    This is a case written in autobiographical style of an Indian manager. He was 31 years old with nine years' working experiences and currently working for a Software MNC. He was the only son of his parents. After graduating from the Indian Institute of Management, Ahmedabad, he joined an Indian consultancy firm based in Chennai and moved to the company where he is currently working five years later. His brief marriage had ended in a divorce. In his current job he was being shuttled from one crisis to another, fire fighting all the time. He had to decide about an offer to go back to his previous employer. He also had to decide if he wanted to marry again. This case explores the need and challenges in personal goal-setting and decision making.
