Opportunity Blocking

This is a different way of doing politics to put down the competitor. Never giving any opportunity to competitors. Ability is nothing without opportunity. Ability needs opportunity.

Opportunity blocking can be implemented by supervisors, managers, and those who are in lead position. They assign work to their sub-ordinates.

To implement ‘opportunity blocking’ one has to be close to the management, and able to influence it.

If ‘somebody’ is capable of challenging the manager/lead in the office, manager can prevent the opportunities and keep him idle. ‘Somebody’ can not prove or impress the management without opportunity.

Manager’s ‘target’ wants to grow, achieve. But no opportunity offered to him for proving his/her excellence. He may have to move to another company for better scope. This way manager can root out his competition.

But ‘opportunity blocking’ is very dangerous to work life balance. Manager has to divert the opportunity to somebody else. He can not do all the work. So he may prefer somebody from his ‘Piggy List’ to look after the opportunity.

These piggy people are without any individuality and skills for achievement. They are ‘piggy pathing’ the manager, because they are inferiors. Manager hands over responsibility to them, but it is his responsibility indirectly. His work load is increased. His head has a very high traffic of office issues both work and politics.

This leads to stress and low productivity. Remember the ‘piggys’ never reduce manager’s work load. They may satisfy his ego. They may not get things completed.

At this point of time, company has to hand over the task to somebody, who can get things completed. The default choice is ‘somebody’, who is put down by manager/lead without any opportunity. His head is cool, with high energy because he is without any work. He will ‘gallop’ into the task with the freshness and spirit. He makes it completed. Anyway company is benefited.

The scapegoat is ‘piggy’. Being piggy is pity but comfort. Read ‘Lord of the flies’ by William Goldings to know about piggy and politics.

Your boss is not giving good opportunities to prove your skills. He diverts it to somebody in his favors. Do not change/quit the company because you do not have any scope to progress. Please be patient, and have good spirit. It is just a delay, not a permanent state. Soon you will get your opportunities.

The situation is temporary. Soon you will be the center of action. Opportunities will come to you naturally. It will reach you when your competitor breaks down under pressure of more work in long run.

Those who blocked your opportunity can not withstand the pressure of more work. Since they have taken your opportunity along with their regular work, they have more to deliver. People break under pressure in long run.

Never develop any negative feelings when your opportunities are blocked. So never fight, compliant, and argue with your management as your opportunity is blocked.

If immediate supervisor or somebody else is blocking your opportunity to show your skills, do not get irritated or feel for it. Simply spend your time to learn new things. Have leisure time with your friends, be relaxed and cool. Increase your energy level to receive the opportunity when it ultimately reaches you.

Stressed Out Programmer

Stressed out Programmer do great jobs with great stress.

Both Smart programmer and stressful programmer are technically sound in getting the job done. The difference lies in their attitude. How do they feel at their work which makes the difference.

Expression:
Stressful programmer do not express them self properly. They have communication problem in both mother tonque and foreign language.

They do not express their emotions from small to big. They bottle neck everything. Later on they blast out everything.

Technically, they are good at time estimate, but they do not express it properly. If their client or Project Manager wants to done the work quickly, they agree to complete the work in short time. They do not fight or argue for the time estimate which they feel right.

They work for long hours. From morning to midnight. They work like anything to get the job done ‘quickly’. They never express their inability work or tiredness.

Emotional Well Being:
While working their emotional well being will be negative. They have angry and aversion. They feel for ‘running on heel’ to finish. They have thoughts like, ‘This task can be done in four days, but forced to do in 2 days or less… nobody cares or technically not sound to estimate the time as I am…”. But they do not express their thoughts to the right person.

If they feel four days is must, it is their right to demand it and work comfortably. It is programmer’s responsibility to educate the client or Project Manager about the time required and reasons for the time required.

It is every individual’s responsibility to take care of their health both mentally and physically. Stressful programmer ignore their responsibility to maintain their health.

Fear of Unknown:
Stressful programmer have fear of unknown. They have anxiety always. They have fear of loosing their job. They never say ‘NO’ to their client or immediate supervisor for ‘in-human’ requests. They always say ‘YES’ and suffer a lot.They want to be too good to the management.

Ego and Comparison:
They have ego or pride as they are working hard and long and completing the tasks. They compare them self with others and develop lots of negative feelings and complex.

Stressful programmers always compare them self with smart and stress free programmers.

