So instead of working or doing anything productive, I spent the whole day attending various talks in a virtual conference. Even though I learned a lot there, and am still processing some of the information I got, I feel that the conference will neither help me get a better job nor will it help me with my current one. I feel that it will help me in the future, and even help with me with my blog and personal projects.
So is it a form of procrastination? Yes, maybe, I don’t know. It makes me happy, and feel contented. But there’s still this nagging thing at the back of my head.
However, it is by attending these sessions that an idea for a possible work project came up. The issue here, though, is that it would be going against my boss’s boss, and his ideas. Not sure how that will be taken up, as it would basically be saying our product sucks, and the designs my boss’s boss did is lacking. And yet, there’s also this “saving” grace in what I’m thinking right now. And it would be the “recommendations” portion. But still, not really sure how it would be taken.
