Personal Development

They said we are in the age of speed, anything that suddenly shows in your mind you can just go to Google or Wikipedia and got alot of information about it, any book or item you like with few clicks on Amazon it will be yours, but this does not applied on your personal Development. It is something that need time and patient, you can't clime the ladder with one step you need to take it step by step. To know how is your personal development is going with you so far, bring a paper and go back to 5 years ago or back to the 1st year when you began your 1st work. remembered yourself on that time and what you are now… and see how much progress you have. The following are few tips they help you in your personal development journey.

  1. “When the student is ready, the teacher will appear”, it is a Chinese proverb; did you tried alot of tips and hints, back to my perfect diet or to waking up early, you tried to stick with these steps but you failed or you red a book about self development but you failed to followed up. This is because you are not ready yet, try it later and you find it is working. So prepare yourself to meet the teacher.
  2. Don't be sad if everything is not going well. Not everything we plan for will work or gonna success. Sometimes it fails, sometimes you feel that you lost everything. Don't let it make you down, learn from your mistakes and make it in your side.
  3. Don't let others bring you down. Everyone has different goals, different environment, not every goal is suitable for everybody; if you hear from somebody why you are wasting your time, don't listen because he/she has different point view that's all. Remember, in Personal development there are no right or wrong way of doing things, it is different from one person to another
  4. Celebrate your victories, back to my post on rewarding yourself. This will help you to continue in your Personal development and it is on of the most powerful tool for motivation

Prioritize your life

Do your job or position affects your mentality or your way of thinking, I guess the answer is Yes even if you don't know how.

In software Development when the software requirements analysis step is begin, you list all the feature and start putting what is in and what is out depending on different criteria. This step is very critical because if you add a feature that has alot of risk it may lead your project to a fail. What I learned as a chemical engineer how to do the Prioritization (Classified things based on their priorities). I am use this technique in my working in IT but also in my life. Sometimes you need to do Prioritization to success. It is very simple, start by drawing 2×2 grid, name the x-axis Difficulty (All bad things are represented here such as time, risk, cost, effort, complexity, etc..) the Y-axis is the Importance (all good things are represented here such as saving time, revenue, benefits, etc…) and start put things on this grids based on these criteria Difficulty vs. Importance. at the end of the day you will have all thing Prioritize from High to low.. Isn't amazing… I saved your day 🙂

It will never learn

Today while I am going to my work, I was listening to Angham new Album كل ما نقرب لبعض  (Each time we get closer to each others), there was a song I stopped on it مبتعلمش (It will never learn); the song is talking about her heart how is thinking of him all the time, and each time she said enough until she saw him again, she forget everything and forgive him… I was thinking what is the common thing between this and if we are let us say we want to stop something and each time we try but we fail, for example trying to lose weight, after a while we never learn and on front of food we eat like… or we will stop thinking of doing shopping and again after few minutes in front of the mall or market we lose control etc… I think about it alot, and I guess I find the answer, it is Love or obsession or passion call it whatever you want.. She love him alot and she obsessed about him, we are in "love" in food, we have obsession with shopping etc.. But what I still didn't find the answer for it, is while we are in love or obsessed with something, anything we can't stop it or it is hard for us to stop it, and let it learn and let it graduate!!!!

What you own soon owns you?

I like this phrase, it reflects the real situation.. Before 10 years almost zero people own mobile phone, now almost everybody has one… can you live without it… So you own it 1st then it owns you… the 1st pack of cigar. you own, now it owns you… the car, the TV, internet, etc… What you own soon owns you, so be careful what you choose to own because sooner it will be the owner of you!!!

