Hi ! everyone,

Lately I received the mail below from my friends and I find it very interesting. As such, I like to share it with you and perhaps it can give you another perspective. Please read it and give it a serious thought and appreciate if you could share your thoughts. Thank you in advance for your kind participation.  

...appreciate what you have, keep it simple. Chasing dreams often end going in circles.

Interesting perspective
"Life" explained by an MBA graduate

A boat docked in a tiny Mexican fishing village.
A tourist
complimented the local fishermen on the quality of their fish and asked
how long it took him to catch them.

"Not very long." they answered in unison.
"Why didn't you stay out longer and catch more?"
The fishermen explained that their small catches were sufficient to meet their needs and those of their families.

"But what do you do with the rest of your time?"

"We sleep late, fish a little, play with our children,
and take siestas with our wives.
In the evenings, we go into the village to see our friends,
have a few drinks, play the guitar, and sing a few songs.
We have a full life."

The tourist interrupted,
"I have an MBA from Harvard and I can help you!
You should start by fishing longer every day.
You can then sell the extra fish you catch.
With the extra revenue, you can buy a bigger boat."

"And after that?"

asked the fisherman.

"With the extra money the larger boat will bring,
you can buy a second one and a third one
and so on until you have an entire fleet of trawlers..
Instead of selling your fish to a middle man,
you can then negotiate directly with the processing plants
and maybe even open your own plant.

You can then leave this little village and move to Mexico City,
Los Angeles, or even New York City!

From there you can direct your huge new enterprise."

"How long would that take?"
asked the fisherman.

"Twenty, perhaps twenty-five years.
" replied the tourist.

"And after that?"
asked the fisherman.

The tourist answered
" Afterward? Well my friend, that's when it gets really interesting, "
answered the tourist, laughing. "When your business gets really BIG,
you can start buying and selling stocks and make Millions of DOLLARS!

"Millions? Really? And after that?"
asked the fisherman.

"After that you'll be able to retire,
live in a tiny village near the coast,
sleep late, play with your children,
catch a few fish, take a siesta with your wife
and spend your evenings drinking and enjoying with your friends.

"That’s what I am doing now!!”
Replied the fisherman

The moral of this story is:

Know where you're going in life....
you may already be there!!

Wake up. Do not chase after your shadow. Vanity is the answer.

Hi! Everyone,

No doubt no one can be totally exempted from stress and anxiety, but what is more important is to know precisely, how to make use of it to bring benefits to us, and not harm. The key to handle it properly become a  necessity and not a luxury as today's information age is changing so rapidly. People not only need to think fast, but have to act fast as well. Stress can creep in and claim lives easily regardless how fit you are physically or how young are.

In this article, I am going to share with you some of the tips, from my personal experience, which I find useful and I hope they will be useful to you. To simplify, I have listed them down in point form, as below :-

1. Sleep and rest sufficiently
Adequate sleep and rest not only assure that our bodies are well rested, but  also allow our bodies to replenish energy. It operates just like the battery which perform remarkably well after being recharged. However, if you over stress yourself over a certain period of time, you will discover that you need almost double the normal time to restore yourself back to its initial position. At the end of the day, you tend to lose more than what you have initially gained.

2. Be contented
Being  content not only prevents you from indulging into unnecessary negative emotions that will harm you, but also helps you to stay in control at all times. Your inner peace will calm you and guide you wisely because you are able to see things at the wider and right perspective. As such, you will not rush into doing unnecessary things that will drain off your energy.

3. Follow your body rhythm
Setting deadline is good in the sense that it drives you to stay focus on a particular task. However, unrealistic dateline may not only cause you to be moody, but also affects your morale and confidence, if left unchecked.

By contrast, I find that my productivity tend to go much higher if I were to follow my body rhythm. When I am at my peak, I can finish similar task three to four times faster than my normal required time. So, schedule your creative works at your low peak time so as to maximize your outputs.

