It starts today …..

For some it will still be a continuos journey towards a long term goal.

For others it will be a new phase, a new start to achieve  new targets  this year.

Learn from the past, be stronger than the past, be more determined than the past, be smarter than the past.

Wishing everyone an extremely successful year ahead.

You HOLD YOUR DESTINY IN YOUR OWN HANDS.

2021

New Year 2021 ……
.
.
When we can dance in a packed dance floor and have a drink in a crowded bar.

When a sneeze and cough are just a common cold and we just need Vit-C and not a vaccine.

When we can hug, cheek-kisses and touch without fear.

When we do not have to be apprehensive when meeting new people.

What else ? What else ?

Hopefully 2020 – has thought us to not take things for granted, be more compassionate and refocus on our priorities in life.

The kid inside you …

We must never loose that “little boy” inside of us. As we progress through life, we sometimes build a wall, a facade ; to protect ourselves, to represent our position, to demonstrate our capabilities or even to hide insecurities.

Perhaps in  search for happiness , fullfillment ?

But happiness was when we ran barefooted in the soccer field, climbed tress and skinny dipping in a river. I believe most of us missed those days ; and should incorporate moments of our past in to our present  lives.

We do not need to climb trees today but we can still have a bottle of wine and enjoy loud unrestricted laughter with our good old friends of yesteryears.

Who are You ?

A reflection, a self evaluation.
Are you a shark  ?

If you are , do you realize it ?
Or are you trying to climb trees ?

People can change.
Skills can be learnt.

But do also check out the “nature” of your SELF.

If you are a shark , then do not even try to climb a tree, for you will never beat a monkey.

And if you are a monkey, then do not even try swimming with the sharks in the ocean. You will be eaten alive.

And if you are indeed a shark, then behave like one too and not be a guppy.

WHO ARE YOU ?

***** **** and if you are a guppy, don’t pretend to be a shark too

Listen with no prejudice

Many people feel that they are  listening well.

But their minds are already conjuring up answers even before they understand the real problem.

If you want to listen well, empty your thoughts first. Absorb and focus to what is being said. Have the sincerity to understand.

LISTEN WITHOUT ANY PREJUDICES.

Bear in mind you do not have an answer for everything.
And that’s entirely OK.

Sorry

A mistake made.
A wrong turn taken.

If only you are willing to say sorry, willing to own up, stop being defensive and take sincere actions to correct your fault, life will be less complicated and meaningful relationship will be forged.

Nobody is perfect … and the ability to admit your shortcomings shows dignity and humility.

New-ME

As we forge ahead into the new normal era, we will need to redefine our niche and strengths again.

We will need to adapt, change and re-change many times to achieve a balance on what our new routines should be like.

Our past strengths could be our new weaknesses today. Be prepared to leave some of our “old me” behind. 
Create a NEW-ME …..a one that is stronger and compassionate as well as living a life of mutual respect and empathy.

Way of life …

How does one tell one’s daughter to use less of her mobile phone when he himself has heightened the usage of his own handphone in this Covid19 lockdown ?


Over the past few years, we seem to have acknowledged the fact that children growing up today are spending too much time on their mobile phones. The “people to people” interaction seem to be missing significantly. 

Most social interaction and activities are done through their mobiles. Chatting, gaming, shopping, googling, posting about themselves (and others)  and even just merely “scrolling to see what others are doing” have become a daily favorite hobby weekdays or weekends alike. Some are even expressing that being online is a relaxing therapy and they can be stressed up if they have no access to Instagram, FB or WA.


Is this an unhealthy way of growing up ? Or are we just being old-fashion stuck in our own minds on how the future generation should behave ? Did we experience Gojek, Tokopedia and Grab when we were growing up years ago ? Did we ever imagine we could ever be “prisoners”  to the wrath of the Covid19  ?


Humbled by the current situation and reality, who are we to judge ? How can we ever predict and dictate what is best for our children in this one single aspect of life on their “need and addiction to mobile phones” ?
