…how important the early start for a great carrer is and probably one of the best examples to understand this is to check what DJ Danny Avila does. Take a look at who this guy is, what he does and you will probably understand what I am talking about…
I was on a holiday and I was checking my e-mail at 4 AM in the lobby of the hotel. The receptionist came to me and ask me why I was working at 4 AM? Wasn’t that crazy and wasn’t I supposed to just relax and forget about everything at least during these days while I was there? That made me remember one thing – how much I love my work and how amazing it is that even when I was supposed to get some rest I was doing something that I love! I also thought about the opposite though – isn’t it sad that there are so many people that wait exactly for their holidays just to leave “all that work”? Isn’t it said that these people are actually doing that same thing 5 days a week for almost the whole year?…
That moment made me smile and reminded me one thing – how much I love what I do…
I am now already doing jogging for more than 8 years and last year I thought it’s time to challenge myself a bit more! This October I will go for the half-marathon race in Sofia! … and as you can see from the photo above – preparation already started!
Wish me good luck!
…regretting. That is a really interesting topic to me and I am really fascinated to talk with older people than me and ask them:
What do you regret for?
Interestingly, the answers do not vary and most of them are:
- Did not spend enough time with my family!
- Did not spend enough time with my closest people!
- Did not do what I love doing!
Think about that…
It’s strange, but I’m loving the fact that my post for T-SQL Tuesday #42 will be so close and related to my previous one for #tsql2sday. So what is technology “X” that had influence on my development in the last years? Hm… let me tell you a story about a technology and a skill that I was relying heavily on(and I still am…) in the last couple of years and that led me to where I am now! Continue reading
…are we actually living OUR life? And I ask myself this question very often – every single time I see or feel that someone actually lives the life of someone else or at least wants to do it. What I want to know though is WHY? Why are so many people not living THEIR OWN life?
…impressing a future employer with a diploma(only). My personal view on the topic is quite extreme (although I know that all extremes are harmful), but that is probably coming from my experience as both student and someone who teaches university students. My opinion is that diploma does not mean anything! I mean seriously! I really (if I am the employer) don’t care whether someone is coming from Sofia University or Cambridge. I just don’t! The only thing that I (and the business) care is how this person can win me money. And yes – that’s sound a bit rude, but… get over it, because that is how things work in the real world!

I have just finished the listening(yes, not the reading, I am learning while I am driving also) the book Grown Up Digital by Don Tapscott and I wanted to do a quick blog post, because I am bit worried! I am a bit worried, because I am not sure that companies(not to mention education) can get their heads around the change that is coming (ah… sorry, that already came!). This book is all about the so called Generation Ys (which is us, oh, by the way) and how they (we, me including!) see the things in a bit different way, let’s say… Continue reading
I want to finish this post for 20 minutes! Let me see if I can summarise what I was “dealing with” in the first months of 2013:
1. I was still doing some interviews, because the prize I received – Student of the year 2012.
2. I did my first podcast for PeopleTalkingTech with Denny Cherry (Blog|Twitter). Continue reading
…asking for feedback! Always ask for it, when you have that chance! A-L-W-A-Y-S! After you have it though, the tough part comes – review it, think and if needed (and now it gets really hard) – CHANGE. I know it is not easy, but that is the price we all have to pay if we want to get better.