4. Cultivate a good habit  
To avoid unnecessary stress, we need to discipline and live within our means.  Needless to say, spending beyond our means/budget can be very stressful especially when you are also hit by other unexpected incidents. 

5. Exercise
Appropriate and adequate exercise is a sure way to keep you healthy and relieve you from stress. You are encouraged to do light exercise for about 10 minutes daily when you wake up. If you really cannot, then finding time to walk everyday is also another good substitute, such as taking the stairs instead of the elevator, take your time roaming around when buying groceries.

6. Do List
Write down what you need to do and schedule them accordingly. I find it is very useful as it gives me better control - you are able to see the overall big picture and you know precisely how to act upon them. So, plotting your daily schedule will save you time, money and energy. Try it out and you will be surprised of its result, especially for those who have not try them out before.

7. Laugh it out
Laugh more, folks. Whoever laugh more seem to enjoy life more, and enjoying yourself is an easy way to beat stress. Stress may cause negative emotion such as wanting to kick something. Laughing it out is a sure way to beat stress. Cultivate a joyful heart, greet and smile at people more often. Find humour in life and stay well connected with others.  Do not complaint when something goes wrong, but laugh it out. Take your mind off from work and have fun! Do not get upset easily over petty things. In short, a joyful heart is the best medicine.

8. Read the Bible/Pray over it.
Reading the Bible every night before going to bed may help you stay fresh the next morning. Pass all your worries, stress to Him who will lead you to overcome them effortlessly. His wisdom and grace will sustain you and relieve you from all the stress/issues that you are currently facing.

Hi! friends. Now I want to throw the ball to your court and I am sure you have learn from your experience, which you may want to share it with us. Please forward them through comments so that we can sharpen our experience. Thanks and look forward to your kind participation.

Hi! everyone,

Procrastination is a silent killer. It works like diabetis which will cause dyfunction of our other organs and ultimately bring death to us. Similarly, procrastination causes inaction but affects  us as we indulge deeply in unnecessary causes. Therefore, it is best to understand its characteristics and take appropriate actions so as not to be ingrained with such a habit.

In this article, I have listed some of the tips which I find useful and effective in beating this unhealthy habit.

1.Act now

To overcome it is to do it now. This sounds glaringly obvious, but many people lose sight of this fundamental skill. It’s not because  we do not know what we should do; but rather that we have totally forgotten how to response to the situation. Hence, you should know how to get yourself to do it instantly without letting doubts go through your thoughts. Repeat it several times till you get accustom to this habit.

2. Do not multitask.

Please don't get me wrong and I am not against it. I am great at doing many things at same time and I have to admit that I love multitasking. But we have to be aware of the danger that we may never actually complete any of them. Trying to do several things without paying much attention will lead you to either unfinished or poor quality work. But if you are not caught in such a situation, I congratulate and encourage you to continue.

3. Set a dateline and schedule it accordingly

To stay focus on your goals, you need to set your goals according to your priorities. To ensure that you carry it out accordingly, it is appropriate to schedule it with a dateline. The danger of no datelines is that it may cause you to postpone things indefinitely.

4. Stay focus on your preset goals

I find that most often we keep changing our goals frequently until we have a moving target that caused us confusion which leads to inaction. To beat such a habit, always stay focus on our goal and keep on working on it till you achieve it. In reality, you will get what you expect from it so long as you keep on working on it. Persistence is the key to success.

Here, I have to admit that surrounding events can distract us from our focus point. Therefore,  always stay in control and drive yourself forcefully towards your goals. I also do not deny that it is easier said than done. Practise, practise and practise is the way to beat it. There is no other way to overcome it than to put it into practice. No surprise to see success begets success.

Hi folks. Now I want to throw the ball to your court and I am sure you have learn from your experience, which you may want to share it with us. Please forward them through comments so that we can sharpen our experience. Thanks and look forward to your kind participation.
