100 employees working in a professional environment. Good "corporate" office, warehouse. Be known all over India in my line of business.

    always had targets set professionally back when i was doing my bit in the corporate, and the targets were always job profile oriented and never monetarily because i have always believed have the right JP and a strong brand to back you and money automatically follows you.

    timelines were +2 years max, prior to my professional job being cut short thanks to my health.

    age bracket of 31-33 was the time period to reach the national level in my managerial professional life, which i did well before time, certainly quite a few months to spare before i touched 31. next in line was to be at the global regional position, where i had an offer from this taiwanese co to head south-asia just one yr after being at the helm of my last job but by then it was time to pack up my stuff.

    eventual target was a senior global position with a company which would have a presence in at least 50 or more countries and the max timeline for that was 40yrs, by when i would have started contemplating retirement to start my own biz. a regret i live with but i hope i can make my biz successful and create a brand people long to work with.

    My aspiration in one word is to be able to work in tracking systems.

    Tracking systems are used in many areas. I am interested in the defense area, especially missiles and UAVs, that use vision based systems to track targets. I am not there yet.

    If I aim for he moon, at least I will land among the stars.

    I want to quit the IT consulting field and start something of my own in Bangalore... My fascination with IT has died out.

    Aiming to be a general practitioner of medicine. India needs more doctors.

    A problem I see with many doctors today is that they are too focused on making money rather than rendering service. You cannot be a good doctor with such an outlook.

    You only need enough money to satisfy life's basic desires, i.e. food, water, shelter, clothing, and internet access.

    You forgot Apple iPhone for Yusuf bhai. Just kidding Yusuf. :D

    Well, CivFanatic, why is internet access a basic desire? I agree with the rest. Well, if you ask some austere Jains, even clothing is not a basic desire.

    I guess it varies for person to person.

    Social connectivity is an essential human desire, and nowadays the internet is becoming an increasingly important avenue for this. I can't imagine life without internet, sad as that may be.

    And trust me, I would not wear any clothing if I had the choice, but society demands that I do.

    To crush my enemies, see them driven before me, and to hear the lamentation of their women.
