I am an Amateur
I am learning, learning to learn, learning to be happy, learning to work efficiently, learning to focus, learning to ask better questions.
What Do I do during working hours?
By designation I am Senior Engineer.
But in terms of real work, I do anything to everything where I see I can add value. From mentoring people to designing application architecture, from coding to documentation, from testing to code reviews.
What do I want to do in working hours?
I am among the fortunate ones, who are doing the things which they want to do in their working hours. Coding, providing IT solutions, and managing products is what I always wanted to do, and this is what I am doing right now. Lucky me.
What do I want to do in my non-working hours?
I had started and failed at many of my IT startup ideas, have given more than 10 years of my after-office hours to it. The idea was never to earn money but to make something which provides solutions to people’s existing problems and creates impact.
Now I am working on providing value to people by:
