Ravinder on asking for help.

Tech is a field where it’s hard to disconnect yourself from work when you go home. What happens is, at times, things become overwhelming. Having work-life balance becomes a challenge. When it comes to a time when your family needs to be a priority, set the right expectations. Talk to the right people. For example, early in my career, I was working late hours continuously. There was a lot of pressure at that time. Finally after a couple of years, I was at a point where I was like, ‘I’m too tired. I need to focus on my family and myself.’ I talked to my managers and they were fine with me taking a break. They didn’t ask me any questions. They said, ‘Yeah, you worked hard. We know your performance. Now, take some time off to take care of your other priorities.’ I did and then I came back to work. When companies know you are really good, they invest in you. They won’t let you go. That’s been my experience.
