Errors in Life


Saave Plants

One important thing that I have learnt in my long  ex-career as a Software Tester is that wherever there is a human element involved in any product or service, there will ALWAYS be errors. Humans are responsible for adding the beauty, the emotions, and the intellect to our product and services; but let’s be honest, they also add the errors.

When someone walks up to me to tell me, “I am 100% confident there are no errors in my deliverable. Please don’t delay this by another review. ” I can only sigh and tell them that humans were made to be imperfect. It is Ok to be imperfect! I know there are still errors, out there, waiting to be caught; if not by me, then by our clients.

As a manager, my reviews are not aimed at pointing fingers and showing my team down. These are aimed at improving the product, the process that goes behind it and yes, the efficiency of the team.

Just because I constantly raise defects, that does not mean, my own systems and processes are error free. I am just as human as anyone else out there. As I step into office each day, my endeavor is to fix processes leading to errors, so we outgrow the past errors and are ready for some new ones, at the next level of maturity. Wouldn’t life be so boring, if we were to continuously make and solve the same errors for the rest of our lives?

I am an ex-Management Consultant and a successful entrepreneur having close to twenty years of corporate experience. I am currently focusing full time on being a homeschooling parent while researching on the future of education and alternate methods of education. I am also a Vedic Math Trainer, an Operations Manager at a business run by her children and a philanthropist working with tens of other under privileged children. I bring all my past and current experiences together in the form of writing blogs. Using these blogs I wish to create awareness in parents, caregivers and educators about parenting, education and holistic living.