حفلة تخريج

بما انو احنا في موسم حفلات التخرج عجبني مقال لاحمد الزعبي في جريدة الرأي 24/6/2007 بعنوان حفلة تخرج
درجت العادة عند جمهور الخرّيجين ، أن يطلق الطالب لحيته قبل حفل تخرّجه بأسبوع وأن
يرتدي ملابسه الرثّة، ويعزف عن تمشيط شعره أو تنظيف أسنانه ، أو الاستحمام الطارىء،
وذلك ليزهو يوم الإحتفال أكثر..في الواقع ليس ثمة علاقة بين اطلاق اللحية والزهو
بعد حلقها ..كل ما في الأمر ان الناس يعتادون على وباشته وسوء منقلبه على مدار
أسبوع أو أكثر ، ثم تتفاجأ يوم الاحتفال بعودته الى ما كان عليه..و الفارق بين
الوباشة والوضع الطبيعي هذا يفسّر على أنه زهو فيقال فلان مزهي أو منوّر
..
كما درجت العادة أن يصبح الخريج دمثاً مع أخوته ومطيعاً لوالديه وزلمة
دار حقيقي قبيل تخرّجه بساعات قليلة، حيث يتبرّع بنقل البربيش عن الأشجار في يوم
السقاية رغم حرارة الجو ،ويقوم بكرتنة كتبه ودفاتره ورفعها الى السدّة وإصلاح كوع
المجلى المغلق بسبب ظروف الجلي السيئة ..واستقبال الضيوف اللي ع غفلة ، بعد ان كان
يرفض القيام بكل هذه الأعمال عندما كان يحمل رقماً جامعياً..
في يوم
الاحتفال ، يصرّ بشكل يثير الاستغراب على حضور جميع عمّاته من مناطق سكناهن
المختلفة ، وعلى ضرورة احضار جدته ، وتزويدها بحبّة تحت اللسان لتتمكن من الجري
لمسافات طويلة ،كما يتحسّر على اغتراب جاره وعدم تمكنه من حضور الحفلة ، مفرطاً في
استخدام حنّيته المتدفقة هذه. أثناء الحفلة يقوم كبير القوم بترتيب العائلة الممتدة
على مدرّج التخريج واختبار موقع آمن للنسوة المرافقة ، بينما تصر جدّة الخرّيج
بالرقص سادة من غير موسيقى أثناء بروفه ترتيب الخريجين، كما تقوم خالته أم يحيى
بإطلاق زغرودة فاشلة من على منصة الزغاريد عزتها لــ حسّها المطبّق مما دعاهم بشحذ
همّة ابنة عم خال زوجة ابن عمّة أبوه بإطلاق زغرودة أخرى تبيّض الوجه عوضاً عن
زغرودة أم حسّ مطبّق ..إحدى قريبات الخرّيج تخرج من حقيبتها حبّة من شريط دواء
تعطيها للجّدة التي بدورها تضعها تحت لسانها لضبط دقّات القلب أثناء
الرقص..
في المساء ، يؤكّد الخريج أن رئيس الجماعة قدّ شدّ على يده دون غيره
من الطلاّب وأنه نظر اليه بإعجاب شديد وقال له مبروك ، فتفسّر الأم هذه الخصوصية
بالسلام قائلةً : لأنه شافك مزيون ..
ورق التوفي موزّع على سجادة المضافة ،
والمحارم المستعملة تحت الفرشات ،وروب التخرج مشلوح في زاوية الغرفة ، يطل ولد
مجهول الهوية من غير بنطلون يضع حلوة توفي مفتوحة بيد أمه التي يتبين لاحقاً أنها
عمة الخريج، ثم يغادر الغرفة مسرعاً ، صينية بها شراب محلول تطوف على الجالسين
للمرة الرابعة … يسأل الأب ابنه : وين جدّتك؟ فيردّ الخريج: مسبحتها هون – كدليل
على تواجد الحجّة- بجوز راحت تتوضأ للمغرب..
المهم يتوافد المهنئون ، ويبقى
الخريج في غيبوبة فرح وأمنيات كبيرة تدور بين عينيه مثل رقاص الساعة الذي لا
يهدأ..في اليوم التالي يصحو عارياً من حرير الفرح ، يصحو وصوت هدير البطالة يمر من
بين أصابعه..
 

From Chemical engineer to System analyst

I've been asked this questions zillion of times, Why you work in IT while you are a chemical engineer ?!!!! and people keep express deep sadness how I lost 5 years studying something I didn't use it :-(, or they said to me, do they force you to study chemical engineer, or your score didn't give you a chance to study other than Ch.E. the Answer is non of the above….I had a chance to study medicine, pharmacy and any branch in engineering but I love Chemical Engineering and still in love with it… Without it I will not reach to this position right now!!! I didn't waste 5 years studying something I don't like. If you are good enough you can benefit from everything in this world and make it on your side… Later on you will see how chemical engineering helping me in my career development… So next time when somebody asking me, i will not answer, I will tell them visit my website and you will find the answer 🙂

Back to Japanese language

I stopped learning Japanese from 4 years ago. Yesterday I started my 1st Japanese lessons 🙂 again.. It was very simple because I already took this before… I know, you will ask why I am taking this, my answer is just for fun nothing more…

Note: Above word is how my name written in Japanese 🙂

Make a wish!!!

I borrowed from my friend Aladdin his lamp and put it on my blog to allow everybody make a wish, only one wish don't cheat 🙂 "More than one; All will be deleted ;-)".. So start wishing now…

My wish is: "I wish that everybody can see their bad habits and faults so no one will talk about others any more…"

Draw your zone

Yesterday while I am driving back home, I saw the Fastlink sign about the new offer (Draw your zone and talk…,"7added Man62etak"). I will not talk about their offer but I like the words, Draw your zone… I guess everyone need to draw his/her zones while communicate with others. If you just do few sketches in your head how these zone should be.. You will got shocked!!! You will find the radius for these circles varies depend with whom you communicate. You will have very small radius you can even ignore it and you will find long radius bigger than the diameter of the earth. Why this would be good? because if you don't draw your zone and area, the big diameter guy will think he/she is close, then imagine what will happend… I already start drawing and I almost finished, but if you still not started yet; don't waste time start drawing now!!!!!
