Tuesday 11th August 2015

Notes from Yesterday:

So far still learning to manage time efficiently, also need to be more productive and stick to plans. Little annoying when you are awaiting for someone to Email you estimates or anything that makes you dependent. I learn quickly no matter what if you want to do something, do it yourself, even you failed to achieve success but at least you learn to initiate and engage your attitude to be successful.

My Journey–From Developer To Entrepreneur–Day 3 of 100

Sunday 9th August 2015

A long and exhausting, but fun-loving, enjoyable BBQ, not had enough time to update the status. I was feeling so exhausted. This morning I have no choice but wake up early in the morning around 7:00 and get ready quickly, as I was due to squash session with friends. So I have a cold shower and it helped me to wide awake and gave me energy to play.

After a couple of hours sessions, headed for home and had no plans set for today. It was on purpose as yesterday I have not cleaned anything and need to tidy up, need to set up and arrange things. I have noticed that it is easy to give someone a good advice, but it is very hard to follow through on your own. I was a bit excited when I received the EE Action cam but after quick thought, I think I am not ready yet. So decided to return it on Monday.

My Journey–From Developer To Entrepreneur–Day 2 of 100

After picking Krisha and spend around 1 hour on training I have received a sad news and it was shocking for me, obviously it changed my all priorities as well. I was managing to come out of it quickly, but need to help Priti for shopping and arranging a BBQ the next day. So all my planned sink.
Although sometimes we have to step back from situation and not able to do what we originally thoughts, but it does not mean we loss anything, maybe a little bit late but I am sure this will pass too. At least writing this openly I found very helpful and I am glad I did it.

My Journey–From Developer To Entrepreneur–Day 1 of 100

After such a long journey of being a developer, I have decided to move on and always wanted to be an entrepreneur, I asked myself very first thing, Can I do anything it takes? Do I have the balls to dare it? After long thought around 39 days, I have come to a conclusion. “YES, I DO.” So no matter what I will be successful. Let me first define what is success to me, after lots of attempts for being good at something, I found that I can do certain things quickly than others, I am lucky enough that I have invested in self-development tools. Which will certainly going to help me to thrive my thirst.

So I have decided to write and filmed my own progress next 100 days. I have set my goals and my desires to measure my success. I am sure this is going to help lots of other people those who want to be or do what they always wanted to do. I can assure you this is going to be a daily chore for me and I will start using technology at the most.

So keep an eye on it.

Peace.

Log for Day One:

I am currently using a top notch and up-to-date Notebook, (Lenovo YOGA 13 – i7 Windows 8.1 Pro) 8 GB RAM, 128 GB SSD, etc., but after I have signed up for free update for Windows 10, I was so tempted to upgrade but I think my first encounter was so dull and scary with Windows 10, I thought leaving it not want to waste my time at the moment, especially as I am so into the zone. (Ninja – turtle). Also, I need to define what do I need to log and what not. I am going to log what I planned, what I have done so far, what I have done, which was not planned and how do I overcome or undergo those situations. I know it will be a bit harsh on me, but I am ready for all those things. As I told myself whatever it takes. I want to be a mentor to me. I know it deep down I can do anything I want and achieve what I can think of.

Here is my Day one Plan and the next day I will update it.
