So, Make As Many Mistakes As You Can

It is wrongly assumed that mistakes are not good.
Mistakes are good, NOT learning from your mistake is NOT good.
Learning from our mistakes is essential to positively move forward.

Here, I’m NOT referencing  to any particular “mistakes”. Mistakes might be a mistake you made deciding your career, or a mistake of leaving a semicolon at end of a syntax. It doesn’t matter.

I do not have much of life experience (Oh, I am young!), although I do have some experience in things I love to do.

Let’s take an example of how making mistake is part of my “exploring” process:
Whenever I start learning something new*, whether from book or any other source, I feel that all this stuff is not going to add value to myself all of sudden and I “want” to learn and deal with something that is even more advanced. To do so I realize, it’s really important to understand fundamentals thoroughly and then, use that as my Swiss Army Knife to start the journey of exploration.

Exploration does not mean understanding what already has been documented but instead looking at your individual perspective, invoking** curiosity, making mistakes, asking question, getting answer and of course feeling better. It is all part of learning the advanced stuff.

Conclusion is, don’t let your mistakes bring you down, instead use that as a tool. A tool that reminds you of things that go wrong and the fact that it is time to make it right.
Finally, you’ll have one less mistake to make. smile

Now, I would like to ask you what you have to say about your mistakes? And more importantly, how do you deal with them?

* It can be anything, learning a programming language or a game.
** I don’t think you need to invoke curiosity, it comes naturally as long as you’ve interest in it.

Why I Work For Free?

Because this gave me great opportunity to learn a lot of things. And I’m not bound by anything, no limit on time and resource. Free is being priceless.

In first scenario, I worked for my brother to create an a blog for automobile stuff. I started up with blogger and tried to suffice everything what feature, enhancement my brother asked me for. These were the challenges for me, I came through those challenges and now experience I have is quite solid.

I made web pages for other, setting up blogs, statics pages for interweb friends. Become a part of WordPress community by helping people to solve their problems. MOAR EXPERIENCE!

Now I’ve know that this is the best way for me to learn things. Sooner, Ritwik needed a web developer to build a site but was unable to provide any monetary support. This is great opportunity for me. Same philosophy I started things. We teamed up and build an amazing online magazine. I’m still with the team learning.

In all along the way so far I know what web is, how it works, why people need it. I know how to make great websites, add almost any enhancement anyone can ask. This is the time for me to jump into this thing  as profession.

Some people were willing to pay for me for editing their site for fixing some minor stuff and slowly things got evolved and I started making websites and providing web solutions. I’m still in it and I love it!

Now, I’m applying this philosophy to understand core concepts about Android.

I’m still open to work for free as long you’ve something great and different-type-of idea in your mind. Feel free to get in touch.
