Stop whining, make it happen.

Face the problem / challenge head on.

What really makes you happy? It’s not really that hard to figure it out.

Maximize your happiness, within budget.

Sometimes you need to have clear understanding of the reasons causing your problems. Sometimes you don’t, so long as you figure out the solution.

Nov 14th to 15th, 2019 – the meet, 24hr shift, and a locksmith’s work ethic

From a position of strength, remember.

Hard work being the absolute foundation.

Oct 14th, 2019 – the sharks

Calm down and strategize. In business it’s rarely the issue of justice or injustice that determines the best course of action.

Keep questioning your views and beliefs. Keep on exploring for the most probably right answers.

Avoid getting in too deep on the matter itself. Study the context and the actors.

Oct 10th, 2019 – anchor of attention

Windows of opportunity. You leap at them right away, or let go and move on to hunt for the next ones.

Keep calm, tackle, and deliver.

Anchor of your attention: your vision and character building.

Strive to let out the greatness in you.

You don’t need to show the whole world what you can do. You just need those relevant people to be aware.

Strive to be the best you, all the time.

Study not the problem, study the people.

Offer your suggestions not. Invite invitations.

Oct 4th, 2019 – always ask, and deliver

Clarity and perspectives from conversations with different people.

Accept that life is unfair, yet carry a positive attitude in crafting the changes in your own story.

Always ask: does it really matter (to my goals and mission)?

Ruthlessly get the distractions and the 80% non-essentials out of your way.

Reminisce the good old days, cherish the precious moments, then move on to create better tomorrows.

Prepare for the future, not the past.

You really don’t know. What you can do then is to try maximizing your odds of success. Then pray.

Planning to prepare is easy and fun, but it’s the actual work of preparation that gets you closer to your goals, one inch at a time.

What you’ve learned, what you’ve created, do not matter as much as what you have delivered.

What do you deliver, everyday?

Oct 3rd, 2019 –

How do you keep yourself hungry?

Are you being inspired? If not, are you wasting your time?

Wake up early. Connect. Create.

You can invest with your contrarian view, but you don’t trade against the trend.

Enter a project with the commitment to your desired outcome, impulse for instant gratification.

Learn this: when to let your brilliance shine and when to hide it. Strategically.

The best response to a rude treatment is head held high indifference.

Understand this: you don’t need to lower yourself to get approval or cooperation or assistance. Utilize your professionalism, brains, and toughness instead.

Review your grand scheme regularly. Review your strategy and prioritization all the time. What’s the best thing, or anything, you can do right now to move towards that vision.

Be grounded. Be centered. Where you are doesn’t define who you are. Guard your mind, heart, mission, and vision.

Know who you are, know what you stand for, know where you stand in the universe, know why you are here. Strive to live up to your calling every single day of your life.

The platform. Know when and where to let out your passion and crazy creativity. It’s not in the middle of a high stake chess / poker game.

Sep 30th – Oct 2nd, 2019 – the ultimate realist

The ultimate realist has her eyes on the goals and no time for trivial emotions.

The perspective, it changes everything.

Being who you really are turns out to be the best strategy.

Be humble. Be tenacious.

Make a decision. Stick to the consistent execution of your strategy until change warranted.

Live a simple, focused life.

Look straight at the problem / challenge and try to come up with  concrete solutions. It releases stress too.

Sep 29th, 2019 – false starts

Budget your time for non-essential activities, and never ever exceed it.

Commit yourself and your time to the top priorities in life.

You have got to choose, the one top priority.

Sep 24th & 25th, 2019 –

Keep the positivity circle. Make the change. Stay away from whining, complaints and negativity.

Write down your values, rules, and principles. They will guide you through your daily challenges.

Sep 20th, 2019 – perspective

How do you stick to your mission and vision in the midst of daily hustle and distractions?

Examine your daily activities. Make sure you are prioritizing the right stuff, the truly important stuff.

Perspective, that’s what you need. To stay calm, to stay on track.

Sep 18th, 2019 – 5am quip

Do not stop at questioning. Create an alternative, your alternative, and make it happen.

Start by laying the first brick.

Attack!Mindset. Remember?

Where’s your audience?

Sep 17th, 2019 – regale & taciturn

Open up your mind to the reality, be cool with it.

In a game where con artist took the throne, honesty is not valued.

Integrity is not equal to honesty.

First, show some self respect.

What is “now”? The “moment”?

Sep 16th, 2019 – live in the moment

Live in the moment.

Scrap the plans and script and scenes. Live, touch the reality, improvise.

Sep 3rd & 4th, 2019 – the people

Listen and observe, it’s the people, not the matter.

Passion matters only when your competency lifts you to the high-level game. It’s a differentiator, not entry ticket.

Be an inspiration.

What if you get laid off today? What if your business goes bust today? What is your plan B?

Work as if there is no plan B. But do have one kept in your desk drawer.

Don’t try to change yourself, you won’t succeed. Instead change your tool, medium, approach, strategy, or people.
