Current Work: Xperian
Our team had a hard time reflecting on our years as consultants and decided to plunge into the world of products.
Now, with this it was upto each one of us, to decide if we wanted to continue on this journey. I woke up with a deep question, "What if i come back to this point in my career, later?" I did not leave that question to answer at a later point.
I decided to retire work from my life and dive into it, This is my journey at Xperian and the current projects here:
A few things in life do not come with a user’s manual and one of them is your product career path. In our lifetime, we spend about 7000 days (~19 years) on our careers, do you know how to maximise this precious time?
We're answering some real questions with speakers every week.

I never learnt to write a piece of code but empathise with it. When I discovered no-code, i was empowered to learn, grow and keep going to add value back to design & product.
Understanding and opening up the world of design & nocode for everyone! All you need to come with is your imagination.
What can you build?
1. Build a custom Udemy for your courses using Nocode tools.

THE REFLECTING SHELF
While the world around shouts out and swells with pride that this is the information we know, it only adds to information gathering. The real learning is from reading, reflecting, implementing and adapting what works best for you. I apply this to all aspects of my life and have learnt this deeply from Mentors.
Here's my humble attempt at documenting my notes and tweet threads on the same for future reference:
What do I look for when I reflect?
Does this concept age well and has it held the test of time?
The sun rises in the east and sets in the west. You cannot dispute these aspects, to observe and learn these phenomenon is very rewarding and can change your perspectives completely.
Meta Concepts and its depths
Life revolves around the subjects that form a lasting impression on you and every subject is a sea of its own. You can never learn enough about it but you can understand its meta concepts and its inner workings. The beauty of this is that more you spend time understanding, implementing and working on it, more depth is revealed and you learn more about it 🤯
I mould myself into a better designer by learning and changing my perspectives.
