Friday Sharing w/You

Friday, March 1

WOW… March is here!

Before settling down to your 2013 Resolutions… Lose weight, exercise more, watch less television, read more books & walk the stairs. You are hurrying into the month of March. If you have still yet to move your butt or muscle on your resolutions, it is okay as someone said – better not to do than to do and regret having done it. March is a lazy month to slow down, have a rest and rethink the why-not apply the new-year resolution not just on personal life but into the workplace.  New Year’s resolutions are about deciding to be different. They usually involve actions like to stop old or unwanted behaviour, start new behaviour and continue the changed behaviour.  Why not apply the New Year’s resolutions in your work areas? I believe if you apply the New Year’s resolutions to your work areas it can have a direct effect on a person’s quality work and quality life especially if the resolutions include “to be a Fun person, learning Something new” or You do not delete emails from HSE Department.  For me, who is no longer working in the corporate world, my resolution is to continue promoting Quality Work; Quality life in my personal life and organizations or communities that engage me. But, what does that mean for your corporate workplace? Do you realize that they are many dead bodies in your office? Those who found their jobs and never start looking for work again. And yet they still ask for “work-life balance”? I believe as an organization, my suggestion for a New Year’s resolution is to make the workplace a place where Quality Work and Quality life for all.

It takes years to build Trust but it takes only a few seconds to destroy it.  Because we never tell good trusting story instead we gossip. To build trust we must learn to tell 6 stories. The 1st story is “My Story” as for the other 5, is in my new workbook, which is my mission to Coach, Champion and Catalyst, passing along my Crazy Entertaining Own experiences so that you will be able to do well in your effort to influence people..

What books are you reading today?

For those who found your job and forget how to look for work please read this book – What colour is your parachute? By Richard N. Bolles 2012 (please purchase the 40th Anniversary Edition).  Please look for work after you found your job because when an opportunity do comes, don’t ask why you are not given the opportunity. The worst case scenario is that you think people have to give you an opportunity to prove it (that will be in your dream). Also, please don’t tell me you are passionate about certain things and when given the opportunity you can prove it. Passion is an overly used word - most people have Passion but no Action – is just dreaming. 

My new workbook for my coming workshop, “The Unexpected Quality Journey Journal” is now with the printer.  I have included three very important skills that you have to learn, they are - Facilitation & Storytelling and the 3rd skill, I will only share with you when you have my workbook. If you have been ardently following my “Friday Sharing w/You” on every Friday, then by now you should be smart enough to figure out what is the 3rd skill I am talking about.

By the way, I am not the only one that retired early. Someone retired before 40. Do read The Sunday Times – Feb 24 “Me & My Money. You can do it if you don’t worry about money, money is just a medium of transaction. Somehow, it will comes when you are at the least worrying about it. Retirement is just another stage to be my own master. Would you like to report to yourself? If so, then you can retire early. 



Why does change have such a bad reputation?


We are just here temporarily so set your 3 goals that you want to achieve in your life. For me, my 3 goals are to be a proud parent; a teacher teaching Total Quality for a fee not free as well as to have fun whilst someone funding it; last but not least, to plant a tree so that the next generation can have a shade to rest and not forgetting Sharing as Sharing is Caring.

A simple dictum to live with… People don’t care how much you know until they know how much you care for them.

Success is when your student don’t need you anymore.


When people talk, listen completely. Most people never listen.- Ernest Hemingway

Storytelling is the most powerful way to put ideas into the world today.-Robert McAfee Brown

We seldom think of what we have but always of what we lack.-Schopenhauer



My FSY’s sharing is unscientifically and some are contributed by wife & children, friends, acquaintances. I write and share things that matter to me.

I understand that everyone’s attention span is very short and if you read till here, I would like to say thank you for staying with me till the end. It might be rubbishes to some people but I do know that there are some gems hidden to be picked in all rubbishes… Hope you have pick one or 2 gems?

FSY is your
Your Buddy

“No human face is exactly the same in its lines on each side, no leaf perfect in its lobes, no branch in its symmetry. All admit irregularity as they imply change; and to banish imperfection is to destroy expression, to check exertion, to paralyze vitality. All things are literally better, lovelier, and more beloved for the imperfections which have been divinely appointed, that the law of human life may be Effort, and the law of human judgment, Mercy.” -John Ruskin
