Moving on in Life

So far its just been stocks, vat, steve jobs,..., dreams... now its bit about my work life.

I was with ThoughtWorks for the past two years(2003-05). It was a great place to work. What made my experience so wonderful?? The people around me... helpful, passionate about Technolgy, friendly.

Opportunities are every where... just depends on how you make use of these opportunities. 'Some are lucky' - they are at the right place at the right time with the correct frame of mind whereas 'others are not lucky' - not at the right place at the right time.

I probably did not make use of some of the opportunities that came my way in ThoughtWorks. Probably because I was scared... What did I learn - never give up and never believe that you cannot do anything. Just take it up and go ahead. If you dont take it up at the right time its gone and you will feel left out.

I am now at SAP Labs. Have taken up a challenge to try something different in life. So far its been development on Java/J2EE... Here in SAP I will be playing a TechnoFunctional Role. Something different and my designation is 'Solution Management Specialist'.

I have been told that I would be involved in developing prototypes which if approved moves on to development. Not sure how things would be but sounds very interesting.

I joined SAP on 20th July. I have been through the induction program. The induction program was great. We were a group of 20 people who joined together. It was so much fun... meeting new people, making new friends, learning and sharing experiences... I had a blast. Should say interesting and good people to meet and spend time with.

Today I have finally joined my team. Everything seems so new... I miss the training and how I wish I was there. Laughing and talking with everyone... Training was fun I want to be there.
