Don’t get bored! Embrace new challenges

I always believed that as an individual, I could evolve and improve my skills only by embracing new challenges and experiencing new things – guess what?! I still believe this and I decided to share with you, what I consider a kind of interesting ongoing experience.

For about six months now, I’m working for ServerSitters, an outsourcing support company that offers awesome customer support for tens or maybe hundreds of companies and, yes, they do a great job. Even, the company is not %100 remote; I must say that I was amazed by the team communication and collaboration. When I first, started to work for them, it was pretty overwhelming because working for a company that offers outsourcing support services is like working for tens of other companies at the same time ( as you might expect, each company have different policies, terms, and even server configurations. )

To smoke or not to smoke

smoking-killsUnfortunately it’s not as easy at is sounds. I have almost 1 month since I quit smoking – why? – because I was not feeling good anymore. Along the way ( especially in the first 7 days ) I’ve had many thoughts to smoke a cigarette or at least a puff – guess what? I didn’t and I’m proud of me.

Maybe it doesn’t look like this, but unfortunately, tobacco kills. I’ve recently read an updated article from WHO that blew my mind. It looks tobacco kills up to half of its users – more than 7 million people each year and approximatively 800 000 of them are the results of exposure to secondhand smoke. What’s freaking me out is the fact that at this moment there are more than 1 billion smokers in the world.

Long time no … Swift :)

It’s been a while since my last post and the weird part is that I’ve haven’t been on a vacation or something 🙂 Actually, I’ve worked very hard on some personal projects – of course, I’ll share them with you, but let’s take it step by step.

I’m in a very mysterious way … let’s say addicted to gadgets, programming languages and any piece of code or any little thing that can make my life easier or automate something 🙂 – that’s one of the reasons why I started to learn Swift.

I don’t want to become a full-time Swift developer but I like to be familiar with the code, or at least to understand what’s happening there if I see some Swift code – based on how often Swift gets updated and improved, I really believe in the next years, this will become a ‘must know’ if you want to create something awesome 🙂

Delivering Happiness

That’s the title of a book I’m currently reading. I ordered the book a few days ago, and I just finished the first section of the book: Profits.

I must say that’s by far one of the most captivating, funny and inspiring books I’ve read in the last years.

It is a big difference between knowing the path and walking the path – just take a few minutes to thought on this, and I’m pretty sure you’ll end up at the same conclusion.

That’s how the book begins, and I’m sure you already recognized the quote from The Matrix.

The book talks about money and business in such a different way compared to others. Even if you don’t care about business, technology or shoes ( lol ), you’ll be drawn in by this American tale of how hard work, laziness, talent, and failure blend to create extraordinary things and experiences.
