A long way to go

When work is a pleasure, life is a joy!
When work is a duty, life is slavery.

Maxim Gorky.

Today there are too much of everything: joy, sorrow, work, to-dos...
I just humbly try to taste life since 1988.

A Few Failures

You can find my failures & lessons learned below.

Didactive Internship

I did internship in two well-known IT companies in Turkey. What I've learned is that corporate life is not for me and career in corporate, big companies is inefficient for fast-learning & self-development. It is wise to do internship during university years.

Non-dedicated project life

During university years, I've participated in various projects & start-up attempts which failed or didn't last second month. What I've learned is that both myself and my team should dedicate, focus on the project in order to get the job done & success.

Labour theorists can exploit you, too!

I took part in various academic researches during my bachelorship which means I'm very lucky to experience academia very early. What I realized is that it has its own political economy and even labour theorists can exploit you if you let them.

Partnership is fragile!

We've started a production company during senior years. Everything went well until partners were offered prestigious jobs and they were going to graduate, so their interest in our partnership diminished. Choose your partner wisely.

Getting Things Done

We attempted a start-up which will stream stage theater movies globally. We couldn't even shoot a single movie, since we lost our valuable time with planning, dreaming and trying to get seed fund. Lesson learned is just take action immediately!
