More than a year ago, I had burnout. One of the contributors to my burnout was blaming myself for all the mistakes I've made earlier. In a way, I took all the responsibility for mistakes, which I shouldn't have done at that level. Although this behavior had a significant impact on me, it also substantially influenced others around me.

The new post is just about that, and it's a short one.

I'm Sorry. The Project is Delayed, and It's All My Fault

On the season finale of the Software World, I welcome Jesper Dramsch, Scientist for Machine Learning in the European Center for Medium-Range Weather Forecasts (ECMRWF) and Geophysicist.

In our conversation, Jesper talks about the differences between Machine Learning and Data Science, how to enter the field, how life scientists shift their focus to Data Science.

We talk about how businesses should approach data as the processes and methodologies are completely different from software engineering.

Listen to the episode here 👇.

I've recently finished the book Worth Doing Wrong by Arnie S. Malham. I found out about this book when I was searching for books related to changing the culture at work. After keeping it on my wish list on Amazon, my manager bought it as a job anniversary gift. So, I gave it a read.

Here are my notes and review of Worth Doing Wrong.

In the remote work in the middle of the pandemic, I try a few things to survive and excel at work. Deep work is one of them. The idea is simple:
Choose one topic and grab a pen and paper (not a phone), and take a walk, preferably in nature, a park, or a calm area where you won't have distractions.

Read more about creativity, time, and deep walks in the new blog post.
