The Powerful–‘Now’

I know lately I am not writing enough or doing something I should do or suppose what I love to do a lot. Writing. So I have come to a point where I found that let me write what is it.

‘Now’ – a powerful state. How? Let me explain to you.

If you have five minute from now onwards then just stop reading this further and switch off you screens, and sit down if you are not already be sited and without thinking further just sit quietly for 5 minutes.  See you after 5 minutes.

Image result for now

[……Read this after 5 Minutes……]

Right, if you are already not lost or distracted by any other activity or interrupted, than let me tell you the power you have felt is just now.

Think it again, Go back when you sit quietly,

what did you observed?

what did you feel?

Train of thoughts, mumbling self talks, Feelings, Rush through, Time lapse, your senses – smell, hear, see, touch. heartbeats …. endless emotions, feelings and your reaction to it – without thinking that all it is virtue. 

Just for a moment, detached yourself from your own self(by not to think about anything), a moment where you become now (technically we’re all ‘Now’, but we are not conscious or aware of it).  I don’t want to confuse you or puzzled you but let you feel what exactly you are feeling ‘Now’ and the moment you breath in or out, and be aware of ‘Now’ you will feel that power. Ok, I know it is first hard to understand and unexplainable in a way.

Let me help you out. What ever you are feeling right now, just stop. Just for a few moments, and go back when it started (not in the past but back just few moments ago) and try to identify what was it that make you feel? a thought – sense (hear, see, smell, touch) or something very powerful which you don’t know about it, Until ‘Now’.

The misery of  entire life lies in ‘Now’. Yes you have read correct – ‘Now’ is the truth. Sort but brutal, it born, you live it and it died, became a past, in this second. Done. Yet leave so many things behind, thoughts, things, emotions, memories,…… lots of it…

Have you ever wonder why? No… no need to. When you became aware of ‘Now’. This powerful moment, you don’t have to feel anything but just accept it as it is. Shell I have to do anything about it? Yeah off course. Live it fully. Happy, sad, anger, any emotions do you have now or feel when you think or wonder…. just remember – ‘Now’. Right… ‘Now’.

I think it is really a deeper then I anticipate, yet very simple. I am not a philosopher or disciple of any Guru’s, or God or religion, Well I used to be one, but when I awake or become conscious about ‘Now’ everything for me become secondary and no need to worry or feel anything about anyone. But it doesn’t mean that I am not getting angry, happy or sad or anything a normal human does. But because of this awareness,  Powerful ‘Now’, I don’t have to waste my energy on anything which is virtue.  So you don’t have too.

When you are feeling so many things or time where you feel down or high or any state just be aware of yourself by Now. Key is Detached yourself completely and feel the ‘Now’. All the problems will vanish on that very moment. You become more wise and wisdom of ‘Now’ will guide you through.

Let me know how do you feel now….?

Sincerely,

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.

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.

So you stuck with a problem – Never give up early

YOU FIGHT YOU SURVIVE!!!!

Recently I have come across a common problem with the product/theme your client has purchased and they stumble upon the non-responsive support from the vendor. Well it is very important in the life cycle of any web project. Working product is great and if something is not working it is worst ever.

Because as a user if I cannot able to see the action of a button I click then I lose my faith and trust, and it panelised to the ecommerce. I think at this stage it seems like a riddle to you all. Let me give full background and explain it correctly.

My client recently decided to purchase a nopCommerce theme and they saw it perfect fit for the given budget as it is a start-up company. Well I said it is fair enough for the price (if it is working as it says). But after purchase they realized after few weeks that the bounce rate on the page is still high, daily average visitors are growing but no further call to action happening. They all were surprised. When I looked at the report and asked myself it cannot be true. So, we had quick meeting and director asked me can you tell me what is the problem? I was not sure at that point and asked give me time to understand the actual underlying problem and what is actually happening. He agreed to that.

I started analysing the situation, first thing I did was check all the functionality works in all across the browsers, and bingo!!!! I hit with first problem, quick view button does not work in the mozzilla Firefox, IE but it is perfectly working in the Chrome browser. Doah…!!!! I asked why ???But it was too early to conclude.

Series of questionnaires fired back and forth for who had made purchase decision and why? Did they have trial before buying? And what about support? who is going to help. So, on…. endless…

Meantime my entire focus was on fixing the problem, each day was important because user was not able to see the result of their actions (i.e. Quick View – See http://jewellery.nopextensions.com/ in Firefox or IE, and then compare with Chrome), I digger it more and I gave an estimate to fix around 3 hours. (it was big mistake, I should have asked more time, but on other hand it was just an estimate not a commitment. At least I was honest about the situation).

Now When I go through the debugging process (jQuery debugging in Visual studio and Firebug tools) it was not throwing any errors and I was also puzzled. I thought it seems me impossible. But then after 5 hours of exhaustive exercise of debugging, I thought I am stuck with a problem, let me more Google it, search forums and try to find out – why? but I was wrong, immediately I found out I should not go for why? but I should go for How do I fix it. But later on, I rest my case for that night, although sometimes I felt too much attached to a problem, mind constantly in search of answers.

Saturday early morning around 4:55 am all of sudden realized what actually can be done so I jump out of bed, and flash thought and grab my hot seat, quickly fire up with my IDE, modify some changes, (failed… Doah… no results, no lights… no sign of hope) … aaahhh… so I stepped back from original. Rethink about it. I swift my focus on what possible way I can fix it? Step through on the paper (before and after situations) and I see light at the end of the tunnel. Taaa daaa…

Yes, it was issue with dynamically added DOM elements on the page and Firefox, IE was not able to bind the event correctly due to page ready was firing late and even though the bubbling up the static member was not correctly handle the event. So now actual problem was identified (But Chrome was handling it easily – why FF and IE not??? still puzzle. Well it was too much for me.) So, what was the solution, I tried few techniques and one was using correct “. on()" delegate it when you are appending in the DOM elements dynamically. Which I think fair to say and although it is not the best solution ever but at least it gave me the opportunity to rectified the situation and continue to progress. I fixed it and now the results can be seen on my client’s page, they were happy and so do I.

So far

I have learned

1.     Never give up early

2.     Never rely on free or open source.

3.     Trust your own instinct

4.     Keep trying

5.     Keep learning and exploring but not too much goggling, it is time waster

6.     Focus on solution not problem.

7.     You may not know everything but that is absolutely acceptable.
