Dr. Rao’s Quought for the Day is:

If you learnt that, owing to unfavorable business conditions, your salary would be cut in half how would you react? Would you scramble to adjust your finances so you could continue? Or would you immediately look elsewhere?

If the latter, you are wasting your life. Think about it.
