4 yrs...baap rey



Completed 4 yrs of my work life yesterday..8th of August 2009. An achievement, though i hav done nothing much in these 4 yrs. Infact somehow i hav always felt that my knowledge and skill levels have gone down. I know many other software engineers feel like this. Wonder if this is a disease associated with this profession :|

Anyways, completing four yrs is an achievent, though quite a small one, and i was happy and relieved tht i cud achieve this milestone. Gifted myself with a 4 GB Kingston pen drive and an expensive hair cut.

But mayank said something which really caught my attention..4 yrs of B.E. passed like a gush of wind..but 4 yrs of work life!!!! Since last two years, every day of my work life has been a pain in the ***. The whole enthusiam that never downed in 4 yrs of college life, in fact it only increased, all of it drained out of me in just 2 yrs.

The reality is, abhi to sirf 4 saal huey hain..still many more to go :|

New to work life..how do we do that..suggestions are welcome.

I have tried working on new products, new projects, changed my company, stressed on professional life for one year, loved everybit of my personal life another year, but never cud find that elusive balance.

Btw i hav posted pics of some adventures i have been to, put a new thought every week.
Desk calendar is a gud idea. More ideas please.

Back after a long time. Congrats. You seem to have a lot of fans ;). BTW, it's the distracting things at work that are more fun, this movie screening, that team party, that event i organized, etc. Try increasing those :).

Unfortunately due to cost cutting all parties and team events have gone down (almost zero :| ). Regarding my fans..hehehhee..wht to say :) :) I hope kisi ki nazar na lagey :P
