Lion, a symbol of courage, leadership and focus. In movies like Lion King or Chronicles of Narnia, lion is always portray as the leader with courage and laser focus on their objective. On the other hand, lion in Wizard of Oz is without courage. But courage is alway there in him.
Cockroach, a pest. Usually related to disgust and dirty. Beside that, cockroach is also very persistent and hardy. Their ancestors were from 354 million years ago. While dinosaurs didn’t survived the catastrophe, cockroach did. It was said that the cockroach probably can survive a nuclear blast.
Why am I posting about lion and the disgusting cockroach? (I’m scared of cockroach)
Ever been stopped by your own imagination? Your imagination is so powerful that it can create a huge monster to hold you from getting the things that you want in life. This monster is good at confusing you. Resulting in you losing the ability to differentiate between illusion and reality.
The name of this monster is Chain Monster. It holds a chain on its right hand, sniffing around for spaces that is manifesting its presence. The moment it sees an opportunity to be manifested, fed and grow, it will throw his chain around you, leeching for as long as it can.
Are you creating the Chain Monster in your life? Are you being chain down by your own imagination?
Is cheap really good?
Who doesn’t like cheap and good stuff? Getting something of high value for a low price is like striking lottery. Haven’t you heard of a penny save is a penny earn?
Is cheap really good? It depends.
Last week alone, I got some cheap deals and a not so cheap deal.
I was celebrating my wife’s birthday in our neighbouring country. This happened to be the most value for money celebration we ever had. The best thing of course, my “boss” was very happy.
A very exciting week ahead. After the long weekend, there are much to be done this week. The final stage of an innovation training project for a school client. Hosting a friend from Malaysia. A new marketing campaign. And a new workshop this coming Saturday.
Extremely excited and nervous about the new workshop. There will be new content and a new way of conducting the workshop. Excited because this is the first of its kind, there are no other procrastination courses out there yet. Excited because I’m going to meet new participants.
Why a workshop about procrastination?
Why do I post something about losing your confidence? Because confidence is important to success, but many feel the opposite. Many feel that when you achieve success then you will have confidence. It is actually when you have confidence then you will have success.
So why would a money seminar sells much better than a confidence seminar?
Maybe because not many will admit they lack confidence, but many will say not enough money. You can do this test by asking friends, “do you have money to lend me?”
Managing Team & People
Managing team and people are fundamentals to any organization. Unless you are a one-man team who just like to play a small game, otherwise learning about managing people to create a world class team is necessary.
I have the honour to conduct a workshop about managing people and team for China Taiping (Insurance) Singapore on 28 July 2012.
When it comes to people or team, we wouldn’t divert too much away from clear communication within the team.
Laughing is the best medicine in life. Do you laugh at life? Have you seen people who don’t laugh? I have! In some trainings that I did, sometimes there were one or two people who would never laugh at my joke. Some people just take life too serious.
What is causing you to tense up? What get you to frown all the time? What have you to be serious on very little thing in life?
