Quality is your “Golden” trump card

I’m a big believer in “Quality”, and its what keeps me alive in this business. Its also what attracts others to my work and that is what keeps me satisfied => to grow and grow “the right way” with the web.

Having said that its true that many people do compromise on the quality that they deliver for their clients (especially in Pakistan) and thats a real shame, to say the least….

A good example of what i mean here is at Obaids blog where he talks about the Dawn website and it’s redesign. I mean a huge newsgroup like Dawn cant even develop a decent portal for their users??

I have talked to so many people about this but they just look at me and say “Oh thats an awesome site!!” After all most of them dont have anything to compare it with, nor do they care to. Obaid is one individual that steps up and isnt afraid to speak out loud and have people here his voice. And thats a good thing..

  4. Build Confidence: Confidence is one of the keys to success in any business and especially with the ever-changing web. Start out by actually implementing what you have learned into your solutions on a day to day basis.
  5. Setting yourself apart from the rest of the pack (Individualism): This is debatable here in Pakistan, nevertheless I still believe that you should distinctly separate your work from the rest of the pack. A v

Ultimately the above reasons is why i have stuck to my guns in the last year and half or so. I could have easily gone the “average” way but what fun and challenge would that be. I like to push myself, and really feel that the youngsters here in Pakistan should also.

If anyone is interested in group learning sessions where we can exchange ideas about how to improve ourselves i am ready.

    Thanks for mentioning my blog. I do agree with you that “quality over quantity” is what we should be focusing on. There are some very talented people in Pakistan and I am sure as time goes, their work will be highlighted more and more.
