A child’s raw love and giving to God

I was so touched on Saturday 20th April 2024, when I attended children church with my kids – what happened was my oldest kid, Olivia, cupped her 2 hands together, filled with coins and emptied them into the giving basket. I was shocked at first. My mind did a quick calculation, with that amount it … Read more

What Would You Do If You Retire Early?

I was asked this question a couple of weeks back by my crypto mentor, and yes, as usual, my brain didnt process it that fast then since it was a sudden question to me, but after a couple of weeks on-and-off pondering the question during quiet moments, I can explore a few answers. Firstly, for … Read more

Sipping Coconuts

Happened to chance upon one of the founders / writers behind SippingCoconuts.com, and I was so inspired (and deeply reminded) when they told me that in 5 months time, they’re taking a long break together with their three kids (10, 7 and 1) to travel and see the world. To show the kids that there’s … Read more

Your Biggest Enemy Is Yourself

Not that trash-talking jock, or that mean “friend” we all have. Or your seemingly mean neighbour, friends, family. Or maybe you were born poor and in a not optimal household, city or country. It’s you. There’s no one else to point your grubby finger to blame: “He / she did it”. Did what? If you … Read more

Next, Aggressively Cut Unnecessary Expenses

It’s not just how much cashflow and profit you can make, but it’s also how much you can keep. After all, compare these 2 cases: Perhaps you can argue that John is enjoying life more, will have greater networks and perhaps more work / wealth / investment opportunities…but really, who knows? Assuming nothing changes, I’m … Read more

Start Ups & Entrepreneurs, You NEED Cashflow

This is a rant. I’ve met so many…too many aspiring enterprises and entrepreneurs, who are blinded by their “big dreams” of “being” an entrepreneur, that they fail this most basic concept of entrepreneurship and business: That ALL businesses and start-ups need cashflow, to survive, thrive and grow. It’s so frustrating at times, when I come … Read more

Are You OK With Being Unpopular?

I’d been writing a series of playing by your game/play-style, and now that I look back and think about it, it’s really a topic about facing your deepest fears — That you may be rejected when when you embrace who you are (ie playing by your playstyle). It’s a bloody deep-seated fear that deep, instinctual … Read more

You’re You, So Play It YOUR Way

I’m coming back to the topic of “personalized playstyle”, and it bears mentioning again because it’s just so dang easy to be caught up when you look left and right, and see people who are more successful than you, and be tempted to follow the way they walk, talk, carry themselves. It’s perfectly okay to … Read more

A soon-to-be ex-colleague joked about joining us for our company meals

To which I said no.

If you decide to leave, or had already left, for whatever reason, then for that reason alone you’re no longer part of company and not entitled to join us for our meals and good times right?

In some areas of life you can pick and choose what you like but when it comes to work, you cant pick and choose the stuff that you like only…plus company meals are for people who are in the company, working and going through good and bad times together.

All the best!

In the face of death, our truest self materializes

This is the self that is either forgotten due to busyness or hidden away for fear of rejection, or no difference if we’d always been open ha. When I sat in the quietest of moments in the hospital, waiting for my appointment to do a heart MRI to make sure I dont have a specific … Read more
