Trust30 : The Biggest Challenge At The Moment : Scaling Up

Today’s prompt from Trust30 Challenge from Jenny Blake is to identify the biggest challenge at the moment and turn it in to question to face it and journal all ideas that come up in next 48 hours.

Identify one of your biggest challenges at the moment (ie I don’t feel passionate about my work) and turn it into a question (ie How can I do work I’m passionate about?) Write it on a post-it and put it up on your bathroom mirror or the back of your front door. After 48-hours, journal what answers came up for you and be sure to evaluate them.

One of my biggest challenges at this moment and the one that is literally wearing me out is about scaling up. I have been working on a lots of different ideas for some time and have been searching for opportunities to realize them. Thanks to a friend that believed in me and invested on the project last year that became a huge success. And call it snowball effect or just sheer momentum, found opportunities to realize a whole bunch of others.  It’s a great news, except some of them demand a timeline that need executing multiple projects in parallel.  Not sure how to scale up to leverage these opportunities.

Executed right, it will set us on the right track to get really what I have been dreaming all this time. Failing to deliver, is not an option at this stage. So I am going to frame this challenge in a different perspective, like the prompt suggested, into a question and see if it will change my thought pattern and opens up doors to new answers I couldn’t see before.

Rather than just one question, I would like to try out different questions and see where they will lead me to. Will post the questions that I come up with and answers at the end of 48 hours.

I am glad I accepted this Trust30 Challenge. It really made me think this morning quite differently about my biggest challenge.

You Are What You Think People Think About You

“There are about 6.7 Billion people in this world that we know of.  Whether you believe in ‘Creation’ or ‘Evolution’, this human race started with a tiny number. It is quite amazing to see how fast it multiplies. What is more amazing is that every single individual in that 6 billion crowd is born ‘unique’.  Quite literally, you are born to be one in a billion, whether you believe it or not. “ This was the Introduction to my latest and last speech in Toast Masters club, ‘One in a Billion’ as part of International Speech contest. 
As much as I believe that each one of us can be that 'one in a billion' personality, I admit the reality as I perceive it and some times feel alone in that belief.
A famous quote says 'You are what you think'. It is also true that 'you are what you think people think about you'. If you think people think you are smart, then you act smart and become smart. If you think people think you are dumb, you will become dumb even if you are not, a…

Cooking looks like an unforgiving art

When you are writing software, you always get a second chance. In fact, lots of chances to get it correct. You have compiler warnings, failed test cases and some times crashes alert you that something is not right and will give you a chance to correct. And you get literally unlimited chances to apply those corrections. 
Well, cooking looks to be totally unforgiving in this respect and on any given day, you may get just one chance to get it right. If you fail, you fail. Try again right away if you have patience of starting it all over. Or start over some time later or next day. But not much of a second chance to correct a mistake. 
More ruthless, when it comes to salt. If you put just a little more, even a tiny little more, it never hesitate to show what it got. Totally ruthless. End result will be a failed dish that no one will be able (and/or happy) to eat. And most dishes, you may not be able to add something little more to offset it.

Little trick I learned the hard way, start on …

Just For Fun : India’s Super Computer

This is a T-shirt I bought almost 10 years ago that depicts the Lord Ganesha as India’s super computer. It was so much fun wearing it then as it used to grab everybody’s attention. And in my recent trip, I recovered it and wore again yesterday. It grabbed everybody’s attention as usual.Look at the mighty RAM he got. 256MB RAM.  Well it was quite a bit of RAM 10 years back. Thanks to Harish for taking a quick snap and sharing it. The iPhone he used got lot more power and memory than one the best computers of that time. That says it all.I guess, I should pull out all my T’s with messages and post it. May be myself and those around me that time could relive some of those wonderful moments.
