Friday Sharing w/You

Friday, February 1

Can you believe it’s the end of January already?

 

 

 

8Fs for this Friy souls.

Is the First day of February & is a Friday Free From French Fries because I have Vitamin‘F

Many people ask me how I can look younger than my actual age. Am I lucky or what? My response is very simple that is besides walking daily and taking my fish oil daily for natural source of omega-3, I have abundance of vitamin ‘F” for Friends. These varieties of friends are from the Middle East, Egypt, Jordan, Syria, India, Pakistian, America, Canada, Scotland, China, Hong Kong, Malaysia, Indonesia, Philippines, Vietnam and Australia also not forgetting our local mix. I branded them as “mix-grill” of Malay, Indian, Ang Moh, Hokkien, Teochew, Cantonesse, Hainanese, Hakka etc. Friends from all over the world who are all so different in characters and cultures. Do forgive me should I left you out. Interestingly, I can get along with all of them! Each one helps to bring out a “different” part of me, they are my vitamin ‘F’.

I will have fish-soup lunch every month with one and coffee and chocolate soufflé with another. I will have nasi briani lunch with my friends across the causeway in Johor which is fantastic and the price is reasonable. For the ladies, I can be polite with them and the crazy ones we can crack dirty jokes. The story tellers are filled with good old stories. I can sit down and talk about serious matters with one. Share jokes with another laughing a lot. I can listen to one friend’s problems and also listen to another one’s advice for me. My friends are like pieces of a jigsaw puzzle. When completed, they form my big magic box. A magic box of Funny bone, Serious & Younquie friends! They are my friends who understand me better than I understand myself. They’re friends who support me through good days and bad.

Great friends are good for our health and counts the benefits of friends as essential to our Quality Work; Quality Life. People with varieties of friends in their social circles have no time for depression. If you are like me enjoying Vitamin F constantly then you will also look younger than your real age. Believe it or not? Never has anyone guess my correct age when they first see me. Their guesses are always 10 years younger. To stay young like me, beside having varieties of friends you should always give, give, give & share & God will take care the rest.  I believe somewhere somehow I did left a gift in your drawer or someplace.

Thanks to Facebook, nowadays, I have more Friends on the social network. Many of my age are still skeptical about social network. I don’t know why? Life is too short to have worries and fear or risks. If millions are into it, you have to embrace technology and be a part of it. My face appear on my friends computer screen every day and I feel blessed that they care as much for me as I care for them. If ever you don’t see my face on your screen please remember that it is not because I have forgotten you but because I am a bit forgetful with my age. I will make my best to be on line with you while I still can.
Thank you for being one of my Vitamins ’F’. While there is breath in me, I will always keep in touch as often as I can over a cup of coffee or lunch. It is your call. We should try to see the funny side of things and laugh together and pray for each other in tough moments. I’m so happy that I have a stock of Vitamin F! In summary, we should value our friends and keep in touch with them. Thank you (谢谢)

I learned that we are here for only one purpose. To see how we are going to help our fellow friends. It is not about how good you are or how righteous you are – throw all these away. It is about where our consciousness lies in our friend heart. 

I also learned that everyone has something to teach. Me too, but not For Free, For a Fee and Fun too, when you provide the Fund……… if you have the Fund and want Fun, drop me a line at daniel@qualipreneur.com

FSY-HOPE One big Unexpected Quality Journey

As I reflect on Y2K+12, the year I started this blog “Friday Sharing w/You”, also the year I decided to give my own management consultancy business a kick-start and start travelling around the world with my family, with lots of exciting and scary things, no health, disability, life insurance and zero income. But here is this 3 little words that I feel have become very important to me in my coming retirement journey and FSY-HOPE it will enabled me to do things that I love to do, be it successful or unsuccessful. These three little words are UQJ – The Unexpected Quality Journey.

These three little words UQJ might not resonate yet in the business environment but ever since FSY-HOPE to use it, it has becomes my passion to push it further and has changed my perceptions of my new work and my new life. At 55, starting anew might not be easy but with FSY-HOPE there is always hope.
These three little words UQJ is full of Energy, Engagement, Entertainment, Enjoyment and Excitement. There sure are risks, dangers and uncharted paths, on the other hand there is opportunity, possibility, discovery, and most importantly there is FSY-HOPE of Quality Life. The people on this UQJ may spend some time on their own to reflect why they are chosen for this UQJ but they will not be alone for long as they will mix-up with different groups joining other people on their journey for new exploration to places of common interests, sharing quality stories with each other around pit-stops before moving on to explore new territories. Once you embark on the UQJ, the journey will not end because there is Energy, Engagement, Entertainment, Enjoyment and Excitement plus more curiosity, more new questions.

Y2K+12 has made my life blurry because suddenly and totally I have ‘no work’ and trying to adjust to ‘my new life’. But in a way, it helps me to see that this one big Unexpected Quality Journey has makes my imagination, creativity and helped me to be even more Friendly, Stronger and Younger in my journey.

Y2K+12 are an Unexpected Quality Journey for me. I have met people that I would never have met before in Japan; Korea; Taiwan; Hong Kong; Canada; USA; France; Brussels and Holland. During our New York trip, we met two couples from Vietnam who are living in Orange County, California. Also, I have the opportunity to spend my first ‘Thanksgiving’ overseas staying at my buddy’s home in Houston. The most unforgettable incident that we have encountered is in Paris with the pick-pockets. You can read the whole episode on one of my Friday’s blog dated Dec 14 2012 – My Holiday experience in Europe. This year, I travelled more on leisure and have come to realize that there is even more to learn on these trips than when I was travelling on my previous business trips. There are many new intriguing questions such as people in different country, their cultures and behind all these questions there seem to be more curious questions and I find that incredibly exciting.

FSY-HOPE for the day when I can introduce myself to organizations as a ‘Qualipreneur’ and talk to my clients about the potential of the Unexpected Quality Journey that we might embark on together to make the organization ‘work certainty’ and achieve Quality Work; Quality Life (QWQL). Even if organizations reject to embark on the Unexpected Quality Journey with me, this three little words UQJ will still be close to my heart and my gut to keep me feeling Friendly, Strong & Youthful with a little anxiety about the year ahead.

I have mentioned in my 1st blog of 2013 that my only resolution for this year is just one word HOPE

HOPE, as the old cliché says is not a business strategy.

To me, it is untruth.

All politicians, presidents and religious leaders of today’s world use HOPE as a catalyst. Even all business leaders who are so called inspirational Leaders understand that HOPE is very much a strategy. All those forecasting, budgets, market strategies, sales quotas, profitability etc, they all fall into this word HOPE. If you lose HOPE, fear eats into you and you lose yourself. HOPE is a sustainable value that inspires you to see a better world. Like trust, HOPE is fundamental, without HOPE there is no innovation, no iphone, ipad, etc and without HOPE there is no Monday, no Monday means no payday. Without HOPE you will not wake up. HOPE make you sit-up and move your butt, leave that little cubicle and become a Qualipreneur. Of course HOPE alone is useless, you have to anchor it to reality but it is a starting point of any unexpected journey. So now, HOW? – HOPE is your HOW.

If you want to make money and doing things right,  join me on this Unexpected Quality Journey. You just need to be a little more Focus, Smarter & Younique. To start is simple. But you have to make a Yes or No choice. For those who say No, they will stay safe in their own little cubicle comfort zone. For those who say YES, they are packing their luggage for an unexpected Quality Journey towards a Quality Work; Quality Life.

You will love the journey… drop me a line at Daniel@qualipreneur.com
