Love-Flings with Startup's

4: The Failure

High on things done so far i.e.Dec 27th 2011 confident in the acquired skill set  I was in a hurry to arrive at bigger stage. "When a toddler learns to walk he/she forgets it would be couple of years before he/she begins to run for Marathon. Chances are that the toddle maybe end up with bruised knees"

My Idea to leave CTT was financial and try to gain more exposure in real world .I joined H2O degree.
Well the start was not bad , little bit bigger team of 4-5 people. But reality started to sink in I was competing with people with 5 years ,10 years experience and I was expected to deliver on similar terms. And mid February 2012 lightening struck I was kicked out of project and turned to be my biggest professional failure and I was not able to tell what I lacked otherwise. And I was pushed on a in-house project a second chance to succeed. But till date I couldn't analyze entirely the reasons to get boots from my first project. Well I did all I could but I guess that wasn't enough.If someone had spared some time to read what I written on H2O degree daily technically blog , I think I had done some decent job

I moved to a second project(early March 2012) was more of a time bomb , ticking really fast , I had to diffuse it and really quickly otherwise I would be walking home. Started to push on things to that extend I guess I didn't had time to speak people I love , and they were really disappointed with my ignoring. If that was not enough I had to handle to mess from love life , well everything pushed me to edge. Well finally early April 2012 I got the boots. Well this project I really had a small error for I2C bus "Baud rate mismatch" Which is all I wanted to resolve and not a fucking skeleton code from someone. I struggled 2 whole weeks trying to help myself resolve this issue but nothing worked.

Well on one fine early summer Friday(April 2012) @4pm I was told this would be last day , well that didn't surprise me a bit. I walked out of that office that night without saying a word to anyone. It almost took me to get out of this mess and in mean time I analyzed what I have is not enough I need to grow.

But this "FAILURE" triggered things which would almost screwed up my stay in USA.
