Eight Years!!!

I was preparing for my BSc first second papers, when saw an ad for the competition organized by an upcoming ISP (Avadh, it no longer exists). After a lot of delays it actually happened. 2 tense rounds which involved whole day and I was declared the winner of "Design Online Challenge". It remained to be the only competition where I won, and I hope not the only one... :)

Many things changed in these eight years but my attitude towards work only compounded. Sometimes I really feel time is funny, there was a time when I hardly used to study and now people (read my friends) call me workaholic.

It’s a kick I feel which a person gets addicted to, and the same happened with me I suppose. Just wanted to think back and smile. I owe it to my sister whose last minute encouragement worked, and yeah that gif was her choice… :)

Lesson!!!

Apart from hectic work schedule in office, we are having "Managers Training" of sorts and that has nothing to do with me being a Manager, cuz i hate the word "MANAGER". It sounds like a laid back guy in mid 30's who uses team members as his "Frustration Toy". Ok i wont deviate from the topic... :)

We had our first session after the inaugral one (which by the way was amazing). A lady was our instructor who had around 13yrs of experience in HR field. Along with some valuable suggestions she hit my nerve by saying, "We spent most of the time with problem creators". After hearing that i got sudden pictures in my mind of doing the the exact activity.
That was a big lesson i learned, and now am practicing not to do the same and its working out effectively :)

"Suggested contacts" Am looking forward...

So at last google is tweaking the contacts managed Algorithm. It was for sure annoying at times... But sometimes it was very useful i should say :)

Best solution is let user decide which is a valid "Contact" for a person.
