Blood donation time. 

  
Made up some time last week to donate blood. I do this every quarter and like to keep it consistent.  I was pleasantly surprised at how advanced the blood drawing technology is, in the current age. When I started doing this it used to take 45 mins for the end to end process. Now it takes 15 mins. The people who manage this are warm and always welcoming.  

Strengthening Roots

Today is kind of special as my confidence levels are high and I am feeling good. Its not that these do not happen from time to time but this was different as I was strengthening my roots, my core abilities. I surprised myself by implementing an application ground up myself with new technology. Although I must admit that the support structure in terms of help on the web is just overwhelming  I am determined to build on these going forward and would love to sustain these feelings. This reminds me of the quote “only the paranoid survive” where the word “paranoid” is just a perspective of the beholder. When you empower your strengths, you naturally excel and become good at it while at the same time you appear paranoid to another person who is good at another skill.
