Why do I write?
The main reason is that I am also a web developer, willing to help all the aspiring web-developers out there who want to step into this community of developers, but need a…
Here’s a question for you — Recall your memories from the school days, college days, and when you started your first job, did you notice how one or two people were always able to make an impact, even though they were complete beginners?
Think about it! I’ll come back to this question.
(A quick introduction — skip this section if you have read my newsletters before)
Hey there! This is your friend, The Lean Programmer. Welcome to August’s newsletter.
In each newsletter, I share the best blogs from the previous month, and talk about one topic that can help you…
Let’s be honest, when was the last time you did something and felt unnecessary guilt — one side of your brain said “it’s ok, we can do it sometimes”, but the other side said, “you should be ashamed of yourself for doing this”?
I am pretty sure that you went through this feeling recently. In fact, most of us go through this multiple times daily (including me!)
Here’s a question for you — What do you think is louder than your voice (or any sound)? Pause here for a moment, and think about it.
Okay, do one thing, go to a friend’s home (or make a phone call), and shout at your best voice — “I AM THE BEST PROGRAMMER IN THIS WORLD!”
Would you be acknowledged as the best programmer? Not likely,
Would you be acknowledged as a lunatic? I bet!
Okay, let’s think about one more scenario — devote your 6 months into learning how to code, and the next 6 months into -
It’s that time of the year when everyone will be posting about their selection in GSoC, getting new jobs or internships, and their achievements,
Here’s a message to those who fall in the above category, and those who don’t.
If you are someone falling in the above category, you cracked GSoC? Or won that big hackathon? Or got that dream internship/job? Heartiest congratulations, you did a great job.
Here are 2 important points you should remember -
Achievements are temporary, victory is never permanent and loss is never final. So keep working!
No matter how many mountains you climb…
Before we start, a quick thing that I want to ask you, I hope that you are safe and taking care of yourself in these tough times? Please please please, prioritize health over anything else at this time, and do take care and proper precautions while going out.
When I began my journey (~3.5 years ago), it all started with me facing a lot of trouble in finding proper resources to learn things, all I wanted was someone who could guide me.
Fast forward 1.5 years, 2 things happened
You work very hard, you love your friends and the people in your direct network, and you really want them to acknowledge your presence. But, you feel that you aren’t being noticed by your friends, valued by your colleagues, and not getting enough attention in your work/organization?
If you feel so, don’t worry, you are not alone. As a matter of fact, most of the people whom I know either have faced this in their lives or are currently facing this issue. You must have heard this quote —
“A prophet is not honoured in his own country.”
“Those who tell stories rule society.” — Plato
Let me ask you 2 questions —
These questions were to make you realize that human minds are bad at remembering facts and figures but good at remembering stories.
All of us have some dreams and ambitions that we want to make true while we are alive, but most of us make one big mistake, we confuse our dreams and ambitions with “goals”.
Goals are just some actionable checkpoints that lead us towards our dreams, they help us make that “dream” come true quickly.
In this blog, I am going to tell you the five steps that can help you fulfill almost any ambition that you have, and I will explain you each step with the help of 2 examples. …
We all want to say “yes” to everything that comes to us. There can be different reasons for this, a lot of us suffer from “Fear of Missing Out” (or, FOMO), while others might want to maintain relationships by always saying yes.
No matter what the reason, it’s obvious that we can’t say yes to everything that comes to us, if we do that we would be wasting our own time (which we could have spent doing something more productive, or something more enjoyable).
Saying “No” can be difficult, but we can do that without making the other person…