Salary Hike:
They have desire for salary hike or deserve it, but never express it. Instead of expressing, they expect management to reward it.

Nobody gives what you want till you express your demand. Those who express have two results. Either their demand is granted or not granted. For those who do not express have only one result. Not granted, since nobody aware of their expectation.

Skill is not the only deciding factor in salary fixation. Lots of socio-pollitical factors are involved in it.

Immediate Boss Relationship:
They always think they are better than their immediate boss. It may be or may not be true. Their relationship with their immediate boss is always bad and stressful.

Immediate boss is a designation, do not expect it to be superior in skills.

Job Hopping:
Stressful programmer tend to change job often. For any problem in the workplace, they think ‘Job Hopping’ is the only solution. When problem arises, leaving the current job is not solution. It is a sort of escapism.

Conclusion:
Programmers are getting stress by their attitude and emotions. They do not express and bottle neck. They have fear of unknown and anxiety. They want to be too good and suffer for being too good. They compare and complain everything around them.

By changing the attitude, stressful programmer can become Smart Programmer.

Blogs are Literature?

Are Blogs literature? There are plenty of content written in Blogs. Are they part of Literature?

There may be copied content in Blogs. People simply copy content from another websites and post it their website with or without changing the words. This is eGarbage.

There is another type of copying is cGarbage. cGarbage is Concept Garbage. This can be referred as tGarbage – Theme Garbage too.

God Divinity Salvation
The concept of Milton’s Paradise Lost is God or divinity. The concept of Pilgrim’s Progress By John Bunyan is God or Divinity. There are various and countless works written woven around God, Divinity, Salvation. These three are copied as concept or theme for many or countless early literary works.

Love
Love is the theme of millions of literary works from all over the world in all the languages. From Romeo and Juliet to Lila Majnu all sharing the central theme Love.

There are common themes like Revenge, Society, Humanity, Charity and etc.

There is no single concept which is unique and not copied over. Billions of books written for Personality Development.

When cGarbage can be called as Literature, eGarbage also can be called as Literature.

Existence of Blogs in Olden Days
Baccon’s essays, Charles Lamp’s essays and other coffee house publications after Renaissance can be considered as forerunner to Blogs. Those works were written in the form of blogs but in printed format since 15th century. Now the blogs are written electronically in Internet. Earlier there were few people who are educated among educated few ‘contribute’ to English Literature. Now many are educated and many are writing blogs but are the bloggers contributing to Literature?

Yes, the bloggers contributing to literature. Literature reflects the Society. Blog reflects every aspect of life in detail. Some body write about politics, some write about environment, some write about divinity, some write about health care, some write about tourism, everything from personal perspective about every aspect of life.

By reading a blog, it is possible to study about the country and its culture. If you read the technical blogs you can understand technical penetration in day today life of the country the blogger belongs to.

At the same time, efficiency in writing is different from simply writing. I am able to speak is different from, I am an Orator. But all are speeches. The quality of writing may differ but what ever is written is content and it is literature.

Blogging is Literature.

In the next centuries, Blogging literature will be studied as part of English Literature. Blogging Literature is global as well as local. Like American Literature, Indian Literature, Blogging Literature will have its niche in English Literature.

Buying House in Chennai

Who can buy a house in Chennai?

Buying a house in Chennai is beyond the scope of middle income group people without housing loans. No two bed room flats or a house around 1200 SQFT is available for less than 25 lakhs. This is regarding apartment. Independent house can not be bought by middle class people even with bank loan.

Moreover, the NRIs from chennai has more opportunity(money) to buy a house in chennai with bank loan than Middle class people living and working in Chennai.

If you look around your known circle, the software professionals working/worked in abroad booked apartments more than non-software professionals.

The land value of within the city is beyond the life time income for middle class chennai population.

ECR or OMR areas are for NRIs and proprietors who employed and providing provisions to middle class people.

Well, where can the chennai middle class people ‘settle down’ in their own house?

About 30 to 40 kilo meter away from chennai city(sub urban bushes), chennai’s middle class population can buy a house. In Urappakkam, Kooduvancherry, by all the GST road from chennai to trichy has little scope for chennai middle income group to buy their house.

Chennai is growing. You can buy a old house or around Chengulpet and say you have owned a ‘house in chennai’. Chennai will swallow the areas till Chengulpet, Kanchipuram, and Pondicherray. Chennai is extending in all the direction (except in the east) by swallowing the near by villages, municipal towns etc.

