For UPSC aspirants: when to take the giant step?
#After “first job”.
Just take any govt. desk job (could be of 10+2 or Graduate-level) for financial independence, financial stability, to reduce risk factors associated with UPSC & to take care of your responsibilities towards your family.
Go wild & take the giant leap i. e. UPSC CSE. Focus only on UPSC & nothing else.
Don’t take incremental steps, no need for first being, a Clerk in PSB then PO in PSB then in posts of SSC-CGL followed by serving in State civil services & finally cracking UPSC CSE.
Why this approach?
¬ the earlier you crack UPSC, the better it will be.
¬ if you crack at an early age then you can, by the near-end of your career, you can reach to top positions in bureaucracy.
¬ you will “live your dreams for more years”
¬ focused preparation assures success in competitive exams & UPSC CSE, like any other competitive exams demands the same.
P. S. 1. Going step-by-step after 1st job is being too much risk-averse.
P. S. 2. Take some risk & fly high.
