I was not blogging since lot of time and after posting this post, I’ll like to thank my internal exams for giving me a way to come back to blogging. In engineering colleges, mostly in boys, there is always a protocol of not studying entire time but cramming the whole syllabus in just one night, one last night before exam. But this time I think there is something wrong with my last night fight protocols(tomorrow is networking exam, so the word protocols is coming often in my mind). I don’t know for what reason, maybe it’s due to very less syllabus, there are some errors in my protocols.
Here is list of things I’m busy with doing till now: Facebook, you tube, learning to play Harmonica, listening to Green Day, continuously thinking about what should I study for tomorrow and now blogging again after lots of time.
But for sure, soon my panic monster is going to rise, and I will be running to find a teacher, a helping hand who will complete the whole course within few hours(for sure this helping hand will be Rohit Pandey). So here is my study plan, to do something silly till 12, run to find Rohit and then late night fight for exams. I hope that I will be able to achieve my plan.
I was thinking of blogging about analytics from many days, but I didn’t because I wanted to have a better understanding of Data Analytics and Google Analytics before sharing that out with you. So first of all I would like to tell how I came across Google Analytics. If you have read my previous post you will be knowing how different tasks were provided to us(If you don’t, read here). So I was given the task to explore the field of Google Analytics, which will then extend to Data Analytics. It’s been exactly one week, so I wanted to share what I learned in this span of time.

13 June was the first day when I entered ColoredCow. I still remember my first day at ColoredCow, it was complete new feeling. Whatsoever I thought about Industry completely changed in my mind. The working atmosphere at ColoredCow was just how I saw on videos of Internship at google and facebook. When I joined at 13, the first thing I saw was, people at ColoredCow were cooking, and it was like whats this is going on. So first thing did at ColoredCow was to eat 🙂 Now I’m habitual of these things which only happens when you have a enjoyable team, and I’m regularly searching on youtube about what I can make(surely will make something delicious).

I was hearing 21 Guns by Greenday(while feeling high, weekend chill), when I realized the actual meaning of the song. So I will tell you the actual meaning of the song that i realized(fell free to tell what you realized from the song). At start of the song, when the gunshot starts, both, girl and boy feel highly terrified. They at first scream seeing the condition around there atmosphere. But soon then they come forward, moves towards each other and soon they are together while there are stills lots of gunshots going around them. Continue reading
I was hearing about the 80/20 rule form early days, but never focused on finding what it was. And then Prateek told me to read “Eat that frog” By Brian Tracy, where I actually read 80/20 rule for the first time, and now I am trying to apply this rule in my life.
The 80/20 rule is one of the most helpful concepts of time and life management. It’s also called “Pareto Principle”, after the Italian economist Vilfredo Pareto, who first wrote about it in 1895. He divided society into to parts, one called the “vital few”,the top 20%, and the other, the “trivial many”, the bottom 80%. This principle says that 20% of our activities will account for 80% of our results. Continue reading
For a long time, and sometimes today, I didn’t find myself in a lot of conversations with people I didn’t know, and when I did, I was uncomfortable. This was due to my shyness or I can say it started way back early. When I joined Saraf Public School, my school from where I did my 12th, we were asked to speak in English or we will be fined. As a reason, I stopped communicating with my classmates. But soon I realized that it was the time to remove my shyness. I’m trying to shed much of my shyness through deliberately speaking up more and other forms of comfort-zone-pushing, so that I can connect with others. Continue reading
The main purpose of life is to learn, we all are here in this world to learn and make this learning count. Since few days we learned various new things (Git, AWS, WordPress), and this was the time to demo what we have learned till now. So a Code Review Process was organized. The Code Review Process started with viewing what we had done and how we did it. There were lots of changes that needed to be made(really lots of) and various new things were told to learn (Ajax, Plugin development, markdown language and more, now I can say I’m a busy man).The mistake we made was, we developed the assignment in WordPress using PHP, which we now know is not a good practice. But yes, we learn from our mistakes, and now after this late night meeting, we know the right way. The only purpose of meeting was to correct us, and I can say that, after the meeting, we are heading in the right way.
During conversation like this, there are various statements that make an impact, deep inside us. One of them was, “Prepare for the marathon, not the sprint” By Prateek. The things we are learning are not just for now, these will benefit us in future. The things that have been told to us to learn, we don’t need to learn them all in one night (like B.Tech course), we have our time to learn, and prepare ourself for the marathon of life.
As now a days I’m blogging at regular interval of time, many of of friends and colleague are asking about it. They have a constant curiosity about knowing why am I blogging? At ColoredCow, we are asked to blog on regular interval. But the main reason I blog regularly is, I’m starting to love it. I used to blog earlier on my blog, but the main focus at that time was just to earn money. I was unable to blog properly, I understand now, the reason I was lacking passion. But now as passion in me for blogging is increasing, I am blogging regularly. Is this was the topic? The topic was Why am I blogging? Why? Continue reading
Let me tell you a story that I learned in my 2nd day at ColoredCow. There were 3 soldiers who went to a village in search of food. Villager sees the soldiers, were terrified and were unwilling to share food with them. So one of the soldiers starts boiling some water and put some stones in it. Seeing this, one of the curious villagers asks them what were they doing. The soldier told that they were making stone soup which tastes wonderful, although it still needs a little bit of garnish to improve the flavor, which they were missing. The villager does not mind parting with a few carrots to help them out, so that gets added to the soup. Continue reading
