A valuable lesson for a happier life

Life is 10% what happens to you and 90% how you react to it. – Charles R. Swindoll


Saw this wonderful video at Meir Kay’s Facebook page.

In life there are many things fighting for our attention.

What is important to you? Prioritize them.

What is less important to you? Don’t spend so much time on them.

How about some time for beer with friends? Just go for it =)

We all have this one shot at life. Make it count.

Spend the time with those who matters. Spread the joy. Inspire others.



The most important thing in the Olympic Games is not winning but taking part; the essential thing in life is not conquering but fighting well. – Pierre de Coubertin

Essentialism is about asking yourself one simple question : “If I didn’t have to do everything and anything, what is the ONE thing that I need to do in order to bring me to the highest level of my life?

And the follow up question would be : “Have you done it?” and “How much time do you spend doing it?”

Essentialism is a lifestyle broken down to two sections:
1. removing all the non-essentials out of your life
2. adding all the essentials into your life

As important as it is do de-clutter your life from the non-essential, it is equally important to do the main things in your life.

What is your essential tasks in life that you MUST do today? And how much time do you spend doing it?



Busy Day

I attribute my success to this – I never gave or took any excuse. – Florence  Nightingale

Looking back at my blog, I was disappointed. What a lack of update on this blog.

But I have my reasons. I was busy at work. Been working till late at night, every day.   I even supported the factory on weekends.

Everything is urgent. Everything is important. I can barely take time out for leisure, let alone this little blog of mine.

Reasons? Or is it excuses?

Not to say that I was lying. I really did work till late at night. I really did go back to work on weekends.

But what’s really important? If this blog is important to me, I will find a time out for it, regardless of what.

Determine your priority. Not that we need to do everything.

But we must do the things that matter to us.

To me, this blog is important. It chronicles my journey in self development. To see how far I have gone, and how much further can I go.

As much as we need to work hard at work, we must work harder on ourselves. In improving ourselves.

Work is just part of our lives. There are many other factors in our lives.

We shouldn’t use an excuse of “busy at work” as an excuse to excuse ourselves from our responsibilities, from our commitments, from our leisure, from our families, from our friends.

Are you busy with your work? Did you neglect other aspects in your life? If it is important for you, you will schedule time out for it. What is the one thing that you will put into your busy schedule today?