Kunrathur was a separate entity from chennai, is now part of Chennai.

The Chennai city is expanding like universe.

In spite of all the financial hurdles, is it worth buying a house in Chennai? You have to pay the house loan EMI for the rest your life if you are a middle income man.

Is it worthy of buying a house in chennai? Along with the price, the quality or quantity should increase. Is it happening in rocketing realty price hike? If you have already bought a house in chennai, you may read it why you may dispose it.

The chennai city is growing in size and population.

Is the water reserve proportionally increased? Is water distributed equally to all citizens of Chennai? Are the road quality and road capacity to handle exploding traffic get increased? Are the police stations and police men are increased proportionately with increasing population and land. Is the public transport enhanced to meet out the commuting of ever exploding Chennai?

Are Government Hospitals, schools, colleges increased along with physical area and population? Are there enough public toilets and parks? Does Chennai have a drainage system with the capacity to dispose sewage from its dwellers?

If ‘NO’ is the answer for all the above questions, this city is growing unevenly. No proportionate growth in all the aspects. It seems to be both crowded and congested. A concrete jungle than a well planned and organised city.

If you are living in Chennai with your family, you may need to travel from 4 to 5 hours per to day to shuttle between your house and office. You find it difficult to reserve travel ticket to go to your native place. You find it difficult to go to a movie without reservation in weekends.

You vacate your house in raining season because your house is inundated.

You find it difficult to park your two wheeler or four wheeler in your house premise or your house may not have premise. You have to park your vehicle in street.

You have to wait in a ‘Q’ for everything and anything in public places.

Your family women have to carefully walk in the street to avoid men like barbarians who are intoxicated by alcohol.

You children are trained to be professional corporate slave if they study in English medium private schools. After finishing college, they are only eligible to be a corporate slave than a free man.

Just think whether you are going to buy a house in Chennai which is a man made concrete jungle or in a human habitable city. Chennai seems to be Concrete Jungle growing aggressively than a city worthy of living. For middle class man it is a city for working than living.

Chennai or any metro city is a cluster of loosely coupled industrial units than a City.

Soon the people living outside of Chennai will shuttle to their offices from 40 to 50 km away from chennai. Finish their work and go home in the late night or midnight.

Impact Blogging and Informative Blogging

With my little experience, I distinguish the blogs into two types. Impact blogging and Informative blogging.

After reading a impact blog, there will be a change in your attitude or temperament. It may be short or long. Your belief system or the way you see the world and yourself will change. The blog you read influence you. It motivates you either positively or negatively. It has a scope to change your life.

The best example for impact blogging is stevepavlina.com. It really influence its readers.

After reading the informative blog, the reader will get some data, some information to take a decision. It expand the knowledge of the reader. For example, price comparison of the IPOD will help reader to purchase the IPOD. Technical blogs, review blogs, blogs about gadgets, movies and etc. are informative blogs.

The best example for informative blog is labnol.com.

What type of blogger are you? Find it.

Impact Blogging

If you are an impact blogger, your chances of earning money through your blog is less or nothing by and large. You will have less traffic. There may be exception too.

An impact blogger should not expect money from his blogging. Impact blogger never thinks about what to write. Subjects explode from him spontaneously. It is spontaneous. The morals, philosophy, concept or the topic find its way through the impact blogger to reach its readers.

Impact blogger lives, observer himself, others and the life. Just record his feelings and thoughts. That’s all.

Impact blogger is not the owner of the content or concept he express in his blog. The content choose the blogger to come out and reach.

Impact blogger will not be in an urge to write. Writing happens to them. Impact blogs take its own time to find its readers. Sure it will find.

Impact blogger can stop blogging at any time. He will not loose his traffic/readers and the money he ears from his blog(if so). Because, impact concepts are in evergreen demand, but in fewer demand only.

Informative Blogging

Informative blogging is a sort of journalism or news paper, which deals with current affairs of the topic being written. If you are a informative blogger, you should be vigil on the topic you are blogging.

If you are passionate about mobile phones, you should be writing about current trend in mobile phone industry, arrival of new mobile phone models.

It is a laborious task to keep giving quality and authenticated information to your readers.

Unless you are passionate about what is the information you provide, you can not give original content. Otherwise, you will be creating ‘e-garbage’. E-garbage is not possible with impact blogging.

