If you are interested in topics of personal development, productivity, software engineering, people management, and anything in between, you would find this blog valuable.

I write short, atomic, and actionable micro-blog posts on macro-ideas. I promise to publish three times a week on Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday.

Here is the table of content for this blog. I hope you find it useful. Looking forward to sharing more content with you.


Who am I?

My name is Mayank Verma. I have over a decade of experience working in the tech industry. In my career, I have played various roles starting from an intern to a tech lead. I am currently in a people manager role at big tech. 

I am writing this blog to share everything I have learned (and still learning) in my various roles. My goal is to share actionable takeaways that can be immediately applied to any workspace. I am choosing engineering and tech as the means to drive these takeaways. However, they can be applied to any organization where there are people and processes.

I have iterated over these lists and improved them over my career. Until now these lists existed in my private notes which I shared with few close friends. Seeing how successful these takeaways have been, I have decided to share this with a wider audience.

I hope these takeaways are as helpful to you as they have been to me. If you find them useful, I encourage you to share this with your close circle of friends and family.

Why is the blog called ‘Thinking Through’?

As an engineer, I was taught to think through every engineering problem. This meant 

  • Reasoning with the problem.

  • Rationally and objectively evaluating the problem, and 

  • Form an understanding of the idea before attempting to solve it. 

Over the years, thinking-through has served as a reliable and successful mental model for solving problems. A model that I regularly fall back on. Every post in this blog is a problem I have tried to solve using thinking through mental model. Hence, it made sense to name it so.
