Rizwan & Little Raya

About Me

I, was born in Dinajpur, Bangladesh, and my hometown is Narsingdi, Dhaka, Bangladesh. I have completed an MBA in Finance (2008) and a BSc in Computer Science (2004). Additionally, I obtained a Textile Diploma in 1999.

I can say that my hobby or passion lies in web and internet-related technologies, which are continuously evolving. I spend most of my time getting to know IT-related technologies and features. However, my wife says, 'Not most of my time; I spend all of my time behind it.'

I have a lovely little daughter named Annsa Ahasan Pathan and an energetic son named Rujhan Azmaeen Pathan. They are among the most beautiful gifts given by God. Additionally, my wife completes the circle of my life.

I love being surrounded by my family, mostly my father, mother, brother, sister-in-law, and, of course, my nephews Mahir Samran Pathan and Mehrab Zaid Pathan.

I love traveling to various foreign countries. I enjoy learning about different cultures and meeting new people. I deeply care about all of my friends and enjoy engaging in conversations with them. During my free time, I like to watch action or strategic English movies.

learn to let go
don’t hold on so tight

With so many variables, the chances of there being a single most efficient way, amongst all the millions of variations, is slim to none.

"There’s more than one right way"

This is something that I learned a while ago, and a phrase I often find myself repeating to remind myself, and others, that we stop searching for perfection – it’s impossible to find.

Pick one of the many ways that works and go with that. Get your creation into the wild where you can really start to learn what works, more quickly.

In turn, you’ll save time and energy, allowing you to concentrate on more important things in life.

fix first, polish later
you pull up outside later

You’re driving a brand new, top of the range, Mercedes-Benz, which just so happens to have a headlight out.

When you get out of the car people don’t say “hey nice car”, they’ll tell you you’ve got a broken headlight.

The same applies to your product - If it’s broken, users won’t care how good it looks.

Make sure the basics are working first, before you go showing off infront of everyone.

newborn clients
my life changed forever with the arrival of my children

I’ve been asked a few times by baby-free colleagues, “what’s it like to be a Dad?”

To which I reply, “it’s a lot like working on an exciting project with a new client.”

First there’s that exciting moment when you get them home, then you have to…

• learn what they want
• meet their needs
• be reactive
• learn when to say no
• put in some late nights, and some early starts.

It’s exhausting, but when you look back and see what you achieved, it’s all worth it.

what’s an idea worth?
creating a new idea is like an explorer setting off on a journey

There’s a long road ahead of you, lots of traveling to do, bridges to cross, dead ends to discover. Sometimes you won’t even know if you’re going in the right direction - relying on instincts and experience to get you through. It’s going to take a great deal of effort and determination.

Coming up with ‘the idea’ for a product is effortless by comparison. It’s as much a part of the journey as picking a direction to start walking in - the first moments of long exhausting hike.

How much is your idea worth? On it’s own… not much.

It’s time, care and consideration that add value to the final product.

Execution is everything.

trust in something
you have to trust in something

Your gut, destiny, life, karma, whatever. This approach has never let me down, and it has made all the difference in my life.

The only way to do great work is to love what you do. If you haven’t found it yet, keep looking. Don’t settle.

Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma — which is living with the results of other people’s thinking.

Stay Hungry. Stay Foolish.

love to love people
art of learning how to love

No matter how long you may live, you'll never stop learning. Every minute of every day brings new opportunities to learn something we've never known before. As long as we're open to receive, God will continue to teach us every day.

One of the most important facets I've learned about love is unselfishness, which is characterized in some book as a willingness to sacrifice one's own wishes for those of others. I've learned that true love will always adapt and adjust to the needs and desires of other people.
