New Year Resolutions - Week 26 Achievements & Failures in 2023 #TheLifesWay

Hi Friends,

Week 26 is the half-way to the rest of the year and you have to think about all the things you didn't do in the previous weeks or half year. I also completed 16 Years of working with my organisation but nowadays there are no benefits to sticking to a single brand. You need to upskill consistently and change and work for the money rather than being in a single organisation. 
New Year Resolutions - Week 26 Achievements & Failures in 2023 #TheLifesWay
1. Launch Events and Expo - I attended the Rail Expo and came to know a lot about the various products and software that are needed to run the trains and other vehicles. Also, I attended the Data Storage Expo which was a very small event with some of the partners of Huawei Cloud. It was a really nice event and got some goodies as well from both expos. I also attended the Parent's Event for Meta where they showcased a lot of privacy and protection settings for your growing kids and teenagers to control the spam and bullying on the internet. 
2. Travel - This is the week where I travelled to Zambia for the first time ever. I really enjoyed Victoria Falls and this is a must-visit site for people living in Africa esp South Africa or those who can afford to visit the same. I am thankful to the Royal Livingstone Victoria Falls Resort by Anantara for the lovely accommodation and free entry to Victoria Falls. More on the same later in a separate post and also you can check my YouTube shorts on the trip. 
3. Thank You - The counter was reset at zero and then I closed the week to reach the 2000 mark only as I didn't carry the same to Zambia or any other events. 
4. Holidays - Going on holidays is always awesome and I am grateful to my wife for taking me to Zambia. I really loved Victoria Falls so much that I went there 5 times in a span of 3-4 days. This is one of the most beautiful waterfalls and I have not seen Niagra Falls yet so can't compare it with the same. This is around 1.7km long where 1.2km is in Zambia starting from Eastern Cataract and you can actually walk down to the gorge as well which is named Boiling Pot. Also, Devil's Pool is in Zambia side which really needs you to be courageous. There is consistent helicopter noise in the area though which starts from 600am and goes on till 630pm which is really irritating for the first-timers. 
5. Smartphone & Camera for Trip - I requested all the brands to lend me a phone to take to Victoria Falls but none of the PR agencies could do so. It's definitely a big loss for them as well as Nikon which told me they are sending me the camera but it never reached. It's fine because you can never take it to the falls as there was a lot of water and continuous rain due to the volume of water falling into the gorge that's just 109m at the highest point. Even my smartphone was getting closed as water droplets felt like touch and it was bringing the camera back to the home screen. But it's fine as it's always to travel light and if they are not paying then it's fine as you don't need to do anything and just enjoy the surroundings. I need to build my network with the posts and ideas that I want to convey and let's create content irrespective of the gadget being used. Let's start!
I am okay to see that I don't need to do anything for any brand which is not doing anything for me in return. Let's enjoy the party that will finish the week on a high note at one of my friends' houses. 

Aum Namah Shivay!

Till next time...Aashish
Thanks! Cheers!!!
