Happy Wednesday

Let's all comment below with what our day has in store for us today or what we've already gotten done today.

For me, I only have 5 hours left of work for the day with a meeting from 2 - 3pm and then I'm done for an entire week as I'll be heading to Myrtle Beach, SC for vacation with the wife and the family!

Just some video games throughout the day and evening tonight!

Good morning and happy Tuesday

Let's all talk about what we did over the weekend as well as yesterday for those that had an extra day off due to the holiday.

For me, it's back to work day. I had 200+ emails to catch up on and I have 3 meetings that start at 11am EST.

I work today and tomorrow, then I'm off for a week for vacation in Myrtle Beach, SC!

Have you ever had a coworker who smelled so bad you felt nauseous being near them and couldn’t focus on your work? There’s now a term for that in Japan: smell harassment (スメルハラスメント), often shortened to sume-hara (スメハラ). Learn more below.

Security told me that I am not to use my work assigned laptop to develop software. I am working with this company as a Software Engineer. Have been for over a decade. How am I to get work done?

Very random thought....

I am on my Windows computer so much for work that when I get off, I really just want to do something not on a computer. I realize that I now associate Windows with work and it doesn't feel like something fun or enjoyable. It doesn't feel personal to me.

I've been trying to figure out why lately I've had trouble with personal projects and perhaps this might be a small part of the answer.

From the ar(t)chive…

Voxel-style 3D illustration for a 2005 issue of a Dutch magazine, about the attraction of working for large corporations.

There were no voxel editors yet in 2005, and I guess Shell was still a relatively attractive employer. 😏

Trying to work on my couch for the day. See how it goes.

I usually have two 4K monitors attached to the MacBook and have the MacBook open to use the additional space. But I usually have to manage a dev team. On Friday it’s usually much quieter and I can focus on my dev stuff.

If I work on private projects I do it often from the couch so I know it's doable in theory.

I always have the option to switch to my desk so I guess it's fine.

But the goal is to find a good workflow to only work on one screen from time to time to be more flexible with where I work. For example: I never worked in a café and would like to try this one day.

Good morning and happy Wednesday #Fediverse folks!

Let's all discuss what our day has in store for us today or what we've already done for the day.

It's work as usual for me with a meeting at 2pm that shouldn't take too long. It's a Nova meeting, so should be interesting as well.

Beyond that, likely just some video games and TV to round out the day.

Did you ever have the nightmare of not getting dressed/lost your clothes before going to or and having to go ?

My partner has never, and I find that strange.

Best stories get a boost.

🆕 blog! “It isn't who you know - it's who knows you”

I'm terrible at networking. I forget people's names minutes after meeting them, I never have business cards and lose the ones I'm given, and I can't go five minutes without burbling some nonsense. But I recognise that networking is a skill and, like any skill, it takes practice to succeed. I've always been told that […]

It isn't who you know - it's who knows you
https://shkspr.mobi/blog/2024/05/it-isnt-who-you-know-its-who-knows-you/

I'm terrible at networking. I forget people's names minutes after meeting them, I never have business cards and lose the ones I'm given, and I can't go five minutes without burbling some nonsense. But I recognise that networking is a skill and, like any skill, it takes practice to succeed.

I've always been told that success isn't always about what you know, but more about who you know. So how does someone who is introverted, bad at small talk, and terrible at sending follow-up emails get to know people?

The answer, as always, is to let other people do the hard work.

I realise that asking lottery-winners for advice on how to pick your numbers is not a reliable method for becoming a millionaire - but I'd like to explain how I network and where it has got me.

Several years ago, I lost my job. I knew it was coming, but it still felt shitty. At midday, I rang my wife, told her what had happened and said that I was coming home.

"What about your presentation tonight?" she said. I'd forgotten that I had a Mobile Monday talk in my diary. Frankly, I couldn't think of anything worse than standing up in a room full of employed people and bleating on about my side projects.

"Nah. I'm just not up for it," I said.

"Look, you never know who is going to be there. You can enjoy your unemployment tomorrow."

So, I did the talk. I chatted with people (whose names I instantly forgot), picked up business cards (which are still in a pile somewhere), and drank a bit too much free wine. Then went home to cry.

A few days later, I had an interview with a trendy new startup! The very first thing that the CEO said to me was "Nice to meet you - I loved your talk at Mobile Monday last week!"

I got the job. Not necessarily because of how awesome a speaker I am - but it certainly helped that I received a round of applause from people in the industry.

Several months later and I was touting for work again. A casual acquaintance told me her firm was hiring. I went in to meet the manager and, again, almost the first thing she said was "We saw your talk at Mobile Monday - it was great!"

Two birds - one stone 🙂

More recently, I've got speaking gigs because people have said that they've watched my talks online. I've had more interviews where people have asked for me by name after reading one of my blog posts. I've had journalists call me up for "expert commentary" because they've seen that I've been posting on social media knowledgeably about a specific subject.

Relentless self-promotion is exhausting and - I think - off-putting to most of your audience. That's not the aim here.

So here are my vague thoughts on how to get people to know you:

  • Don't talk about yourself - talk about what interests you.
  • Don't insert yourself mindlessly into a conversation - build up a rapport with people you admire.
  • Don't be a "brand" - people see through that.
  • Do put yourself out there - go to events where you have only a vague interest in the subject.
  • Do ask. Tell people you'd like to present, or write a blog post, or help them organise.
  • Do be prepared to fail. Most people won't remember the things which go wrong; but the effort pays dividends.

Wake up, babe - a new form of workplace harassment just dropped in Japan. It may not get you fired, but many on Japanese social media say "smell harassment" lowers productivity and team collaboration.
