Its all about passion: Round 1

Anything you do around your life, be it work or private is dead and dull if you don't have the passion. If you don't breathe fire you're not hot. No way Lady, you aint hot! Many of us remain and will continue to remain passive players. Receivers. Commentators. Just the dorks on the sidelines. Well if that is what you choose, we ssssslong sucker!

Why do you think a programmer (who really rocks) feels like a king? Why do you think a sysadmin rock? Well its because they do something more than just mundane things like maintaining/subverting code or monitoring OSs like janitors. They do something really cool. Really breakthrough.

I was reading an oldish article at HBR and saw a great article on "Change Management and Change Agents". A regular change management has a great potential to suck and die. Eventually its the fastest way to lose clients. We'll talk about that tomorrow (when I'm done collecting thought).

Today its about passion. I saw and caught my 4 year old on tape singing the Last Song from Foo Fighters. I was thrilled. Thrilled because he wants to play the guitar and sing already! [Sorry couldn't help it, I'm just a proud dad :-)]

So its about thrills. Its about that flight! Its about the kicks. Its just about everything but sulking back in your seat and squinting your nose.

Well check out what Wendy's passion is. Amazing collection this. Kris talks about the art of being passionate. And Kathy can just not stop talking about it.

Anything in your life. Be it music, gym, sports, games, computers, work just about anything. Bung some life into it. Go ahead and get liberated (Not just because its 5th May).

Take care

Redhot Future Of IT Part I :Marketing yourself as IT professional

I had promised about the "RedHot IT Future Series" and so we discuss here how you should market yourself EFFECTIVELY as an IT professional in this new (and dangerous) web age! Web is the place where you're a hero today and villain tomorrow. While there are lots of professionals who are active on the web, not all are enjoying a good reputation as they got "personal" with others and got into a cockfight. The passive IT professional has nothing to lose but nothing to gain at all!

I know "marketing" might seem as a greasy term but the idea is to have the truth about you out there. You know you're a good person and your family knows that you're really smart person but the rest of the world doesn't!

So the question is how do I market myself on the web as a true "nouveau IT professional". A guy who companies will be tempted to pick up the phone as say "Hey, we wanna talk with you. Can you fly over to Palo Alto (or Guatemala or Johan…
