Funny and laughing 

It you’re not going to listen to me then I am going to punch you on a face…

No worries 

Zero disruptive OS

I wish if I could have been involved in an OS development which has my ideal features 

  • Boot in 3 sec.
  • Can develop any application regardless of any platform or any dependencies.
  • Zero disrupting while update.
  • Resilient and reliable, robust
  • Designed for development only.

The list is endless but I wish I had these, even in my dreams.

But reality is so brutal and crude.

One day may be AI and Deep learning might help.

Restless feelings

Sometime you are not performing well under the circumstances. Your behaviour make you think why am I doing this? Do I have to do that? And it contradicts each other without rational explanations.

Be the change you want to see in the world

I have come across those situations many times in my life. It happens and I’ve seen myself not perform well, but it does not make me weak, but gives me an opportunity to become more resilient and face the challenges of the life. It seems hard to achieve, convert each obstacle into an opportunity. But they are meant to be like that. Sole purpose for these obstacles are to draw a better things in your life, in reality I have experienced this.

However, sometimes it looks like gauntlet all this plethora of jargons and tingling, little attention to the unnecessary details leads us nowhere and makes you less effective and less productive. I think it’s more likely to do with human emotions. We are all faces waves of emotions, we sail through the sea of emotions and sometimes faces impromptu challenges through tough times. So I simply let it be.

Bit of bizarre as I am writing this, felt like, Yeah…, but then…. Can I do anything about it either way? Can I get it under control? Well, it seems not impossible to detach from our emotions, but still it arise a lot and we can feel its effect on our body and on our mind. Yet I think it is hard for me to express what it is and how to come out of it.

I am currently working toward to develop a habit to be master. Well, I am going to be brutally honest. Current Job hunting is distressing a lot, also keep the consistence to something, dedication became a virtue. Nevertheless, discipline has not, that I haven’t tried. It is just being unexplained excuses. Partly I would take a blame for it. Rest its my human nature which carried away sometime wondering, training and getting many things done at ones. Naturally it leads to failure and sometimes in the desert, nowhere…

I wish there were a time machine somewhere, So I could have prevented myself.

Dream Big, Act Little

Dream-Big-Act-Little

 

Well Original saying was Think Big.

But I think after Big Thinking I concluded to Dream Big, Act Little.

Let me elaborate more what I mean by Dream Big, Act Little.

Most of the time mind wanders and thinking all the time, known fact. No Big deals, Thinking Big is also not a big deal, wishful thinking, all good to say. But How you are going to fulfil is a question?

What I mean by Dream big, act little means everyday try to see same dream over and over and over, your subconscious mind will lay out all the ground work for you and all you need to do is act a little.

Seems like some magical things, but in fact it is not. Let me tell you thinking is a conscious thing and your mind play games when it comes to thinking, but in dreams you are creating a world which deeply attached to your desires and emotions. The same dream can make these roots stronger and better. Effectively, it nurtures your habits and creates an environment for you to be successful in every possible way.

Someone can easily argue about it, says always think big, I wouldn’t have denied it, but rather I would say dream big and act little as your higher self will drive you there to achieve your big dreams. This could be your journey or even lifelong mission or purpose of your own birth in this earth.

Peace.

Still Epic – TGIF

I am laughing out loud  rolling on floor.

Still feel it’s epic. Completely.

Made my morning.

Farewell Windows Essential 2012 – You have served your purpose.


 

 

I’ve been using Windows Essential 2012 since last four years and sadly it is coming to end of support. Microsoft is discontinuing the Windows Essentials services and its support. Bit of unfortunate for users like me. But on other hand it is also developing a new product called Open Live writer which I found very intimidating. Although I haven’t done anything with it yet as I am missing all the plug-ins which I used with it. (Gurr… L !!!) But at least good side it has served its purpose. So, happy farewell to Windows Essentials 2012 – You will be forgotten soon.

Ciao.

 

 

How not to spam someone who is seriously looking for a job?

When you send an email about a potential role or job, then three key things you keep in the email precisely.

  1. What is a job role ( making sure you have read the profile of candidate and aware that is relevant to the post, VERY IMPORTANT). If you don’t have Job Description then do not bother to spend company time to copy paste from someone else. Doah. (Recently I have received 5 emails same description, but different company…. Are you insane?) I wonder why company is paying to do such spam. Seriously. Grow up.
  2. Where is it exactly (You should not be generic but specific, Assume that you have read the profile and know where he/she lives, let us say 30 Miles from your location and its commutable daily within reasonable time i.e. 45min to 1hour, it would be nice and save time for both you).
  3. How much it offers ? There should not be many positions to fill in. (It should be ONLY ONE – No one is working on 10 roles at a time and only fools will fall for it.) And it is given that reason to get right opportunity.

Here is an example I have received today, Kindly accept my apologies for being straight.

Hi Ravi,

Hope you’re well.

I wanted to make you aware of a number of exciting contract opportunities I am currently engaged on.

Our client is a large, dynamic and fast growth business and they’re looking for a number of Software Development roles to be a key part of their ecommerce strategy.

If you are interested in discussing this or alternatively want to update me with your current availability, then please get in touch.

We also offer referral fees for any successful placements where you will receive up to £50 per month for the life of the contract*. If you can recommend anyone who may be interested in new opportunities, then please let me know.

I look forward to supporting you now or in the future with your next move.

Best regards,

————————————————————————————-

Rest of the part is discreet. I hope someone will read this and grab the attention. If you are looking for quality candidate and seriously wants to help your client to fulfil the position then you know what you need to do. And those who think this way they will get anywhere, then they need training (and SERIOUSLY stop wasting precious time and money of others). If you ask me where to find right candidate then I will ask what’s a role, location and how much they are will to pay. Simple.

Side Note:

Also when you send email you must follow up to the candidate with correct contact details and ask whether they have received email and discuss their thoughts. I know it is expensive but at least it will give you right people to the target.

My thoughts on Agile

Recently I read an article on Agile with title – Agile Methods don’t exist. What does, then? by Jan Ambrozlewlcz

I think its fair to say – Agile is all about Mindset. It is not a discipline but a practice which allow to adopt changes quickly and efficiently whenever changes are essential to the end goal.   Although it is not so easy for any organization or team or division to come with one voice over end games, each individual has their own perception and understanding of what actually need to achieve and not everyone can pursue it correctly. I think that’s where the problem underlies. Agile can be easily apply on games where we do not regret over the mistakes done, it’s already done, move on. Make a strategy is a key to win the game, and agility is a key to adopt the strategy quickly.

Agile_methods_don_t_exist._What_does,_then_10Clouds_Blog_-_2016-11-23_09.28.00

But quick does not mean accurate or perfect or 100% done. It means when direction has changed it has adopt it and change it course (whether it is a team, project or company). And swift focus on the sort term changes (which I see as challenges). It’s risky to say it but I think if decision taken as a team and each member has visualize the strategy thoroughly and involved themself in it then nothing is impossible to achieve in ever changing environment (i.e. agile).  All we need is a courage and voice to phrase.

Being Successful……

To *want* and to be ambitious and to want to be successful is not enough. That’s just desire. To know what you want, to understand why you’re doing it, to dedicate every breath in your body, to achieve . . . If you feel that you have something to give, if you feel that your particular talent is worth developing, is worth caring for, then there’s nothing you can’t achieve." Kevin Spacey
