01 Jan 1-1-11 My 5-Resolutions
Coach K.Rajagopal said “faith, patience and a concerted effort make it happen”. In this case patience is 14 years ! Nasib baik, in Unit Trust business, no need to wait that long. The right strategy, the right team and of course the right unit trust company “will make it happen” much, much sooner.
Still trying to figure out what to do, what goals to make and still wondering how your twenty-eleven is gonna look like ? Wonder no more, let me enlighten you, as I have been when I heard Jeevan on BFM 31-12-2010
5 Resolutions for 2011
Goals are “hopes” to do or you wish you have.
Resolutions are what you “want” to do. Not just hopeful or wishful thinking.
Resolution No.1 Surround yourself with BEST PEOPLE
How ? “You can’t choose your family but you can choose your friends”
The difference between you, 5 years later vis-à-vis you, now are “the people you meet and the books you read”. Surround yourself with great peeps – good friends & positive peeps (Toastmaster). Focus on great friends, and not focus on avoiding lousy friends.
Off course, read more & better books.
Resolution No.2 Resolve to use TIME EFFECTIVELY
How ? Divide your daily working or business time into 3 sections – pagi, tengahari & petang. An average executive (yang bekerja) has 2000 hours in a year (excluding overtime) or in 52 weeks. Plan your day before you start your day, plan the week before the week begins, plan the month before the month starts and off course plan your year before it starts. Have you ? Did you block cuti sekolah, public holidays and importants dates in your 2011 calender yet ? So go get organised.
Then decide “what you want to achieve in each section of the day. And the malam is time for yourself – reading, hobbies, family etc.
Don’t major in minor stuffs, rather “major in major things and minor in minor stuffs”
Resolution No. 3 Resolve to ACHIEVE your GOALS
After writing your goals down, then resolve to achieve them. How ? Not easy but its simple !
The 3 steps – write down goals, make plans to achieve them, work on the plans everyday. Remember to add the “right attitude” ie. Utilize every resources (money, capital, skill, network) you have.
Resolution No.4 Develop outstanding HEALTH
How ? Hydrate yourself with water (drink more water, bath more often) and eating better – eat real food (natural form). Also, move a lot more (exercise, be active, don’t sit too long, take the stairs).
When meeting freiends – do something else besides eating (meet over badminton & other non-eating activities, shopping’s good too !)
Resolution No.5 Resolve to be brutally OPTIMISTIC
Have an attitude of “I’ll always find a way”. “Every issue has a solution”
Be a little smarter. Optimistic is not being unrealistic, its like “Trust in Allah but tie your camel !” Change your approach until you achieve your results. Insanity is doing the same thing, over and over again, but expecting different results !
WE are surrounded by relationships, money and health but our inner most is “spiritual connection”. Our Qadha’ has been pre-destined for us, but I want my Qadar to be more quality than not. So, let’s do it together – be the best people, the efficient and effective sort, the healthy ones, the optimistic ones and reach our goals. Insya Allah.
So, resolve to “Raise your standards !”
