Sticks & Stones..

Some people may say I'm naive.. ignorant.. immature.. but the fact is.. I'm easily effected by words..

Sticks & stones may break my bones, but words will never hurt me..

Nah, never believed in that saying.. :P

To me, I take words to heart.. maybe I'm putting too high of an expectation on myself.. but I know I'm good.. I know I can do better.. I know there are some areas I must work on.. so, you don't have to rub it in by saying it to my face.. hence, I get really annoyed by negative comments.. I get defensive at times.. I get in a rut the other times.. I have to seriously be conscious of my thoughts so that I don't spiral down.. not too long atleast..

On the other hand, I feed of positive comments.. I take even 'polite' remarks -- even when people don't really mean it.. Some might say I have a self-confidence issue.. to be honest, I think so too.. hehe.. Come on la, who doesn't like to be complemented.. just as long as you're not too dependent on it, why not indulge yourself.. a spoonful of sugar helps the medicine goes down.. ;)

I had a pretty good day today as a person I have high regards for commented
"I have read your blog.. you're a very cerebral thinker, analytical with philosophy thrown in as well... I can relate to and understand what you are writing. so nice to see that there are still thinking people out there... thinking on a bigger scale..."
I was smiling from ear to ear.. :)
Now if that was 100% true, why won't people listen to me more?? hehe

You see, I'm contented, not complaisant.. I strive to get full marks.. I'm looking forward to have '0' (zero) negative feedbacks.. gimme another year or two, I should be able to get there.. but in the meantime.. let me enjoy my small glories.. :)

Words without action, has no meaning...
Do / Deliver
that's the 3Ds of leading a 'life'...

Time to sweat...

I'm literally sweating in my work room as I'm typing this.. Man, it's hot!

In a few more days, it'll be MAY.. that means 5 months have passed.. we only have 7 months till 2009!!

For those who could recall by 'big mouth' as I was leaving my old job back in 2007 would probably understand why I'm 'sweating' now.. time is ticking for me to reach my 1st goal!
I know I'll be able to do it.. deep inside I can actually feel it.. but somehow, I'm still clueless on how I could achieve it.. hmmmm...

p/s: PD was fun.. ;)

One night stand...

Tomorrow I'll be conducting my first teambuilding seminar.. on my own!!
and guess what, I still haven't figured out what to do for the ice-breaker.. :P

It'll be a long drive down to PD.. that's for sure..

Simple equations of life..

Every now and then there would be people talking about life.. the meaning of life.. and so on..
To me, life is striking a balance between what you want to do and what you have to do.. put it in other words, you have your dreams and you have your duties..

In maths I'd probably turn out looking like this:


If you twist it around, you'll see that..
All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy.. life is just not fun when all you do is think about work...

On the other hand..
Life without taking any responsibilities or such is really just an illusion.. it's just too unreal.. you need to work to have food on your plate..

Some might say that there are people out there that are lucky enough to find a job that they enjoy doing and have a fulfilling life... but I then question, "what is luck?".. and lately I came to a conclusion that luck is doing the right things unconsciously.. to be more lucky I just need to do more so that I unconsciously hit the right things frequently or just be more conscious and aware of what I'm doing and repeat what's right.. opportunities are always there...

Got you thinking there for a minute, didn't I? ;)
