Yes. Did that. Twice, in the lifetime so far.
One of the guys I look upto. I used to watch his YouTube videos & websites. I learned a lot from him. Surely he has been a guiding star to many who are big names on the internet today.
Unfortunately his current videos do not appeal to pro-users anymore. He lives in Seattle (?), USA, and to meet him, I should attend
the conference he hosts ( gnomedex) or any conferences that he go to.
There are many reasons…
may not elaborate properly, but there must be something in that soil… Mahatma Gandhi, Nelson Mandela are the inspirations of course.
On the technology /IT side, we have billionaires & technocrats Mark Shuttleworth, Elon Musk. And my favourite marketing/hi-tech agency : QUIRK resides there.
I guess I’ve enough reasons to go and visit the country & taste its water.
sigh! when they’re gonna host next cricket world cup in SA?
Learning is a continuous process. & the more I’m diving deep into linux servers & system administration the more I’m liking it.
Mr. Dilip Kulkarni believes in सादा जिवन, उच्च विचार! sada jeevan, uccha vichar. He is editor of some magazies & have authored many books (with Rajhans publication, Pune)
One of his books, सम्यक विकास really transformed my thinking process completely.
Since childhood I wanted to run a business.
The desire of doing business rather than serving in a company. Working on your own terms than doing job under some authority started becoming stronger as I started reading the pink paper, Economic Times at the age of 17.
But when I introspect I realised my weaknesses and knew it’d not be so soon I would build one.
I dont want to settle myself calling consultant or freelancer so I know I have to make it big. The process is continuous & on-going
I dont know whether I achieved it so far, but I think it’s a continuous process. It’s like a journey rather than a destination.
But surely I should mention here incidences when I felt that I was making my mom & pop proud.
- Becoming engineer was certainly one of the important moment & I felt satisfied that I didn’t give-up and didn’t make my mom & pop ashamed of myself for not completing it. (or should I say less ashamed? 🙁 But I’m glad and relieved that it’s over.
- Making sense, staying with parents and sticking to roots and principle is again in a way making my mom & pop proud! Hey have you checked my Google Profile page? go & follow me there if you dont.
in my dreams definitely.
well, it’s a continous process right? so you cannot mark it “checked”
But I’d mark it check when I will be in position to perform in front of good no. of people.
Currently I dont play guitar & has got it rusty. but I want to learn good & polish it more.
I bought a new spanish/ acoustic guitar in January-March (?) 2004. Got it from Girgoan, Mumbai.
I did pretty well research on that before buying & I dont regret it, I bought a good instrument. Many my friends fooled & bought bogus instrument.
