Good Morning Ms. Aparna Sharma,

Thanks a lot for accepting my professional request to get connected with you on LinkedIn. We are connected.

Now look at the image below

This is what I preach (follow + endorse + live too) professionally and this is what I learned from My Guru, My Teacher, My Mentor and My Godfather, Dr. M. N. Cooper. I spoke to your father when I met him first time. Image Below.

I worked with Dr. Cooper in 3 different periods from FY 1987–88 till FY 2010–11.
He was born in Maninagar (Ahmadabad).
He completed Ph.D. in computers (in Pixels) from US after passing out from IIT, Mumbai.
He was closely associated with Mr. J R D Tata (Chairman of Tata Sons).
Before starting his business! He worked in TIFR, Mumbai as Senior Scientist.
In his business, he attended his business duty for 32 years dot at 08:21 AM in the morning and he left the duty dot on 05:55 PM for 32 years.
In 32 years, he earned more than 18 lakhs global customers.
All of them bought his business developed IP (software product).
He offered his professional services as a hard core + pakka + passionate + disciplined professional to Microsoft Inc. and to Apple Inc.
I am yet to see, read and hear the business record which he created in India and being in India.
According to me (my perception + my point of view = Based on my experience) he is the finest useful & meaningful CMD I ever met.
I’m walking the same golden path which My Guru walked and still walking.
Being useful and being meaningful 24/7 to myself (first) and to people around gives me immense satisfaction and peace of mind.

Why I am sending this welcome note via Medium and not via LinkedIn

Earlier I used to send welcome note via LinkedIn as an article. For last few months LinkedIn introduced new UI and there are many bugs within the UI of LinkedIn article.

These bugs or errors or mistakes does not allow me to write professionally within no time. They waste too much of my time and I got no time. None of us got too much of time.

As a pakka professional, I gave them (means LinkedIn via Feedback) time to time feedback about it.

However, I assume (flying my thinking kite in air) LinkedIn development team and testers needs some (how much? I don’t know.) time to fix various bugs.

Tomorrow is not promised to anyone. Myself included first.

In turn I want to invest this gifted life & birth in welcoming you on LinkedIn without wasting a single second to change LinkedIn, LinkedIn development team & LinkedIn testers.

I’m not immortal and I’m pretty confident about it. However, I assume or think or imagine LinkedIn firm, LinkedIn development team and above all LinkedIn tester team think + assume + feel they are immortal and that is why they released new UI (user interface) changes for LinkedIn global users without testing it from various user perspectives, angles, behavior, culture and so on.

Same situation also happened with Google Plus.

Google Plus gave the notice for a month before changing the UI.

Now-a-days Google is also giving advance notice for the change in Email UI.

However, changes in UI (in & on Google Plus) specially use of red color created chaos for global users.

On various platforms global users raised their concerned about it.

I also raised my own concern from India.

Having informed above, Pinterest, use different red color!

Somehow no users are complaining about it.

And that’s the point I’m making (and I always make) when UI and UX job is done.

UI is the single most and only window through which user get engaged.

Be it software or hardware.

UX is an act before creating UI.

In my professional capacity, I follow connecting dots + design thinking approach and method very strictly since it has given tremendous + beyond imagination + beyond expectations results to customers to whom I served in Past.

Create prototype (of everything and anything. And that too using paper and color pencils or color pens). Allow users to feel it. Collect feedback and then finalize and then code it and/or make it.
I’m studying Design Thinking since FY 2005 and following connecting dots since FY 2005.
Both are amazing tools & incredible + inspiring thinking approach to solve any man made problem.
I have used them in my personal life and colony life (where I live as of today).
From that perspective I find Medium tool and platform much simpler.
Please be noted.
I am not brand ambassador or evangelist of Medium.
They don’t pay me for praising + promoting their platform (writing & reading web based tool).
I’m also not interested if they decide to pay.
For me as of now, Medium is easy to use.
Easy to write.
And easy to publish an article in no time and that’s the need of global writers.
I am one of them and I’m very small user across the globe.
Fact of the life is as soon thoughts arrives! Tool must be ready to serve the reader and writer.
And that need Medium satisfy with efficient + neat + clean UI as of this month and i.e. May, 2017 and the way I wrote this entire post in few seconds at 10:57 HRS (morning) as per Indian Standard Time.
LinkedIn platform and Google Plus web platform are yet to achieve the speed which Medium achieved for writer and for reader.
You know well. We all got only 24 hours daily to do something incredible, inspirational, enchanting, wonderful, peaceful & kind work that is useful & meaningful to us and to people around. I’m making an attempt today.

Sincerely Yours,

Last minute thought : I am sending this welcome note via Medium (for another solid & professional reason) so that professionals across the globe (India too) can view (share too) this welcome post written by me for you outside LinkedIn environment and that’s the pleasure I wish to give to every user in LinkedIn and outside LinkedIn.
