Today we focus on Becoming Technology Tool Agnostic. For our purposes we define being Technology agnostic as to be unbiased towards the use of different technology or tools to solve different problems. It is also not to be too obsessed with Your tools. As professionals we have a responsibility to provide the best technical value to our customers/ clients, employers and stakeholders. Being technology agnostic requires that we step back and gain full understanding of what is required to meet project goals per time. Do listen, share with a friend and have an Amazing Week!

We hold dearly to hearts, narratives that are integral parts of the fixed identities we’ve created for ourselves; letting go of a number of these fixed identities and mental models can do us a world of good, but doing this requires a courage. In today’s episode we would be about starting over, skill acquisition and overcoming limiting beliefs. Mental models are self explanations of how things work. This is our perceptions and the worldview we carry around in our minds. Do listen, share with a friend and have an Amazing Weekend! Notes from Today’s Episode: § Deconstruct Your learning or project, break the big tasks into manageable bits and face them head-on § Learn just enough to self-correct: you have to realise that you cannot to omniscient, do your due diligence, read blogs, watch Ted talks, read books, but don’t let this phase slip into procrastination. Learn just enough to get on the bike and start riding. § And finally for today - Remove barriers to practice - You are constantly bombarded with a million and one distraction, you have to intentionally prioritize executing on your projects,  Remember to go out and create Awesomeness, I would love for us to continue this conversation on Twitter, I encourage you tweets @brightcemeka or @chronicles_tcc am looking forward to hearing from you and please do subscribe on iTunes, Spotify, Stitcher Radio, Google Podcasts, Breaker, Podbean and any other podcasting app you use, just search for The creativeschronicles on your podcasting app and subscribe, thank You!

Today he shares with us his story and lessons he has picked from a really long career in technology. "Do note that you will not have all the answers at the beginning, but ignorance is not an excuse. Be ready to walk the talk, it takes a lot to be successful, be ready for eventualities. How prepared you are determines how you react to situations."   Notes from Today’s Episode: Even our mistakes shape our paths, it adds up. Our success story is a product of our experiences Learn emotional intelligence, it does a lot for your career and business Have values, ethics play a major role in the decisions we make and who we become It takes an inordinate amount of effort to make an impact in the market place or in career. Consistency will help you standout. Don’t focus on the buzz words or hype, learn to kill the noise Business skill, people skill, there is also an element of marketing needed; evaluate your strengths and weakness before starting out in business Because you have failed at one thing, doesn’t mean you are a failure.   Demystifying myths The Myth that the entrepreneur’s path is easy is wrong; this makes a lot of people jump on the entrepreneurship bandwagon and they are not ready to do what it takes. Technology is profitable and attractive, but you need to do a lot of work and also you need to have an open mind to learning. Learn to fail fast and learn to laugh at yourself. You need to be prepared and understand what it really takes to be an entrepreneur.   Remember to go out and create Awesomeness, I am looking forward to hearing from you, send in your comments via email:  thecreativeschronicles@gmail.com, remember to subscribe on iTunes, Google Podcast and any other podcasting app you use, just search for thecreativeschronicles on your podcasting app and subscribe, thank You!   Show Notes: LeProghrammeen - http://www.leproghrammeen.com/ Follow Abdulhakim on Twitter - @ https://twitter.com/hakeemhal
