Tastefully arrogant …

Its “funny” that sometimes one is too shy to be proud of what they have or what they have accomplished.

Too humble  ?
Well, sometimes,  humility is not a strength.

Stylish and “classy-arrogance” may be needed to get noticed.

Believe in your YELLOW umbrella and “shout” to everyone that it is indeed the greatest colour and only those with exquisite taste can appreciate it.

2  points ….
–  believe in YOURSELF & what you have
–  a slight tinge of arrogance may be needed to promote YOU.

Finally, if you do not have a yellow umbrella, perhaps you should make one.

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

Forgetting

FORGETTING.

A caption from the book
SELAMAT MENUNAIKAN IBADAH PUISI
by Joko Pinurbo

The easiest job to do is “forgetting”.
No need for intelligence. No need for education.  Just a little thought.

That is why many people do not like calendars, clocks and writing. It inhibits “forgetting”.

Seemingly, forgetting feels good. Liberating. Temporary.

The main enemy of “forgetting” is “WHEN”.
The best friend of “forgetting” is “WHENEVER”

It is often too that WHEN  and WHENEVER gets along well together.

(translated as understood by WL)

Listen …..

Listen to learn
Listen to understand
Listen to serve  
Listen to solve a problem
Listen before you speak.

You will be more successful in selling if you listen better. Poor listening skills leads to wrong proposition and you will be wasting everyone’s time.

Not every customer is your customer. If you listen well, then you will also know when to walk away or when to keep quiet.

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.
