Took off from work. Had to get a govermnet id card for my younger kid.
Had a good rest day since I was tired from yesterday latenight study of the Atomic habits.
Also started to do few habits which will enahnce my work life. I have 8 or 9 items spread across 7 days to read or learn like programming languages/frameworks and concepts.
Thinking of changing to different company. Purely because I need to increase my take home salary. My current company is best in work life balance there is but need to up my financial freedom so need a couple of years of high paying job.
Its always a tradeoff between time and money so I am thinking of trading my time to extra money. I know the comapanies that pay better than my currrent ones does not have a good work life balance. But I will give it a try.
I have also being working on creating alternative streams of income creating courses in the areas of my expertise which I gained over a decade and half in my job.
Below are the thing which I am thinking of improving in the next 6 months.
- Expand vocabulary in English
- Brush up Algorithm fundamentals
- Get stronger in Python to use it as primary problem solving language in interviews
- Update the resume and make sure it is clear and concise.
- Practice problem solving.
- Brush up SQL and NoSQL fundamentals.
I guess I will be able to switch with good increase in pay. But for now I just have the eye on the process which I am trying to put in place. I would take this week to do that and then will be in the grind.
Fun times isn't it.
