If you have read my About Me section, you already know that I get bored very easily. Over time, I have realised that is a really good thing. Being in the technology profession for over 26 years, my antidote against boredom has been a restless thirst for learning all things new. As a reasonably inquisitive person (I have my limits too), I have made it a life habit to learn about things other than tech (which is a profession) to keep the magic alive. I love history, science, art, culture, music, movies – and I then bring all that back to technology and apply what I have gathered.
Which brings me to my other great quality – laziness I think Bill Gates was referring to me when he said ““I choose a lazy person to do a hard job. Because a lazy person will find an easy way to do it.” – Fact Check – no record of Bill Gates actually saying it – https://quoteinvestigator.com/2014/02/26/lazy-job/.
This is another sterling trait because I am always looking for the easiest and most common sensical way of doing anything. Innovation has to be based on the burning need to improve things and make them easy to accomplish. Enter Laziness – the perfect catalyst.
I would also urge you to sit through my TED Talks – what it lacks in finesse, it does make up for in good content, even though I say so myself.
If all of this tickles your curiosity, please feel free to reach out for a conversation over coffee (or tea or Red Bull). I do work as an advisor to large enterprises and startups, create engaging content (podcast, video, the written word) and speak at select gatherings.
And if you just have some feedback critiquing my blog, am happy to hear from you about that as well.
