There's a first time for everything.

Hi all,
This is my first blog....
which is not surprising since the previous few days have been a combination of infinite "firsts" for me.Being a new joinee (i just completed my engineering in CompSci.) in an IT company,I was in the process of completing my 2 months Java training when i was urgently called in by my new PM about 5 days ago to work on a Live project that totally deals with Linux and C.I was intimidated at first, but it feels totally great now,because I'm learning and doing so many new things for the first time.This new thrill that I feel got me thinking -->

We are all used to living our lives the same monotonous way its been shaped into.Many a time, we experience excitement or happiness because of a change that just happens(like in my case), not cos we ourselves do anything to be dynamic.Let me ask a few Questions-1.When was the last time we felt happy & great doing something totally innovative at our workplaces?(instead of the usual 8/10 hour daily grind)2.How many new people in your company have you introduced yourselves and got to know in the past week? 3.Do we all remember the last book we read and how long has it been since?4.When was the last time we helped someone poor and helpless?(if that makes us happy)5.When was the last time we have been our own 'Agents of Change' instead of waiting for somebody to transform our lives? I'll just end by adding 2 quotes --

"You aren't remembered for doing what is expected of you"

"Find a job you love, and you will never have to work again"

Take care!

"You aren't remembered for doing what is expected of you"

"Find a job you love, and you will never have to work again"

I strongly disagree with both of them.

1. The fact that you did what was expected of you is testimony enough for your worth to the world and yourself. I am saying this because there is always high expectations on a person, and doing that much is no-less challenging. However if you end up doing more than that, then that is only an added bonus.

2. -Never have to work again- I say if you find what you love doing, you will never be short of work. Most likely you will be working 24x7 (depends on how much you are in love with the work)

These are just factual takes on the two set of quotations, but they only show a broken partial face of work and life in general.

This is a straight forward result of *over-simplification*. I say keep life's complexities low, but don't go for such cliched overkills.

Ok. I agree, I went for the overkill. But what to do, my transport link is not moving. He will take another 20 minutes. I just posted on my blog also. Not in a mood for two posts in a row.
