Readers thanks for sticking around to read another chit-chat. I have no idea how many of you really follow this weekend series. I see around 200 page views on average for my chit-chat posts. I believe that’s the number of my dedicated readers.
A sincere thank to all of you, hope you’d do some great stuff on mother’s day. I called my mom and said thanks, I didn’t tell her about dedicating a post for her. Actually she doesn’t know that I write something that others read. She’d have fainted hearing this.
I exhibited poor linguistic skills at school. I know I haven’t improved much still, I am a lot better than I was a year before when I started this blog. So I am really excited to have you as a reader who keep on coming back.
We are going to Orlando for a three-day vacation during memorial day weekend. We’ll be spending three nights in a vacation property, I’ll not be able to spend time with the blog so, most probably next week’s chit-chat edition will not be published.
On the home front, SMB hasn’t found a job yet. We are trying for a baby since the last couple of years. Nothing’s happening on that front too. Let’s see what’s in store for us.
I have a week-long training ahead next week. The good thing is this is at-home training, 10 – 6. I am taking time off from work to attend this training to keep myself updated with the latest technology.
We are in the field of Java technology and we build software solution. Not software like he ones you install on your PC, It’s about developing web applications like your’s banks/credit cards. We build applications for the use of our call center professionals. They contain much more data than what you see on your typical bank account page.
The training is on a rapid application development platform called ‘PEGA’. So now I have decided to learn PEGA to keep myself ahead of others. A few weeks back I wrote that we have got a very challenging project to deliver this year. That requires PEGA expertise. Not that I too need to learn it but, I decided to build my knowledge, in case…
In a knowledge economy, everyone is your competitor. I have 12 years of work experience. I will get a job where I am competing with someone who is fresh out of college. I have still 30 more years to work. Now, what happens 20 years from now? I will have 32 years of experience and the same fresher will have 20 years of experience. If I do not keep myself up-trained, I’ll lose out then.
So, readers whatever you do continue to learn and sharpen your skills. When you’re all into solving present issues, think about the future issues as well, and, work towards solving that. Our brain has amazing power, give it a chance to think, it’ll find you a way.
Find ways to get ahead in whatever you wish to achieve, get an inch closer to our goal every day. Grow yourself one cent at a time. We are all gifted, only the ones who improve are the ones that get ahead.