Information blog has good traffic and scope to earn from blogging. Within a short span, information blogs earn money from its content.

If the information blogger stop writing, his traffic and income will reduce drastically.

As long as you blog, you will have money. Residual income is not possible in information blogging.

For quick and easy money, information blog is the right choice.

Majority of blogs in the internet are informative blogs. It is easy to start a informative blog even by stealing content from other blogs, books.

The readers will find their information from informative blogs. Whereas in impact blogging, the content will find its readers.

Satan in the Office

Are you a Satan in the Office? Are you a Submitter in the Office.

Few years back wherever I work, I behaved like Satan.

I did not mingle with the management or my immediate boss or the person who established the company. I was at loggerhead with them and had friction.

I had very high ego, and I have good professional skills. With the confidence in my skill and ego, I felt superior.

I tried to create my own group of colleagues who were my admirers. I wanted to establish as a person, who can be equally par with boss. I kept distance from boss to avoid being subdued.

I wanted to have more influence, impact, power, heroic image than my Boss.

I may not express my behavior clearly. In simple words I friction with the ego of my Boss and create a ‘buzz’ for me in the office, which may ‘thrill my admirers’.

All I was doing while working in someone’s office and paid by someone but, I tried ‘Show my ego’ to someone who is the creator of the office.

If you read about the conflict between God and Satan and why God created earth, you can understand what I am trying to say.

Bible and Quran advocates such concepts.

Satan was an angel serving to God with extraordinary powers granted by God. Soon, Satan developed his ego that He can be a God. He was not ready to accept that God is his God. He challenged God. God created this world/earth for Satan to rule to make him realize that he is not capable of becoming another God.

What is the stand of Satan towards God before he fought with god that was my ‘stand’ towards my bosses few years back.

You can see an anti-incumbency spirit or aversion towards current company among employees. This is a sort of Satanic Spirit.

Hope you can guess the result.

Submitter

After studying my attitude, I corrected my mistakes. I changed myself as a Submitter.

Boss is giving you an opportunity to work, money to make a living. Through work you get status in the society. In turn he expects the following from you – work for him and be dedicated to him.

Sometime, you feel that Boss gives more work to you. Sometime, you feel that Boss gives less work to you.

Sometime, you feel that he terminates your friends/colleagues who are provided to you by your Boss.

Sometime, you feel that he is giving more salary to you or less salary to you. Sometime, you feel that he gives more salary and less work to a person who is less competent than you.

Sometime, you feel that he brings you close to him. Sometime, you feel that he pushes you away from him.

He may fire you in a fine morning or apply pressure to drive you to quit.

But, you should not question any activity of your Boss. He may or may not tell you the reason for his activity. If you try to assume the reason, you will end up in indefinite assumptions. Even if he terminates you, you should accept it willingly.

Apart from salary, you will be in peace if you accept and submit.

Submitting to God

God makes you born in this world. He make somebody rich by birth and somebody poor by birth. He makes somebody rich and poor in the due course of life.

Sometimes He gives abundance of wealth to somebody who is identified by you as BAD person. Sometimes, He gives abundance of wealth to somebody who is identified by you as GOOD person.

Sometimes, God gives pain and grievances to somebody who is identified by you as GOOD or BAD person.

GOD gives you parents, brothers, sisters, wife, children, relatives, friends and neighbors. You may hate some of them and love some of them.

Sometimes, God terminates their life. If you love the person being terminated, you will lament. If you hate the person being terminated you will be happy. But, God behaves irrespective of your sentiments.

Sometime, God let a sick man to live long, and terminates a health man in his youth. Sometime God let a healthy man to live long and terminates a sick man immediately.

Sometime, you feel that God is favoring you and in other time, you feel that He is not favoring you.

You should not question anything. You should not analyze why. You have to submit and accept whatever God is doing.

Don’t equal your office boss with our Divine Boss. Otherwise you will be committing the sin of Idol Worshiping. Office boss is just a mere creation of God like other living beings. He is just a human. He is not Good always and he is not Bad always like everybody.

Both Bosses do not expect us to be their submitters. If you are a submitter or Satan, it is not going to affect both the bosses. They are intact. Do not think your Boss will favor you, if you are a submitter and harass you if you are a Satan. Boss does what he has to do or like to do irrespective of, whether you are a Satan or submitter.

