My career has unfolded in roughly five year blocks. A wise man said the three stages of a career are learning, building on learnings and applying lessons to drive value and I find that framework holds true for my career as well.
Here are the major stages of my career
2004-2009 Technology, Engineering, Project Management
Learning about showing up, delivering, being a team player and speaking up
2009-2013 Consulting, Telecom, Digitization, First Principles
Learning about about managing people, process, technology and commercialization
2013-2017 Entrepreneurship, Artifical Intelligence, IoT
Learning about leading people, selling and building products that matter
Each sprint has been full of challenges, and that's what makes it exciting. What has helped me is doing my best on things in my control
I'm busy in planning the next five years, will write more when its done.
