Quality Leaders beget Quality employees.

Working in the corporate jungle has an overwhelming effect on your family and loved ones. And more are crying for work-life-balances. But, does your work impact the company you work or the company you working for impact your life balance? It’s a chicken comes first or egg issues. In our Unexpected Quality Journey, what we want to achieve is Quality Work; Quality life. Believe me that you have to put work-life-balances into the back burner. To achieve Quality life is totally different from wanting a work-life-balances and it has to be different. You balance things over decades because not every week may be balanced. When you put in your share of Quality work it will all balanced out after decades. A good example, if you look at how Japan instilled a quality culture after the war. It took Japan 20+ years to win back the war not by more killings in the field, but by flooding the field with Quality products that today everyone has it.

I believe that if you embark with FSY on this Unexpected Quality Journey, it will create a quality company not only to work for as it is also a company to work with. I learned and confirmed after working in the Corporate Jungle for 33 years, spending half of the time in Quality improvement projects that it all began with building Friendships, Sharing ideas & solutions to all challenging projects & a Younique playful fun working environment that strengthen and sustain the Unexpected Quality Journey.  Yes, as employers you have every right to demand quality work from employees, after all that is what they are employed for, but only when managers create such an environment worthy of it. Employees will never care to produce quality work.

Friendships, Sharing ideas & solutions & a Younique playful fun working environment is not about soft managers. A quality company embarking on the Unexpected Quality Journey will lead people into the heart and soul of Quality.


Why smart people do dumb thing?

Because they get all the A’s in your education. And funk in your life.
We have enough cases in our own backyard (The Dirty Truth of Singaporean)
1. Sex for grade trail
2. Sexual gratification to get business
3. Siphoning off $50million from church funds’
4. Extra martial affair with….

So what lesson can we learn? …….. There are 25 more alphabets beside A.
F, not failure, but Fun.
B – not below the mark of A, but Better than A,
C – Creative,
D- Doable.
E not that’s the End rather Energy, Enthusiasm & Empathy. And if there is
S – is for Street-Smart. And so on…

There is a bigger pool of Fun, Street-smart & Younique people with better than A grade. They are many Creative, Doable people which did all the reading, understand the business well. But to the society at large they are labeled C for Confusion & D for Disrupted kids. Sure these people are unable to command the power of “A”. But are we so grossly ignorant of human nature as not to know that a man may be very sincere in good principles, without having good practice?

My principles were sound; my practice would improve with practice. Especially driving over the unreasonably speed limit set by society. How to drive at 70km on a freeway? Now the new speed camera is mounted on Lamp post. No more cop over the overhead bridge. So now you have to glance at every lamp post and forget the car in front of you.


ABC of Money
Always Be Careful with your money

There is a commonly misunderstood risk that I believe a lot of people didn’t realize when they took up loan from the bank. I learned from the same Business Time newspaper that cost me only a dollar (Jan 1 2013 copy) the principle of Effective Interest Rate (EIR).
If you take a loan (or spent on a credit card) for $1,000 with an interest of $200 repaid in one amount after 12 months has an EIR of 20%. That same loan if paid 12 monthly installments of $100 balloons into an EIR of 41%

My advice for you in 2013
Frugality – Financial Freedom should be your priority. I believe if you have no mortgage you have no fear.
Save – A dollar saved is a dollar earned
You need to cut back on your lifestyle asset.



We basically created a material that would last forever but most of the time we used it only once. I hope to see more people should easily cut out plastic container and reused it one more time.









Caring is fiercely fighting for your success when you compete in the bloody field of business.

And those who were seen dancing were thought to be insane by those who could not hear the music …Fredrich Wilhelm Nietzsche

Suddenly, I have so much time to read books, and listen to music and suddenly I am much happier. Many friends say I have been working too hard and they are right. God who can’t bear watching and force a holiday on me.

Rearrange the letters in the word ’LISTEN’ to discover the related word – The Answer is SILENT

I teach something called The Law of Probabilities, which says the more things you try, the more likely one of them will work.

If you learn nothing else from reading all my Friday FSY postings, it is okay. Just remember this from Confucius’ thought ” …is that law control the lesser man, but right conduct controls the greater man”

Here’s to Your Quality

The work of taking time to deliver the customer requirement

If you believe that the population is getting older, you’ve never been to a shopping mall on a weekend….Doug Larson, United Feature Syndicate. From Reader’s digest, April 1994

If you don’t like the phrase “Empower the powerless” then change it to “Enabled the powerless” . Peter Ducker said “To try to build an organization against the weakness (powerless) frustrates the purpose of organization.”

If you ask your wife for breakfast in the bed…. What will be her answer……. “Sleep in the Kitchen”

Everyone have luck – Bad or Good

In Las Vegas there is no loser, only winners and donors

Life is not about big fish eat small fish or big fish that swims in small pond or small fish that swims in the ocean. Big or small fishes they all are still fish.

The late Stephen R.Covey 7 habits principle stated “Begin with the end in mind” The now FSYQualipreneur added onto this principle “Begin with the Beginning after the end is the mind.”

97% of people buying decisions are made on an emotional basis then later justified by logic. Because emotion stimulates the mind up to 3,000 times faster than rational thought processes.

Hone your skills not from the internet but from the area of your interest

Writing on the wall: “A life time of training for just 10 second” …Jesse Owens, the American track star in 1930s

If today, Chairman Mao Zedong is still alive in China. What happen to China?

‘Everything is possible’ is this a good value or.. ? Share your thought with me…

Someone say – This isn’t a good value because everyone thinks it’s possible to do your utmost to eliminate what you don’t want or get what you want

If communication [leadership] is to change behavior, it must be grounded in the desires and interest of the receivers …Artistotle

Hard Gifts are often used to grease the wheels of Guanxi, the Chinese term for relationships that help win jobs and promotions.
