I write about Software Development, General management and what interests me in Science and Maths. While the former is based on my experience as a Project Manager and what i read (books, articles, blogs), the later is a residue from my college days where i slogged for a Masters Degree in Physics.
If you are wondering about the 'everything else' part, it is inspired by Hitch Hiker's Guide to the Galaxy Series by Douglas Adams. :)

One of those that keeps me going...
Project Management can be tough and draining, many a times. For times like these, i find the book Meditations by Marcus Auerilis to be inspiring and motivating. Here is a quote from the book.
"No carelessness in your actions. No confusion in your words. No imprecision in your thoughts. No retreating into your own soul, or even trying to escape it. No overactivity.
They kill you, cut you with knives, shower you with curses. And that somehow cuts your mind off from clearness, and sanity and self-control and justice?
A man standing by a spring of clear, sweet water and cursing it. While the fresh water keeps on bubbling up. He can shovel mud into it, or dung, and the stream will carry it away, wash itself clean, remain unstained.
To have that. Not a cistern, but a perpetual spring.
How? by working to win your freedom. Hour by hour. Through practice, honesty and humility."
