Don’t quit.

How many times we've stumbled  upon hurdles before we call it a quit? Or have we misinterpreted "hurdles"? More often than not, we think we've got everything figured out, just to be let down by occasional disconnections between plan and reality. Just because plans did not turn out the way we want to them to, … Continue reading Don’t quit.

Motto of 2019.

10 days to 2020. 19,530 words written excluding this piece. This year, I have taken the “go for it” approach. Ambitious with big dreams yet laying low, feeding my knowledge hunger through observing and active listening to others, as much as spreading thoughts with people around me. ‘Give and take ‘, a simple metaphor with substantial … Continue reading Motto of 2019.

All she wanted.

A letter was handed to her that morning. Expecting nothing less, she frazzled the envelope and started running through the content, line by line.

Does it mean that we no longer excel in what we do? Most parents would love to believe that their children are ones in a million. Talented … Continue reading The best motivator.

How much better we can be?

Often we are caught in the paradox of how good we are to what we can possibly achieved. Convincing ourselves on how good we are and yet not downplaying competition are complex balances to manage. Self-generated positive belief is necessary in generating courage to face challenges. It is not that we are over-confident. Instead, it's … Continue reading How much better we can be?

Then and now.

It was just by luck I randomly picked up a drama series advertised on television and instantly got hooked. I started searching on the line of casts when I came across a short interesting video. It was a short clip of an actor's sharing about his five-years career milestone since he started in Shanghai Theatre … Continue reading Then and now.

Reading others’ blog.

Utilising blog as venue to express our thoughts to the world is pretty common. Synthesising thoughts into words so that they don't miggle in our brain for too long, storing write ups for future read and reread, and learning lessons from the past are some of the amazing perks of blogging. The more readers we … Continue reading Reading others’ blog.
