This Is Your Life

I can’t help myself but to clip this in my Evernote, my laptop and now, my blog. This is your life. I believe in Hereafter life but not a reborn in the next cycle of life.

If you don’t like your job, quit. Start doing things you love. Live your dream and share your passion.

I’ve wrote on THAT, didn’t I?

And so I’ve started to write at a Malaysian-based globally recognized opinionated site, Unity Bond. Whether you give a damn or not, I don’t even give a damn. But I do give a damn to myself because it has been a very long time since I last wrote seriously. One year? Two years? Welcome back, self.

I have one more commitment to concentrate on. Since the site is not comment-able, I welcome any feedback be it at Twitter or here in my blog.

1 and a half months to go before the year 2012 ends. And I’m short of $10 iTunes credit to complete my 2012 albums collection.

1 and a half months to go before the year 2012 ends. And I’m short of RMxxx to complete my never ending wishlist. God knows why.

Up next in the upcoming post, some reviews introduction to a few underrated newly self-discovered artists who deserve at least a recognition from an Asian who they don’t even know do exist on this small planet called the Earth. Don’t worry. The Mayans were wrong. The world isn’t coming to the end this December. They postponed the date to 2014, remember? So take a breath and say “Yes! I still have time and 2013 budget to spend on these artists!”

What Makes You Right?

There are always things that we hope we have never done and there are always things that we hope we have done previously. While the former sounds more like we are expressing regret, the latter gives a little bit positive insight, in hoping to make things better than they are now.

Listen to the olders because they have more experiences than you have.

While this saying is true in some aspects, it’s also a bit inadvertent. Money doesn’t totally make you rich (because you can also be considered rich if you have vast knowledge but little money) and experiences themselves don’t make you totally right. What lessons had they learned through the experiences that they had gone through? What are the values do they take to make them right at the end?

You went through an experience of making a wrong decision, which has probably led to the worst moment of your life. From there, what did you do to turn things around instead of just saying “how I wish I have never done that!” ? Are you now rich by experience and at the end did nothing to turn a new leaf in your life? How does that make you right? If you think you are now richer by one experience, yes you are right but if you think you are right because you did right (by doing nothing to change towards betterment), then you are wrong. You have done nothing!

What if, you do regret your decision in the past and you consequently make your mind to let bygone be bygone and march forward to the new chapter of your life? You’re not only richer by experience but you are also now one step behind of proving that you are right. You are right because you make your mind to leave the bad behind, take the first step towards betterment and hope for a bright positive future that will leave a smile on your face.

And there you go. Say you made changes towards yourself, you have been positive-minded all the way from the bottom of the wheel to right at the top. Ahah! You can now be proud of yourself because now you are right! You are right in making the decision to make changes for a better life. You are right in taking steps to be where you are now. You are also right because you turn things that have made you regret in the past into a booster to move on and change things accordingly.

I wouldn’t deny that to move on takes a lot of efforts. Everything needs efforts. If you are keen to prove that there are a lot of things that you wish you have never done, then start working to prove that you have never wanted to. Or else, words are just words, and things will stay the way you have set them to be ‘unintentionally’.

Hate Your Job Or Live Your Dream?

I was at the office – reading an article on how much do people hate their jobs more than anything else; when something came across my mind; why do people still do jobs that they hate and abandon their dreams?

First thing to note is because they NEED more money. While some people say you can’t buy happiness with money, there are still nonetheless plenty of stuff can be bought to make you happy. Tech-savvies do get happy when they buy new gadgets to play with. Shopaholics do get happy when they go shopping and swiping their credit cards here and there and later repay the cost with their salaries.

An engineer isn’t necessarily happy with his job. The job might pay him well but there is something missing. An element of doing tasks with passion, willingness and desire. Some people go hunt high-paid jobs instead of pursuing their dreams simply because their dream-jobs don’t return them a favour; high pays.

Should we choose a high-pay job or living our great dream life with little money offered?

I’ve lived for slightly more than 20 years. And I’ve moved to not less than 4 states across the country. I’ve known many of my parents’ friends. I’ve witnessed some who lived their dream lives. Material-wised, they were decent. They had what they need and they owned one or two luxurious stuff, living with the beloved ones and had a lot of time to be spent together.

I’ve also witnessed some of the friends who lived luxurious lives because they were the executives. Less time spent with the kids and didn’t even have the opportunity to dine together on one same table. They lived in big houses, owned cars that took the spotlight on the roads but deep inside they were stressful. They spent too much time thinking work-related problems that they forgot they have other more important responsibilities back at home.

Living your dream life gives you an inner peace. That’s what you want all these while. You know you can never be regretful even when you are down with so many problems. Deep inside, you know you can tackle them because you are passion-driven. Why bother to get a job that has high pay when you can choose a desired job that pay you less, live the life that you have always wanted and at the same time gain side income through small online entrepreneurship, for an instance? Look things in a wider perspective to reach the same objective.

People can be committed to their work but deep inside they’re dead. That’s the point when you start to be less productive, not creative, inefficient, and always the first to punch out.

Ouh well, that’s quite a serious stuff to write about in my first post at Unity Bond. Hopefully that doesn’t leave you with a perception that I’m a serious guy who always talk serious in real life. Please don’t hesitate to keep in touch with me or give feedback of my posts at my Twitter. I won’t bite you, I promise!
