Ouch ! That Sinking Feeling.
When your pet project was killed.
Without any rhyme or reason.
Your world crashed.
Your Hard Toil Flushed down the Toilet.
Perhaps, It is the same feeling that a Blog Author gets.
When there is silence to his or her efforts.
Silence is the Road Bump on the Blogging Bridge.
Or, perhaps painful potholes on Mumbai's roads.
Remember the old (Indian ??) Jungle Saying ?
Silent Spectators Surely Suffer.
In the Dark.
The Blog Bridge, like all our other work, rests on four pillars.
As articulated by the Original American Quality Guru, Dr. Edward Deming, whose PDCA Cycle can be used to leap across the Blogging Bridge or any other work activity.
As IT Professionals, let us not repeat the same mistakes.
What the world's largest Automobile Industry did many years back.
When they ignored the above man.
And his PDCA cycle.
And let Japanese Car Manufacturers pedal away into our hearts and minds.
The key word is 'Act'.
Maybe a Curse, Comment, or A Clap.
Even A Slap.
I (Still) wait.
But not for long.
Statutory Warning : This Blog Author has determined that Silent Soaking can be injurious to your Intellectual Health.
And future Wisdom & Wealth.
