A colleague at work was very thoughtful to forward me an email containing the following content. I think it was cool and contained in depth message. We should grab hold of the morale. Are you the old man or the young man? Or are you having the character like the old lady or the sexy girl? The choice is yours. We are what we want to be… πŸ™‚


If you were to ask your neighbor,
“What would give you peace of mind?” he might tell you,
“A vacation in Bermuda!” or
“An extra hundred grand would give me peace!”, or
“A new Ferrari would make me content!”

But going places – and getting stuff – is usually a temporary solution …
Peace of mind rarely comes from getting more stuff.
Getting more stuff usually leads to wanting even more stuff!
Peace of mind starts with being grateful for what we have right now.


When we are thankful for what we have – for the friends we have, and for the things we’ve got,we attract more good people and good things!
People who always complain about what they DON’T HAVE, stay stuck. Complainers attract more things to complain about!
It is a law of life. It’s hard to explain, but you can observe it around you. We get more of what we dwell upon.

That’s why all the spiritual masters have taught the same lesson …
“Start by being thankful. Be happy with what you have now, and more will come your way.”

It’s practical advice.
Every time you say a silent “thank you” you become more peaceful – and more power.


OK…. enough about those stuff above. Grab the message and install it inside your left side brain. Now, I’m asking you to shout out what is the ONLY piece of word that you hate this month? Why? Why asked this question? He he…. because I myself hate the word “BUSY“…. I hate it so much if I heard this: “I’m busy lah”, “Aku tengah sibuk nie…”, “Sorry lah, aku memang tak boleh…Aku sibuk sangat….”, “Sorry, I’m so busy”, “I can’t visit you, I’m too busy…”….

Gosh… I bloody hate that word… Even if I have tonnes of work, I won’t be using that word anymore… I hate it… I think I can also claim myself to be busy as well. But, hey…you and me only have exactly 24 hours. You’re not going to have the privilege of enjoying 28 hours or 33 hours a day. Not in the next life! If you’re busy, do you think I’m not busy? Do you think you’re the only human being in the world who is f—–g busy!!! Then, are you the Prime Minister? Or are you the US Secretary of Defense? Hey, I’m an engineer, a family man, part time blogger, going to be internet marketeer (IM), I spent 2 hours on the road on a daily basis and I’m damn busy …. ops… don’t want to use that word…. I’ll try and sneak out to get some time to blog…. You know what?… I’m substituting a slice (maybe more, my wife will say that…) of my quality time with my family to blog… Why? Is it for fun? is it because of hobby? Nope…. I have my own target… Not sure about you guys (but I believe you guys have some good goals as well from blogging). I’m not going to cover about this here. Perhaps in later entry, I’ll cover why I blog and why I’m pressuring myself to be online….

Bottom line, what you can do is highly optimize the time that you have. That’s all…. Manage your time wisely. Time is so precious that if we failed to spend it optimumly, we will be a loser…. Then, what about those guys who don’t know what to do and have all the time in the world? Wow!!…that’s good… I bet he or she may not have a goal in life… He or she may be so comfortable in life that they don’t need to learn, explore, be occupied with something useful etc… Personally I don’t wish to be in their shoes.

Ops… sorry for all the nonsense… I just want to release the 16 bars pressure accumulated in me. Hmm…to Budeen and Bent… I just read your blog and I realized that you’ve quoted the word “busy”…. Well, this is not meant for you. So, please don’t be offended with my nasty rambling. It’s dedicated to …….

Share and Enjoy

    @ Catzer,

    Well, that’s something I don’t want to jeopardize – time for family. But at the same time we need to work for our goal and ambition. We need to work hard, efficiently, effectively, wisely and use every moment to enrich our live to reach the goal but maintain the love around us.
