VALUABLE LESSONS: AM I ADDICTED WRITER?

We all are addicted to something that might ruining us.

Sometimes those addictions, which makes you felt happy/satisfied, that is where the problem starts. Particular habit or set of habits will store in your mind that command you to do every single day to make you happy/satisfy.

I started realizing these addictions and reading over the last just couple of days, I started coming to the conclusion, whether you addiction is with good intent or bad intent is quite dangerous too.

I think, I said few more times in my past posts. When I started blogging in the initial times, every day at 07:30 PM, I decided to write. My thought, whatever but I wanna write. I said to myself from the first post, I should not miss not even a single day, at any cost, at any moment.

I feel great when I was keep on writing, sometimes when I back to my hometown. I write while traveling. Feels too good. Sometimes, work pressure, circumstances seems too untidy. I could not pause my writing. Badly, I pushed it. Badly. Most of the times, I could not able to come up with the content. I pushed and forced my brain. Content aroused. Just pushing and gushing, sometimes makes be bit embraced and pain too. I wasn’t thinking at that time, am I writing with the flow or am I addicted “to write every day for the sake of dopamine ingredient”.

When the days goes along with my writings. I do have a quite a bit wider approach towards writings. I select a topic and get into bit deeper.

Am I searching inside and outside of my mind and body to “just write” in an addictive manner?

Or

Am I thinking and deciding very well to deliver contents in a good manner?

I started having this catastrophe thought, am I addictive to writing?

I think, naturally every writer stretch his/her mind. That’s fine. I am not exceptional. But by letting yourself, the flow, to keep writing. That doesn’t mean you must write every single day. No more excuses. Nothing.

To me as an upcoming writer, if my reason is rationale, fine. I pause myself and once I get into the flow of writing. I do write and my flow continuous.

I knew that writing every day is very important. But your state of mind is saying to pause for a while?

Just pause it.

I asked myself when I took terrible one week break due to burnout and sleep deprivation.

What if, my addictions leads to stop my writing?

What if, my addictions leads to stop my natural creativity with regards to writing?

What if, I could not make come up with the on that particular day to write?

I sabotage, myself.

That is not okay at all for my profession. I should have to prepare and research for the content which I had chosen.

I understood, nothing to worry. Just recover and allow yourself the flow of writing. Do not push, you must write. Don’t get into the addictive mode.

Note down every content and just be prepare and do it as good as.

I wanna be gradual writer (I am a rationale writer too).

With respect.

VALUABLE LESSONS: WHAT AM I SUPPOSED TO SAY TO THE UPCOMING WRITERS?

Again there is one more valuable lesson: Yesterday, on LinkedIn, I had a conversation with a Signaling Engineer, Ashish pradhan. This gentleman asked me in a professional manner,

I want to learn about writing and make it my professional career, could you plz guide me.

Immediately, I said “Yes”. After a moment, I started thinking, what should I have to guide to the upcoming writers? Although, I thought for a second, I just writing over the last just two years, is it required to guide someone?

Then, I decided, I do have to something to say, something valuable, a valuable lesson,

Brutal fact is; my mistakes, my pitfalls, not editing after writing. So, I am ready to guide someone. I would love to share my experience and ready to say about my realistic lesson

I knew myself very well as a writer, I am not better in writing, but I do have a good writing with very good consistency and with openheartedness, I would share valuable information, stories, quotes and books too.

I remember very well about the mistakes I made as a writer. I took few notes on writing from those who guided me and even from books too.

Here I wanna sort it and then I need to deliver to him.

I started to deliver without any self-esteem about my mistakes and lessons. I completely decided to write.

I started by saying,

Hello Mr Ashish,

Great to connect with you. Again my extreme apologize. The reply was delayed by a day to you. I felt bad. But I am in extreme burnout and sleep deprivation.

Sorry to start with my personal story. It could be a lesson for you.

I am just, just been writing almost 2 years to the public readers by WordPress blog. So far I have written just 650+ posts. I have a huge and deep hesitation to show-off my writings to anyone when I was a diary writer from 2006-2019. I just learned I should come up and start writing. Let others guide you. Even more, if someone pointed out your mistakes. I will take it as “Constructive Criticism Accepted”.

