Where’s the line?

On my mind now 19 May 2015 | 0 Comments

Finally I had an opportunity to speak about this issue which has been on my mind for a while now.
Where do we draw the line between relationships and accountability?
As a result of a relationship in business spanning for more than 20 years, how far would you go to forgive a mistake? Or let me push [...]

Only One, Only One, Only One

On my mind now 6 May 2015 | 0 Comments

Imagine a movie in which the main actor is acting in all the roles. Imagine Johnny Depp (one of my favourite actors), in his Pirates of the Caribbean acting not only as Captain Jack Sparrow, but also playing the role of Hector Barbosa, Captain Davy Jones and even Captain Edward Teach (the pirates even other [...]

30 Years Later

Book Review, On my mind now 22 April 2015 | 0 Comments

I remember being in a hotel room in Bangkok when I was 17, and looked inside the drawer and found a book titled ‘The Teachings of Buddha’, published by a Japanese Buddhist Foundation.
Naturally interested in studies of religion and theology, I found it to be an interesting read. So many parables and powerful phrases, many [...]

The Whatsapp menace

Communication, On my mind now 18 April 2015 | 0 Comments

Right, so you got this application on your mobile contraption? I bet it says last seen like 10-seconds ago?
I find this application to have taken over people’s lives. People live on this and depend on it too much. Whatever makes you happy.
Yes, I do use this as well, mainly for fun, keeping in touch with [...]

Where do I begin?

On my mind now 17 April 2015 | 0 Comments

Gosh it has been ages since I posted on my own blog. It’s like a long hiatus.
So much has happened since, it’s like going through three major upgrades of a software application. So, I am a bit lost as to where to even begin.
Therefore I will post randomly – the expressions written may not necessarily [...]

Your measuring tape

On my mind now 30 November 2014 | 0 Comments

I once read a line from somewhere: ‘My measure of success is not how high I will fly, but how much higher will you fly’.
Have you had people in your life whom you have taught, and then they went on to become as successful or even more successful than you?
I myself have at least one, [...]

Be the bigger person

General, On my mind now 23 November 2014 | 0 Comments

A recent communication between two people had me copied in it where the content of the correspondence was not particularly sweet, for the lack of better words.
It would have been so easy for the recipient to retort in equal stance and tone, which they did. Quite understandably so.
A series of replies back and forth then [...]

One liner? I wish, too!

On my mind now 10 June 2013 | 0 Comments

It is old school (as in recent old school) to think that if you own a business and if you have a team on the ground, then minimal communications with them will be sufficient.
With the presence of emails and even emails from smartphones and text message service, it is very easy to simply end up [...]

Close the Pandora’s box

Networking Expert, On my mind now 31 January 2013 | 0 Comments

I thought I should pen in some thoughts about some lines which need not be mentioned when attending networking meetings.
If you unfortunately arrived late to a meeting, get right in. When it’s your turn to speak, do not say, ‘Oh, I am sorry for being late’. Because by the time it was your turn to [...]

Moving on.. in 2013

On my mind now 1 January 2013 | 0 Comments

We normally have a quiet New Year’s Eve at home to avoid all the rush while many other revelers usher their New Year at countdown parties here and there.
However, this year after a dinner out, the thought of a movie came and Life of Pi was on show at the cinema nearby the restaurant.
It’s a [...]
