Edison's Philosophy

Thomas Edison is smart man and most of all, a very strong man. He never gave up and I admire that. He could have given up after the 10th failure but he didn't because his curiousity kept him at it.

Amazing man. He is so good in reframing himself and changing his thoughts into better ones. And that is not something easy to do. His positive thinking definately helped him alot in discovering the lightbulb.

That quote is so awesome. I mean, it's so cool to think that way. When people say they have tried and failed one million times, he would say try one million and one. He always believes in trying just one more time. And due to that, I admire him.

So self-mastery before any other mastery. Your thoughts are what determined your actions and your actions creates your results. That's why I read self-help books to help & push myself. I wanna be the author in my life.

I so dislike people who says that self-help is crap or that they all the same. They're not. Different authors have different opinions and you can choose which opinion makes more sense.

Some people may say that self-help authors are just bragging and that they don't really want to help you. Well, some are like that but not all. Some want to share their secret to success so that you can be successful because they believe that everyone deserves to be successful.

If a guy wants to give me tips to succeed, then, I'm taking them...who knows, maybe it does works. And if you wanna go through the hard way of success, itz up to you. If there's a short cut in front of me, I'm taking the short cut.

I love that quote. That was on National Treasure I think.

Anyways, thanks for your comment. The Wallflowers are one of my favorite bands. You should really hear their song "One Headlight." The lyrics are so awesome in that one. I really like when Jakob Dylan (Yes, as in Bob Dylan's kid ;)) says "I haven't changed but I know I ain't the same." Because I can totally relate!


So yeah. Anyhow, Have a good day! :-D

Much Ado About Our Healthcare

During this week, something terrible but hilarious when you looked back, happened to me.

It was a normal Monday morning. It was close to the end of the month, so I was awaiting for my salary to come in. I was just trying to just hold on till the end of the month. Typical monday. Nothing eventful yet.

Then, it was lunchtime.
I went to lunch with my colleagues.
I ordered myself a lovely nasi kukus with ikan keli. That means steamed rice with catfish for those of you who don't read malay. 

One of my colleague often order this and it always looked good so I decided to give it a try.

Bad mistake.

I ended up having a fishbone stuck in my throat. When you think of it, it's pretty silly. But it scared the living daylights out of me at that moment. I tried swallowing rice to push the fishbone down but after half a bowl later, I found it to be not working.

I heard from my dad when I was younger that, if a fishbone get stuck in your throat, you had to do an operation. And that only fueled my fea…

Design Thinking and Steve Jobs

This is going to be a long post and I apologize. 

Anyway my department meeting yesterday talked about design thinking and it only reminded me of Steve Jobs.

I have always loved Apple and Steve Jobs. I know Steve Jobs wasn't the greatest guy ever. He could have been nicer and etc. But this is not about that. This is about his vision, his beliefs and philosophy. I never quite realised how much I believed in Steve Jobs philosophy until I sat down and thought about it. 

I admired Steve Jobs philosophy of design first. I don't know if he was the first guy who made design thinking into a thing. Or if he is the one who popularize that thinking?

Minimalism. Simplicity. Clean. Aesthetics. User friendly. He made sure Apple designs abide by this. And this is what I have always loved about Apple. He made technology sexy, beautiful and cool. 

I never quite realised that I, myself, believed in these values.

But today, as I sat down and think, I realised that, the older I grow, the more I have tu…

Dear me,

I watched an anime where a girl managed to write a letter to her past self of ten years. True, that's not possible in reality but the concept of that is interesting. She wrote to her ten years younger self to avoid her regrets. She wanted her past self to change certain decisions in the past so that her current self won't have any regrets.

Personally, I wouldn't want to tell my past self to change her decisions to avoid regrets. Do I have regrets? Yes. But I won't change them because I learnt from them. And that has been grow as a person. So I don't quite regret that.

However, if I could write a letter to my past self, it would be fun. If I were to write to my ten years younger self, that would be my 13 year old self. And this is what I would love to say.

Dear me,

Hello there. This is your 23 year old self. I know, it's unbelievable. You can barely imagine yourself at that age currently. 
I still remember being 13. Vaguely. My memory isn't that great.

But I remem…
