Entering Day #3

Today (December 19th, 2013) is my third day. What is happening? After so much dragging of my feet, distractions and – above all – demotivation, I acted. What am I acting on? First, my dreams and goals. Until three days ago, I was floating aimlessly. Following the flow. I recently resigned from a retail pharmacy store after being on the operations team for almost two […]

An Advent in a New Season

While I was with St. Columba’s Parish, Miri, Advent was the season people got excited over. Did you know that entering Advent means entering a new Liturgical/Church Calendar? After Advent comes Christmas – both day and season. But Advent or no Advent, life goes on for us. Some times in Advent we see people who lost their loved ones. Naturally, the family would make the […]

The Easy Step is Done…

After much delay, the easy step is done! Lo and behold, a print screen taken from http://www.AdvertWriter.com/quickbrochurecopy, my first microsite in years. But this is only the beginning in a long list of things-to-do!! Integrating Passions and Service Since 2008, I have been receiving creative briefs and sending my copy via email. My client was based in Johor Bahru. I was first in Kuala Lumpur. […]

An Exhausting but Rewarding Journey

It is hard to believe that after one stock take, numerous “No Plastic Saturdays” and nearly a thousand cartons of stock, I am still a SALES ASSISTANT CUM CASHIER at a healthcare & lifestyle retail pharmacy! After almost two months and over 170 gifts later, I am finding myself still enjoying the retail line. Learning Steadily When I joined the retail pharmacy, it was towards […]

Need to Learn to Sell

Competent white paper copywriters posses certain competencies in the art and science of white paper writing. Skills are the same: whether you are writing in-house or are an outsourced contractor/freelancer. Writing the white paper itself is merely a fraction of the whole process. And competent white paper copywriters know and understand that process. How did I began? After going through the materials over and over […]

Decide from a”Should” to “Must”

In my previous post, I argued that the most important key to joining the top 10% is by making a decision. By making a decision, you severe – or cut off – ties with alternatives and anything that sways you away from joining that top ten percent. Have you decided what you want? Do you know why you want it? My decision is this: I […]

So You Want to Join the Top Ten Percent?

BRIAN TRACY says that the top 10% of the most successful people in the world began in the bottom 10%. Albert Einstein grew up with the idea he would amount to nothing: could not read until the age of four and – worst – a Jew in Nazi Germany. Ludwig van Beethoven – now recognised a great musician and composer – was a horrible conductor. […]

Five British Universities with an Online Undergraduate Programme

Together we Achieve Sarawak Gemilang 2030 Brian Tracy, in many of his recordings, begin by saying “we are living in the most exciting time in human history for innovation and success”. More so in Malaysia where we are racing to becoming a high income nation by the year 2020. In Sarawak, we aim to be the richest state in Malaysia by 2030. Sarawak Gemilang 2030 […]

Beruk Putih dan Masyarakat Sarawak: Hope for a Renaissance

The Federation of Malaya has a lot to thank the Brooke Rulers. In their hundred years of personal rule – meaning no funding from the British Government or its colonial office or a body corporate with a large resource and influence – the united the peoples of Sarawak. They carved up the largest region forming Malaysia. On top of that, they changed – little by […]

Revolusi dan Perjuangan

Dalam setiap pemberontakan yang tercatat dalam buku teks Sejarah, tidak satu yang memperjuangkan "kemerdekaan" melainkan perjuangan Tunku Abdul Rahman. Cuba buka balik: hampir semuanya tidak berpuas hati dengan "kaedah kutipan cukai". Yang pelik lagi ajaib, bukannya orang-orang biasa yang memberontak, tetapi pembesar-pembesar yang mengutip cukai! Kalau tidak salah, konsep feudalisme lah nama yang sesuai. Mereka ingin mengekalkan hak pembesar mengutip cukai, dan menyerahkan hanya sebahagian […]