Here, my lesson, foremost I would like to say to you is, please start writing right now. Today. I am deeply and badly struggling as a writer. Still, you could notice grammatical mistakes or editing part is completely missing in my blog. But I decided to be an editor too and started learning and simultaneously editing my past posts too.

No, there is nothing known as a good time to write or once you learned the 100% grammar or once your mind strikes something innovative idea to write.

I don’t think anything works. If it works you or someone, fine. Please Go-Ahead.

But you should start writing. Even if you have or not grammatical skills/innovative ideas.

A writer supposed to write. Even things aren’t working out.

Setting a target is fine. Example; setting “I will write minimum 250 words everyday”.

Just keep writing.

Read and write simultaneously. If you read for one hour and you should write for an hour.

Whether Fiction/Non-fiction. You can decide.

I would sincerely encourage you to start a blog and deliver it to the public. Or please write an article for a newspaper/magazine. Let them notice. Most probably, you could get guidance. I got in the initial point of times. Even a couple of week before. I got a guest post to my blog.

Not finally, have a purpose before you write. Please consider my point, do not write for a click or by giving content strategies.

Have a morality before you write.

You can start with a story or you say something before you share something valuable information.

1. Read more and widely.

2. Write. Keep writing.

3. After writing and keep reading what you wrote. If you could found any mistakes/any editing part is required. Please do check and rectify.

4. Read several times what you wrote.

5. Give it to your mentor or you well-wisher to read what you wrote.

6. Please don’t give up. If things aren’t working out.

Until things works, you need to keep writing.

For a writer, there is nothing called perfection. You should learn to be a better version on every piece which you are yet to write.

With respect.

SKILLS NEEDED TO LEARN FOR 2021 AND MOREOVER, FOREVER.

Not only in 2021, forever for the future.

This is my “Aaahaa” moment for me as a writer. Simultaneously, I started understanding, just over the last 2 or 3 months, don’t be too ruthless to acquire skills. Have a look, what is the requirement?

Consciously writing, I am not blind-folded by the skills acquisition. But let’s have a look, what is going on and what are the changes required from 2020 to 2021 beyond at some point forever too. And what we need to change.

Whether it could work/apply to your profession or you could have a wider passion to learn something more skills.

I do have some procedure to start when it comes to sharing the skills that I started doing every year or from my most of the recent posts. These are skills which I gonna share from few multiple sources.

I purely hate to put a word by stating, “Disclaimer” as a writer to my readers. I more often would sincerely suggest and fairly, even more wisely to my readers. I am not disrupting my readers by giving the skills. If you (readers) in your profession is, so far, too good. Fine. I congratulate. Please Go-Ahead.

If you are interested to look further the skills below which I sorted. Please have a look.

Here we need to look, this era, digital and data economy are far more booming. I have an opinion to my readers, there are some of the skills that we should learn, not from the strategic point of view. Certain hard and softs skills sometimes works in our profession or in any vantage point in our profession.

To me personally, the above scenario has been working. Along with my sincerity in writing, precisely, I do engage more and more in Economics, Entrepreneurship, Linguistics, Statistics and Data Science and Machine Learning. Here I’m not gonna say most of the skills I must learn. Rather some of the required skills/mandatory skills that supposed to work such as communication, writing, critical thinking, leadership, collaborativeness, intensive research, data handling, math and statistics and programming.

Not finally, I would say we should have the innate mind-set/skill is being open-minded and adapt to learn whatever new stuff and arising critical questions and giving smart solutions is the most required too.

The reality is, I too deeply struggle from the aforementioned lines.

So, we should take a project/case studies and we need to apply the above skills in order to evaluate our own results. I think, this is the practical way we can start from our own companies/organizations by asking voluntarily or if you are a freelancer, please make your own initiative.

All right. Skills comes here.

I will paste the sources links down below. I would sincerely encourage you all to read full post and visit further.

The research surveyed 23,000 respondents and uncovered the skills which organisations are most in need of over the next 12 months. These are:

Communication and interpersonal skills (needed by 55%)

Ability to adopt change (53%)

Problem-solving (45%)

Flexibility and adaptability (43%)

People management skills (41%)

Despite these skills being most in demand by employers, they differ considerably to the skills which employees want to develop in order to progress their career. These are:

People management skills (37%)

Communication and interpersonal skills (29%)

Critical thinking (29%)

Negotiation (27%)

Judgement and decision-making skills (26%)

Only communication and interpersonal skills make it into both lists, highlighting that there is a clear mismatch between the skills organisations are in need of and those employees want to develop.

