Most of our reading materials are more educational or informational. Magazines wise, we read the Success Magazine, Dr. Oz’s The Good Life, Women’s Health, Eating Well, amongst others. Books wise, most are on personal development. The Success Principles, Blue Ocean Strategy, How Not to Die, etc.
Even during long commute times, we listen to the likes of Tony Robbins, Tim Ferris and other podcasts.
If these sound BORING to you. Well, that’s OK.
But, my guilty pleasure? Well, I’ve read all 7 books of Harry Potter, The Twilight series, Hunger Games Trilogy, and, of course, 50 shades of Gray.
Steamy? Yes. Intimate? You Bet.
But I have also picked up a thing or two that has nothing to do with the sexuality.
To quote Christian Gray, in the first book, during his interview by Anna, he was questioned on how he attained his success:
Anna: ‘Maybe you got lucky’
Christian: ‘The Harder I work, the...
Don't want a boring, expensive, disappointing Valentine's Day? This year, have your Perfect Valentines Day!
Once a year, lovers around the world celebrate their love together, through various gestures, mostly dinner, gifts, travel, or whatever they desire. Whatever is 'Their Thing'. Lovers strive to celebrate their Perfect Valentines Day.
I love Valentine's Day, because it is the day where me and my husband first started dating. That was 29 years ago and I remembered that day clearly as yesterday. That feeling, the connection between us, the 'future' that I saw with him back then. I remember.
Every year we celebrate our Perfect Valentine's day. Like most couples, we chose a nice restaurant for dinner. Eating well is a big thing for us. It is 'Our Thing'. And of course, gifts, cards, kisses and hugs. And other unspeakable things (wink!)
Does it ever get bored? mundane? disappointing? HECK NO!
Every Valentine's day is a Perfect Valentines Day. Because we decided that it would be...
Happy Chinese New Year of the Rooster!!!!!!
As with every new year, there are changes that come into our lives.
This year, we have a new leader of the nation. There are a lot of noise about what he may or may not do.
But at the end of the day, no one can change your life. Only you can change your life.
Where you are today has nothing to do with your boss, your spouse, boyfriend or girlfriend and least of all a new government. You are where you are because that is where you want to be.
This may not make any sense to you.
You may not be happy with your job, your relationship, your business may be stagnant, your kids don't listen to you.
You are where you are because you are letting others dictate what you have and how you behave. It is time to stop blaming everyone else and take back control of your life. So here is how to be successful for the new year:
Patience: have patience in everything you do, nothing happens over night, but nothing will happen if you do nothing at...

A few days ago, during my reading hour, I came across this interesting principle. And if you are in the corporate world, you may find this interesting too.
It is called ‘The Peter Principle’. And here’s the Wikipedia definition.
The Peter principle is a concept in management theory formulated by Laurence J. Peter in which the selection of a candidate for a position is based on the candidate's performance in their current role, rather than on abilities relevant to the intended role. Thus, employees only stop being promoted once they can no longer perform effectively, and "managers rise to the level of their incompetence."
In my own words, this means that, in a corporate setting, people gets promoted based on their current abilities, until they promoted to a level where they become ‘incompetent’, and then the promotion stops.
I found this...
What is the 1 thing that successful people has the same amount as unsuccessful people?
Rich people have the same amount as poor people?
Sick people tend to cherish it more.
It can’t be bought. I can’t be traded.
Once it is spent you cannot get it back.
You can’t make more. You can’t have less.
The answer: TIME!
Every one of us has 24 hours a day, 1440 minutes, 86400 seconds. Time is the GREAT EQUALITY in LIFE. Humans, cats, dogs alike.
I have 24 hours in my day. So do you. So does our neighbors, friends, rich people, poor people, good people, bad people.
What makes us unique is how we spend our day. How successful people spend their day is different than how most of us spend ours. If you want to be successful, like I do, then I would suggest that you study how successful people spend their time.
Everyone has a different definition of success. Those that I see as successful may not be the same as yours. I admire Richard Branson, Jack...
