2008 Resolution

Dear Friends,

i miss every one of you, i hope you are all studying hard, and for those who finished, working hard to achieve their dreams, and having fun too.
7 Days and 2007 will leave, and 2008 will come, it is the yearly time for evaluation, for refreshing and for asking ourselves some questions, and have a resolution for the coming year.

at the end of 2007, what type are you ??

Stuck – Stargazer – Victim – or Success

and which one of them you want to be one year from now ?

by the end of 2008 do you want to say that ??

I’m Stuck
Foiled and fumbled, I’ve come to a screeching halt
My spirit is broken and reserves drained empty
I need to know what happened and assign due fault
I am trying to move but the guilt and excuses are weighty
So much goes on inside the mind stopped
Stories, replays, and why rationalizations
Progress held up and dreams overshadowed
By parasitic and carnivorous preconceived notions
Being stuck saps the soul of optimism and drive
Quicksand dense and stronger by the day
Living pushed aside by a need to survive
My goals and intentions have lost their way

or that ?

I’m a Stargazer
One day I’ll create a grand and elegant solution
Heralded, admired, and subject to benchmark
Pride will gush for being a catalyst to revolution
Success will flow like water and shine from dark
Tomorrow will be great I can feel it in my bones
Inspiration will pour into new plans of progress
Just need to discover and define the unknowns
Research options and queries listed to address
Premature launches discredit the value of sound timing
Patience and preparation consume and keep me hopeful
Like a stargazer I keep looking, seeking, staring
The sights and skies inspiring and wonderful

may be this ?

I’m a Victim
I can’t try any harder; I’m stressed and weary
At each turn another hurdle, failure or setback
How much will it take, I’m getting grouchy
I’ve made the effort, now I want a payback
So many avenues have been exhausted
Really, I am not a lazy or uncaring person
I’ve taken advice and remained open minded
These poor results are not supposed to happen!
Why has life chosen to be so cruel?
Why do I deserve this unfair treatment?
Why is this path so long and painful?
Why is success so elusive and distant?

definitely everyone of us want to say that :

I’m a Success
Spent, invigorated, victorious
I’ve made it to my mountain peak
The right map offered precise focus
Got there with perseverance and technique
The satisfaction of going all the way
Is large and grand like Everest
Mini miracles, hard work, some play
Success on purpose and by design is the best!
I knew what I wanted
I knew the best pathway
I did what I needed
I hit a grand slam, hooray!

i am sure everyone of us want to say that, and now it is the time to have the resolution you and i want for the new year
but is it enough to have the resolution only ?
answer is No, you need to focus and take actions
Focus occurs when a resolution is well defined and targeted on solving important problems (not symptoms) or seizing exciting opportunities. The desired outcome is clear, challenging, but attainable and Actions are selected based on how well they support the goal and the tendency to get sidetracked is rejected.


These steps might help you :1. Embrace the opportunity to change your life.
2. New Year’s Resolutions can be fun – let yours kickstart your year.
3. Select a resolution that you find exciting and meaningful.
4. Share your resolution with everyone!
5. Create a plan for success.
6. Get into action.
7. Adjust the plan as needed.
8. Stay in action.
9. Celebrate your successes!

i have been going some blogs and found this resolution for a blogger

1. Not to use any software after the evaluation period is over
2. Learn something new
3. Give something back to the this wonderful community

so lets write ours 🙂

i have found a great book also, called Make 2008 Great
and it is like a tool to help you evaluate the last year, and decide what you want to achieve the next year.
you can find it here

i suggest you print it and answer every single question, it will help you to focus on what you really want and get it done.
good luck every one
and happy new year….

What Keeps you !!!!!!

i had this question in my head since yesterday,

What keeps you from having a better life, making use of every single second in your life ?

all of us has dreams, but we keep dreaming, and few of us who wake up and go for their dreams.

imagine this scenario with me,

what if you visit a doctor, and he tells you this “you have a serious disease, and i am afraid you have only 6 months to live, you gotta sort your things out cause there is no way you will live more than 6 months…”

will you live the next 6 months of your life as you would’ve lived them if you were not dieing at the end of them….

of course no, you will make use of every single second of it,

so the question is, why you dont do this now, why you dont add quality years to your life, instead of dreaming to have them.

i say you have to take the action, every one of us has to wake up and go for his dream.

12 Hours on MatLab


have been working on matlab for 12 hours, was a nice good painful a little experience :D, now i hardly see.

it is my first time to use this program, i installed version 7.1 and worked on solving 2 Sheets of modeling and simulation which contained 9 problems, devieded into a lot of points 😉

they said that matlab is heavy program, but i didn’t feel that, i had it on a windows installed on virtual machine with parallels, on Mac OS on my MacBook pro, and it ran very fast.

now that i am done, i really liked matlab, looks like it works as a very professiona calculator, and does a lot of stuff.

here is some useful matlab links i stopped by while solving the sheets, i am sure you will find it useful..

i have quite good knowledge with matlab now, so if any of you have any questions, i will be glad to help.

Zend Neon – PHP IDE


recently i noticed that zend released a new IDE, it is Zend Neon which actually is built on eClipse.

i tried it, it is very fast, not heavy, and have a lot of options, it really rocks.

you can download it from

i will leave you now with a quick movie about the interface 🙂

C/C++ Editors under Mac OS


i had a problem writing C/C++ code on my new macbook, after some googling, i found some editors that allow me to do that

the first one is the XCode which comes with the original DVD of Mac Os, also can be downloaded from

the second one which is netbeans 6, and can be downloaded from

and the third one is EClipse, and you can get it from

the last 2 programs above is open source, and they can run on any OS not limited to MAC only and they have a lot of cool plugins.

if anyone of you guys know other programs to code C and C++ under MAC, kindly post it in the comments.


Just got back from the Java Course, this was our third session; the new instructor is Good, i really hope that he will continue the whole diploma with us.

Now i have like zillions of things to do.

Mid term C tomorrow – Lectures to be handed after tomorrow – ACES highboard meeting tomorrow – the new company meeting after tomorrow – report matlab to be delivered – beside my work tasks :'(

No Sleep from now on :S


Life is a paint

If your life is a paint, would u hold the brush and paint it yourself, or you will give others brushes to paint it for you ????

would you do it yourself, or you will let others draw the lines just because you think they will make a beautiful paint out of it.


well, now i moved from my old blogs and to here,

i hope i will find this one comfortable for me to write more often.

choosed the mac themes as i moved to Mac recently, gonna write a post later about that experience.

See ya around 🙂
