Practical Reviews Theories

Uncertainty?

As human beings we assume a lot, but realising after it’s not the case anymore.

We accept those that have worked longer in employment to know more.

But when we talk about agendas, we realised that’s not the case.

Opening up and talking about topics we enjoy can show how in depth knowledge we may know and also highlight to those that may didn’t know.

But it’s a start.

By accepting they don’t know raises awareness to those that can teach. Be open to understand why we do certain things in the way we do.

There are concept designs, there are many theories on different agendas, then there’s the practical side of implementation with time limits.

The puzzle is knowing each strength and to pull together our minds to solve existing problems in the manner of time.

Continuous reviews draws continuous improvements, adds value across the board.

Change is unavoidable, but can be greatly rewarded in time.

Fascinating or some what frustrating?

So many courses from different providers.

Which ones are politically correct?

Spending time, involves patience.

As we grow, time feels short.

It’s not always a simple as it looks.

Sure you can follow…

But there are obstacles along the way.

The kind that are not transparent in guidance.

Lessons learned, it will never be.

Acknowledging this…

The cycles of improvement are never-ending.

So the main thing to take from this…

You’re in control, you can’t please all, but you can align the balance with the majority.

Simplify processes not just for yourself, but for everyones case.

With simplicity comes flexible, growth, speed and expansion.

Navigate the play field.

Be your best in the given circumstances.

Die trying, you may get lucky.

Find Yourself

Spare a moment?

Teach if you can.

Invest in some time.

Learn as much as you can.

Perhaps…

Share a thought together.

Maybe if you’re lucky…

Trade a skill for another?

Who knows what you’ll might find.

From entry level to fullstack…

There’s always something to learn.

Call it what you want.

The cycle of learning forms teaching.

Imagine and reiterate.

The above with the below.

Apply methods with different contexts.

I have a theory, but correct me if I’m wrong…

Working in the Web realm is fascinating, but does have it’s tolerance.

Balancing many factors that one may not be aware of.

Add that with business needs and growing demands from order of hierarchy.

The cycle of success continues with continuous learning, finding, trialing new tech stacks to building and improving software architecture.

Driven by passion and ambition to self learn, is all that was needed.

Without a software degree it’s pretty hard to summarise.

That you may know more then you think you know, but then again you only know more when you are able to investigate and trial these new ideas.

Must thank those who understand and give the time to let one manage their own.

Lessons learnt and upheld adopting the new, due to valid reasons keeping tech stack consistent for upgrading and maintaining purposes with limited resources.

It’s time to let go of the small and think bigger. Push those boundaries. Invest in the new to increment features and aim to replace the old.

First to explore, first to trial, but wait a second, we have a team with individual mindsets and abilities to do the same or similar.

Teach, train and mentor maybe a new territory for one, but not often looked upon due to time management in many businesses.

So there’s concerns in the blind spots. Noted and mentioned to many, but how and who will address it?

Correct me if I’m wrong, but it’s up to the individuals in the team to embrace the journey together.

Setting aside some time and pushing back on the frequent demands.

Better yet, let the order of hierarchy set some time to continuous review information before passing down the chain of commands.

With continuous review of information, refinement of order become transparent, data become valid and less likely to consume time rectified.

While from the bottom continuing with the business needs in a regular pattern that aligns the learning goals, teaching one another, which is one of many challenging business objectives overlooked.

Certainly a challenge this year, but appreciate able to work in the current conditions.

The point.

If you invest in a little bit more time, you get a whole lot more in return.

Take this as my experience.

If you take a look closer you will see patterns.

Keeping things generic as possible offers flexibility and new ideas.

Although time does come at a cost, think of it as a return on investment.

When you are finally done, release and track your feedback.

The jigsaw to the feedback will be crucial.

With the feedback, improve those negatives to positive.

You then reiterate and evaluate, eventually receiving the cycle of success.

Statistics will show, performance will grow.

Be patient, calm and collective.

One at a time is the focal point.

There is a journey where we are all involved.

Making the end users experience greater together then the previous or current.

Love to hear your thoughts and comments. Please leave them below, thank you.

What’s driving me to do better?

These images below and my previous posts… the good memories and the bad… the hole in the soul… the missing jigsaw to my realisation to life commitments.

This image is compilation of photographs taken at university in 2008, a few days after hearing the closest person I knew had passed away. This was one of my grandmothers who was like another mother at heart, my mother’s mother in context. The series of photographs captured my feelings and thoughts at the time when in split emotion realising I couldn’t make it home to pay my respects and help my parents straight away at the time of studying.

My parents are business owners meaning shopkeepers running newsagent from 5.30am-10pm without any breaks 7 days a week. Now it shuts at 9pm, although there’s always the odd person banging on the shop front to get served during late nights or early mornings, but we just don’t answer as my parent do enough hours throughout the day. Businesses like these used to be a backbone of thriving economy till internet and the supermarkets came to play. Longer hours is a must and a standard normality of lifestyle for most people who live in the UK.

So during this period I had a university project that involved making artist books, which I took to a personal level wanting to show how much I cared about both worlds, the things going on around back home while wanting to do well at university.

This was the result…

Some serious steady hands and being patiently calm. A typography project with dual material, a lightweight plastic film with a poem soldered through it and the other with the same poem carved into heavy stone tiles with a scalpel. The plastic film and the stone tiles were conceptualised as the soul and body of my grandmother who were mentioned throughout the poem.

Not only did it happen once, but twice in the following year with my father’s mother. My father’s parents were living in India and my father had to go visit straight away. My other grandmother who I only ever saw twice, once when an infant and again during end of my GCSE period.

By then my heart completely sank and I wasn’t in the best fit of minds to continue my degree, but by chance my university mates and tutors helped me around at the time. It was also my first time being independent living outside my home for 4 years too at the time, so homesickness was in the mix.

Thinking from an opposite view, I now get to see both grandfathers pretty much every few months or days. My mother’s father lives with my uncle and aunt and my father’s father with us. Sadly both are not feeling any better in terms of health, so we all try to do what we can to help around. I believe family values are important and that we must step up when in need of help.

Now a days, I visit my blog every so often to remind myself of the past and how I’ve overcome this and encouraged to do better, remove the negatives in life and turn them into positives!

Life for me has completely changed, more responsibilities is a must. I work for small agency that involves a lot more work, but I like the challenge. It also keeps me focused learning new skills, understanding workflows, technologies, implement them into the office and encourage to change old habits into new improvements. Currently I am working on tightening current client website securities and revamping our company website, both pretty much needs doing urgently while time is ticking away.

I still haven’t forgotten the post that’s due about my career progress I mentioned a few posts ago and my recent post about privacy. Right now, I’m just stretched out with all sorts around me, so I will see how it goes from here.