VALUABLE LESSONS: TERRIBLE BREAK IN MY BLOGGING.

I still have no idea, where to start the lessons that I have learned over a week.

It took a week to back and blog and started focusing on the works that I had been doing so far.

Couple of days before, I had a 9 hours travel from noon to night to visit my room where I stayed. Looks pretty ugly. Because I am quite happy to visit my place (my room) where I worked and my favourite place to study and the environment and everything.

After opening the door, I could not able to enter. Not even a step. Cockroaches were roamed very well and finally died even more spider conquered and well settled.

Oh almighty. But thank you almighty. My books are absolutely clean in my wardrobe. But newspapers and my whiteboard seems too nasty to clean.

Finally, I cleaned it in five hours in a determined way. I haven’t slept the whole night. Again, by the next day, back to my hometown. No sleep, while travelling. Just thinking about what I forgot. Precisely, which book I forgot. Keep on thinking.

Then the next five consecutive days, I could not sleep that leads to blur on my each and every work. I just start the day by writing journal (Some point, I miss, But I do write separately every night) or reading or watching a documentary. I could not give my full attention to any of the particular activity. That caused over the last 7 days. Severe sleep deprivation.

Yesterday, my eyes was uncomfortable. I just look into my mirror. I, eye gazed myself and noticed down to my eyes looks swelling. Very bad to look at my face.

Then I started a bit by bit and started learning and thinking deeper.

What’s wrong with me?

Why I again started not follow my 6 hours of my sleep schedule?

Just last two days, I was trying to write. There is no clarity within myself. My mind just roaming. I do have few contents to start. But I could not focus at all.

I said to myself, I should I have proper 24-hours schedule. If not sometimes, that’s okay. But not too suffering.

Even I am writing this content in the mid-night only.

I should change my time of blogging. In order to smooth and consistent process in my future blogs.  

Why am I writing my personal story here?

The lessons are, the 24 hours-cycle in our human body and our productivity supposed to in chronological way.

Some of them who are doing night-shifts differs.

I would sincerely suggest to all of my respected readers, having 6 hours of perfect sleep and work 75% productively in 18 hours. Remaining 25% of 18 hours is the leisure times.

To me, I totally stumbled here in this process over a week.

Ladies and gentleman, my extreme apologize to “the most respected readers”.

With respect.

LET’S FACE-OFF IN 2021.

The only way to fight against all the odds is to confront it. If the hesitation occurs or if we are in deep regret about what might happen on this or that situation. I think, our mind would collapse.

Just don’t leave the stuff simply by neglecting it. Just open your mind to see what are the bold possibilities that I can do? Rather than being lethargic.

Until now from my life lessons, I started stopping not only negative thoughts but also some unusual thoughts.

Why am I writing this content?

Over the last couple of days, I was ferocious about a particular issue. Believe me, I was too exhausted and evening I could not able to worry even a bit more about that issue?

I just tired mentally.

I gave a sudden pause.

Seriously, I have no idea. What to do further?

I drew two rules.

1. Just face-off.

2. Leave it. Do not care at all.  

If readers supposed to choose anyone of the above two rules. Yes please, they could decide depends on the situation.

I would suggest, when I got two rules, I started getting clarity. The first option seems challenging and it captivate me to prove it whether you are good/worthy enough to handle this issue. The second options also sounds wise, if number one rule is not working out. Just go for rule number 2.

It is also better to leave that issue. Just go forward and proceed further. I think sometimes you need to step-aside too. In order not to prove, but “never-mind attitude”.

Just, just leave it.

Nothing will gonna affect you, if you choose number 2.

Actually, nobody cares whether you face-off/step-side. They may or may not. But the only way to improve yourself is, you need to know what you truly want, not simply expecting what someone think.

In some scenarios it will work, just step aside from everything. If you wanna improve in your life. Just draw a plan and improve. Don’t compete with anyone. Set a target and work until gets reached. Whenever you made a plan and proceeding for actions. Just do it. Beat your target.  No matter, whomever says what?

We each one of us has a goal and to-do-something.

