Many people want to follow their passion but very few have the heart and dedication to do justice to it. We have heard many stories of people who left their jobs to follow their true heart desires but Irfan Siddique’s story is a little different.
Irfan Siddique’s is a in a full-time job and also has a vibrant blog, and he loves both aspects of his life equally. Irfan is a software tester by profession and a travel and lifestyle blogger by passion, and he does justice to both these roles.
People often complain about not being able to do justice to their passion because of their full-time professional commitments. But then we have Irfan Siddique who makes the most of his 24 hours juggling both his roles with perfection. Despite being in a full-time job, he found time for his passion and did full justice to it.
With his work and corporate life of 9 to 6 jobs, he is following his passion as well. He considers the Hindi film ‘Gully Boy’ very relatable as it taught him to always follow passion. Besides this, ‘Tamasha’ is also his favorite film which helped him understand that it is important to rediscover yourself.
Irfan believes in drawing a fine line between professional and passion pursuits. He believes that it is important to balance both perfectly. Irfan says “It is really important to have financial stability for the long run and I am really glad that I can work on both things simultaneously”. He has traveled to 14 states in India and 4 countries of the world.
He has collaborated with several brands and loves to enjoy the dual role of being an IT guy and a lifestyle blogger. He has also collaborated with renowned chef Ranveer Brar for his TV shows and has been featured in many top publications.
Other than this, he has collaborated with many other brands including Holiday Inn, The Fern Hotels, U.S Polo, Adidias, Manyavar, Pantaloons, HRX, Tata Motors, Nissan India, Titan, Mumbai Indians, Amazon among others.
Irfan Siddique believes that if we manage our time well, we will be able to perfectly balance both profession and passion. Most people blame their profession for not being able to follow their passion but the truth is that they don’t manage time judiciously. The time we spend on idling can be utilized for other endeavors.
The saying goes – one for the stomach, one for the soul, and Irfan believes in nurturing both for a successful, wholesome, and fulfilling life.
Irfan is an inspiration for every youngster who has dreams of excelling in multiple fields in his lifetime. Irfan loves both his profession and passion, and can’t even think of leaving any.
