What we are thinking when we are not programming.

I talked to a fellow Micropreneur and MicroConf attendee last week and I was delighted and happily surprised by the fact that he had the same thoughts about the world as i write about here on my blog. His words was something along the lines “Why do you write what I think/How do you know what I think”.

It was a little bit surprising to me, not that he could connect with the writings but that, it was such a close match to what he thinks. At the same time, it has been obvious to me the last couple of months that more and more people are connecting with me because they have the same worldview.

It has been liberating to write this blog, exactly because of the above. When I started I had a lot of doubt about each post, what would people think, would the ridicule me? Now I know that what I write about inspire and connects with people, and more than that, it connects with people I like and feel connected to.

The thing is that I have always been thinking about why. Why am I an entrepreneur, why do I need to be around people, why I cannot live with lying, why, why, why?

I have slowly been concluding that I am what I am, and all my shortcomings and bad habits is a part of me that I do not wish to change.

So now, I am starting to use these sides of me to my benefit.

My restlessness and my disorganized and quick programming style is becoming a fast and agile development process.

I have turned my restlessness while talking into walk and talks.

My inability to stay focused day after day working on the same problem is my strong ability to handle multiple projects at the same time.

Repeat & rinse.


I am making progress on a "simple" UI mode in the software, still some work to do but I think I have finally cracked the nut.

With regards to the numbers below I have come to the conclusion that I do not have the faintest idea on how to explain it, if you have any explanations please email me!