But, being a Satan or Submitter has a impact in you. If you are a Submitter, you are positive, balanced and in peace. If you are a Satan you will be restless.

It is our responsibility to be a Submitter by killing our ego for our own Goodness and Peace.

If you listen to the discourses of Rashad Khalifa, you can understand what is to be a submitter.

In the recent companies I work, I behaved as submitter. I am peaceful and balanced.

The role you play has a impact in you, not to others.

I dedicate this article to the bosses to whom I was a Satan and to the bosses to whom I am a Submitter.

Mood Cycling

Mood Cycling is a psychological disease. It create genius as well as people who faced debacle. The reason for cyclic mood may be anything like chronicle depression, loss of nutrition and etc. It can be treated by consulting a psychologist.

Many people live with depression or cyclic mood problems without knowing that it is a disease happened to mind like other diseases happened to body.

People affected by “cyclic mood”, hang an in a mood without any valid reason and suddenly swift to other or opposite mood without valid reason.

Throughout our life we are traveling between moods. We stop at ‘happiness’ if any of our expectation happened. If anything happened opposite to our expectation we move to ‘sadness’.

If somebody is better performing than our self, we move to ‘hate’ and hang in jealous mood.

We move to ‘FEAR’ mood, if our life or our beloved ones life, or our career, job or our social status is at risk.

If our beloved one dies, we move into depression.

If our day to day life, the incidents happening around us and how we are reacting to the happenings are taking us to a mood. We hang on in the mood for a while. By another incident we are taken to another mood.

I was in sadness yesterday. Today by some incident, I move to happiness. Tomorrow by some incident, I will move to romantic mood. Day after tomorrow, I may move to depression by another incident.

The incidents may be countless, but the unique list of moods we get in our life time will be not more than 20.

Happiness, sadness, jealous, aversion, love, sexy, romantic, fear, angry, dullness, confidence, guts and etc. You can add your moods into the list.

We do not have control in which mood to dwell in. Our environment and incidents happening around us decide in which mood we should be.

You can not be happy or joyful when you travel in Chennai’s metro bus(Pallavan) in peak hours. It is crowded and congested. The bus swallow the passengers two to three times more than its normal capacity.

If you are standing inside the bus, you will be squeezed, you will be suffocating. You can not be joyful while traveling in such condition. You are in stress.

You will be in ‘romantic’ mood if your girl friend or lover traveling with you in the crowded bus. Here both will be in romantic mood.

All of a sudden, you move to ‘happiness’ or a sense of relief mood if you get a seat by chance in such traveling.

Same bus, same crowd but we can ‘travel from mood to mood’.

The default mood of a traveling in a crowded bus in peak hours can be overcome by additional activities.

You can overcome the travel stress by jumping into ‘serious’ discussion with co-passengers. I often do this.

It is natural that human is cycling through moods. But how a cyclic mood or “mood cycle” can be a disease.

1) No bad things happened to you, but you are sad.

2) You have come to sad mood by some incident. You are not able to shift to other moods. You stay in sad mood for longer period or forever irrespective of things happening around you.

It’s time to meet psychologist.

Enthusiasm is the best mood. It helps to over come fear of unknown, fear of failure, and propel us to achieve goals with unknown end. It helps to come out of failure, frustration and depression and any negative mood.

Do you know, what is your default mood?

Does default mood exist?

I do not know that what is the default mood or first mood of man when he born, mood of a baby in womb, mood of just born baby.

But, I pray to God to let the ‘Enthusiasm’ be my default mood.

House Wife Stress

What are the problems of stressed wives?

Money Constraint:
Live within the salary of husband or how much is given by husband.
Either house wives do not have full financial freedom or sufficient finance. Both are tough Stresses.

Routine Job:
Working women can change the company, if they not like it or get bored with it. But house wife can not change their ‘company’. Irrespective of ‘likings’, they have to do the routine job. It is the spirit of ‘love’ glue them to their families(companies).

Lack of Appreciation:
Working women are recognised or appreciated in their office. They get promotion, salary hike and in some way their hard work and achievements are recognized by the people/company to whom they serve. But the dedication and hard work of the house wives are always ignored. Every human being deserve appreciation for the role they play. But the role of house wife never get its appreciation it deserve duly. If you are a house wife and you are appreciated for successfully carrying out your task, please post/comment here.

