2014 in review

The WordPress.com stats helpers prepared a 2014 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

A San Francisco cable car holds 60 people. This blog was viewed about 290 times in 2014. If it were a cable car, it would take about 5 trips to carry that many people.

Personally I am very happy with 2014. There were several moments of personal & professional learning adding to my maturity.

  • Passing PMP exam was most satisfying (a professional milestone)
    • It triggered my attention to other topics like ITIL, MOF, DevOps, Prince 2, Agile Practices, TQM, Six Sigma & other quality management subjects. I did some self-study
      • Comparing the methodologies,
      • Looked back where & how I was involved in some of these areas and my learning & accomplishments,
      • Advantages & challenges implementing them,
      • Governing Bodies & available certifications and so on.
    • It also helped me get back to blogging. Looking forward to continue it for long time and aspire to achieve next level of blogging, writing & pubic speaking on coming years.
  • I took some online learning on “Business English” . Its essential part of career growth to be able to engage effectively with business stakeholders. It was exciting to know how some of the common sense things are viewed in business language.
  • Did online course on “Digital Payments“.  It was good to understand some of the important concepts followed worldwide in the area of digital payments.
  • Started learning BIG DATA & Internet Of Things and related concepts to enhance my knowledge in the given space.
  • In December attempted the 3rd year exam in Tabla (Yet to get results). Learning music is an awesome experience.

I am excited and looking forward to 2015. It brings me 365 more opportunities to learn new things & share my experiences with others.

Wishing a very happy & prosperous new year to all my friends & blog readers. Take care & have fun-filled life ahead.
