Be Inspired! Keep working hard; Never give up!


Well, I just turned on Facebook for a few minutes and interestingly found a link “Is it too late to start programming at 17 if you want to be a top programmer?” pointing to a post on Quora! I read it.

And, that’s something really awesome!

Believe me, it’s very essential in life to keep working towards your goals, you should always keep on moving. We should always do things which motivate us! Do, what we actually love to do.

Work Hard

The first answer to this question is by Don Pinkus. He was an Engineer at Facebook and now working on his own project. You can read his full story here.

You know what? It doesn’t matter if you’re working hard, put in your hundred percent; but nothing seems to move at all. Hard work is never wasted. One day or the other, you’ll surely see the results. But they would be reflected only when you ‘put’ in something.

Simply sitting back and relying on destiny to give you something isn’t and shouldn’t be an option. You would only yield results when you put in ‘efforts’.

Please read that timeline given by Don Pinkus, how he improved, how he worked upon his skills, how he never gave up and even resigned from his job at Facebook to work on his project! That’s certainly we should all do! Follow our passion.

Giving up should never be an option. Certain things might work for you; certain might not. But it’s very essential to keep on moving. And if you follow your passion, actually do what you love, trust me, there would be no looking back!

You would be always enjoying your work! Even ‘master’ was once a ‘beginner’. So, how he became master now?

Answer is quite simple, by keep on working and never giving up! We always have to start somewhere and at beginning we’ll come up with really terrible things, really bad ideas, work which would be ‘trash’ to everyone else. But that’s how you improve. Criticism should be always taken as a positive thing. It should be something to help you in shaping yourself. Improving upon yourself.

One thing to remember:

A College Degree is important but so is common sense. The world is full of Self-Taught Geniuses and Educated Fools.

-Michael Baisden

In the end, there’s no need to compare yourself with anyone, just try to be a better person than what you were yesterday. Keep working hard and never give up!

PS: For programmers, Don Pinkus have certain suggestions in his post, you can read it!


It’s getting hectic day by day


Glad that I took some time, to write here. My schedule is getting hectic day by day. Only 4-5 hours sleep everyday. I’m tired, very tired but one thing is going to happen sure shot. I’d like to die trying rather than giving up 🙂

My day starts with getting up early late in morning around 7:45 AM and then preparing to go rush to my college. It takes approx 2 hours in commuting in just one way. So, in my whole day I spend around 4 hours alone in traveling. Usual things happen in my college, mostly studying kind of wasting my time 😦

Though I liked that in this semester I would be studying really good subjects about the Core Computer Science, but all my excitement was drenched watching the pretty old syllabus. Never the less, I find some topics really interesting in College too. Those about Algorithms and DBMS are the best one out there. But I think Universities should focus more on practical approach rather than just teaching students how to learn mug up things.

The real learning curve begins when I reach home from college. Time is really absurd and I reach around 7 PM in the evening or sometimes later than that. I was regular in attending the DGPLUG classes, but this schedule is seriously killing me. Never the less, I try to get on with the logs if the class was there, or else I tend to do other things like doing home task given in the previous class.

Then the research work about the articles I’ve to write begins. The Geeky Way is facing a hard time now just because I take too much time to update it, but I try to put up a good post (may be long) so as to contribute some value rather than just focusing in increasing the post count.

Then I take some time to do some freelancing work, I had already taken (Now wouldn’t take anymore for sometime). Among all these things, I find myself standing awake in midnight. Usually, then I carry on with my other courseware and practicing the things I’ve learned in my training.

3 AM : Seriously?

Yes! It’s generally 3 AM when I would sleep.

Though I usually don’t find good resources to learn more, but when I do, I ensure to make the full use of it.

It’s not about learning to defeat someone, get a job or something. I learn because I love to learn about that stuff, and I share my knowledge because it’s meant to be shared.

PS: Everyone has got 24 hours in a day, how you make use of it, is what matters. If you tend to enjoy your whole day, and still wanting something extra achieved, you won’t. Because there’s no short-cut to success. You have to work hard for it. It’s meant to be earned.

Now time to complete my home task for the training.

Good Bye!
