Hi, everyone,

I have a good news for you.

I am very pleased to inform you that the above lovely award is given by my lovely friend, Sashindoubutsu. Her blog Snapping Panda is one of my favorites. She has explained why she gave me such an award and I am deeply touched by her thought and action.

As the rule goes, the recipient should pass the award to 15 others who deserve it. After serious consideration, I decided to pass this Best blog award to all of you who share your thoughts with me. I love to hear your feedback, which sharpen my thoughts and I learn more and more from you here, because you teach me. I have also always loved different opinions and thoughts. To me, you all are the most interesting persons in my life.

I hope that you will continue to give me your feedback and we can always stay connected forever.

Hi! everyone,

Change is the natural phenomenon and it is the truth. One good news is that we are designed to adapt to daily changes due to aging, climate, environment whether you like it or not. We are not exempted from changes because our body is changing every minute. We are naturally designed to respond automatically to all these changes. As such, we should have the courage to celebrate this truth rather than resist change. 

It is a big lie if anyone claims that he resists changes. Why I dare to say so? Simply because whoever truly resist  change must be willing to restore to his initial position. You can not have both. Everything changes through time. It comes with package of pros and cons. We can't running a car with petrol at the same time not polluting the air. You can't be selective and keep the changes that bring good to you and refuse to accept those bad changes that come along with it -  that is the truth. In short, sometime you gain, sometime you learn.

As such, if you prepare and accept this truth, you are already set free and not living as the slave of limited beliefs. In reality, these limited beliefs have been ingrained in the system and have a strong influence on us causing us to be deceived. This illusion was planted so that we continuously believe it to be the truth without realising it. Consequently, we create a false "comfort zone" . Once this comfort zone disappears,  we will face reality as we have seen in the recent financial crisis in America.

Therefore, it is vitally important to accept this truth that changes are inevitable and good. It makes life more colourful and more meaningful. We have to realize that there is no progress without change.

Once you understand this truth, you will agree with me that it is true to say that people resist change. To illustrate my point further, may I allowed to ask you the following questions:-

a. Does any adult wants to keep his child born brain intact throughout his whole life ?

b. Does any adult wants to crawl with their hands and legs instead of walking with their legs?

c. Are you happy to reclaim your hunter role in the jungle that humans initially began with?

d. Are you happy to return to live in the jungle as humans began with?

If all these answers are in the resounding No. Then, it proves the points we all are agree unanimously that we are in favour of changes. Then what make you to argue that people refused changes? truly inconsistent with our findings. 

In this article I am going to explore why such a lie is planted into our belief system:-

1. For those who argue that people resist change because they are afraid of their personal loss. In reality, you gain some, you loss some. For those who can't see the whole picture clearly wanted to keep themselves status quo. They are unrealistic and do not have the courage to accept the truth. As a result, they have created unnecessary stress or pressure on themselves to suppress this  truth. Be wise, do not fight against the wave, but ride the wave of change that gives you new hope.

2. Because they are afraid of losing "false" control over their dominion. They forget that whatever their greatest strength is also their greatest weakness. The higher the suppression, the higher the rebellion will be. It is very sad that they refused to accept that the false control are in a way exposing them to higher risks. If it is left unchecked, it may drive them insane. Very good example is the Emperor Qin Shi Huang.

3. To argue that people feel awkward to change does not hold water. We are exposed to the truth that we are designed for changes. We begin with crawling, walking and running. It is a law of nature, how can we argue otherwise.

4. It is never up to us to say " Timing is not right for change" if we are not prepared for change. Are we ready for climate change? Is the timing ever right for the climate change? It illustrates the point that it is also another big lie if we say that timing is not right for change.

5. To argue that tradition is against change is not appropriate because tradition also evolves over time. Very good example is that wearing coat and tie is an universally accepted formal dress today regardless whether in the west or east. It is very clear that this does not hold water anymore.

By now, you should able to see clearly that people who tend to choose what to keep intact and what to change  actually look from their own perspectives and not from the truth sense. However, the truth is that  truth will  be ultimately revealed. I like to let the song "the wind of change"  sum up our discussion on changes.

Hi! everyone,

Nice to see you again.

In today's information society, we need to read and digest information  daily as information can change by the minute. However, most of us do not have the luxury of time to read whatever information that come to our hands. Therefore, as we are pressed for time, speed reading is no longer a luxury, but a necessity. Equally essential is that readers must be able to grasp and fully understand the message that come out from the reading materials.

To expedite the process of retaining information, we may need to use some of the tips listed below:-

1. Stay focus on what you need

You don't need to read every word from the piece of information you have. Stay focus on what you need, skipping process may be useful here. Take an bird's eye view at the table of contents. Look at the specific topics that can provide you with the specific information you need. Alternatively, you can make a quick assessment on how you can relate it with the specific topic you have in  mind. If the information is not relevant and currently not required, then drop it. 

2. Retain peace of mind

Stay cool and try not to be in a stressful state, it would not help you, but  will make it more difficult to concentrate in reading that material. As such, the information will not sink into your mind and heart.

Retaining peace is a skill and you need to master the skill to empower your concentration power, just like the dried sponge merge into water.

3. Repetition is the key of mastering

To master any skill of trade, you need to keep on repeating the process. Same as in speed reading. Setting a goal and consistently raising your bar  to the best you can cope with will keep you out of disappointment. Don't set unrealistic targets. No doubt, this takes time and practice, but it is worth your effort. Raise the bar as you progress and after you have gained confidence.

4. Sustaining your progress

Reaching the top is very much easier than staying on top. The same analogy can be drawn between making decision and managing decision. Once the decision is made, monitoring and managing that decision is more crucial to lead us to success. That's why you see lots of good and sound decisions fail to bear fruit.

5. Have faith in it

In life, you will get what you expect. As such, it is important for you to understand that you can't obtain something you do not believe in. So, you must have the right perspective and keep on moving towards your goals. No doubt, you will face with some challenges along the way, which will mould and shape you accordingly, before you can move to the next level of success. The higher the level of success you have, the stronger the strength you need to sustain it. This is the law of nature which has been proven in mankind's history.

I hope you find the above tips useful and beneficial. I am sure you may have other useful tips which I may not know about. In this regard, I appeal to you to forward it either through comments, or email to me at I look forward to hearing from you,

Thank you for your precious time and wish you success,

James Oh
