I had a five-year gap of not posting anything. In today’s form, that is equivalent to plethora of years beyond just five. Lots of things happened and I left the startup scene in 2017 and hopped back to the corporate scene.
Looking at the relevance of my posts, they never get old. The spin is the same: relevancy. These leadership and business values never cease to appear in the same fashion and we similarly grapple with the same victory and challenges.
My mentor asked me to write again. He is right. I should. My insights and reflections just roams around my head and perhaps, putting it out there will help someone out there – that the ups and downs happen to the best of us under any circumstances.
It will not be pleasant but it’s this ride that matters. Watch this space.
People write blogs under different kinds of motivations. Others don’t expect to have their blogs go viral and popular, while others intend to be out there and make it a living. All in all, it is an outlet – a speaker that reverberates your thoughts and feelings. The possibilities are endless.
Being part of the tech business, I have to catch up on what is out there. Having so much thoughts, I never bothered to really discipline myself to strategize a blog. I have a personal one, but I never really focused on maintaining it regularly or publicize it.
I have been working for 11+ years and I just thought that all my observations, experiences and awareness should mean something somewhere. I am a constant influencer, motivator and coach so why not put them down in writing? And an incident that involved my first post reinforced this gumption*.
Hence, the birth of this blog. It took years and years for me to get the right genre. But it is worth the wait. Timing is everything, they say.
If you have any questions, you may leave a reply!
I am aware that success is more than a good idea. It is timing too.