Succeeded or failed that is ultimately secondary. But the actions and approach you done that makes you goose bump. Joyous moments and a sense of accomplishment really makes you to move forward.

With respect.

VALUABLE QUOTES: FIVE QUOTES WILL DRIVES ME IN 2021.

  1. Have a self-talk by saying, “Far enough and fair enough”.
  2. Keep calm and think deeply.
  3. Just don’t show off.
  4. Find your balance.
  5. Deliver something good to the living creatures.

Just two more, please.

  • Read, read and read.
  • Explore, explore and explore.

Some of the quotes are new but some of them also comes from the lessons that I had learned in the last year, which I am supposed to implement in this upcoming year.

I started thinking a bit more deeply over just an hour about what kind of quotes should I able to follow, not only for success, success and success. But in order to learn every moment, and to live the life wisely.

Ladies and gentleman, so every year, I deliberately set myself some of the quotes not only for my mind-set also to my heart too. Along with your strong mind-set, you need a good and strong heart too.

Respected readers,

Please have look at the above quotes, if you find useful and purposeful to follow all or anyone. Go-Ahead.

This 2021 must be an important year all of us across the globe. I felt sluggish to re-iterate about pandemic. But we should learn to protect our self and we should learn to help others too. Catastrophic so far. We need to be more reliance than last year. We should not give up at any cost.

Take care of your mind and body. Be active. Deliver values.

With respect.

VALUABLE LESSONS: LAST DAY OF THE YEAR.

Foremost, Happy prosperous and peaceful year to my respected readers.

Ladies and gentlemen, most probably, today is the last day of the year. Because at some places, the New Year has already begun.

Brutally, this year, most of the months ends with lockdown. Pandemic ruined people and their jobs and Standard of Living.

Let’s make a humanitarian move by helping one and another and spreading altruism and delivering food and water to those who suffer might be beside your home or wherever you see people suffering.

Let’s be extremely cautious about disease and infodemic.

Let’s keep our body, our home, and environment well clean.

Let’s make our own individual initiative to control this pandemic and infodemic.

When it comes to learning, this year most of the people would got some extra time to learn about what you love/what is required to learn in order to sustain and grow your prefession.

Well, let’s remember lessons that we learned in this 2020 and the resolutions which we created in 1st of January 2020 much need to revise once again. So far the progress and the results about the particular work or several work. I see myself those lessons are wise lessons. Those wise lessons are the brighter steps to the 2021. Those judgements gives the clarity on the upcoming work that you are decided to do in 2021.

  • Hope matters.
  • Bold moves matters. Even though, the tasks and decisions seems scary.  
  • Determined efforts much more needed.
  • Calculated predictions matters. Please don’t be too calculative or please don’t make any vague calculations. Have a look at the progress, and then come to the calculations. You will understand, how far your calculations gonna work and also you in the “tipping point” you could do some adjustments. The most relevant example is how you solve the Rubik’s cube.

I started habit of saying this year gonna be the prosperous/peaceful year.

Let’s have a strong beliefs and principles no matter what.

Let’s read, write, talk and the share values for the humanity across the globe.

With respect.

VALUABLE LESSONS: LESSONS TO LEARN FROM SIR TIM BERNERS-LEE.

I don’t think any introduction required for Sir. But something I would love to say about Sir.

I am inspired by Sir Tim’s generosity. When I started reading about Sir Tim’s, History of Web from webfoundation.org. I noticed two lines, As the web began to grow, Tim realised that its true potential would only be unleashed if anyone, anywhere could use it without paying a fee or having to ask for permission.

I started reading a bit more about Sir Tim and visiting https://www.w3.org/ and https://theodi.org/ Open Data Institute and watching YouTube videos and decided to buy a valuable book too.

https://www.w3.org/People/Berners-Lee/Weaving/images/weaving.jpg

The lessons I’m gonna share from valuable source too. TED blog. We all knew very well that, how TED Talks impacts us in our life. Over the last just 4 years, I have been watching TED Talks quite seriously. I started understanding how every speaker delivers his/her own way of narrating their “art of story telling” and giving a “purposeful talk”.

Here, some lessons from Berners-Lee and his twenty-something baby, the World Wide Web.

1. Harness Your Own Frustration.

2. Involve Others Early.

3. Don’t Stop.
