Where do you want to go today?

Often I start a day very normally, and it goes normal till the time I interact with people. Once I do, it becomes confused, I forget what I wanted to do, I forget what I wanted to work on, and it mostly happens at the office and affects office work.

This lack of attention and preoccupied brain is a big distraction for me towards concentration at work. Then I try to find a solution towards this problem and in doing so I get frustrated as to what the optimal solution can be.

Sometimes we just need to set ourselves free and work, even if it is a bit slow. I have learnt this thing to some extent that even if I stay preoccpied, or have some strong stuff running inside my head, I keep pushing myself towards work, no matter how slow I work... It is helpful.

Employee Appreciation

TEE RR GG!!!


That was the exclamation of the whole 60 people TRG Europe team when they joined on the telephone bridge to say thanks to a fellow developer, and a good friend of mine; Fawwad Atiq. This bridge was open only for the sake of thanking Fawwad for his exceptional work over the last few month. He really deserved this. the whole U.K. team thanked Fawwad and they promised him a prize for this.


I can tell from the freshness over Fawwad's face, that they made his day :)


Hats Off Fawwad! :)


Employee appreciation does create a difference in the life of an employee, but is shouldn't be abused at any workplace, i.e. appreciating the employee to neglect other parts of his life. (Ofcourse this is not the case with my colleague, it is just a thought.)

Wow Turkey Wow!

Turkey gave a really hard time to Germany, infact, it was a complete tough game and a complete semifinal. Turkey had nothing to lose, as it already made a great show by reaching semifinals.

Germany won 3-2, and it was awesome watching the match in the cafeteria.

Hatts off to Turkey!!

Change

I have been thinking lately to get a change in my life. It has got corrupted due to inaction, and has just been frustrating. I am not going to get into the details of anything, but over all, things have became monotonous, routined (ill routined actually, due to job timings), not really interesting, and low. The key to change all this, is most probably to get a big change in my life.

What is a change?

Just googled it and found so many different results that I opened the word web dictionary, and found it's meaning. Change, can be used as a verb, and it means Cause to change; make different; cause a transformation. All right, I need a transformation. Transformation from the current self I have got developed.

I am planning to make this change in the upcoming months, starting from July 2008. I don't have exact mindset as of yet for what needs to be done first to achieve the "change", but I guess making myself physically better would be one the first things that I would find helpful in getting nearer to the change. Other things might include scheduling work timings (as soon as I have typed this, I have pinged my boss on the instant messenger to tell him to get a van to pick and drop us daily; this will schedule the time automatically) and developing a hobby/interest.

That's it for right now, till this point, this all always seemed a hell lot of stuff for me to do, but I will make sure that I take them easy on mind and hard on implementation. :)