No Leave:
House wife has to work without leave. Even on holidays, they can not escape from the duties of taking care of their children, husband. I could not think of job with holidays.

Identification Crisis:
If the wife is an “educated house wife”, their self identification will be a stress. Educated woman wants to identify herself as ‘working woman’ in her society. She wants to have professional tagging to her identification. If she is not able to or allowed to go to job due to some ‘valid reasons’, she will have a sort of stress for being an ‘Educated House Wife’.

There is no rule that a house wife must live with all or some stresses mentioned above. There might be few house wives living without the stresses discussed above. If you have any other stress to be highlighted here, please post/comment here.

Turn towards your Boss

Your boss is waiting turn towards him.

You boss is waiting to train you, guide you, help you to improve in all the aspects. Just turn towards him. He will absorb and lift you.

Many sub-ordinates logger heads with their immediate bosses for various “developed reasons”. They develop anti-incumbency spirit with their management. Develop hate and averse. Identify and organize other people with the same spirit.

Many employees complaint is salary issue.

My subordinate offered 6k per month. We offered what he demanded. Within two months after joining he sniffed everybody’s salary. Started salary comparison. He started murmuring as he is underpaid, his salary is lower than X,Y,Z. He forget that the company has given what he asked.

If the Boss express his favor to somebody by his own likes and dislikes, the “disgruntled employee” raise it as a partiality issue. If the somebody is a female, character abuse will be executed.

The Disgruntled Subordinate forgets why he has joined the company – for career progress, salary, status, making a living, exploring the opportunity to realize himself and his skills, and support his family, and etc.

Immediate boss is the gateway for all the needs and wants of a subordinate. If an employee turn towards his boss, boss will give him the key for success.

Instead, if employee shows his back to his boss, he will not progress. He will burn by the jealous over the progress of others who have inclined to your boss.

By all this negative measurement, disgruntled employee turns towards “exit”.

God/Boss does not fire/terminate this type of employees. He waits for his sub ordinate to turn towards him. Ready to forgive everything. Guru always expects a perfect disciple to transfer his knowledge. Like Guru, Boss expects a receptive subordinate to transfer his knowledge.

Mostly disgruntled employees quit the job. Their negative attitude and negative emotions over the management, push them out of the company.

Like the boss of the company, the Boss of the universe, Boss of our soul is waiting for us to turn towards Him. He is ready to forgive all our sins when we turn towards him.

We do not know, why we born, what is the purpose of life, what is after death. We do not even try to know these things. Indulging in worldly matters and forget to fulfill the soul’s quest to return to God.

If you are not interested in what is after death, salvation, realization, never mind. Peace of mind is guaranteed till your last breath if you turn towards God.

God is very patient. He is waiting for you always. It is your choice.

I have turned towards my boss, the God.

Smart Programmer

Smart Programmer work less and produce more. He get the job done without giving stress to their client or immediate boss. At the same time he does not have stress or does not work till he burn out.

Smart programmer understand clearly, what has to be done, what is the need of the client. He works in a line and length with requirement to fulfill the needs of the client. He does what makes client happy, not what is easy to him.

Smart programmers has technical expertise. He innovates new ways to get the job done quickly and easily. He does not look at his monitor for whole day. He works few hours a day and show more productivity than stress free programmer and stressful programmer.

If a task needs 8 hours of labor, he takes 5 to 6 hours and be relaxed in remaining hours. He does not take 12 to 14 hours to complete a 8 hours job and saying ‘I am working more, staying upto midnight in the office…’.

He is quick in his work as well as leaving the office quickly in the evening.

Smart programmer is stress free because of his skill in time estimating. He does not over estimate or under estimate. He will convince the client or immediate boss that why he needs such a timeline to get the task done.

Smart Programmer has both communication and persuasion skills.

When client or immediate boss, forcing to complete a task in too short time, smart programmer will not agree. He has guts and confidence to oppose the immediate boss if he is charged inhumanly.

Smart programmer know what he can and can’t do. He will not commit for what he can’t do.

Focusing on client’s requirement, be truth full to what he can do and can’t, being positive in communications and having guts and confidence to oppose when he is demanded more inhumanly, and with little bit creativity. These are the attitudes of Smart Programmer.

In overall, the stress level between the smart programmers and the clients will be lower or zero percent. They keep themself happy and keep the client happy.

Being a smart programmer is not related to technical skill alone. It is related to attitude more than technical skills.
