I am an Amateur
Wow, I am so relieved now by saying I am an amateur. These words give me the advantage of trying new things without the fear of failure. I am an amateur, I am allowed to fail. This title allows me to ask questions which I always feared to ask, because what will people think? an experienced guy asking such a stupid question.
What Do I do during working hours?
By designation I am Principal 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 have 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.
But now I have changed my mode of providing value to people by working on this website thinkscholar.com, posting useful information on my little one Instagram profile @insiakalra & my Instagram profile @_rakeshkalra, and creating youtube videos.
