This is not a mobile testing article but trust me you will want to read about my new blog I am starting…
2017 has been a life changing year for me. It started with my road trip from my home town Chicago to Cleveland. I decided on listening to the audio book 10% Happier by Dan Harris. Before listening to this book, I was in a similar situation like him not in terms of getting high on drugs (you will know what I am talking about when you read the book) but being super stressed at work, starting to feel un-emotional about things and aimed at only doing things which were beneficial to me (Or I thought it was) which is keep working hard, keep looking for the next big opportunity, earn more money/fame/glory and not looking back. It was like a car on cruise control mode which I kept refueling again and again without thinking about how the other parts of the car like the engine, brakes, tires, oil were wearing out (Yup I like car metaphors).
Listening to this book was like a lightning bolt hitting me, as I had a sudden awakening on the reality of my life and how I am affecting others and pulling them into the vortex of Raj’s crazy and stressful life.
This is when I decided that, I have to start reading more books on Mindfulness -> Which in turn seeped into Productivity -> Which in turn seeped into Happiness -> Which in turn seeped into Stoicism -> Which in turn seeped into Giving/Forgiving instead of just Earning/Spending. If you do not believe me look at the list of books I have read in 2017 here – http://www.rajsubra.com/inspirational-books-articles/
This has totally changed me and now I have been experimenting with various things in life. Thus, I have started a new blog on my website with different things I have been trying out, in my journey to be more mindful, stress-free, productive and apathetic to people. I will still be blogging on mobile testing and testing in general, continue my quarterly testing newsletter and keep doing all my training and skype coaching classes on Mobile Testing. This is just an addition to the things I have been trying out.
