I want to grow stronger/broader/versatile as a survivor, not necessarily grow my value-add. Actually I don’t have to grow.
— IV skills – Compared to GTD skills, these skills give me more confidence, more protection, more stress-relief. It works in big job markets like Wall St.
Lots of theory, which is my sweet spot.
Selective on what IV topics to learn!
coding IV + algo — favored by SiV
— (portable) GTD skills
Lots of tools….

Needed for a lead developer, but such a role is stressful. I guess some good lead developers are also good at IV, but I’m not sure and I assume I’ll not be good at both.
Warning – a lot of projects don’t provide real GTD enrichment. Eg: Quartz, tibrv wrappers, Gemfire wrappers, FIX wrappers
Macquarie environment lets me learn lots of GTD skills.
OC gave me IV (c#) and GTD enrichment.
Stirt – none!
A java environment would give me some additional GTD enrichment but less IV enrichment
In SG, I continued my previous strategy, learning IV skills + GTD skills. Not effective so far. I feel my c# IV skills improved a lot but still not there. C++ IV skills didn’t improve much partly due to distractions.
